Bobby Brown Shimmer Bricks Swatchie swatchie..

Ok..I really like these blushes! Not so much for BB other products, but this thing kinda one of my obsessions...sigh.

I love these blushes, cause sometimes I just dont want to put too much on my cheeks. I usually concentrate on my I always tone down the rest of the face (cant afford walking around lookin like a hooker at skul). I tried with many brushes..skunkie if I want it to be more subtle or buffer brush for brighter result .

Pro: They are very good products. Very versatile, since you can use them pretty much for everything. You can use it as eye shadows (there 5 different "bricks" to chose from), all over blush or highlighter. Some of them such as Rose, Apricot and Peony can be a very good blush..while Brownie or bronze would be good to contour your face. At the end of the day no matter what color youre using, they always have the lighter side on top (highlight) and the pigmented one at the bottom (contour/blush)...thats why me likey..

Con:Pricey! At $38/pop...well thats why its an least I dont use drugs.

I've always wanted to try Bobby Brown's shimmer sticks..but my wallet will not allow me too...

To answer your question:
I haven't got around to trying these Missha products yet, so I wouldn't know what to recommend for you. But for $ might as well try everything =) Other bloggers raved about their BB cream. But personally, I've never tried it.

The San Gabriel Store address:
220 W Valley Blvd #102
San Gabriel, CA 91776
(626) 282-9600

Let us know what you get! Hopefully, they still will have a wide selection.
