Hello again lovely people! Happy weekend!
Today’s post is a review on the most beautiful eyeshadow I think I have ever found… Bobbi Brown’s Cement!
If you follow me on Twitter (@sshhbeauty) you probably saw me having a little rave about this, but seeing as I’ve given it a fair test now I’m going to review it for you.
You know me, I love sleek little compacts, no fuss, no extra bulk – I just think that they look more expensive (and they slip really neatly into your makeup bag too!).
Although it can be hard to open (but that’s probably just me begin a weakling) I adore the packaging and it’s really sturdy too so it’s ideal to travel with. I also like how you can see the shade through the lid – I have a couple of these eyeshadows (one of which I duped here!) and knowing the colour before I open it is just handy.
Now onto the shade… Ooh, it’s just so pretty! I love it!
I would describe it as being a taupe-bronze with a slight rosy tint to it… And then add a load of chunky glitter!
Just a little warning – the glitter is very chunky, so if you’ve got sensitive eyes it could irritate them a little.
The glitter is so intense on the lids that it’s perfect with subtle skin, lots of mascara and then a nude lip – it just looks knockout!
And even though there’s a lot of glitter it’s still perfect for everyday wear – as well as an evening out.
I also found the lasting power to be incredible – it didn’t budge during the day but at the same time it was a dream to remove!
Here’s a swatch!
Packaging: 5/5 (sturdy, sleek, compact)
Formula: 4/5 (gorgeous chunky glitter, but could irritate sensitive eyes!)
Colour choice: 5/5 (a nice neutral colour selection)
Overall quality: 5/5
Recommended? Yep! If you’re looking to indulge in a luxury eyeshadow you can’t really go wrong with this – wearable shade, amazing lasting power and a stunning shine!
