This has been my hg for many years. I use it over liquid liners (physician's formula eye booster, wet and wild h20, mac liquidlast) to give them a softer look & improve lasting power. I apply with Posh brand angled brow brush & use the shadow either wet or dry. Very pigmented & color is almost black without the harshness & blue undertones I find with black shadows/liners.

This is my HG eyeliner. I alternate between this and Rich Navy, but I reach for Espresso more often. I like it as an eyeshadow as well, but mostly use it for lining. I usually use this dry, but occasionally I'll apply it wet for a bolder look. Combined with Ivory as the highlight and either Cement or Heather on the lid, it's perfect. Lasts all day with little to no fading. One caveat, however, is that it does have fall-out, so the brush needs to be tapped prior to application.

The Espresso eyeshadow was my first ever Bobbi Brown purchase back in my student days when £12.50 seemed to be a fortune to be spending on one eyeshadow. But it started a brand loyalty that's still going strong a decade later.I had no idea what a finely-milled eyeshadow meant back then, but noticed that it applied very easily into an even coverage over my eyelid and didn't crease, even without using a primer. That set a high benchmark for all my eye shadow purchases since. I used to wear it on its own, but moved on to using it as a base colour before applying darker shades nearer the lash line over time.The colour is true to its name: it's a dark brown (which suits my tanned medium, yellow-based skin tone) with a black undertone, and lends itself especially well to the classic smokey eye. I would love to pair it against my new shade of Balsam from the Metallic Eye Shadow range. I can't remember how many pans of Espresso I went through before this shade was discontinued. I think there may be a Matte Eye Shadow in Bobbi Brown's current range with the same name, but the colour is lighter and more grey than the original.Am keeping my fingers crossed that this will make a reappearance at some point so that I can stock up.

This is the best dark, matte brown eyeshadow I ever tried! Which it should be otherwise it wouldn't be worth the money. My mum went through a huge Bobbi Brown madness a while back and then "forced" me to try out this eyeshadow. I can promise you that I was very willing. The price of this will stop me from repurchasing it. The packaging is typical for the brand.And I definetly like it!

Espresso is one of the best dark brown eye shadows ever. It works well as an eyebrow color as well as for eye lining. Staying power is decent and color is nice and dark but not harsh like black is. The pan will last for ages. Only thing I am not too crazy about is the price.

One of my HG gel liners. Anything by Bobbi is usually really good, but this is great! I love the consistency and the fluidness of the product. It last a good 8 hours with a primer and it looks great. Def buy again.

Espresso is in my Modern Classic Lip & Eye Palette from BB. Very versatile. BB does neutrals so well. Her matte shadows are top notch. I don't wear this one too often b/c I've been reaching for NavyCharcoal as a liner regularly. But it's a staple to add to your BB collection for sure.

this is my fav eyeshadow of all time!the colour is almost dark enough to look like a black but the chocolaty tone makes it look a lot more elegante. the pigmentation is fantastic but it does crease at the end of the evening if i don't use a primer because i tend to get oily lids.the packaging is really elegante but not really convenient because i need two hands to unscew the little can which is a little bit annoying if i'm in a hurry.this will probably last me a long time because i normally only wear heavy eye make up for big events. if i would run out of this colour though i would repurchase it for sure!

I absolutely adore this eyeshadow. I have NC35 skin & use it with my Body Shop slant brush as an eyebrow filler, an eyeliner and as a standard shadow to contour the eye. The soft yet dark hue of this eyeshadow is fantastic for the nude look but can also be built up to achieve Sophia Loren drama. This has been an essential for me for three years and it is one of Bobbi Brown's finest accomplishments. A complete necessity.
