Bobbi Brown Sand Dune Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick
Bobbi Brown Sand Dune Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick ($28.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “medium beige tan.” It’s a subtly warm-toned, medium beige-tan with a mostly matte finish. Urban Decay Beware is darker and matte. Too Faced Marzipan is lighter. MAC One to Watch is very similar in color. MAC Tete-a-tint is warmer and matte.
Sand Dune will work well as a more neutral base as well as a brightening lid color (depending on your skin tone). It tends to give my natural lid a more even, warmer look without being too drastically different from the skin tone (and I have a medium complexion with warm undertones). The consistency is creamy and glides on well over the lid without pulling or tugging, and the color deposits evenly and with opaque color. Though still creamy, it was just slightly drier compared to some of the other shades. It dried down fast enough not to gather into the creases but gave me enough time to blend and work it into the lid. It wore well for a full eight hours, though I went as far as ten hours and still didn’t have problems with creasing or fading.
