Bobbi Brown Golden Bronze Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick
Bobbi Brown Golden Bronze Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick

Bobbi Brown Golden Bronze Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick ($28.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “deep bronze sugar.” It’s a warm-toned, caramel bronze with pale bronze shimmer. It has a soft, frosted finish–not quite metallic but not just a frost. The consistency was very creamy and emollient–but in a way that didn’t feel too wet or take forever to set when applied to the lid, just in a way that made it apply smoothly and with rich, full color coverage. It sets fairly quickly, so you will want to make sure you work one eye at a time. MAC Brownluxe #4 is darker. Edward Bess Cosmic Bliss #4 is similar. Giorgio Armani #10 #4 is warmer. Le Metier de Beaute Autumn Rust is slightly darker. Bobbi Brown Bronze is similar. Urban Decay Deeper is similar. Chanel Promesse #3 is warmer. bareMinerals Ritzy is darker. See comparison swatches.

Bobbi Brown Sunlight Gold Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick ($28.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “beige gold.” It’s a pale, warm-toned light gold with subtle yellow undertones and a frosted, slightly metallic, finish. It had fairly good color payoff in a single stroke, and it was buildable to mostly opaque color. The consistency was lightly creamy but still sets fairly quickly so work one eye at a time. MAC Vanilla Diamond is more sparkly. Chanel Convoitise is yellower. MAC Pastelluxe #1 is more sparkly. Disney Charming is lighter. Disney Sea Shells is also lighter. Urban Decay Illusion is similar. MAC Dazzlelight is lighter. MAC Halo is similar. Benefit Bikini-tini is very similar. Make Up For Ever #126 is less shimmery. See comparison swatches.

Both shades lasted well on me for eight hours; after ten hours, I had some very subtle creasing and slight fading.

    I am a huge Bobbi Brown fan. However, I have to say I really dislike the Shadow Sticks. I had one and I couldn’t get it to work no matter what I did. The shadow was very patchy and would not apply smoothly. I tried it with and without primer. The color was so pretty, but I returned it. I was so sad to have done that. But it was $30 after taxes for a basically useless product.

    • Hey Liz!

      Which color did you try? I felt like not all were created equal, unfortunately!

        I had Golden Pink. I know you gave it an A+. So, I was so surprised when I couldn’t get it to apply smoothly. I tried using my fingers, a cream shadow brush, as well as applying directly from the tube to my lid. As I mentioned earlier, I tried it with and without primer. I chatted with an artist on bobbi’s website and was told not to use primer. It still didn’t work. I’ll stick to Laura Mercier Caviar sticks, which work well for me.

        • I’m so bummed it worked so poorly for you Liz! Really sorry about that – I am glad that there is an eyeshadow pencil that DOES work well for you :)

    oh wow I love these, especially the golden bronze!

  3. I love both of these! These are the sort of shades I like to keep in my makeup bag.

  4. I feel like I’ve seen a lot of similar products in similar shades lately, but that doesn’t take away from how completely beautiful these colors are. Metallic-finishes can be difficult for me though, especially cream-formulas, because they often make my eyelids look dry and crackly

  5. I’d love to give these a try. The only eyeshadow sticks I have ever tried were from Gosh.

    Xtine, do you know how does Golden Bronze compare to Laura Mercier’s Sandglow?
