I have another exciting product to review for you! It is Bobbi Brown’s Sparkle Eyeshadow. Navratri and Diwali are going to start soon and festivities means a lot of primping and dressing up, and hints of sparkle in my makeup is my favourite look during such events. If you too like such looks, you might just love this eyeshadow. So, let’s find out how this product really is in detail, shall we?
It’s official: Bobbi Brown has made one of the most in-demand fan favourites, Sparkle Eye Shadow, a permanent part of our line. Bobbi’s fresh take on glimmer lights up eyes with a combination of shimmering pearls and fine sparkle. Featuring an incredibly wearable range of bright to soft shades, Bobbi handpicked each colour to complement every skin tone, day and night. Plus, this sparkle packs real punch: after eight hours, the shadow showed 84 percent colour retention on lids and 84 percent crease-free wear.
My Experience with Bobbi Brown Sparkle Eye Shadow – Taupe:
The shade I am going to be reviewing today is called “Taupe” and it is a sparkle eyeshadow and not the normal eyeshadow. My mum purchased this shade for me because she knows I love all things sparkly (in moderation obviously). The packaging of this eyeshadow is really classic, as usual is black in coloured and very sleek and obviously sexy. You can see the colour of the eyeshadow because of a moderately large circle on the top of the box.
Color: It looks coppery brown in the box, with evident undertones of gold shimmer dust. However, when you apply this on your lids, it is mainly a gold glittery sort of colour. The finish is completely shimmery and pearly and would look absolutely lovely with Indian wear during this festive season.
Texture: I would say that the texture of this eyeshadow is smooth and satiny, despite the glitter particles/finish. The eyeshadow does not feel rough or coarse upon application. It is soft and easy to blend, which is pleasant to use since I have had a really bad experience with MAC shimmer eyeshadows in the past.
Pigmentation: The pigmentation of this eyeshadow is not heavily pigmented, I noticed that I was not able to achieve a decent colour with just one stroke. You definitely will need at least 2 coats to build up the colour, which is great since you don’t want to look like a clown with the glitter. I think it is great that you are able to determine and control how much you apply.
Staying Power: I am really pleased with its staying power if I am totally honest with you. I applied this without any eye shadow primer and base and it stayed put for a really long time, about 5-6 hours without creasing or melting off my eyelids. So, it surely will stay by your side on those late Diwali party nights at your friend’s house as you gorge on yummy fried food and sweets.
