Long-Wear Cream Shadow ($24) with the Miami Collection for Spring 2012. They are Copper, Bronze Sugar, Nude Beach, and Candlelight. I snapped up the two lightest shades, Candlelight and Nude Beach, at Nordstrom. I've been a Long-Wear Cream Shadow fan since it was introduced, and I couldn't wait to see them.
Bobbi’s innovative cream shadows deliver saturated color with a soft, velvety finish. This blendable and buildable formula applies easily with fingers or a brush and maintains its true color without creasing for up to 12 hours. Just when you thought your makeup couldn’t stand up to the summer heat, now it can. The new shades from the Miami Collection will provide a pretty, naturally gleaming, fresh from the beach look.
Cream Shadow Brush and took my photos in full sun. You can see the beautiful shimmering gleam these shades offer. They are absolutely perfect for a swipe-and-go application. I often use Bobbi's cream shadows alone on the lid below the crease when I'm in a hurry. These two shades are perfect for that. They would also be perfect base shades for use with an accent color.
I'm tempted to go back and purchase the other two shades. I'm such a cream eye shadow addict, I'll probably surrender unless the collection sells out quickly. These shades are a gorgeous complement to the coral and peach lip colors that are so trendy.
The Miami Collection is available at all Bobbi Brown counters. These shades are also available at Bobbi Brown's Web site. Even though the collection hasn't been posted under "What's New," you'll find the new shades available at this page.
Update 4/30: This morning, I got an e-mail from Bobbi Brown with the announcement that the Miami Collection is now available at their Web site.
