A big hello to everyone,
This review talks about a multipurpose product from Bobbi Brown – a brightening brick in the shade ‘Coral’. I say multipurpose because it can be used a blush, a bronzer, a highlighter and for eye makeup as well.
Your go-to product for a lit-from-within glow, Brightening Brick in Coral combines the warmth of a bronzer and the soft flush of a blush to give medium skin tones gorgeous, subtle luminosity. For the most natural flush, our Pro Artists recommend a combination of bronzer and blush—Brightening Brick has both, plus a perfect, subtle glow.

My Experience with Bobbi Brown Brightening Brick Coral:
The packaging is standard and classy Bobbi Brown style in black. It’s a sturdy compact plastic. The closure is magnetic, which is a plus. The upper flap has a mirror inside, so it can be used whenever wherever. Overall, it gives a luxurious feel.
No fragrance from the shades.
I was looking for a blush when the store lady suggested me this. She explained to me how I could use it as a blush, bronzer, highlighter and an eyeshadow too. The ‘Brightening Brick’ is available in 6 shades – Coral, Tawny, Pink, Pastel Peach, Pastel Pink and Cranberry. Each shade caters to different skin shades. I opted for Coral as it is perfect for my medium skin tone.
The pan is divided into 6 different shades of neutral pink which, when swirled together, result in a coral shade. The shades contain a hint of shimmer which gives a subtle glow on the cheeks without making me look too shiny. I use it during the day at my work and I have even used it without a foundation and it still makes my cheeks look amazing. The color, when applied to the cheeks, gives that natural looking soft glow, as promised by Bobbi Brown.
It’s perfect for a subtle daytime look or even for evening time when you have done heavy eye makeup. The last shade in the pan, which is on the rightmost corner, can be used a highlighter alone. There are a lot more possibilities and you can play around with the colors and combinations. This brick gives me that fresh healthy glowy look for a good 4-5 hrs. I am loving it!!!
Pros of Bobbi Brown Brightening Brick Coral:
• Luxurious packaging.
• Multiple uses in one compact pan.
• ‘Coral’ offers lovely shades.
• Pigmented shades.
Cons of Bobbi Brown Brightening Brick Coral:
• Expensive, but then it’s Bobbi Brown.
IMBB Rating: 5/5
Would I Recommend/Repurchase Bobbi Brown Brightening Brick Coral?
I would surely buy one of the other combinations, ‘Tawny’ maybe. And, I would definitely recommend to anyone who prefers to add that pretty color to their cheeks.
