Bobbi Brown Ballet Sparkle Eyeshadow
Bobbi Brown Ballet Sparkle Eyeshadow

Bobbi Brown Ballet Sparkle Eyeshadow ($28.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “light pink glitter.” It’s a smattering of rosy pink (with warm undertones) glitter suspended in a translucent base. I don’t really have similar shades to this, since it’s more of a glitter than it is a regular eyeshadow, but Bobbi Brown Black Ruby (which has a sparkle finish as well) came the closest, but it had more color and a little less sparkle/glitter.

This is one of four shades from the spring collection, and all four shades were described as sheer pastels over a translucent base, so they’re not supposed to be intense or opaque. They are supposed to be “crease-free” and “long-lasting.” Ballet was better than Silver Spoon, as it adhered to the lid better and had minimal fall out over the course of the eight hours I wore it on the lid. There wasn’t enough fall out during application to gripe over either. As I mentioned in my previous review, it’s hard to judge “creasing,” since there’s not enough pigment to give an even, opaque layer such that you know where the color ends and begins. The glitter didn’t gather in the crease, though, which is usually what a product like this would do if it was prone to creasing.

B+
I will reiterate that these are more expensive than I would expect from Bobbi Brown, and I don't like that they contain less than Sparkle eyeshadows before them. I had much better luck with Ballet adhering and wearing throughout the day--none of the fall out issues I had with Silver Spoon.
