And?
testers feel very dry but then they are open and no lids.

Looking for a taupe shade- more grey than brown.

Do you mean the ones that come in little jars? I love, love, love them.

Try the Slate, it is a kind of grey/brown and v.useful as an everyday shade - I also use it as a soft eyeliner.

yes that's the one I mean!

their website says use with a brush.

Yes I have the brush. It is worth it, although I think the brush was as much as the shadow - possibly more!

I am a bit of a sucker for things like that, but I do adore Bobbi Brown make up. It is really good quality and it lasts for ages.

Worth every penny - lasts ages and stay true. I wore sandy gold to a sweaty wedding in July last year and it was perfect when I collapsed in bed at 2am the next day. Brilliant.

Also brilliant is their shimmer brick and long wear gel eyeliner.

Trés addictive!

Yes, wore some (along with other shadow) for my wedding in a beigey/gold shade.

I am tempted to order online- but tell me they aren't all shimmery as i am too old for that.

anyone got cement or *sand dollar*- and if so, what's the difference?

I've got 'bone' which I use as an every day base layer.
Not at all shimmery.
Also recommend the metallic ones - I have one in 'Galaxy' and its just lovely.

Galaxy is gorgeous, yy! As is chrome patina - a line of that close to lashes makes them perfect for nights out.

I didn't know they did Bone in a pot - mine is a flat powder shadow. I'll investigate that.

Op no, not all shimmery but with Ms Browns makeup, it's not cheap shimmer. It's radiant shimmer.

Sand dollar is a bit shimmery, but in a good way. Slate is completely matt.

On the website, Slate looks very purple- which I don't suit.

Is it?

No it isn't, it is grey/brown.

thanks- might wait until i can get to shops- but just tempted.

I recently got BB cream in Cement and absolutely love it. Really does what it says on the tin (or pot!). A lovely subtle neutral - no purple tinge, no sparkle, which I didn't want. Stays put brilliantly. Haven't got a brush but finger seemed to work OK.
Becca eye tints have always been my favourite but this is my new enthusiasm.

I find they apply better with fingers too - the chap on QVC uses fingers as they warm the cream up and make it sheer. I use a brush for heavier coverage.

strawberryjelly Sat 25-Jun-11 18:20:09

poly thanks- what shade would you say cement is?

strawberryjelly Sat 25-Jun-11 18:21:59

p.s.- is it beige, taupe...? what kind of depth of colour?
I have been using Dior 5 shadow palette Incognito and love the pale-mid grey mixed with a tiny bit of the brown- but there are 2 shades out of the 5 I don't use and it seems a waste to replace.

polyhymnia Sat 25-Jun-11 19:06:34

I would say it's a greyish taupe. Was also looking at the one called malted, but that was a bit too 'warm' for me.

I have that Dior palette too, and also don't use all the shades!

Galaxy fan here too - have brown eyes, it really works and lasts

OpusProSerenus Sat 25-Jun-11 19:13:23

I have a few and love them. Sand dollar is ace for every day, beach honey is also quite light but a bit golder/peachier and lovely with a tan, heather is a rather neutral greyish lilac, galaxy for a slightly darker browny/grey and brown metal for a lovely glittery effect that you can use alone or with the others for a glitzy evening. I use the cream shadow brush and fingers to blend.

I also use the BB gel liner with them which is also really good

Oh I love these so much!
