Long-Wear Cream Shadow Sticks ($28) were introduced early this year, I fell in love. Now, there are two new shades - launched with the Nude Beach Collection for Summer 2013. I tested both Sunlight Gold and Golden Bronze at Neiman Marcus and forced myself to select only one. Golden Bronze won that face off, although I'll admit I really wanted both. I think gold shadows look good on me.
Bobbi Brown said, “Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick is designed for the modern woman on the
move. Just swipe it on and go - it’s that easy." I
think she was right. About the new collection, she said, "It's relaxed, easy, and gorgeous - what summer beauty is all about."
A unique blend of oils, waxes, and film formers gives this
water-resistant formula excellent eight hour wear. Color-rich emollients
provide intense pigment in one easy swipe without flaking or creasing.
Supremely smooth, lightweight feel. Antioxidant vitamins C and E protect
the delicate eye area, while skin conditioners help create a smooth,
comfortable, and lightweight feel that is not oily or tacky.
This is one of the snazziest browns I have. I love the metallic sheen of the finish, and the color is incredibly flattering. It would look great with Sunlight Gold. Did you catch that hint of regret?
The Nude Beach Collection is available now at Bobbi Brown counters and the Bobbi Brown Web site. There were other items I want, but I'm holding off for a wallet refill. There are two colors of the limited-edition Tube Tints that are simply gorgeous, and the Shimmer Nail Polish in Pink Pearl is enchanting.
