Current Obsessions

Hi ladies,
Yes here we go again with more cheek products! You know it's my weakness.

These are the super affordable Shimmer Bricks by Famous by Sue Moxley.


This one is my ultimate favourite! It's Shade 2 Rose Gold.
I've been using it for at least half a year and I cannot see any dent on it!
It gives you the most cheeky and gorgeous pink and gold glow.
It you want more of a highlight just grab some of the light colours and if you want a more intense pink then just swirl your brush on the pinks.

I use this next one for when I want to go for a more beach godess look. It's the Medium.
There is an inconsistency on the manes as this one has no shade or name and I think this is because this was the very first one I bought probably more than a year ago and maybe they changed the names since then.
Again this one is quite customisable and you can make it lighter or darker depending on where you swipe your brush.

I think this is my second favourite. 
It's a mixture of the two above really. Very interesting colour. This one is Shade 1-Golden Rose.
This one is my go-to at the moment just because I still have a tiny bit of a tan and it looks great giving me that extra tan and some rose glow at the same time.

I cannot explain the joy I get from these 3 best friends!
They are super pigmented, hand and super affordable. I saw them a few weeks ago in Superdrug for £3 each! I was very tempted to get more but as you can see I've been using this for ever and honestly there no sign of usage! I haven't even used 1% of the product. Incredible.

No, I don not have the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks so I cannot compare them. I don't think I ever will. Why pay extra if you can get an equal result for a mini fraction of the price?

I do have a few MeMeMe equivalents of these. They are lovely but these are way better in terms of quality, colour pay off and longevity.

Seriously, just try them and let me know. You will not regret it!


PS: Super random ramble. I went today to Virgin club/gym as a guest with my colleague who goes there and wow...what a lovely gym! It was a bit different from my gym LA Fitness. We did some Body Combat then we went to the jacuzzi and then the sauna. I loved it and we were chatting all the way.
However I will stay at my gym. I just cannot see the point of paying £100+ for a membership per month. Unless I win the lottery or if I reduce my monthly budget for make-up purchases...which ain't gonna happen! 

Have a lovely Friday.

    So pretty. They remind of the Bobbi Brown shimmer bricks, not that I have any. Where do you get Sue Moxley products? Are they a UK only thing?<br />xx<br />Alicia
