Bare Escentuals Buxom Stay There Eyeshdow

02Oct10

BE has come out with a new product line for Buxom as a companion for the Buxom Babes, Stay-There Eyeshadow all in different, vibrant shades.  They are creamy but have such a wet, fluffy, memory foam like texture!  I haven’t seen cream shadows like these before.  Worth going to Sephora to check out (the only place they are available – just be sure not to apply it to your eye and use hand sanitizer when you’re done, people are curious and not always sanitary) Anyway…

I picked up Poodle during the sephora VIB swagbag giveaway since it looked like a base I would use under shadows like I use the MAC shadesticks.  Now, the shadesticks don’t make my eye makeup budge proof so I use primer and while the Buxom stay there shadow lasted longer on their own, I still need a base (bummer, lots of people are having good results with these).  They lasted about 6 hours which is pretty darn good.  I used it for a few days with UDPP and it creased in the same amount of time (bummer).

Application: Since I’m not use to working with cream shadows, they were a bit unwieldy at first with the brush – using my finger made it easer to apply evenly.

Bottom line: I’d like to return the brush and the shadow, my eye lids are just too oily.  Such a shame, the glitterific factor is high with these, the texture is amazing and it’s an interesting cream shadow concept. I never went back to figure out why my script shrank these funny, sorry!
