Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow - Bone

We love many things about working in TV ( particularly swooning at George Lamb on a daily basis), but it seems our make up isn't such a big fan. No matter how hard we try the dreaded combination of stuffy studios and intense lighting often means we're constantly cleaning our cheeks of runny creams, dropped powders and smudged shadows.

That is until now.

Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadows are without a doubt our favourite eye bases of all time. Beautifully easy to apply, these pots not only posses the most gorgeous pigmentation, but literally stay put for hours. We fell in love after a single swipe of colour survived an entire 16 hour shoot day way back in December. When we eventually returned home with our features frozen from the snow, all we could see with a glistening golden veil confidently making our blue eyes pop. No creases. No smudges. No patches. We were blown away.

Bone Cream Shadow swatched

This summer we've been repeatedly rocking shade number 1; Bone - a creamy beige, matte finish shadow ideal for wear both day and night. Against pale skin it creates a wonderfully fresh up-lifted appearance, giving the entire eye area a deliciously youthful 'wide-awake' effect. When applied to darker skin it makes the most versatile base for applying sheer, subtle washes of shimmer. Our friend - who is a MAC NW43 - simply can't get enough of it.

Bone Cream Shadow applied to bare lids

Although we don't suffer from oily lids ourselves, when we heard a colleague at work complain about her greasy skin causing havoc with shadows, we couldn't wait to recommend this formula. That very afternoon she nipped out, grabbed a glass pot and hasn't looked back since. If you're someone who constantly finds your eye make up slipping and sliding, these bases just might be the answer to your woes.

And if that's not enough - just to really show off - the above photo was taken at the end of a 10 hour shift at work. Yes. That's how hardcore this product is. We love it.

Bobbi Brown cream shadows are available internationally and at at £16 for 3.5g.

I'm glad you enjoy these! I bought a few from my local Nordstrom counter and they weren't good at all -- extremely hard to spread. Do you think they were old? Your swatch makes it look so creamy!

Oh no! That's weird. We've got a few of these and they all spread like a dream. It sounds like you're spot on; the formula had probably dried out for some reason. Which is a real shame because these are fantastic.

I have Bone powder shadow and love it! This might need to be added to my collection.
