Bobbi Brown Eyes 

I love eye makeup. There’s something that is so mesmerizing about eyes. It’s the feature I stare at most in others, so it makes sense that most of my makeup routine revolves around creating different eye looks. I recently received two eye makeup samples from Bobbi Brown: the Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick and the Eye Opening Mascara. These can both be purchased from Sephora for $30 each.

First, let’s talk about the cream shadow stick. I loved the texture of this product – it’s very creamy  (as its name suggests). It’s easy to apply and does dry down. Unfortunately, without an eye shadow primer, it does tend to settle into the eye crease. Also, I was pleased with the staying power of this product. It definitely did last all day and still looked vivid and sparkly when I got home from work. I would definitely recommend this shadow, especially for people who prefer creams to powders for eye shadow. If you’ve never considered a cream shadow, I would recommend one if your eyelids seem to lack natural oils. If lids are too dry, it can make powder shadows look a bit patchy. If this frequently happens to you, maybe you should try a cream shadow which has a bit of natural moisture and might glide on well with a drier eyelid. People with oilier lids can use cream shadows too, although they might not last as long on an oily lid.

As for the mascara, it was definitely just okay. For $30, I expected a much better finish. It had a bold brush and deposited a nice amount of product, but while my eyelashes did seem to have more volume and were appropriately darkened, they remained very straight and would not hold a curl at all. My overall lash look seemed very lackluster with this particular mascara, so I will probably be giving this sample to a friend. I will not be purchasing the full size.

Have you tried anything from this brand? I’d love to know your thoughts on some of their other products!

Thanks for reading!
