AMW Reviews: Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow in Bone

Happy Start of the week AMW Friends!  
I had a very busy weekend but I managed to squeeze in "me" time by sleeping as much as I can as soon as I'm done with the gig!  

I love to use my Urban Decay Primer Potion on most of my clients, but on days I want their eyeshadow to pop even more, I also like the use a cream eyeshadow underneath!  What cream shadows have I used on both myself and on gigs? 

The new Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow in Bone - a nice shade to jump start your Cream Shadow collection!

The shade I will review today is Bone

Bobbi Brown says --- 
Velvety-smooth formula that goes on easily - and lasts all day without creasing or smearing.  Fragrance free.  Safe for contact lens wearers.  Ophthalmologist tested.
Size: 0.12oz/3.5g

AMW says ---
  • Housed in a glass packaging prolonging the life of the cream shadow.
  • Create a clean, matte base prior to eyeshadow application.
  • No smudging nor smearing even without eye primer underneath (base on my own lids)
  • Can be used alone and it helps brighten up the eye area.
  • No eye irritations.
  • Spreads easily without the need to pull my lids. 
  • If you have very dry lids, the cream shadow may not spread well.  
  • If you have dark skin, the color Bone may show up a bit too harsh on your lids.  I strongly suggest to purchase a warmer shade.
Bone is the best base for any eyeshadow application!  It makes your eyeshadow appears more vibrant, stays longer and crease-free!

  • If you have long fingernails, use a spatula in picking up the product, warm the product by rubbing it with clean fingers and apply directly on lids or by using a brush.
  • Apply on clean lids or on top of your choice of primer (if you have super oily lids) using your fingers or a synthetic eyeshadow brush.
  • Always blend the cream shadow by using your clean fingers.
  • Bone shade can also be applied on the brow bone area and inner corners for brighter-looking eyes.
  • If you are off to do a daytime to nighttime makeup, instead of removing your daytime eyeshadow, apply Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow on top of your existing eyeshadow and it will magically blur out and remove the previous color!  Proceed with your night time eye makeup!  This works like magic and you don't need to redo your mascara or eyeliner!
  • I like storing cream based eyeshadow upside down so the top portion won't get too dried out! (this works for gel liners too!)

Will I repurchase?

Yes!  In other shades!

To whom do I recommend this to?
Girls who love to create vibrant-looking eyes!

Where to purchase and how much?
At local Bobbi Brown counters for Php1,450.00 (approx $33.70).


Shade: Bone
A matte, very light beige color

 Picking up the shade using my fingers, it may look a bit dry at first, if that's the case, feel free to warm the product between your fingers prior to applying on lids.

  1. this looks very similar to MAC Paintpots. is the texture similar as well?

    1. Well, the texture is almost similar but with this particular shade BONE, I find the MAC one a tiny bit more creamier!

  2. This sounds great! I usually apply cream eyeshadows on top of primer anyway, so definitely checking this out. :)

    1. I agree, I still would like to have the assurance of having a primer underneath :)

  3. sis, try the Laura Mercier Eye Canvass. I'm sure you'll love it too, the size is bigger though than the Bobbie Brown one.



    1. Thanks for the reco! I'll give Laura Mercier a check!

  4. It looks like creme brulee in the pot. :) I have one in Heather. It's so wearable on its own, as well as the other shades. :)
