I really like the color of this but sadly it did crease on me after a few hours (like most e/s's do). But im not giving up on it, i shall try it over my TF primer, as a base, etc. and report back with an update on my experiments :)
İ love this creamy e/s (read my other reviews) but except Bone. İ think because of the color it's so waxy, you couldn't use it, spread it. İt's realy white. This one is useless the others İ have are wonderful. continued >>
While I like BB's other cream shadows this one just didnt "do it" for me. I perfer her Bone in powder form better. There are other options out there that are better than this. L'oreal has a line called HiP and they have cream shadows and they have a color just like BB's Bone but it is better and way cheaper as well.
It is a major disappointment. I wanted to use it as a base but it creases very quickly. The colour is not very flattering either. You have to apply it very quickly because it dries fast, and so it is not easily blended. It is really a waste of money and it is not cheap either.
Bone long cream eyeshadow is very matte and when i first tried it, it washed out my entire eyelid making it super white. i was thinking about returning it but i decided to give it another try. so i asked my mua at my local mall how to put this on b/c it washed out my eyes completely and she said that the trick is that to use a very very very light hand and then smooth it out w/ your fingers. so then i decided to give it another try and it worked so much better. i used it on my brow bone along w/ the bobbi brown's metallic cream eyeshadow on my lid and it looked just right. the bone cream eyeshadow actually stayed on longer than the metallic creme eyeshadow. the staying power is awesome and also it makes an excellent base. however once i run out of it i'm probably not going to repurchase this long wear creme shadow but i will try another one in a different color.
I use this as a primer, and it works very well. I go most of the day without creasing, which is a serious improvement for me because I normally crease within a couple of hours. I first apply Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream, let it sink in, and then I apply this product. I wait a minute for it to set, and then I go ahead with my eye shadow. Great product; much better than the Benefit primer I was using. And a little goes a long way! This will probably last a year before a need a new one.
I received this in a swap and didn't even know how much I needed it! I wouldn't use this alone, because it is too matte and a little chalky feeling after it dries. However, those properties make it the best base EVER!! My eyeshadows pop on top of it and stay put. I'm fairly new to eye primers, but so far I've tried Laura Geller's eye spackle and UD primer potion and this cream beats both with a stick!
I love BB's Cream shadows, but this particular shade for some reason has a different consistency. It doesn't blend as well as her other cream shadows I own. It's always really chalky and ashy after application which is very frustrating. I've tried working with it many different ways by using my fingers, a cream brush and always making sure my lids are prepped before use. It's such a shame because Bone is a perfect shade to use as a base from lid to browbone so that's why I will just keep working with it. Hopefully Bobbi Brown will come out with another similar color soon that has the same creamy texture as her other cream shadows.
EDIT 9/3/09--Just like the reviewer mentioned above me, I now use this as an eyeshadow base and it works wonders. It works way better than a few high end eye base products I've purchased. Even on a very hot 100 degrees day my eyeshadow still stays put and doesn't crease. I found a love for it after all!
Bone is a flat matte cream shadow that works nicely as a base for other shades. Unfortunately, I have not has quite as good results with this one as I have with Bobbi's other long wear creams. It does not spread well across the skin, nor does it blend well no matter whether I use a base or not. But it's a great color, and I plan to work with it more. I think it could have other uses as well as eye shadow. Edited to add: I have had better luck with Bone recently and find that it blends with almost every color. I like it more and more.
I am so glad I gave this cream shadow a chance. I am always afraid of using anything other than my Too Faced Shadow Insurance with a MAC Paint or Paint Pot for my shadow base, since creasing drives me more nuts than it probably should. However, I received this as a gift and finally gave it a go. I am quite fair, so the color works very well on me (i.e. it doesn't wash me out). I first apply my Too Faced Shadow Insurance and then I use a natural bristle Vincent Longo brush to apply this on top. As other reviewers said, it is a little dry in feeling, but it does not flake and applies nicely. Putting powder shadow over this is a breeze, as the powder blends very well with it. Plus, the white-ish color means whatever powder you put over it will appear as it does in the package. I promise you - your shadow will not budge. I haven't tried it without the Too Faced stuff, but I imagine it would probably work well on its own - I'm just that paranoid =P. My one gripe is the packaging. Due to the nature of the product, it will dry out if exposed to air, so you have to make sure you screw the top on tightly. The MAC Paint Pots have the edge in terms of packaging. Other than that one flaw, this is highly recommended.
