Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Metallic Cream Shadow~ Brown Metal 4~Review and swatches

If it’s pink or sparkly, then I want it! ~ Girly quote  

Well, yessss!!! The product that I would be reviewing today is not pink but is definitely sparkly and it is the Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Metallic Cream Shadow in the shade Brown Metal 4. So, without further ado, let’s hop right into the post.



An award-winning cream shadow infused with glistening sparkle. The lightweight formula goes on comfortably and leaves a soft, velvety finish—for up to 12 hours of water, sweat, humidity and transfer-resistant wear. Its uniquely clear base and multidimensional mix of glittering pigments and shimmering pearls means it stays color-true and crease-free all day.

How to use: For sheer color, apply with your fingers on bare lids. For a dramatic look, use the Cream Shadow Brush (sold separately) and apply in two layers.

My take on Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Metallic Cream Shadow~ Brown Metal 4:

This little cutie comes in a cute glass tube with a circular screw lid.The sturdy packaging and size makes it easy to throw it in my purse while travelling. An applicator brush is required which is sold separately.


Color: Brown Metal is a fabulous beige/champagne shade filled with zillions and zillions of shimmers. It is a universal shade so it would flatter all kinds of skin tones. I often wear it during night-outs or on special occasion as it makes my eyes appear sparkly and glamorous. It works great on my oily lids since the formula is waterproof and transfer resistant.


Texture: The formula is lightweight and creamy in consistency and glides softly over my lids. The glitters present are not gritty and is comfortable to wear. The only issue I faced with this product is that it tends to dry out really fast but hey no worries, because it can be fixed and revived with a makeup thinner available in the market.


Pigmentation: Truly pigmented! It goes opaque in two to three swipes. The color is light yet build able as seen on the swatch. It provides a beautiful sparkly finish without making one look tacky.

Staying power: It lasted for 5 to 6 hours on me without budging on my oily lids. A makeup remover is recommended while taking it off.


The good things:

Gorgeous color

Smooth texture

Good color payoff


Travel friendly

Long wearing

No budging


The bad things:

The product dries out within two months ( Although it can be revived easily)

Unavailability in India

Rating: 3.8/5

Recommendation: Yes, it is a stunning color if you are into glitters.
