The Maybelline Bricks Bronzer is a new addition to the Maybelline stand. They are on fire at the minute with releases and are constantly updating which is really brilliant! So here are all the deets on this new release and my honest first impressions too!
The Maybelline Bricks Bronzer seems to only come is one shade 01 Blondes. You get 7 grams of product within the palette.
Maybelline describe is as their ‘all in one bronzing palette’ as it has a matte bronzer on one side. And then a shimmery more colourful side on the other.
The packaging on this palette is a bit pants in my opinion. It’s really old school hollow plastic with a clear lid and just doesn’t do anything for me really.
So let’s give both sides a swatch and see how they far on the skin, shall we? 🙂
I’m going to dig into the matte shade first.
Here it is swatched with my finger on one side and then blended into the skin with a brush on the other.
It’s a warm and not very pigmented bronzer. You really have to build it up.
Then here’s the shimmery part of the Maybelline Bricks Bronzer.
And again swatched with my finger on one side and blended with a brush on the other.
The shimmery side is kind of underwhelming too. It’s more pink than bronze which is not surprising really looking at it in the pan. Once it’s blended out on the skin, it gives very little pay off.
Both sides are a little powdery too. This is the pan, after I finished swatching.
Overall, I just think it’s ok, nothing to be too excited about!
I picked up the Maybelline Bricks Bronzer in Boots, but it doesn’t seem to be listed on the website yet which is a bit of a pain! It cost me €11.49 which isn’t particularly cheap I know! Here’s a link to it on the Superdrug site in case you want to see any more information on it.
