Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow
Holds all day and night!
I had never bought a cream shadow before so was a bit nervous when purchasing this in Platinum, I have always stuck to powder. The lady on the counter told me this would stay put all day so I decided to give it a try. She was right! Its so quick and easy to apply, use your fingertip, not a brush. It doesn't crease or fall onto your cheeks or under eyes, it looks as good at the end of the day as it did when first applied that morning. It glitters slightly in the light and highlights really well. Will definitely buy this product again. Very happy!

More Peat than Heather
Bought this in 'Heather'. No way is it close to any shade of heather and is certainly not like the colour spectrum I chose it from - more like the soil it grows in -peat. Also, it has a powdery look to it when applied - very old-fashioned looking. Because of this it's unsuitable for blending with other eye shadows so straight into the bin I'm afraid . Maybe the term "long wear" means that the product has less oil in it - the more oily the product the less likely it is to 'hold' all day - which would be why it has such a flat look to it - a bit like Estee Lauder's double wear foundation - another waste of money.

Having used many brands of eye-shadow over the years, I now find this to be the only one I am happy with. I use it with a primer and the colour stays put all day without creasing or going oily. I like the Stone shade best as it is neutral and flattering.

I just had to do this review on the eyeshadow. I normally use different products and today i used the Bobbi Brown eyeshadow and let me tell you all it has stayed on now for ten hours and still looks like i just applied it.
Its well worth the investment and would recommend it . I will be using this product from now on.

great if you want to make your eyes look 10 years older
this shadow goes on creamy, and gives you the impression that it will cosset your eyes in dreamy, moist colour - wrong. in fact what it does is dry to a scaly/crepey finish. not a great look, especially when your eyes arent actually crepey to begin with. do yourselves a favour ladies, grab a magnifying mirror (a girls cruel but necessary bf) and look at the skin on your eyes when you have finished your makeup and it has set/dried - you will then sling this horrible stuff in the bin

Bought this online as a replacement for a colour no longer available and it is much better so am very pleased. Delivery, as usual, from John Lewis was impeccable.
