Bobbi brown is known for making looking good a simpler process. And her new product reaffirms that philosophy! Their new Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick in eight shades of neutrals and smokey metallics “is designed for the modern woman on the move. Just swipe it on and go - it’s that easy,” says Ms Brown. And to second her, it really is. I swiped the shade 'Bark' over my upper eyelids and in one stroke I was gifted with a brilliant colour payoff in a texture that makes me want to bless Ms Brown.
Described as a ‘rich brown’, I would name it the nicest 'chocolatey brown' shade that will complement just about any eye shape and skin. A rich, red-toned dark brown with a creamy, mostly matte finish, I was pleased to mark the graceful pop of colour that this product gave. It brightened up my Monday blues if I may.
The medium-sized rounded tip and swivel-up tube packaging make this similar to jumbo crayons – only without the mess of sharpening. Making it easy to carry around and even apply on the move, the packaging is a fuss free black one - loyal to the other products of the brand - while the bottom gives you a sneak peak into the stick colour which makes it easy to pick out.
This product ups the glam quotient in a matter of seconds due to its fuss free application. A unique blend of oils, waxes and film formers, it is said that this water-resistant formula has a superior eight hour wear (lasted a good seven hours on me without a sign of giving up). Colour rich emollients provide intense pigment in one easy swipe without flaking or creasing. Mind you, it will not come off without a strong eye make up remover, so don't even waste your time with anything else. It wears comfortable without the slightest bit of irritation or discomfort, can also be worn as a thick brown liner, and you are left looking like a million bucks!
The texture is slightly creamy, enough to help it glide on without pulling or tugging on the lid, but not so much that it creases. Absolutely velvety and soft on the eyelids, Ms Brown has hit the nail on the head with this sure shot winner for Indian beauties.
Featuring other shades like Vanilla, Golden Pink, Sand Dune, Iced Blue, Forest, Shadow, Violet and Plum, we highly recommend this buy.
