Bobbi Brown Sparkle Eyeshadow

Bobbi Brown Sparkle Eye Shadows

Last Christmas I bought some Bobbi Brown products for myself. I love Bobbi Brown's base products, such as foundations and correctors and concealers, but I did not have many other products. That day I added a beautiful nail polish (now one of my favorites) and  two of those gifts were sparkle eye shadows to my Bobbi Brown products. 

The sparkle eye shadows were high in demand, so eventually they became a part of the permanent collection of Bobbi Brown. Good for us, because I think these babies are amazing. The sparkle eye shadows come in 11 different colors and I bought "Sunlight" and "Cement". The shades consist of shimmering pearls and lots of fine sparkles. The shadows are more sheer, so do not expect them to give off a lot of pigment, but some of the shades give off more pigment than the others.

My two lovely sparkle eye shadows come in pretty little square boxes and consist of 3 grams of product. The top of the box is transparant so you can clearly see the color. I really like the package, because it also makes it easy to organize! You can apply it in two different ways: sweep with your brush or press with your finger. The latter gives off more product and causes less fall out, but the former looks far more subtle. Even though the shades consist of mainly glittery sparkles, the eye shadows do not feel rough at all (like glitters often do). 

Bobbi Brown Sparkle Eye Shadows Sunlight Cement

"Sunlight" is a warm golden shade that makes me agree with its name. It is really sheer, because I barely see any pigment other than the glitters. Whereas "Cement" gives off a soft brownish shade and has silvery pink sparkles. What a beauty, right?! The lovely glitters do not cause any creasing and they stay on your eye lids all day, which is amazing. I like applying these sparkles all over the base of my lid with simple eyeliner and mascara for a daily look without any fuzz but some subtle sparkles. It just adds that something special to a simple look. These shadows also work amazingly with fancier looks. The only down side (as with almost anything glittery) is that there can be fall out, especially when you apply it with a blending brush for a more subtle look. If you want an example of sparkle eye shadows being used in a more complicated look, click here to see my 2nd Christmas look last year. Well, the price could be considered a second down side. The products are not cheap. They cost €31/$32 each, which makes it the most expensive mono eyeshadow by Bobbi Brown. I mean, that is pretty expensive for a sheer sparkly eye shadow, but it was well worth it for me. Who knows, maybe I will end up buying some other shades from this line as well.. if my wallet allows it! Have you tried such pretty sparkle eye shadows before? What do you think of the two shades and how would you incorporate it into a look?!

  1. Wow wat zijn dit prachtige kleuren! Deze ga ik me misschien ook aanschaffen! Ik gebruik in het weekend meestal glinsterende oogschaduw van Dior.

    1. Eigenlijk had ik geen dekking verwacht toen ik de producten net ontdekte, dus ik was al verrast bij "Cement" dat er nog zo'n mooi zacht kleurtje bij zat! ^^ Maakt het ook makkelijker als je de glitters bovenop andere kleuren oogschaduw aanbrengt.

  11. Wow, these are SO SO sparkling! I don't really own any singles like these, but I have a small handful of similar things in quints/palettes. I usually dab a little bit of it on for the center of my lid for extra illumination! Not really something I want to wear as a wash though :)

    1. I tend to do that as well with fancier looks! I just like the simplicity and subtlety (because the sparkles are more spread out when applied with a blending brush) of the eyeshadow worn as a wash... and then a nice cat-eye wing! ^^ Whatever works, right?!

  13. Ik vind de kleurtjes echt heel mooi, heel apart! De prijs is wel wat minder, 30 EUR per stuk is echt niet goedkoop, maar als je ze de moeite waard vind dan mag dat zeker en vast ;) We mogen onszelf wel wat gunnen he!

    1. Jaa, het is inderdaad niet het goedkoopste product om te halen.. maar inderdaad.. deze twee kleurtjes waren helemaal de moeite waard ^^ en ik gebruik ze ook heel veel, dus dat maakt ook een verschil :) x

  14. Mooie kleuren! Ik heb er zelf ook een. In de kleur.. Mika? Het effect is echt heel mooi, maar ik vergeet hem steeds te gebruiken. Nu ik jouw artikel lees moet ik hem er toch maar weer eens bij pakken :)

  15. Niet zoveel pigment maar de glans is wel prachtig, leuk om over een andere oogschaduw heen te doen!

  16. If you need under eye coverage try Bobbi's Tinted Eye Brightener! I searched for a looonnngg time for something to brighten my dark circles and this works miracles :). Sunlight shadow seems like it would be beautiful with brown eyes.

  17. Mooie kleuren! Al hadden ze van mij wel iets intenser gemogen!

  18. Mooie kleurtjes! Hoewel ik zelf liever meer pigment zou willen en minder sparkles voor dagelijks gebruik ^^

  19. Oew, Cement is so pretty! Ik vind het heel vreemd van mezelf, maar ik heb alleen nog maar de corrector van Bobbi Brown geprobeerd. Zal toch eens mijn horizon moeten verbreden!

  20. Perfect shades for the holidays! Love them both!
