Overall Say/Summary: When I first bought Bobbi Brown's long wear cream shadow, I was doubtful of the formula. Many brands that claim their cream shadows are long lasting falsely advertise because with my oily eyelids, five minutes after application it's usually a creamy MESS. Bobbi Brown's cream shadow formula is surprisingly the opposite. The shadow is really long lasting indeed! Kudos to Bobbi Brown for not claiming this product to do something it doesn't. The cream isn't really a cream, though. It's more like a cream to powder finish because as soon as you apply it on your eyelids, it's already in powder form. I think that's why this cream is so long lasting; technically it's not really a cream! Overall, I am fond of this cream shadow as I find it to be exactly what Bobbi Brown says it is. I must say, however, if you purchase this product you should realize that for an even application, you have to use your fingers. The cream naturally clumps together so if you use a brush, it's really hard to get an even application; you'll have one area with a lot more shadow than others. If you're like me, you don't like to use your fingers because of contamination and bacteria, so I had to take off a few points for that, but otherwise this is a great product!
