The Perfect Flush & Glow


Bobbi Brown are always on point with their face products. I have countless blushes, bronzer's and highlighters from the brand and they are always my go-to's.

 I was browsing my local Bobbi Brown counter trying to talk myself out of a purchase and instead up walking away with two new products to add to the collection. I have had my eye on the Nectar shimmer brick for a while now. The coral shades are unlike any other highlighter I own and as soon as I saw it, I knew I had to own it. I held off for a few weeks, but temptation finally took over and I ended up buying one for myself as a little treat. Could I walk away satisfied with one item? Of course not, the newly formulated blush in Pretty Coral caught my eye and it compliments the shimmer brick so perfectly I couldn't leave without picking one up. 

This combination has been my absolute favourite over the last few weeks. Corals are my favourite blush shades as they compliment my skin tone so nicely, and it keeps the summer glow lingering just a little longer before Autumn arrives. Bobbi Brown have re-formulated their blushes to look more like a stain on the skin, rather than powder, which is perfect for those who prefer the natural flushed look. I love to layer these products as they work to together so beautiful, they are a match made in heaven. The shimmer brick doesn't come off as pink as it looks in the packaging. It gives you that perfect warm glow, as if you've been naturally sun kissed. 

A quick swipe of Pretty Coral followed by a dusting of Nectar shimmer brick equals the perfect flush and glow. Hats off to you Bobbi Brown, you have absolutely nailed these products.
