17 Glow Shimmer Brick: Pink Bronze

Hi dolls! Yet another product from 17 I've got to show you - this time it's the new Shimmer Brick in 'Pink Bronze'. I've been looking for a powder highlighter for a while now and I quite liked the look of this, so it went into my shopping basket without giving it a lot of thought. I was a bit worried that it would be too dark for me, as most bronzers make me look either dirty or orange, but I was wrong - it's pretty much only shimmer without a lot of 'colour' to it. As you can see on the swatch below, the only brick with some colour pay-off is the darkest one at the bottom. This might be a reason for some of you not to buy or like this product, but I am actually really happy with it as I was only looking for a nice highlighting powder. The shimmer is very fine and subtle - which is important as you don't want to look like a human discoball right? I simply swirl my brush across all four bricks and apply it lightly onto my cheekbones (on top of my blush) which adds definition to my face and lets my cheekbones stand out a bit more. All in all, I'm really happy with 17's Shimmer Brick and it has already become a staple in my make up routine. Thumbs up! :) xx
