look an awful lot like this?
Cult of Shimmer
The Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks are something of a cult favorite. They’ve been out and loved for years. As someone who isn’t inclined to be drunk on highlighter, though, they do little for me in terms of the excitement department. On top of that, for $48 the cult can keep their kool-aid.
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Dupe – Revlon Highlighting Palette
I was in Target and happened to see (as one does, ahem) this five-shade Revlon highlighter palette on sale for under $5 (regularly $6) and couldn’t help but think, “That looks awfully like a shimmer brick.” Lo and behold, down to the colors, it’s mighty similar.
But … Revlon
I’m still not sure how to feel about Revlon these days. I’m still disturbed by what that organization tolerated from Delpani. I haven’t purchased any of their products since then.
But lately I also can’t help but feel like there are scumbags everywhere, at every level. Boycotting every company that has high-level scumbags means I need to start basically making everything in my life on my own. Not to mention there are a ton of good people who are employed by Revlon who would probably be hurt well before some C-level douchebag would.
It’s a catch 22. It sucks! Fortunately Physician’s Formula has a similar product too.
