In Appreciation of: Bobbi Brown’s Cream Shadow Stick in Golden Bronze
The most forgiving, portable, and chic longwear eyeshadow in your makeup bag makes a glamorous appearance in the Liberty Beauty Hall of Fame
Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Golden Bronze, £27 might just be the perfect eyeshadow. It’s a chic smoky eye in two quick, skill-free steps (just draw it on and smudge to blend) for an instant glossy-looking but budge-proof metallic patina for the eyes. The shade is a rich, moody bronze with a suggestion of warm, earthy smoke, making it perfect as an all-in-one eye look, but also as a priming base for a more complex, multiple-product smoked-out creation.
The Rise to Fame
Bobbi Brown originally created her cream shadow sticks as a way of bringing professional makeup artists techniques to everyone. Makeup artists commonly use a cream eye product as a base for powder shadows, but they can also be blended beautifully with fingers in moments, and don’t need any other products on top to constitute an entire look. The sticks are perfect to use to shade, define, highlight eyes, or add smoke and depth without creasing, flaking or fading.
This does everything you need a great eyeshadow to do. It applies coolly and without dragging your delicate eyelid. It blends easily and comfortably with either fingers or a brush, so it applies like a cream but sets like a powder. It’s also water resistant to ensure that no matter what happens during the day, your eyeshadow is staying where you put it.
The Star Quality
Golden Bronze is a hero shade for a reason. A light wash will give eyes warmth and definition for the perfect day look – just swipe it onto the lid and lower lashline, then smudge with a clean finger. Critically, though, it’s the buildability which makes this shadow stick so versatile. Just keep swiping and smudging in thin layers to build Hall of Fame level drama and pigment.
