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.
Bobbi Brown describes Violet Plum as a light lavender, which is inaccurate. This is a medium-to-deep purple with subtle, lighter purple shimmer. The shimmer is subtle enough that you can still use this in the crease as a matte crease color. This shade has great pigmentation and an opaque finish.
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. You can definitely use this in the crease as long as you blend the color out immediately. With primer applied, creasing didn’t throughout an entire day of wear.
Ease of Use: 9.75/10
This shadow’s creamy formula glides onto the skin without tugging on your lid or skipping. Make sure to blend out the color immediately if you’re using it in the crease, otherwise it will dry and set before you diffuse the color.
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.
