For most of us, Monday means having to go back to work (drat!), but it doesn’t also have to mean forsaking cute makeup. Take a gander at the Long-Wear Cream Shadows from Quick Face, Bobbi Brown’s (le queen of the neutral makeup) latest collection. What do ya think?
Matte and shimmerless, these bad boys apply easily by finger or brush (I used the MAC 252). I felt they did an admirable job adding subtle definition to my eyes. Wear each color by itself or beneath layers of other powdered shadows.
There are five colors in the collection:
- Cement – grey beige
- Malted – mocha beige
- Navajo – creamy pinkish white
- Slate – medium grey
- Stone – beige brown
From left to right: Cement, Malted, Navajo, Slate and Stone
Their texture reminds me of the texture of MAC’s Paint Pots, with the softness of each shade varying within the different colors. Navajo and Cement feel drier and chalkier than Slate, Stone and Navajo do.
Matte neutral eyeshadows won’t always set the world on fire — I usually reach for more bam! and shimmer than these shades deliver — but when circumstances call for a sophisticated look (read: subtle), I’ll reach for these.
Purchase Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow at your favorite Bobbi Brown Counter or online.
Hey, guys. I’m having a rough Monday so far. I could barely get it together in time to finish this post and had to call upon the powers-that-be just to get out of bed.
Do you have any tricks that you use to get yourself into a better mood when Mondays really feel like … Mondays?
