BOBBI BROWN Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick BARK review

I've never been much of a brown eyeshadow/liner lover.
Somehow i always end up with black or other bright colors.
But recently earthy hues has won me over and i find myself experimenting with such shades.
Today i will be reviewing one must have shade (for N*de shade lovers) from BOBBI BROWN Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick called "BARK"
This range is a part of their new launches.
WHAT THE BRAND CLAIMS
Effortless and high impact.
that’s the essence of NEW Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick. This do-it-all formula glides on tug-free and can be used to shade, define, smoke up and highlight eyes. In subtle to eye-popping shades that last for up to 8 hours without creasing, flaking or fading, it’s a stroke of genius.
HOW IT WORKS-
Exceptional Wear, Intense Color
A unique blend of oils, waxes and film formers, gives this water-resistant formula superior 8 hour wear. Color rich emollients provide intense pigment in one easy swipe without flaking or creasing
Antioxidant Vitamins C and E protect the delicate eye area while skin conditioners help create a smooth, comfortable and lightweight feel that is not oily or tacky.
  PACKAGE-
           BOBBI BROWN Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick has a simple twist up pencil package.
                          Jet black cover and the signature Bobbi Brown insignia on the body.
                        The bottom of the stick represents the shades of the Cream Shadow.
This makes it easy to identify in case you have lots of it :p
PIGMENTATION & TEXTURE-
The cream shadow is very pigmented.
Just one swipe is enough to acheive a dense line.
It glides on like a dream and reminds me of Colorbar I-glide .
Has a Velvety finish.
 MY OPINION-
The color is really pigmented and easy to work with.
One swipe is all you need.
Needs about 30-50 seconds to dry.
If you want to wear it as an eyeshadow you need to work within that timeline to make sure you get a smooth look.
As for me,i prefer wearing it as an eye liner as when it is blended it looks a little uneven and i find that messy.
Once the cream shadow is set, it does NOT BUDGE NOR SMUDGE till the end of the day.
I tried rubbing with water and stayed on inspite of that.
I need a make up remover to properly remove it.
Since these are dermatologically and opthalmologist tested i did not experienced any irritation of the eyes even when used on waterline.
And they are cruelty free -so no animal testing :)
Of course a little on the expensive side,but hey its BOBBI BROWN :p
Forest and Plum are definitely shades i would love to try.
AVAILABLE in BOBBI BROWN OUTLETS.
PRICE- Approx $28
Not so sure in India.
Will update it soon.
WOULD YOU BUY THESE?

Available in 8 Shades: Vanilla, Golden Pink, Sand Dune, Iced Blue, Forest, Shadow, Bark, Violet, Plum
