Product rave and bargain alert!
17 Instant Glow Shimmer Brick in Gold Bronze forms part of the Instant Glow collection and the minute I laid eyes on it I knew I had to buy it. As it happened I was handed one at the Boots Summer Press Show but I would have quite frankly bought one if I hadn't as it is such a steal for a great product.
The Instant Glow Shimmer Brick is described as 'a shimmering powder that creates a beautiful golden bronzed glow. Sweep a brush through all 4 shades then lightly dust onto cheekbones'.
Shimmer Brick in Gold Bronze consists of 4 shimmery shades ranging from light to dark - silver/white, taupe, golden bronze and dark bronze. They are super smooth and soft to apply, not gritty at all. Individually the shades work just as well as eye shadows but my preferred use of the Shimmer Brick is as a highlighter on my cheeks.
I have become a little addicted to the glow and radiance I can achieve by using a highlighter and just love the instant lift effect that it gives to my face. I have quite a few highlighting products in my collection and still I keep getting drawn to more! I love watching the sun catch the shimmer.

Yesterday I applied this on top of Benefit's Cha Cha Tint and it gave me a beautiful and naturally radiant coral glow which lasted all day.
Drawing comparisons with the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick (the BB version has 5 strips and costs £30.50) the 17 Instant Glow Shimmer Brick is a beautiful product at an extremely affordable price. Snap it up.
17 Instant Glow Shimmer Brick is available in Gold Bronze and Pink Bronze and cost just £4.99 each
