Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick

Smoosh, smoosh, smoosh. That is literally how easy it is to create a smokey eye with these pencils (as modelled by Katie Holmes, who's Bobbi Brown's new 'face').

Super-soft, blendable - but truly as long-lasting as they promise (and no creasing, either) - they're our new lazy day eye must-haves, for when we can't be bothered with the faff of powder and brushes.

A smooth texture - with vitamins C and E in the blend of waxes, oils and 'film-formers' (which deliver budge-proof-ness) - ensures Long-Wear Cream Shadow Sticks glide over skin, where you can then 'smoosh' beautifully with a finger.

Some shades are matte, some glimmery - we like Bark and Shadow for the eye-line/socket, and Vanilla for the brow-bone (and a flattering touch of glimmer at the inner corner of the eye).

Bobbi, you've done it again.  Truly, where would our make-up bags be without you, hon?
