Happy Monday! I hope you’re having a good one, and your week is off to a great start – since it’s the start of the week, I thought I would share a bit of a life and time saver which I’ve been relying on ever since it popped through the letter box! Bobbi Brown’s Dual-Ended Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Truffle & Bronze. It’s a powerhouse of a product which makes early mornings a breeze, and frees up some serious real estate in my makeup bag.
Packaged in an uber slick black double ended crayon, the Dual-Ended Long-Wear Cream Eyeshadow takes all the faff out of creating a super sleek eye look. The fact that there are two complimentary colours of shadow packaged together means that its pretty much foolproof to use, and if you’re off anywhere over Easter – you have to invest in one of these. All you need to do is pop one of these beauties (there are seven colour choices) into your makeup bag and you’re set. Since the formulas on both ends are creams, they’re also super easy to play with – creating as subtle or as intense a look as you’d like.
On one end of the Shadow Stick is Truffle, which is the most perfect shimmery nude you can imagine. I love a swipe of this blended under my brow browbone and in the inner corners for a little added light and shimmer. It’s also a perfect shade if I want a little definition without going for a full-on smokey eye.
The other side, bronze, is the most perfect of shimmery brown shadows. Smudged into the lash line, Bronze gives eyes a casual smudge of definition, but you can also blend it all over the lid for a more elegant, defined look. As you might expect from the queen of subtle beauty, these Shadow Sticks are super blendable, smudge-able and build-able which allow you to create a whole range of looks with a single product! Then, to finish everything off, you just need a lick of mascara, and you’re good to go!
