I'm loving.. Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Eye Shadows!

 I haven't long been using Bobbi Brown products, but one of my favourite tried and tested little discoveries has to be the 'Long Wear Cream Eye Shadows' from the brand. At the moment, I only have two in my collection but there is vast colour range for these products and I will definitely be purchasing more!



The first cream eye shadow I bought was in the shade 'Velvet Plum', this is a gorgeous, shimmery bronze, which I believe was actually limited edition as it was part of a Christmas gift set and unfortunately, I can't seem to find it anywhere individually. However, I would say the shades 'Beach Bronze' and 'Burnished' would be the closest matches..


The second shade from the range that I got is 'Galaxy', a deep, shimmery silver, which I think would suit and look fantastic on anyone..


L-R: 'Velvet Plum', 'Galaxy'.

The colour intensity is amazing and the claim 'long wear' really does not disappoint. I can honestly say they last all day without smudging or creasing, they are also water resistant which is another bonus! I find they are best applied to a clean lid, using a finger gives more of a sheer effect or when applying with a cream eye shadow brush, you can create layers and build on the colour. I love the packaging from this brand, these little glass jars especially, it is so simple yet professional and you really feel you are getting the best quality from these products, no wonder they have won numerous awards!

Has anyone ever tried any of these? If so, are there any colours you can recommend from the range?

  1. I haven't tried these yet because i can't buy any of Bobbi Brown products in my country which really sucks :( but these eyeshadows look so pretty, i would love to try them, i just hope my country actually starts selling Bobbi Brown, M.A.C, Laura Mercier, Jemma Kidd's make up...and many others because we are missing out on loads of beautiful and cool make up products! xxxx

  2. I have the Velvet Plum also that I absolutely love but can't find any replacements. Any suggestions for the closest color to match it?

  3. Keep a look out now that it's Christmas and they have the sets out again. I haven't seen them in the flesh but going by swatches on the internet, Antique Gold or Brown Metal might be close matches :-) x
