My Bobbi Brown Metallic Long-Wear Cream Shadow finally came!
Available in 8 glittering, high-shimmer colors, the Metallic Long-Wear Cream Shadow comes in cute little square jar with a black lid. The color I got was Chrome Patina, a medium silver decked with tiny white gold glitter.
Besides the GORGEOUS color, the texture was definitely the other thing I liked. The shadow glided on very easily, felt super lightweight and dried immediately. It also wore really well – 12 hours and no creasing.
Pigmentation-wise, it was pretty sheer. When worn alone, it will only give a hint of color with a bit of glossy effect. The good news, however, is you can easily layer the cream shadow for more color. The tiny glitter also created the perfect sparkling effect that will give you that extra omph most everyday eyeshadow lacks.
Bobbi Brown Metallic Long-Wear Cream Shadow is available at bobbibrown.com Nordstrom.

I like that colour! It is a nice pure silver and I can definitely see it being used as a base for MAC’s Platinum pigment for a flashier, brighter and more silver look for a holiday party or clubbing.
this looks awesome! Did you use any eyeshadow primer like UDPP or by itself? All cream eyeshadows crease like crazy on me without primer so I am hesitating but I love this color 🙂
I did not use a primer underneath. I just wore the cream shadow with Milani’s Easyliner Retractable Pencil for Eyes in Black underneath. The cream shadow dries pretty matte and stays on really well for me but if you worry about it creasing, I am sure you can use a primer underneath.
that’s fast! thank you for the review! i know it sounds so general but yeah, thank you~
wa i like thissssss
Get it la Lorrie! It’s similar to the Jill Stuart Eye Jelly but even better!
You take the most gorgeous photos! May I know what kind of camera do you use? 🙂 TIA.
Thanks Teeyah! I just use Sony’s Cybershot DSC-T70 but I always take my pictures in macro mode with flash.
ooo~ how pretty! I don’t own any cream eyeshadows but maybe I’ll pick some up
Thank you for the information Phyllis! BTW have you tried beaute de kose’s cream eyeshadows? I wonder which is better.
starry purple looks like NARS night clubbing shadow on the swatches
Really? We use the same camera but I never get these kind of photos. Yours are so nice! 🙂 Thanks for replying, sweets!
OOO I’m in love with starry purple and starry night! They really do look like the night sky.
I (l) IT!!!:) 😛
Wow they look gorgeous!
I’ve never purchased any makeup from Bobbi Brown but I’m definitely going to pick up Black Pearl.
My favourite colours so far are starry purple and chrome patina. I got to get down to Holt Renfrew to check out the Bobby Brown counter.
My favorites are starry night & antique gold. These are so gorgeos!
Would this work layered over some regular eyeshadow applied first (so there is already some pigment underneath)?
what shade(s) are a good brownish-bronze color?
