Best Beauty Products : Eye Shadows : Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Eye Shadow in Beach Bronze 16
After a great deal of research, we purchased this product from Sephora and were very impressed with its performance and versatility. Currently available in 19 shades, “Beach Bronze” and “Shore” were the two shades most popular at our local store; there was one jar of Beach Bronze remaining so we snapped it up and tried it.
“Bobbi’s best-selling and award-winning formula uses new polymer technology to provide superior adhesion to eyelids. It dries down to a matte veil of color that won’t budge, smudge, or crease and can be used as an all-over color or highlighter and layered for extra intensity.”
The product comes in a glass jar with a small opening and tight screw cap which reduces drying out, although the small opening may pose a slight challenge during product removal. To avoid bacterial contamination of the cream, we used an applicator to remove the product from the jar.
Beached Bronze 16 Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Eye Shadow in Beached Bronze:
The shade Beach Bronze 16 is flattering and may be worn alone or layered with other shadows and works well with multiple skin tones. It has a subtle amount of glitter that brightens the eyes without creasing, making it a great product for women of all ages. The matte shades (such as Shore and Cement) offer great base colors– simply mix the cream shadow base on the back of your hand and add whatever shade you prefer and apply the mixture directly onto lids. Cream shadows have the advantage of ease of application and improved control of the degree of color intensity with resistance to smudging and creases while brightening the eye area, a quality popular with all age groups. Another benefit is the shadow’s staying power across all types of climates and conditions, making this a great year round product. For Latinas seeking a natural radiant look with a touch of glamour plus impressive crease-free staying power in warm and humid climates, Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Eye Shadow is a must-have product.
Summary: Bobbi Brown’s Award Winning Long Wear Cream Shadow is impressive. Its velvety smooth formula applies with ease, removes easily, and lasts for hours without creasing or smudging. Beach bronze is a gorgeous warm color flattering to a wide range of eye colors and skin tones with just the right amount of gold shimmer, perfect for day or night.
Update: August 1, 2015: We personally tested Bobbi Brown’s Long Wear Cream Shadow during the hot summer month of July and it performed flawlessly. No creasing, fading of color or smudging. It worked well on multiple skin tones, with or without a tan, under a variety of conditions.
Final verdict = Five stars out of Five for Bobbi Brown’s Long Wear Cream Shadow.
