Ever since She received the new Sephora catalog in the mail, The Beauty Bug has been admiring the eye makeup on the cover, and thinking about how it would look on her. Of course trying to recreate a specific look seen on a model is never easy, but She confidently went Sephora to scope out the cream shadow situation.
According to the Sephora.com, the shadow on the model is Nars Cream Eyeshadow in Corfu.Well wouldn’t you know, The Beauty Bug already had that shadow (but on the cover it looked nothing like it did in the store)! After determining that She had all She needed to create that look, She continued to converse with the sales woman in Sephora and discuss cream eye-shadows. The Sephora rep informed The Beauty Bug that all cream eye-shadows crease, so She should be sure to use a primer. No problem The Beauty Bug thought to Herself, She would use her Laura Geller lid primer.The following day The Beauty Bug woke up extra early for work. She wanted to make sure she had ample time to experiment with her eye makeup. She even thought She might add some MAC Lipglass on to finish off the look and give it an extra sheen. She applied the primer, and then the cream shadow. The result couldn’t have been farther from the look on the Sephora catalog. The color was a lame light brown, not bronze and almost instantly the primer had mixed in with the cream shadow, making the color lighter and less bold. The Beauty Bug was absolutely positive that this wasn’t the shadow on the Sephora catalog cover. Fast forward to 2PM, and the Beauty Bug is noticing major creasing!
Unhappy with her NARS cream shadow experience, The Beauty Bug wandered over to the Bobbi Brown counter this past weekend and decided to put another cream shadow to the test. The Bobbi Shadow is a lot thicker in consistency and texture. After finally getting the attention of the snooty salesman who barely even spoke to her, She purchased new Long-wear cream shadows in Beach Bronze.
While She’d normally side with the welcoming, chatty Sephora rep, The Beauty Bug must admit that the stuck-up Bobbi salesman was right – no primer needed and no creasing at all. Somewhere in Boston the Sephora makeup artists nose is growing for lying to The Beauty Bug!
