My take on the Bobbi Brown Metallic Long Wear Cream Eyeshadow ~Pink Oyster 16: This little beauty comes in a squarish glass tub with a circular lid that has the logo on it. The shade and description mentioned on a sticker placed beneath the tub.

Color: Pink Oyster is a metallic baby pink color with millions and millions of finely milled shimmers. It looks amazing in both day or artificial lights. It would suit mostly all kinds of Indian skin tones.



Texture: The formula is very soft that glides on comfortably leaving a soft, velvety finish. There are no chunky glitters and it doesn’t flake or fade. I love how it doesn’t settle into the creases. This product is free from fragrance and is 100% safe for contact lens wearers. The major downfall is that you need to work fast while blending it since it dries to a velvety finish.


Pigmentation: As seen on the swatch below, it leaves a sheer coverage in a single swipe. You can layer it up with two or more swipes for a more glamorous look.

Staying power: Since this product is water resistant, it last for 8 to 9 hours on me. It will last longer if used with a primer.

Doesn’t blend well

Rating: 3.8/5

Recommendation: While everything is amazing about this product, the blending part gets a little difficult. There are better products in the market that doesn’t come with such a hefty price tag. Personally, it didn’t work for me and wouldn’t be purchasing.
