Bobbi Brown Blue Moon Long-Wear Cream Shadow
Bobbi Brown Blue Moon Long-Wear Cream Shadow ($24.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “shimmering bright blue.” It’s a medium blue with a very subtle sheen. Make Up For Ever #25 is lighter, frostier. Maybelline Tenacious Teal is a little more aqua-blue in comparison. MAC Blue Candy is lighter. Wet ‘n’ Wild Fly me to the Moon is a step or two darker.
This shade goes on very sheerly, and it was difficult to build up the intensity. If you take a ton of product, you can get opaque color, but applying and smoothing it out on the lid ends up in as a rather patchy result. The best method that worked for me was to apply one layer, wait about 15-30 seconds, then apply a second, wait another 15-30 seconds, and apply a thrid, and possibly a fouth, layer. The problem with that method was there was some faint but noticeable creasing after six hours. When I used a sheer layer, there was very minor creasing–after eight hours, though. Blue Moon had a soft, creamy texture that blended easily so long as you went for a sheer application.
|It's buildable, but the more layering you do, the more it compromises the wear--a sheer layer has minor creasing after eight hours while more opaque color had more noticeable creasing after six hours. As a base color, it works better and didn't crease.|
