Bobbi Brown Goldstone Long-wear Eye Palette

Now I know we haven't talked about it yet, but I am a HUGE Bobbi Brown fan (the makeup artist, not the musician). I have read several of her books and started my Bobbi Brown collection with 2 long-wear cream eye shadows and 1 long-wear gel eyeliner. Coincidentally, that is exactly what is included in one of her new palette's, the Goldstone Palette. Though, these eye shadows are the new Metallic cream shadows rather than the standard version.

Colors included in this kit are:
  1. Goldstone Metallic Long-Wear Cream Shadow
  2. Mineral Dust Long-Wear Cream Shadow
  3. Caviar Ink Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner
  4. Mini dual ended brush.

I love the long-wear cream shadows, they do not crease even on my incredibly oily lids. They are also such a nice smooth application, they just slide right on the lid. The metallic shadows are just beautiful if you like your shadows good and sparkly. They seem to have the same staying power as the originals, and these 2 colors are very neutral.

The gel eyeliners are equally fabulous and water / oil / smudge-proof. They do take a bit of practice to apply, as you don't want to load up the brush too much and you do not want to reload the brush to apply to your lower lashes (the line comes out too harsh otherwise). They are also an item you want to immediately clean your brush after use or it will dry in the brush and become very difficult to remove. But this stuff doesn't smudge or run or do anything other than look fabulous once it's applied. The Caviar Ink color is a nice brown / black color and just wonderful with these 2 shadows.

I think this kit is appropriate for nights out or a little glam in your day (with one shadow applied just to the lid). I really like the metallic shadows, but then I like some sparkle in my life.

I purchased this kit through Bobbi Brown's online store, but it's also available at Nordstrom in store and online.
