Bobbi Brown Violet Plum Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick
Bobbi Brown Violet Plum Long-Wear Cream Bark Stick ($28.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “deep shimmer eggplant.” It’s a dark, shimmering plum with red undertones and subtle plum, red, and violet shimmer. Bobbi Brown Black Violet is a touch less red-toned but otherwise is very comparable. Urban Decay Tornado is a powder eyeshadow, and it’s a bit purpler. I was surprised not to find more similar shades.
It has semi-opaque color coverage, but I was not able to build up the color to get fully opaque color, and compared to the other shades, the pigmentation in a single stroke was noticeably sheerer. The color applied evenly, which is important, because uneven, sheer color is something that can look off even from a distance. I did experience some very light creasing after eight hours, though it did not seem to worsen too much more when I checked at the ten-hour mark. The consistency was creamy enough that it glided on and didn’t pull at the lid, and it didn’t take too long or too little time to set.
