Bobbi Brown Long Wear Collection

Bobbi Brown, Long Wear displayBobbi Brown has a mini collection on counters right now, debuting her new Long Wear Eye Pencils and Intensifying Long Wear Mascara (plus a few long wear cream shadows).

Intensifying mascara is a tubing formula (comes off in warm water), that’s supposed to deliver flake-proof, smudge-proof, 16-hour wear. It has a fairly small brush, and (I’ve heard) gives very defined lashes. I haven’t had a chance to try this one myself yet. It’s $24.

The Long Wear Eye Pencils are supposed to be Bobbi’s gel liners in pencil form (faster, more convenient than a pot and a brush). These are super soft, super creamy, a pleasure to apply… but twice now I’ve tested Jet on a swatching day (applying only as tightline and liner on the top lashline), and it not only transferred to my lower waterline, it left ghosts under my eyes. I had better results when I lined the top lashline only — I guess these aren’t meant for tightlining.

Still, I love how blackened all these colors are, and you may have better results than I did. Jet is black. Smoke is dark, industrial, slightly blue, deep grey. Mahogany is a very dark cool brown (love). Black Navy is a very dark nautical blue (love). Black Plum is a dark, shimmery… black plum (I feel so uncreative for saying that, but it’s true). Hunter is deep, dark green. The pencils are also $24 each.

Then there are five new shades of Bobbi’s Long Wear Cream Eyeshadows. Cool Lilac is shimmery peony pink. Black Violet is shimmery black violet. Berry Noir is shimmery rusty, purpled red. Velvet Plum is metallic golden/bronzey-purple. Smoky Topaz is grey-silver-purple. These are — you guessed it! $24 each. You can see swatches of the rest of the permanent Cream Eyeshadows here… actually, don’t look. I did and I ended up putting four of them on my wishlist. (Shore, Sand Dollar, Cement, and Ash, I love youuuu.)

    Love BB but im wondering, how do the BB long wear cream shadows compare to those little pots of cream shadows that chanel put out last spring– illusion d ombre. They are also shimmery. I would really like to know, since BB has so much more of a color range.

    Smoky Topaz eyeshadow looks crazy good!

  • wendy says:

    i am disappointed to hear that eye pencils don’t work that well as the colours are amazing. I have it in hunter but haven’t tried yet.
    the colours of cream shadows are also really nice but unfortunately that i really can’t make them even on my lid (I have in black violet and cool lilac).. they do stay though but unevenly all day long!

  • KateM says:

    I pretty much love every single color of the eyeshadow, but my experience with those have been very NOT long wearing :(

  • Deanna says:

    I’m waiting for Smokey Topaz and Velvet Plum to arrive… they look lovely in the promo pic. Regretting not purchasing Black Navy and Hunter though!

  • Pam says:

    I love BB’s cream shadows but they need to make the container bigger/wider. I use my fingers to apply and I sometimes can’t get enough on my fingertip without getting some under my nails! Argh!

    I love the color selection and these look very pretty. I may need to try the eye pencils since I have long given up on my gel liners–too much trouble. I love Hunter–it’s hard to find such a great green.

    Random question–what do people do with their only slightly used makeup? I like to try everything and I have a lot that barely gets used….just throw it out? Such a waste…
