Review & Swatches: Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadows

Long-Wear Cream Eye Shadows

I purchased these when I went to IMATS 2010 in Pasadena.
I had been wanting to try out Bobbi Brown's Long-Wear Cream Shadows for quite some time and when the SA told me that everything was 40% off, I decided to purchase a few!
I bought 3 metallic ones because the matte long-wear cream shadows reminded me A TON of MAC's paint pots- which I already own. The only one I purchased that wasn't a metallic is Galaxy #9, which ended up being my favorite! It is a lot more pigmented than the others. The SA told me that the metallic long-wear cream shadows were meant to add a hint of color and shimmer. That is something I would take into consideration before purchasing these.
Also, I'm sure you've heard but for those who haven't... Bobbi Brown is now available for purchase at Sephora!

Purchase the Metallic Long-Wear Cream Shadows for $22.

Metallic Long-Wear Cream Shadow
Brown Metal #4
This one I seem to be wearing the most. It isn't too glittery or sparkly.
It has a hint of frosty shimmer and makes my eyes pop.
It's super easy to wear- and I think this shade would look good on ALL skin-tones.

Metallic Long-Wear Cream Shadow
Goldstone #10
I love this shade- it is VERY golden and it has a beautiful shine to it.
It almost makes the eyelids look "wet."
The only downside is the texture- it has a tiny gritty feel to it...
When layered over another matte base, the grittiness seems to fade somewhat.
Definitely a shade every makeup artist needs to own in his/her kit!

Metallic Long-Wear Cream Shadow
Mercury #11
This is a shade I was the least satisfied with.
It is extremely sheer and a bit gritty in texture.
I think I could handle the texture as long as there was some sort of color payoff!
I don't recommend this one and I will not be repurchasing.

Long-Wear Cream Shadow
Galaxy #9
This is my favorite shade!!!
No grittiness, perfect amount of shimmer and color.
It almost has a nice duo-chrome affect.
Definitely recommending this to you ladies- it's a keeper!!

The following products were purchased by me, with my own money.
I am always 100% honest in my reviews.
