Best Eye Primer | Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow in Shore
Yes, you read it right. I found a replacement for the famous, cult fave Urban Decay Primer Potion.
Bobbi Brown definitely changed my opinion with creamy shadows. Before you couldn't make me buy anything that is within the vicinity of creamy products for the eyes. Most that I've tried in the past creased on me big time and I just end up tossing them to the bin or they are now currently gathering dust and taking space in my room.
Skeptic at first, I went ahead and tried it. I was swayed by the fact that it's from Bobbi Brown (the brand I love so much!) and of course, by numerous international beauty blog's raving reviews online. Knowing how oily my lids can get, I was excited to give it a go. And guess what? It worked.
Brand putting the term "long wear" on their collection can get totally misleading given that our skin reacts differently with a lot of products. I'm just glad that when Bobbi Brown puts a label on her collection, she always delivers and cuts down on the BS of advertising and marketing. She's always encouraging and never pushing. I don't know how she does it but she's always right on the money IMHO.
The Long Wear Cream Shadow in Shore is as it says. It stays on without creasing for at least 12 hours (air conditioned environment and minimal exposure to humidity and outdoors). The texture is creamy and smooth that applying it on my lids is easy. It also doesn't dry out fast so I get to blend my pressed or powder shadows. What's great is that it adds vibrancy to the shadows. More so that it comes in different shades that allows you to pair them with your makeup look. When you want to cover the bases, this is a great makeup base to use.
Oh! I haven't tried using this alone but I guess it works just as great, too. :)
I can't believe it myself. Cream shadow that works for oily lids. No creasing at all. Well, it's true. Take my word for it. This is the real deal and this why this baby is on my Best of 2012!
Just goes to show we don't always have to look far for great products. :) Yay for no more frustration when UDPP rans out. Here's to my favorite eye primer, Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow in Shore.
