Bobbi Brown Black Velvet Collection!
I was walking through my department store and was coming across the Bobbi Brown counter, when these shadows stopped me in my tracks!
These are the New Sparkle eye shadows from the Black Velvet Collection.
I picked up two of the Sparkle eye shadows, one in Black and another in Black Velvet. It's hard to tell in these photos but they both have blue and purple shimmer flecks in them, and it's so beautiful!
I am really loving these! They have almost a buttery feel to them, they are really soft.
They are very pigmented, but are easy to blend. They are a mix of shimmer and glitter so you will get some fall out, but you won't lose all of the glitter on your lids.
I have used other glittery shadows and I've always found that by the end of the day all the glitter is on my face and the base color of the shadow is all that's left on my lids (and I always use a primer/base) which is no fun, but with these I was pleasantly surprised that I still had lots of sparkly glitter on my lids at the end of the day.
These are great for a smoky eye, and they look so beautiful layered over other shadows.
I wouldn't say these are for everyone since they are so extreme on the glitter but if you are a lover of pretty, sparkly shadows, like me, then you will love these!
There are other great products out with this collection as well.
The New Sparkle eye shadows can be found at your local Bobbi Brown Counter or at http://www.bobbibrowncosmetics.com/home.tmpl for $24.
