A long time ago in a not so distant past Bobbi Brown released my VERY favorite collection to date, Blushed Pink. I sweated so hard on the Bobbi Brown Blushed Pink release, you’ve no idea. One of the main reasons I loved it so much was the release of four Sparkle Eye Shadows that Bobbi has yet to reintroduce or recreate in any collection.
One shade, which I’m wearing here, happens to be my HG pink eyeshadow shades, it was called Ballet.
Fast forward a few seasons and the Bobbi Brown Beach Club Collection releases and much to my delight the new Bobbi Brown Metallic Cream Eyeshadow in Pink Oyster is a super dupe for Ballet.
Ahh all is right with my makeup world again!
Bobbi Brown Metallic Long Wear Cream Eyeshadow is a luscious sparkling cream shadow that can be used along or combined with your favorite matte or powder shadow.
I actually tried a few Bobbi Brown Metallic Long Wear Cream Eyeshadows prior to the Beach Club Collection’s release but never got around to reviewing them (busy bee here!).
These are pretty darn incredible since the formula blends flawlessly and builds up super easily going from subtle to bolder in a quick dab. Although Bobbi deems them Metallic I feel like they have alot more sparkle and shimmer in the finish, hey I’d know right? Total shimmer-aholic. Some of the darker shades do have a metallic gleam but these lighter pastels from Beach Club have more of a delightfully sparkly finish.
Speaking of the shades…..
All these shades in this particular release remind me of the ocean and seashells. The shades are all pastels but still manage to feel very Summer-y.
Surf is a pale shimmering sky blue (think of a beautifully flawless sunny day! The color of the sky would match this shade!).
Opal is an opalescent pink but runs towards being more white with a sheen of iridescent pink (think big fluffy clouds on your flawless sunny day!).
And my favorite of the lot, an easy dupe of Bobbi Brown Sparkle Eyeshadow in Ballet, Pink Oyster (think of the inside of a seashell) is a shimmering pink.
Anyone who can’t pull off pastel may have a little problem with Surf as it’s a tad difficult to blend out well to create a softer look. The other shades just work but Surf is a tad tricky.
If you hate shimmer I’d probably avoid some of these lighter shades as I felt the finish was more of a sparkly one than a metallic one.
- Fans of shimmery eyeshadows!
- Anyone looking for a softer Summer look that works well on fairer skin.
- Women who adore cream eyeshadow!
- Anyone who hates sparkle/shimmer in their shadow.
- Anyone who isn’t keen on pastels.
The shadows are stunning in my opinion particularly Pink Oyster which is an absolute must have out of the four new colors released. I got Opal and Surf to test out but I immediately went to Bobbi Brown to get myself Pink Oyster as it’s such a beautiful shade. The colors aren’t quite traditionally Summer-y but they still manage to make me think of a warm day at the beach! If you aren’t up for the bronzy gold warm look that most brands release as part of their Summer line up than I think you’ll happily fit in with the Bobbi Brown Beach Club release.
