I’ve been looking for a matte nude, cream base shade for a while now. I couldn’t ignore the positive reviews of Shore (£16.50) which has been described as the perfect nude cream base shade by many.
Although the Bobbi Brown cream formula is not my favourite as I find it drying, I can’t argue with its long lasting abilities.
I’d held off buying this for a while as I wondered that it might be too warm.
Indeed it is, it swatches darker than I had expected but its when I apply it that it really goes wrong.
I do get a beige nude shade, however it has a visible yellow/orange hue to it that makes it unwearable for my complexion.
I think its easy to get caught up with positive reviews for a product without taking a step back and actually thinking about if it will work for your own complexion. Whilst this is very wrong for me I don’t doubt that this would work for those who are darker than me and not cool toned.
I tend to get more misses than I do hits with BB but that hasn’t stopped me eyeing up her soon to be released Tortoise Shell Eye palettes.
I bought this from bobbibrown.co.uk
