Shimmery Taupe Eye Anyone?

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

Bobbi Brown Long-wear Sparkle Stick Eyeshadow ($31) arrives just in time for Spring 2018 in eight limited edition shades that bring a pop of sparkle to lids. As a fond fan of of Bobbi Brown’s original Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick (buy the shade Sand Dune, thank me later! It’s such a great natural shade for a nude eye look) I feel quite confident saying I’m likely going to love the Long-Wear Sparkle Stick Eyeshadows.

I mean really, who doesn’t love a good sparkly eye? I have this hidden hope that I’ll find the perfect taupe in this collection something along the lines of Stila Smoldering Satin Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow! Looks like the shade Moonstone or Galactic might fit the bill!

These aren’t actually shimmer or glitter but a pearl-infused formula that gives a glistening eye look! Mmm ok! I can dig that.

Shades include:

  • Tanzanite
  • Rose Quartz
  • Aurora Pink
  • Galactic
  • Gilded
  • Molten Bronze
  • Moonstone
  • Prosecco

Bobbi Brown Long-wear Sparkle Stick Eyeshadow are available now at nordstrom.com.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

      soon as I can get my hands on some 🙂 they literally just launched online but haven’t seen in stores yet!

    Shimmery taupe eyeshadow anyone? Yes please!
    Love it! What do you recommend for a good shimmery taupe that is perhaps a little more budget friendly than this or the Stila one you mention. I, too, am on a quest to find that perfect, every day taupe.

    Sometimes I loooove taupe. And other times, it pulls too weird on me. I don’t know!

      omg me too!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have this odd love hate relationship with it. Sometimes it looks incredible and it’s such a wearable smoky look. Other times it makes me look like I was punched or I didn’t get enough sleep!

    Hey Muse, just to mention, they have come out on the Bobbi Brown site. And right now they are dong the their next purchase discount coupons ($15 if you buy $75, $25 if you buy $100, and $40 if you buy $150). I just grabbed 5 of the shades myself and it is offering the Q (at least it says so on the order). 🙂

      By the way just question (sorry off topic), but did you happen to see the $35 Bobbi Brown Cools Eye Shadow Palette, Created for Macy’s? Do you know anyone who may have reviewed it? Was wondering if it was just “Meh” because it supposed to be a $121 palette selling for $35. Sometimes you get what you pay for, LOL.

    I just love UD’s eye pencil in Mushroom – one of the best taupe shades around.
    BB’s products are expensive and their quality has been all over the place in the past few years, so reviews are essential.

    I work at a Bobbi counter, and these are really nice! They feel a little slicker than the original shadow sticks but they dry down and don’t move just like the originals. Gilded is a taupe, but Moonstone is actually a dark, blue-based silver.

    • Isabella Muse

      thanks Suzie! That helps me narrow down for an online purchase 😀

    Love the Bobbi Brown sticks! Sand dune, vanilla, and bark, are my favorites!

    Bought Gilded yesterday and it’s gorgeous. Feels slightly wet when going on which I was surprised about, but then it drys and the colour stays. Very easy to remove as well. Will be buying more.
