Bobbi Brown Berry Noir Long-Wear Cream Shadow

Bobbi Brown Berry Noir Long-Wear Cream Shadow ($24.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “brown shimmer berry.” It’s a burgundy-shimmered plum with red undertones. When it’s sheered out, it has a redder, browner look, and the plummy tones disappear. If you apply more color or build up the intensity, you’ll see it turns more purple. There were a surprising number of cream-based products like this that were very similar in color! NARS Calabria is comparable to the more opaque swatch. Maybelline Pomegranate Punk is slightly redder. Make Up For Ever #17 is a smidgen lighter. MAC Rich Core is similar but a powder formula. Chanel Eclosion is more intense. Make Up For Ever #311 is a bit darker.

MAC Plush is less violet. MAC Violet is purpler, lighter. MAC Shock-a-holic is fairly close. Urban Decay Purple Haze resembles the sheer swatch. Inglot #439 is slightly purpler.
