Bobbi Brown 24 Karat Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick
Bobbi Brown 24 Karat Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick

Bobbi Brown 24 Karat Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick ($28.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “beige gold.” It’s a pale, champagne gold with a frosted, metallic finish. It had good color payoff in a single stroke and built up nicely. The consistency was lightly creamy–enough to glide across lids without skipping but it didn’t take forever to set. Once set, it stays in place and wore well for eight hours. This is particularly nice for highlighting the inner corner of the eye to brighten. Too Faced Crème Brulee (P) is darker, powder. L’Oreal Gold Imperial (LE, $7.99) is yellower, power. L’Oreal Eternal Sunshine (P, $7.99) is slightly warmer, yellower, and powder. Lancome Eternal Gold (P, $24.50) is powder, slightly yellower. Dior Night Golds #4 (LE) is warmer, powder. See comparison swatches.

Bronze Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick ($28.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “rich bronze.” It’s a medium-dark brown with warm, coppery undertones and bronze and copper shimmer that give it a frosted finish. It had fairly good color payoff in one pass, and it was buildable to mostly opaque color coverage. The consistency was creamy enough that it didn’t skip or tug at the eyelid during application, and the shade wore well for eight hours. Clarins The Essentials #7 (LE) is darker. Too Faced Brown Sugar (LE) is darker. MAC Her Cocoa #3 (LE, $15.00) is a touch lighter, powder. Clinique Fuller Fudge (P, $16.00) is warmer. Milani Intermix (P, $6.99) is very similar, powder. MAC Sizzlin’ Diva (LE, $16.50) is similar. Buxom Mutt (P, $18.00) is less warm-toned. See comparison swatches.

As a note, I couldn’t find a single retailer that still carried Bronze online–not a one–so if it’s something on your must-have list, I would recommend calling a local counter (even the nearest to you, as many retailers will ship to you) to see if they have it.

Tuxedo Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick ($28.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as the “blackest black.” It’s a medium-dark, cool-toned black with a matte finish. It was buildable to mostly opaque color coverage, though it was only semi-opaque in a single stroke. The consistency was stiffer, drier than the other two, and I found it skipped and tugged at the lid a bit. It worked better and more comfortably as an eyeliner. On the lid (or lash line, for that matter), it wore well without creasing or fading for eight hours. NARS Black Valley (P, $25.00) is a gel formula but similar in color. Make Up For Ever #0E (P, $20.00) is darker. See comparison swatches.
