Quick Pick: B Stunning Vibrant Eye Shimmer in Rockstar and Lizzie

Another day, another cream eyeshadow.  These are from Superdrug brand B, cost a mere £6.99, and promise a richly pigmented finish.  Unlike the Bourjois cream eyeshadows I tried recently, they have a very creamy texture which translates from the pot to the fingertip.  They spread easily, and set down within a minute or so after application.

Rockstar is described as a metallic mushroom, but I think it's more of a deep purplish grey, and Lizze is a neutral peachy pink.  Lizzie seems to be shimmer-free, which is a little odd given that this product is called B Stunning Vibrant Eye Shimmer.

Rockstar is the stand out colour for me - it's almost a dupe of Chanel Illusoire, although Illusoire has more bright silver shimmer in the finish, where Rockstar is more grungy.  Wear is reasonable - without primer, I get four hours before creasing, and with primer these last around 8 - 10 hours before they start looking a bit bedraggled.  Less oily lids may find them more long lasting.  Application is definitely easier with a synthetic brush than with a fingertip.

Find them now at Superdrug stores, and online (when Superdrug finally update their site to show the new shades).
