Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow Review & Swatches
There’s something to be said about cream eyeshadow that locks on and wears without creasing all darn day.
Take a peek!
Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow isn’t a new product but it gets its own special release this Spring courtesy Bobbi’s new Lonely Makeup Bag campaign.
Several new shades have been added to the general catalog and a new focus on these extra long wearing cream eyeshadows comes into play. These come in little glass jars with screw tops. It deserves to be mentioned they have a great formula in terms of expiration. I’ve had some a year and they still have a freshly purchased creamy finish that hasn’t harden or dried out over time.
The formula has a certain denseness to it but still manages to have a creamy, easy to blend formula. I typically suggest fingers for application when it comes to cream shadows as they blend easier this way but in the case of these I actually recommend using some sort of flat top brush to get into place. A swipe across eyes will lend beautiful color but I suggest building for great intensity and drama.
The joy of the product is most definitely the wear. Without primer I can get a six hour wear from these before they show minor creasing. I find they have a mattifying finish that doesn’t dry down too quickly and gives you just the right amount of time to blend or build. Color with primer does have a better intensity and wear time showing at least a 10-12 period without creasing and/or fading.
Smoky Topaz and Berry Noir
Surprisingly the formula seems ideal for oily lids but you might want to prep a fair bit before hand as my best friend proclaims they crease on him very easily.
My drier lids don’t have an issue and I can get through my day without a hiccup.
As far as cream shadows go they are some of the nicer ones I’ve tried. The formula is very smooth and applies easily plus color pay off is excellent. I also like the fact the shades are very “grown up” as Bobbi doesn’t really offer a catalog of bright shades but concentrates on more neutrals and naturals to flatter older, aging eyes.
Overall, if you’re looking for something with a long wear in a creamy eyeshadow formula these prove a solid pick!
