Swatch + Color Talk: Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner in Ivy Shimmer Ink
Posted Jun 04 2009 12:00am
Remember this post? That was from the glorious night when I finally got my paws on the Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Eyeliner in Ivy Shimmer Ink. I've been wanting this color way before the review came out. Done reading the review? Then you should know that I'm not eager to own many Bobbi gel liners unless I completely adore the color. MAC Fluidline still works a lot better for me.
Read on for the swatch and some color talk. My swatch doesn't do the color justice. Ivy Shimmer Ink is a deep forest green with multi-colored shimmers, silver and green being the more prominent ones. The shade is dark enough to define the eyes and goes really well with beige, blue, brown and lighter green eyeshadows. Compared to Chocolate Shimmer Ink, the texture is less powdery and actually doesn't smudge as easily but wearing this without any eyeshadow or primer still gets me smudges at the inner corner.
