Left to Right: Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Bark and Violet Plum
Top to Bottom: Violet Plum and Bark
These are the new Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Sticks in the shades Bark [matte dark brown] and Violet Plum [slightly shimmery plum, not quite metallic but with a sheen]... I am wearing both in the smokey eye make-up look I have created... Applying the Violet Plum all over the eyelid and then blending it out with a brush, for extra depth I applied the Bark on top just into the outer corner and crease... I also took both of the shades under the lower lash-line to create that sultry smokey eye... The Cream Shadow Sticks are buildable and blend nicely! They are very long lasting, but if you have oily eyelids like I do you will definitely need a primer, as it started braking down in the crease on my [very oily] eyelids but stayed untouched everywhere else...
Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick comes in eight shades ranging from subtle to eye-popping colours, and I just read that Katie Holmes is wearing Violet Plum and Bark in the ad, ha(!) I had no idea! They are great for an effortless smokey eye, really easy to use even on the go... Especially if you are new to a smokey eye look but would like to try it you can't go wrong with them... They don't dry instantly so you'd have time to correct a mistake if you make one, but once they set they become water-proof, which is always great for the summer... In terms of ingredients it has antioxidant Vitamins C and E to protect the delicate eye area...
