The £5 product every Makeup Kit should have

I am most certainly late to the party with this one but this beauty has quickly become a holy grail product for me. It is so inexpensive and one I believe everybody should include in their makeup bag. It is very similar to the Bobbi Brown shimmer brick and for only £5 it is a must have makeup staple.IMG_9663

The Seventeen Shimmer Brick comes in two different shades Pink Bronze or Gold Bronze, I chose the Pink Bronze and it has 4 different shimmery, beautiful shades with each as pretty as the last. Two lighter pink shades perfect for highlighting or using as eyeshadow and two darker bronze shades ideal for bronzing up your face or applying to the crease of your lids.

My favourite thing about this little palette is that it is so multifunctional, you can use it as a bronzer, highlighter, eyeshadow, blush and you can also mix all four shades together to create a beautiful colour that will add dimension to your face when applied to beneath your cheekbones.



At £5 it is a steal compared to the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick which is £33,


Have you tried this one before?

    This looks lovely! I’ve wanted to try the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks for ages but have always been put off by the price, I’ll definitely give this a try next time I’m in Boots. Thanks for sharing!
