Lipstick -Clinique - Long Last lipstick in Night Flower
sweetcg49 1/19/2010 12:01:00 AM
I wish Night Flower was really the color that the tube looks like. It actually is very very light. I guess it's supposed to be sort of lavender, but it's really kind of a grayish shade. Very disappointing. Off to search some more.
Eye Shadow -Bobbi Brown - Metallic Long Wear Cream in Brown Metal
sweetcg49 12/18/2009 6:28:00 PM
Brown Metal is one of Bobbi's new metallic long wear creams. I like almost all of Bobbi Brown's shadows and especially the long wear creams. I found this one to be quite beautiful. It is indeed metallic, just as it says, and I find that it works best as a highlight over other shadows. Like the other metallic long wear creams that I have tried, it does not have much pigment but ads a nice, sheer sparkle when used with other shadows. I would certainly buy this one again.
Eye Shadow -Bobbi Brown - Metallic Long-Wear Cream Shadow in Black Pearl
sweetcg49 11/14/2009 11:19:00 AM
I have no idea why this is called Black Pearl because it's a beautiful shade of sheer sparkly violet. I find that it is best when worn as an accent. I like to use it just on the outer edge of the lid over matte powder or cream. It adds just a touch of subtle sparkle. So far I haven't found any shade that it doesn't compliment: browns, greys, greens, violets. I own all of Bobbi's long wear creams and like them very much. I don't know where the idea that cream shadow doesn't last came from because Bobbi's lasts wonderfully, hence the name "long wear." Thank you, Bobbi, for another great product.
Eye Shadow -Bobbi Brown - Ballet Sparkle Eye Shadow
sweetcg49 9/26/2009 11:40:00 AM
Ballet is pink and sparkly and is very much like the other Bobbi Brown Sparkle shadows. I don't think Bobbi invented Sparkle shadows to be used as other shadows. I think the sparkles are meant to be used sparingly as accents only. I have not found it difficult to apply at all. Quite the contrary, in fact. I have used it over various shades of brown, grey, and plum, and each time it leaves a bit of glitter that enhances the colors and the overall effect. Unfortunately, Ballet is no longer available to purchase from Bobbi Brown, but a kind MUA member sent me some. Thanks so much. I will continue to enjoy it. :-)
Eye Shadow -Bobbi Brown - Metallic Long-Wear Cream Shadow in Antique Gold
sweetcg49 9/1/2009 12:28:00 PM
Antique Gold is one of Bobbi's new metallic long-wear creams. In the pot, it looks exactly like what you'd expect, a deep antique gold. When applied, however, there is little pigment and mostly gold sparkles. I have tried it in various applications and think it works best over any medium shade such as Ash or Suede Long-Wear Cream or Rich Brown, Cocoa, or Ivy matte. If you are expecting something highly pigmented, you may be disappointed. But if you are looking for a shade to accent, highlight, or enhance, Antique Gold is very, very nice.
Eye Shadow -Bobbi Brown - Sunlight Sparkle Eye Shadow
sweetcg49 8/28/2009 3:47:00 PM
Sunlight is a sparkly gold shadow with almost no pigmentation. I was not disappointed about the lack of pigmentation because I got what I expected. I think it's very beautiful and, when used sparingly, adds a nice sparkle over other shades.
Eye Shadow -Bobbi Brown - Silver Moon Sparkle Eye Shadow
sweetcg49 8/28/2009 3:41:00 PM
Silver Moon is a silver sparkly sheer shadow that works best when applied sparingly over other shades. It is indeed sparkly, but if that's the look you want, this is the product for you. I think it's very pretty.
Mica is a grey taupy shade, but as others have said, it is mostly glitter. But that's ok, as that is what I expected. It does best when it is applied over other shades, adding a nice sheer sparkle. I like it.
Eye Shadow -Bobbi Brown - Metallic Eye Shadow in Velvet Plum
sweetcg49 8/28/2009 3:24:00 PM
Velvet Plum is a mixture of plum and neutral. Others here have called it taupe, and I guess that's an ok evaluation, but it seems to have quite a bit of plum to me. I think it's simply beautiful. It isn't too light or too dark, and even though it is a metallic, it isn't too glittery. I can wear it all by itself and it looks great. Thanks, Bobbi.
Sage is green but with a golden brown base. It's very wearable and quite lovely. I like Bobbi's shadows so much, and this one is fabulous. I never would have thought that I would like a green shadow, but Bobbi makes it with a twist,and I am pleased.
Eye Shadow -Bobbi Brown - Metallic Eyeshadow in Rockstar
sweetcg49 8/17/2009 2:26:00 PM
Rockstar is a grey/gunmetal/silver shade. It's quite lovely. It is a bit lighter than I expected, but it blends nicely with other shades. I really like Bobbi's shadows, and this one is no exception.
Eye Shadow -Bobbi Brown - Metallic Eyeshadow in Pink Pearl #16
sweetcg49 8/12/2009 10:24:00 PM
Pink Pearl is just that -- it's pink and it's pearlized. I find it to be a nice base color but only if used sparingly. It does blend nicely with more neutral shades, so I do find it a nice addition.
Eye Shadow -Bobbi Brown - Shimmerwash Eye Shadow in Golden Leaf
sweetcg49 8/12/2009 3:53:00 PM
Golden Leaf is simply gorgeous. It's one of the most beautiful shadows I've ever seen. It has it all -- gold, khaki, olive, a hit of shimmer -- stunning. I love Bobbi Brown shadows and have them all. I was excited to see a new one and was greatly pleased with it. Bobbi rocks!!
Eye Shadow -Bobbi Brown - Metallic Eye Shadow in Pink Chandelier
sweetcg49 8/4/2009 12:57:00 PM
Pink Chandelier looks almost neutral in the pan -- sort of a beigey shade with only a slight pink cast. The color almost disappears when applied, leaving a lovely shimmer. I love it. Thanks for another great product, Bobbi.
Eye Shadow -Bobbi Brown - Metallic Eye Shadow in Navajo
sweetcg49 8/1/2009 3:53:00 PM
Navajo is just beautiful. It's shimmery but not too shimmery. I would describe it is as somewhat of an ivory shade. Bobbi also makes her long wear cream shadow in Navajo, and it is a matte shade. I don't like it nearly as much as this one. This metallic is very soft and flattering.
