If you do celebrate Valentine's Day, then happy lovers day to you. Hubby and I don't care for it as we celebrate dates that are "us". I also take issues with how manufactured the day has become. We had brunch with a couple friends of ours and are invited to dinner elsewhere. I thought since I had a couple of hours in between, I can show you my babies. By my babies I mean these:

I love Bobbi Brown (BB) shimmer bricks. I bought my first one (Gold) back in 2007 and I've been hooked ever since. I love that they are multi-tasking products. You cab use the stripes separately as eyeshadows or swirl your blush brush on them and use as blush or highlighter. They are pretty pricey (about $50 CAD) but I love them non the less, they're my favourite highliter.

gold
Gold - this one is gorgeous when I have a tan. I actually mainly use this one in the summer as it sorta clashes against my normal (non tanned) skin and since summer is short and I hardly have a tan, this is my least used shimmer brick. I think it just pops more against a darker skin and gives it an amazing golden glow. Gold shimmer brick was a limited edition product.

apricot
Apricot - this one has got to be my most used one. I love it on top of blushes such as Eversun or Cantaloupe. Makes for an amazing peach flush. Apricot shimmer brick is also limited edition and works for all skintones.

Photobucket
Nude - I scored this one not too long ago and is ideal for a nice flush on my cheeks. It makes me look fresh but the colour is not very obvious, it mostly gives you an amazing glow. Nude is a great no makeup cheek product, you look like a better version of yourself without much effort. Another limited edition product!

nectra
Nectar - I pretty much just got this last week; it's part of BB's spring collection. Nectar is very pigmented and can be used as blush or highliter. I like that it's a pinkier coral so I imagine it flattering a wide array of skintones. I love the individual colour stripes in Nectar. They are all very pigmented and I have a feeling I will be using this product quite a lot as blush and eyeshadow.

Is there a certain product you guys collect? Does anybody else love shimmer bricks? Which ones do you have?
