Bobbi Brown has introduced glamorous Metallic Long-Wear Cream Shadows for fall. These aren’t just new shades. They have a different formula with glittery sparkle in a clear base. The sheer color comes from the sparkly flecks so you can get nice, sheer sparkle or layer on more for fabulous drama. But they still have the same amazing crease-proof, all-day wear her Long-Wear Shadows are known for.

Bobbi Brown Starry Night Metallic Long-Wear Cream ShadowThe Metallic Long-Wear Cream Shadows ($22) are part of the permanent collection and are perfect for the holidays, parties, evenings out, or anytime you want your eyes to really twinkle.

They offer more sparkle than most Bobbi Brown shadows without going overboard. It’s more of a sparkle for grown-ups. They come in eight shades – from neutral metals like silver and gold to colors like blue and violet. I’m wearing Starry Night in the photo and video.

Video Tutorial

In this video, I got a lovely lesson from the wonderful Katrina Rau, Education Executive for Bobbi Brown, at Neiman Marcus in San Francisco. Click on the face chart below to see everything she used.

Here Come the Holidays

Bobbi Brown has a serious bounty of goodies coming out this month in her Holiday Collection. This is the time to load up, because you can get so much for a fraction of what everything would cost if you were to buy the items separately. For example, the Earth Metal Lip & Eye Palette (on the right in photo below) has six shadows, four lip colors, and two pro-quality brushes (not those silly sponge-tip applicators) for $60. Every single one of those items normally runs around $20 so that’s worth about $120.

I love palettes, because you get everything conveniently organized in one nice, little set all coordinated to work together (I really don’t like fumbling around with single shadows). My personal favorite is the Goldstone Long-Wear Eye Palette (bottom palette in middle row below), which has two long-wear shadows, a gel liner, and a double-sided brush for $40. The holiday collection makes my heart pitter-patter. I’ll be shooting a video with the holiday goodies later this month and will post the video and review soon after.

This month, Bobbi also introduces Rich Color Gloss ($20), a new gloss with an all-new formula. I haven’t tried it yet, but it sounds great. They say it features full-color coverage of a lipstick, the soft shine of a gloss, and the luxurious feel of a balm as it moisturizes, conditions, and lasts through the day without feathering. Sign me up! It comes in eight shades, including pale, neutral, deep, and bright options.
