[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] Since shadow sticks are some of my very favourite beauty items, these are more than welcome. A good shadow stick is such a time saver and even though they’ve been around forever, they feel more relevant now than palettes and complicated eye looks.
I think the brand has been in an experimental phase for the past few of years trying to find their identity without their founder, so a return to popular staples is exactly what we need to see. There are ten new shades – long time Bobbi fans will find them only fractionally different to what has been before. My memory isn’t good enough to say that some are re-releases or not and let’s remember than fractional difference is what made Bobbi famous in the first place :-).
I’ve got to admit, these first four are my favourites. Moonstone is straight away the pick of the bunch (I notice Victoria Beckham has brought out a very similar shade recently) – it’s a metallic cream with a hint of silver/gold shift and it’s an instant eye brightener. Next is Sunrise Pink, a limited edition shade, which is light pink with a gold shift. Then, it’s Forest, an olive green with a hint of gold, and finally, it’s Golden Amber which is a streak of copper tinted gold.
In this line up, it’s Mica, Espresso and Mulberry.
In this picture, it’s Mulberry which is a deep, reddish brown, Mica, a frosty champagne beige (also an amazing lid brightener) and finally, Espresso which speaks for itself.
From bottom to top: Moonstone, Pink Sunrise, Forest, Golden Amber, Mica, Espresso and Mulberry.
My lids in a) Mica, b) Forest and c) Pink Sunrise. They’re £25 each HERE. I find these do live up to the long-wear title but I’d always carry one in my bag for top ups because nothing is bullet proof in the summer. If you have oily lids or lids that get more oily in the heat, use an eye primer first.
