If “long wear” leaves you thinking about tough makeup with a dry finish, you’re in for a real treat with Bobbi Brown’s newest Long-Wear Eye Collection. The collection, which features 6 eye liners, 5 new cream shadows, and an amazing new mascara delivers long lasting color with a silky texture that’s extremely comfortable to wear.
The newest Long-Wear products are available in a variety of jewel tone colors with shades of shimmery purple, bronze and pewter being my personal favorites. The collection debuts Bobbi’s new Long-Wear Eye pencils which are very densely pigmented yet incredibly smooth and deliver a gel-like finish that doesn’t budge for hours, yet also doesn’t crease, fade or flake. Because of the gel like texture of the pencil, the eyeliner isn’t ideal for smudging into a smokey eye but that’s where Bobbi’s incredible Long-Wear Cream Shadows come into play.
I am obsessed with the cream shadows which go on unbelievably light and smooth. The key to using these shadows is to invest in a good cream shadow brush and then simply pat the color onto the eyelid. The pigment lasts all day without forming that annoying oily crease that can happen with many powder and other creamy formulations. The cream shadow comes in a few new shades with Black Violet, a purple with a fine silver shimmer, being my favorite.
Bobbi Brown’s new long wear products all last from 12 to 16 hours. But as pretty as the shades are, after a long day, you’ll probably want to take off your makeup as quickly as possible in the evening- and Bobbi has even taken that into consideration. When you’re ready to remove, the products (including the mascara) comes off with warm water- no fuss, no muss.
