Bobbi Brown Bittersweet Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick ($28.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a dark brown with a satin finish and strong warm, orange undertones. Tom Ford Illicit is redder-toned and shimmery. MAC Life’s Luxury is darker, less warm-toned. MAC Eclair is lighter, more coppery. Chanel Ebloui is less orange. Make Up For Ever #14 is shimmery. See comparison swatches.

The consistency of the pencil is creamy without being too thick or slick, so it glides on evenly and smoothly depositing rich color even in a single pass. It covers the lid well, but it sets quickly, so you’ll want to work equally quickly and better to do one eye at a time. Once it sets, it stays in place well for a full eight hours; after nine hours, I get very minor creasing towards my inner lid (where I have the most creases). Bobbi Brown only markets these with eight-hour wear (reasonable, one thing I appreciate!), but if you need them to go longer, you may want to layer your favorite primer underneath, which definitely helps extend the wear for me by an additional two to three hours.

Bobbi Brown is no longer one of “my” brands, and this color looks like it might be a little too warm for me, but I LOVE the idea of eight-hour wear.
Anyone know of a similar product in a different brand, and different color?
