Where I got it: I got this from the Bobbi Brown counter in Farmers Botany for $60 (It is actually quite expensive for a single cream eyeshadow). I was there for a makeup lesson and she used this on my lids and recommended me to use this as an eye primer/base so that the eyeshadow I use on top would be budge-proof and water-proof and super long-lasting. We will see about that..
What I got: This is the Bobbi Brown Long-wear Cream Shadow in 35 Shore. A cream eyeshadow that stays on, stays true and doesn’t crease. Goes on comfortably with a soft, velvety finish—for up to 12 hours of water, sweat, humidity and transfer-resistant wear. Comes in a range of neutral shades.
How I find it: This cream shadow comes in a small little glass pot (3.5g) with a plastic black lid (much like a gel eyeliner). This is the perfect flesh-toned eyeshadow for the eyes. I have used it on its own and as a base, it dries down matte and dries quite fast too. I use either my index finger or a flat synthetic brush to apply the product and then blend it out.
Overall: I love the shade and how I can use it as a base shade or an overall shade. It applies easily and blends out seamlessly. It mattifies the eye area immediately and eyeshadow goes on smoothly as well. Personally, I think this is way too expensive as an eye primer/single eyeshadow. I can certainly find an eye primer that is much more affordable and works just as well. I think with this price tag, I would like to invest in something a little special, or a little bolder like Bobbi Brown’s recent Luxe Eyeshadows. I guess Bobbi Brown in New Zealand is just a little over-priced.
