So I may have mentioned in my review of the Maybelline Colour Drama Lip Paints that I’ve been seeing so many releases from Maybelline online it’s not even funny. The only problem is they take forever to reach here in little ole Ireland. So basically I’m reviewing them as I find them. Today’s winner is the Maybelline NY Bricks Bronzer
Packaging is boring as hell, simple plastic compact. The only fancy thing about it is that it’s rose gold in colour. I like that the lid is see through so that you can see the product through the packaging. The shade that I have is 01 Blondes and it’s , as far as I know, the only shade that this product comes. The fact that is has 01 in front of it’s name though indicates that Maybelline might be working on darker shades to be released in the future but don’t quote me on that.
Inside the palette you get a very generous amount of bronzer and a not so generous amount of highlighter which drives me crazy about this palette because I love the highlighter more than I love the bronzer.
That being said the bronzer isn’t bad, it’s got a great buttery formulation that is super smooth when applied and the pigmentation is pigmented enough that you get something applied onto the skin but it’s not too pigmented that you get an over load of product. As Goldilocks once said …It’s just right.
The real star of this palette though is the highlighter! You can see fro the palette that it is very similar to the Bobbi Brown shimmer bricks (I’ve never owned them but I have swatched them and I think this is nicer) The pigmentation on these is so beautiful and rich and super glowy on the skin. This is the highlighter for you if you’re looking for the JLO Glow.
My only complaint is that I wish there was more of the highlighter in the palette because I’m going to run out of the highlighter and still have a ton of the bronzer let 😦 other than that it’s a great new product from Maybelline and I can’t wait to get my hands on the other new releases they bring out. Oh this retailed for 8.49 euros and I got mine from Boots as always
