Company’s Description

Effortless and high impact-that’s the essence of NEW Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick. This do-it-all formula glides on tug-free and can be used to shade, define, smoke up and highlight eyes. In subtle to eye-popping shades that last for up to 8 hours without creasing, flaking or fading, it’s a stroke of genius. Just swipe on and go.

Bobbi Brown’s Nude Beach collection for Summer 2013 comes with two (2) new Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick shades. This review is for Sunlight Gold–a beige gold color.



Packaging: 9.25/10

The Long Wear Cream Shadow Sticks come in cylindrical, plastic tubes with pull-off caps. The tubes twist to reveal more product so that you do not have to sharpen it.

Quality: 9.8/10

Sunlight Gold is a frosty cream color with a high-frost finish. This is a stunning lid shade that will instantly brighten the eyes without the use of glitter particles. The shade is pigmented.

The formula for this eye shadow is very creamy without being too soft. The shadow glides over the skin. This shadow dries and sets within a matter of several seconds. After that, it’s smudge-, water-, and fade-resistant.

Even without primer applied underneath, this eye shadow goes at least six (6) hours without creasing. Over primer, there’s no creasing even after nine (9) hours of wear and there is also no fading.

Ease of Use: 9.8/10

This shadow’s creamy formula glides onto the skin without tugging on your lid or skipping. All you have to do with this shade is swipe it over the lid once, and you’re done.

Price: 7/10

For $28.00 you get 0.05 ounces of product. Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Shadows contain almost three times as much product (0.14 ounces) and cost less ($20.00). MAC’s Shadesticks contain about the same amount as Bobbi Brown’s Shadow Sticks but cost less than $20.00 each.
