Bobbi Brown Baby Peach Sparkle Eye Shadow review and photos.

Bobbi Brown Baby Peach Sparkle Eye Shadow.

Certain places are very comforting to me when I’m feeling blue.  A temporary break from the norm seems to elevate my spirits instantly.  Personally, I find the simplicity of roaming department stores, in the early hours, to be refreshingly calming.  Bobbi Brown Baby Peach Shimmer Eye Shadow ($33 USD/ 3g) was an immediate draw.  The warm, sparkling reflects were so uplifting and attractive, I could not help but purchase this beauty on the spot.  What better way to chase away my midweek blues and simultaneously burn a hole in my gift card?  I hope you enjoy.  🙂

  • Bobbi Brown Sparkle Eye Shadows are a “combination of shimmering pearls and fine sparkle”. The line consists of nine colors in all and are a permanent addition to the brand.  These lovely topper shades are intended to be added over matte shadows (powder or cream), elevating any look from ordinary to extraordinary–I equate this line to pressed glitter pigments.
  • Baby Peach is a beautiful warm-toned color which is composed of golden peachy flecks with a hint of lavender sparkle, suspended in a clear base.  The opaque coloring (as seen in the pan) is not noticeable on the lids, which is expected considering this shadow is not meant to be applied heavily.
  • The delicate sparkles are not gritty in the least, in-fact, I will go as far as to say the texture is silky smooth.  Once applied on the lids, the sophisticated twinkle looks downright enchanting.  Results are achieved relatively easily, with light patting motions over a preferred matte base.

  • The best way to apply this formula is with fingers; brushes seem to disperse the lightweight sparkles everywhere.
  • One of my favorite ways to control fall-out (not eliminate), is to apply Baby Peach over a cream base before the cream has time to set.  A combination of Bobbi Brown Sand Dollar Cream Eye Shadow and Bobbi Brown Sand Dune Cream Stick (review coming) creates a neutral backdrop which showcases the golden tones of BP beautifully.  This method insures the sparkles meld with the cream and remain on the lid rather than migrate down the face.
  • Of course, any adhesive base can be used, but be forewarned, should you apply this formula in abundance over a dry powder eye shadow (as Bobbi does in this demo video here) be prepared to combat sparkle fall-out throughout the day.
  • Lucky, I have discovered one way that will keep the sparkles in place, for the most part, when using powder eyeshadows.  Make sure to use a clean, dry finger to pick up Baby Peach (do not wet this shadow in the pan–it will harden), spray the finger with a bit of setting spray and then pat the shadow on the lid.
  • The marketing for this line claims eight-hour crease-free wear.  I find this assertion to be a bit misleading, considering a topper shade is beholden to the base applied.
  • Even on my deep-set eyes, a few sparkles do migrate toward my socket bone over the course of the day.  If I were to venture a guess, the same would happen on hooded eyes.
  • After a ten-hour day, a few sparkles lose their adhesive bond and collect on my lashes.  Most of the time, I take on a nonchalant attitude toward these rogue sparkles. However, the kaleidoscopical effect on my vision can be somewhat annoying depending on my mood.  If you are familiar with wearing overly shimmery/sparkly colors you’ll know what I mean.

THE VERDICT:  If Makeup Could Talk what would it say?

Makeup would tell you Bobbi Brown Baby Peach Sparkle Eye Shadow is smitten-worthy for some. Personally, I love sparkle and wear it as often as possible (a heck of a lot more convenient to use than loose pigments).  Of course, my sensible side will admit this is not a must-have product.  The price is a bit over-the-top, but considering how little you need, the shadow will last a while.  Regardless, should my moody blues reemerge, Silver Lilac or Ballet Pink will surely find their way to my home–the glutton within will probably get both.   🙂   Until next time, be well, stay safe and be happy.
