On the upper left is Bobbi Brown’s Copper Diamond Shimmer Brick. The one on the upper right is Flirt! Shimmer Rocks Peach Glow All-Over Illuminator and the one on the bottom left is Bobbi Brown’s Apricot Shimmer Brick. They are all very similiar, save for one thing – the price! The Bobbi Brown bricks run $38, while the Flirt! brick runs $16. (I don’t know what was going on, but I was lucky enough to get my brick on sale at Kohl’s, where Flirt! Cosmetics is carried exclusively, on sale for 50% off – $8!).
So, while we are all cutting back on our spending, I find it hard to justify spending $38 for something I can get a damn close dupe of for almost 1/3rd the price. I understand brand loyalty, and the lure of the Platinum Pink Brick, but I gotta admit I love saving the $$ to treat myself to many little things, if possible. And if I can do that, and avoid a sunburn, then all the better.
