You NEED This: Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Shore Review and Swatches

Bare Study was the MAC Paint Pot that changed the game on me. I was never a big lover of the Paint Pots when they came out but Bare Study changed all of that for me. It’s a boring beige nude that is a must have in my opinion since it brightens my eye area up, gives me a natural look, or works beautifully to adhere pigment to my eye.

I’m cheatin’ on Bare Study this week with Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow in Shore.

You NEED this!


What is it?

A smooth creamy eye shadow.

The Good…

Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow has never been a favorite of mine. I tried it a while back ago in this really bad shade of brown and after that I never went back for more.

In steps Shore and changes my thoughts and life forever, god help us all if this is an LE (trying to confirm at the moment).

Where as Paint Pots are a bit harder in texture, Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow is velvety smooth butter for your eyes. This blends out like a pure dream and Shore is that perfect shade of delicious for creating a wonderful nude eye look or barely made up look. The color is a soft matte beige and it manages to refresh, brighten, and light my eyes up like nothing else I own in my collection currently.

This is one of those boring shades of beige you’ll probably pass up on quickly because hey what’s exciting about beige? But have someone at a counter try it on, I guarantee you’ll be delighted with the results particularly if you’re a no makeup kinda gal. This is the shade you pick to wake your tired eyes up, this is the shade you use when you want to go with a dramatic lined eye or a cat eye, this is the shade you pick when you want to “cut your crease” with a natural brown or beige shade, this is the shade you use as a base to make your bolder shades more vibrant and beautiful!

Can you tell how in lust I am?

I absolutely adore this and I can easily see myself hitting pan

The Bad…

Nada bad to say about it. Loving hard on it.

Who Might Like It?

  • Anyone who likes minimal makeup looks!
  • Anyone who wants a base (much like Benefit Lemon Aid) to wake up eyes, freshen them up, and make them flawless.
  • Anyone who likes a nude base to create a neutral, natural eye look!

Who Might Not Like It?

  • Anyone who prefers bolder, louder shades of color.

Final Thoughts….

The shiz will fly about how Bare Study is the better of the two deals in this situation as hey you do get alot more Paint Pot for alot less in this case however you will not get a better formula than Bobbi Brown Long Wear. The creamy texture is so gorgeous that it’s worth the higher price tag and smaller size. Shore is a must have in my opinion and a total Muse Approval for purchase.  Shore was released with the new Bobbi Beach Club Collection which is available now on counters.

Love it.

I think you will too! Totally boring shade but too beautiful to pass up!

Did anyone haul Shore?

  • Kimber

    Oh do I love her cream shadows. I was wondering about this one – but I can see now it’s a must have. (right along with most of the beach collection)

    There you go, convincing me again that something is excellent (and you haven’t failed me yet!).

    • the Muse

      ha Kimber 😀 so flattered! I think you’ll REALLY love this hun!


    Oh muse that looks really pretty but very similar to the benefit creseless creams!!!! altough this looks like a much better colour then the ones i own

    • the Muse

      linda hate the feel of benefit creaseless creams hun 😛

  • coco

    I waited and waited for the beach club launch and ran out and bought this straight away. I love it!

  • Robyn

    i can see my self mistaking this for concealor in my stash a good few times

  • Ceriene

    I’m getting this for sure now. Glad to see it got a thumbs up from you, Muse!

  • Nicole

    Excellent review, I am going to pick this up this weekend. I love this shade for everyday wear!

  • JoElla

    I have never tried her cream shadows, but this one is really tempting me.

  • The Beauty Alchemist

    Ha, I get very excited about Beige shadows. Really. They work so well on me and I have a lot. Beige, light gold, tan …..

    Sadly, creams ( incl. BB 🙁 melt on me big time with rare exceptions – YSL waterproof is best and the Paint Pots do v. good. Bare Study is a staple. Perfet base as you said. That said, Shore looks v. nice.

    • the Muse

      hey you! 😀 awww really? even with prepping hun? that stinks le sigh! Shore=LOVE!

    Dear Muse,

    I am not sure I am very happy with you, when I saw the Beach collection, I was very interested in Shore BUT decided I will pass, since
    1) I had more than average experience with BB Longwear cream shadow ( specially Steel, Malted and Navajo!)
    2)rather prefer BB powder eye shadow,
    3)and already have flesh which is apparently the closest to Shore

    But after reading your review, I could not pass…and decided to order it immediately…..

    so will let you know if I love you or hate you after I received it
    thank you anyway for a beautiful blog that I just discovered. I am a huge fan of Bobbi Brown, and found your reviews extremely interesting

    • the Muse

      LOL Honor omg so sorry *hugs* forgive me? 😀 I can’t WAIT to hear what you think! 😀

      thanks for the lovely comment so glad you’re enjoying my blather!
