I adore all things Bobbi Brown. I also love a but of sparkle so I was grinning like a cheshire cat where I saw the new Sparkle Eye Shadows. Mine is in Ballet Pink.
The shadow is loaded with dimensional shimmering pearls and glitter. Glitter? I can see you running away screaming. However, it works. If glitter conjures up images of you as a fourteen year old sparkling like a disco ball, shudders, then you are just like me but this product may change your mind. It’s elegant, light the eyes and face and I believe would look great on anyone. Yes, absolutely anyone, of any age!
The new light-weight formula is designed to last 8 hours without creasing. I’m always sceptical when I hear this but at Bobbi Brown prices I had high expectations. They do sell their own eye primer which I haven’t tried so I applied a layer of Urban Decay Primer Potion Anti-Age underneath before patting the shadow on with my finger. It glides on! More importantly it’s not greasy or oily in any way.
The shadow did in fact last all day using a primer as a base. I even went for a run in the evening and it still hadn’t budged. Now that is impressive. I’m not usually into cream shadows. I spend the whole day checking if they’re creasing or fading. This beauty has changed my mind. I never thought I would use the words ‘elegant’ and ‘glitter’ in the same sentence!
You know hoe much I like a swatch image. However, in this case I couldn’t do it justice. I walked around the house, stood in different light, tried the flash, went outside, I just couldn’t capture the magic!
It is so much more beautiful that this images shows!
It comes in 11 shades, which I am now coveting :). Silver Moon, Ballet Pink (above), Mica, Sunlight, Cement, Taupe, Pebble, Silver Lilac, Smokey Quartz, Allspice and Baby Peach. They are definitely worth checking out.
Are you a fan of cream shadows? Any recommendations?
