Happy New Year & Bobbi Brown's Party Shimmer Brick

Hi everyone! It's been a while since I've posted as life has gotten busy lately, but I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all so much for your support and comments throughout the year. I wish each and every one of you a happy and safe New Year's Eve and I hope that 2012 brings you all great things! 

I thought today would be an especially appropriate time to feature my new Bobbi Brown Party Shimmer Brick. I really like this highlighter as it gives such a pretty golden glow and can double as eye shadow as well. 

Below is a look at the swatches blended out. As you can see the shimmer is not overly metallic but it does have a noticeably luminous effect. The powder does not seem to be as finely-milled as some other recent, more natural-looking highlighters such as Chanel's Pearl Glow Highlighting Powder, but still it's very pretty and when the two shades are mixed together the result is a flattering sheer, pale gold along the lines of NARS Albatross.

Cheers to the New Year!
