Hi everyone! I hope you had a great 4th of July! Also, the reason you haven’t heard from me during the holiday, I went to the beach for a few days. In fact, it was the first time I really got out of my house since March 12th! Although there was no inside dining, just curbside take-out, there was little need for a lot of makeup. So, I chose easy,neutrals. Simple. I took my Bobbi Brown Dual-Ended Cream Eyeshadow Sticks. I have three of them. Therefore, I had six shades to choose from!
You can find the Dual-Ended Cream Eyeshadow Sticks on Bobbi Brown’s Website. Additionally, the Dual-ended sticks (0.5 oz./ 1.6g) costs $34. Even more, $34 is a really good price since the BB cream eyeshadow sticks, one ended, costs $30! So, for 4 dollars more, you get two complementary shades. As a result, you can do a whole look with those two shades.
Why Are Dual-Ended Cream Eyeshadow Sticks Perfect to Wear In Summer Months?
First of all, I love to wear cream eyeshadow sticks in the summer. One of my favorite sticks is the Sisley Phyto Eye Twist Crayon, which happens to be a single stick. But, it comes in lots of great shades. Also, I love that is has a waterproof formula. What I don’t love is the price. One stick costs $50. And, it has the exact same amount of product as the Bobbi Brown Dual-Ended Sticks. What I love most about Bobbi’s dual-ended sticks is they are more affordable. Also, they are duos, so you get two products in one stick.
Okay, so usually, I wear powder eyeshadow all winter. However, once the weather gets warm outside, I love using a creamy eyeshadow. Especially, I love the ease of a stick. First, you can apply the stick in one step. In fact, cream eyeshadow is a great alternative to eyeshadow primer, or eyeshadow base.
Even more, you don’t need a brush to apply a stick eyeshadow. As a result, cream eyeshadow sticks are great to slip on to go to the beach, pool, or whatever you like to do in the summer. The easy application is quick, and fool-proof. Again, the dual-ended stick is perfect for summer, because you can apply it anywhere, in about ten seconds. All you need is your fingertips. Although, the thing I love most about the dual-ended sticks is each stick has two complementary colors. One is lighter than the other. So, both shades can be worn alone, or to create a complete, smoky eye, together.

The Bobbi Brown Dual-Ended Cream Eyeshadow Sticks Formula
To begin with, the formula easily glides on your eyes. Therefore, the formula is tugg-free! Then, the formula dries down to a flexible, water-resistant finish. Bobbi claims the cream shadows will last eight hours. I can attest to the formula being long-wearing, mine lasts all day, until I take it off. Even more, the formula won’t budge in hot, humid weather. That is another reason I love wearing cream shadows in the summer. They won’t budge, even sitting in the hot sun.
The Bobbi Brown Dual-Ended Cream Eyeshadow Sticks Shades
For one thing, I purchased all three shades on the BB Website. Some of these shades are already cream eyeshadow single sticks. All three sticks are neutral shades, that can be worn in the day. Also, when worn together, you can shade, line and define your eyes. Furthermore, you can do all this in about ten seconds.
First Truffle, a creamy beige shade, has a shimmering finish. Next, Bronze, a true light bronze shade, has a shimmering finish. To start, glide Truffle all over your eyelids, and in your crease.
Then, use your fingertips to blend the true bronze shade with the creamy beige shade on your eyelids, and up to your crease. Also, line your lower lash lines with the bronze shade.
Peach Mimosa / Taupe
I love this color combination. First, Peach Mimosa, a light peach shade, has a shimmering finish.
Then, Taupe is a medium shade of caramel.To start, glide Peach Mimosa all over the eyelids. Also, put it in the crease. Next, put Taupe in the crease, and the outer corners of your eyes. Last, line your lower lash line with Taupe. I love the neutral peach shade, with the pretty sparkle on the lids! Peach looks amazing on everyone. So does the taupe shade, that compliments the peach sparkle.
Dusty Mauve/ Malted Pink
First, Dusty Mauve, a lavender shade, has a shimmering finish. Next, Malted Pink is a deep nude pink shade. Dusty Mauve looks great on your eyelids.
The deep nude pink will add some definition, to your lower lash line, and in your crease.
My Final Thoughts On Bobbi Brown Dual-Ended Cream Eyeshadow Sticks…..
First, the cream shadow sticks are great if you are going to be on the beach all day. Although, they are not waterproof, they are water and sweat resistant. Furthermore, all three sticks are neutral. Even more, the application is not only fool-proof, it is effortless. Even more, you can apply these shades even while you are on the go.
Finally, I think it is brilliant to have two shades that compliment each other all in one stick. And, you don’t even need a brush! Just use your fingertips. Talk about a great for travel product. It takes up no room at all. Last, the formula is vegan, cruelty free and gluten free. Need I say more?
