Next in line of Xmas gift ideas is this Beige Gold Long-Wear Eye Kit from Bobbi Brown available from Adore Beauty.

The kit contains five products and a sachet sample which includes;
  • Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Beige Gold (0.9g)
  • Smokey Eye Mascara in Black (3ml)
  • Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner (3g)
  • Ultra Fine Eyeliner Brush
  • Instant Long-Wear Makeup Remover (30ml)
  • Hydrating Eye Cream Sachet (1.5g)

Personally I’m very excited about this kit. I LOVE Bobbi Brown products, and being on the run with a baby and a toddler means that I’ve hardly got any time for myself to get ready, so I rely on products which are quick and easy to use. Hence I was particularly excited about the Eye Shadow Stick. And it has been love at first sight, as this super wearable beige gold stick with just a touch of shimmer is perfect for a simple and natural every day wear, but it is also super easy and so quick to apply and stays put all day. And I love that you can build up the colour so to make it more intense if you like. I’d definitely consider purchasing more of these!
I also use a liquid eye liner every day, but usually in a pen form, so not so used to a pot and a brush, but once I got the hang of it, this little pot of eye liner is pretty amazing too, and as the name suggests stays put all day long. The shade Espresso Ink is a very dark brown that is again very wearable for everyday casual wear as it is not quite as ‘harsh’ as a black eyeliner, whilst still being a solid dark shade.
The Eye Liner Brush is obviously a necessary tool for a pot of eye liner, and the quality is second to none. I would have preferred the tip of the brush to be slightly thinner so I could draw a finer line, but then again, it may just be me totally inexperienced with applying eye liner this way!
Next up is the mascara, which as I expected is pretty good. It has a large soft brush that makes it easy to coat every single lash, making them both longer and giving them lots of volume at the same time. One thing that I also love is that it is immediately usable without clumping or dispensing too much mascara – don’t you just hate it when new mascaras do that! And it also feels super gentle on the lashes and doesn’t irritate my otherwise sensitive eyes.
Also included is a small bottle of the Instant Long-Wear Makeup Remover. And this is pretty effective, removing all traces of the makeup instantly without the need to drag or pull at the sensitive eye area. It is a little greasy, but I feel that’s standard for makeup removers targeted at long-wearing and waterproof makeup, but as I always use a treatment cleanser after I’ve removed my makeup that removes any greasy residue afterwards anyway.
Finally, the kit also included a small sachet sample of the Hydrating Eye Cream. My immediate verdict is that it is a very nice and effective cream, but being such a small sample, it is obviously difficult to speak of the long-term results. But certainly I do like and could consider purchasing again.
Overall, I think this is a really good Makeup Kit from Bobbi Brown – I really enjoy every single product, and I know they will quickly become everyday favourites. I really love the eye shadow stick, which is probably the stand-out product for me, but I am quickly warming to the eye liner pot, and the mascara you can only love too. The only think that I feel would have been an ideal inclusion into the kit as well would have been an eyeliner pencil for the waterline, but then, I have heaps of those already.
So all around a fantastic makeup kit, for a classic everyday neutral look, and the perfect way to get introduced to the makeup from Bobbi Brown.
