Bone is essentially invisible on me – applied, it’s the colour of my skin, more or less. In that sense, I can use it to create a blank canvas and hide any lid discolorations and it’s lovely as a blending out shade or a subtle, elegant brow bone highlight. But there are many, many shadows that perform all these functions and cost considerably less so I’ll save my pennies to put toward more “necessary” Bobbi Brown shadows.
Bone is described as an “off white.” It’s a light beige with a matte finish. It had good color payoff, though the texture was incredibly soft and silky, it was powdery. I highly recommend applying in layers to minimize excess powder fall out. This shade is part of the permanent range. Urban Decay Broken is warmer, more shimmery. theBalm Adagio is similar. Urban Decay Kinky is similar, slightly cooler-toned. Urban Decay Walk of Shame is more beige. MAC Vanilla is slightly warmer. L’Oreal Endless Pearl is yellower. bareMinerals Chance is cooler-toned. Inglot #355 has a slight sheen. See comparison swatches.
