Bobbi Brown Eyeshadow in Camel - The Everyday Eyeshadow

This eyeshadow featured in my October favourites and I'm not surprised i didn't mention it sooner! It isn't just any matte eyeshadow, it is the PERFECT matte eyeshadow! I'm not one to really wear mattes but this shade has completely converted me. 

I think the name 'Camel' describes the shade very well. It isn't the typical warm brown eyeshadow. It has an earthy undertone to it, and isn't cool nor warm, which makes it pretty ideal for all skintones.

It applies very well onto the lid, and isn't chalky or powdery. I find that some mattes are a hit or a miss. I do have to use this over Urban Decay Primer Potion, as my eyeshadows do crease.

You can use this in a number of ways and my favourite way is just to apply it to the lids as a wash of colour. It is a 'my lids, but better shade'. It gives my eyes a bit of colour, so you can see i have something on, but it doesn't look too much. The other great things about Camel is that you can use it as a transitioning colour. Have you ever found yourself doing a super smokey eye and you're forever blending? Well use camel to transition the darker eyeshadow and it will make your life so much easier.

It isn't a cheap eyeshadow, costing £18, however you do get 2.5 grams. This is much more than what you get with MAC eyeshadows. The other thing that i really don't like, is that i can't just pop it into my MAC or Z palette. They are designed, so you can pop them into their palettes and no other! I kinda wish they sold a magnetic pan form.

My overall thoughts? Apart from the price, I am LOVING this matte eyeshadow! For those warmer skins looking for an everyday matte eyeshadow or a transitioning shade, then try Camel.

  1. This looks so gorgeous! I never was really amazed with a matte eye shadow because they tended to look chalky but this doesn't appear that way at all. Do you think this shade is appropriate for light-medium skin tones? (I am quite fair but my mother and sister are about your colour in winter and a bit lighter than you in summer.)
