I love using this as a transition colour in the crease and sometimes as my base lid colour, it looks scary in the pot but you wear medium foundations from Bobbi Brown this will look lovely. It goes on easily and there's very little fallout. It blends out easily and a little goes a long way
Great for transition zone
I knew i have to grab this beautiful matte colour for blending out harsh lines.Its perfect with no fall-out,some days i just apply this onto my crease to make it more deeper.No regret of buying this given the pricey tag,invest some good eyeshadows does make it worthwhile.
I love Bobbi Brown eye shadows! They last so long. I love putting Urban Decay primer potion on my lid then putting my Bobbi Brown shadows over. They last so long and work so well with my skin. Even without a primer, they stay for a long time. Her shadows are true to color and very gorgeous. I love smudging them together - they blend so well. I love using Ivory as a base for my shadow.
Hunt for mom perfect dark matte brown.
My mother is a very picky women. Don't tell her I said that (hehe). But any woo she had this really old wet n' wild brown pellet with mattes and shimmers which was very pretty. But they stop making this pallet a while back so my mom had two or three and when she hit pan on her last one, the hunt was on. Not foe her of course for me because she knew I was in the cosmetics department daily. The first one I bought her was a MAC brown and navy blue. She loved the blue but wasn't wild about the brown. So I started my hunt again. One night while killing time at work I started swatching Bobbi shadows. I saw espresso and knew my mother would be happy. I picked it up that night, and the next day took it to my moms house. She loved it and uses it daily because "earth tones" look the best on her. According to her lol.
i would say these are amazing shadows, such pigmentation in them and such smooth application one thing i dont think well...few things 1) i dont like the dusty-ness guess you could say fall out too when you tap the brush and then apply there is still a bit of fall out which is ok if its a light colour you can brush it away with the fan brush 2) the colours seem deeper than the colour in the palette (Blonde for example seems lighter on the palette but when you swatch it, it looks darker
but all in all these are amazing products and i love them:)
Doesn't crease one bit
This is one of the few matte shadows that doesn't crease, which is totally amazing for me. I have the Black Chocolate shade (from the latest Fall 2010 colors, basically a real dark version of Caviar) and it works like a dream. Completely buildable from light daytime to a deep smoky lid, I wore this for many hours and it didn't budge or fade off.
You can also use this as a brow fill-in color so you don't need to buy another brow pencil, and it works well as a powder eye liner. Gotta love multi-purpose shadows like this one. It's also 3.8 grams per compact so it's a MUCH better deal than shu uemura's eye shadows (2.1 grams) for the same exact price.
