Bobbi Brown Metallic Eye Shadow in 'Velvet Plum 3'

Hello everyone,
I hope you're all well.
Today I wanted to do a full review of the Bobbi Brown Metallic Eye Shadow in 'Velvet Plum 3' which I got over a week ago to use for prom.
If you haven't already seen the prom pictures, and would like to see my makeup, hair and dress, then please click HERE.
However, now onto the eyeshadow itself.

The colour 'Velvet Plum 3' is a beautiful mix of plum, copper and bronze with gold, silver and almost pink/plum shimmer. To me it is quite a unique shade that looks gorgeous blended into the crease to slightly deepen your look.
I also love the packaging of the product as it is very sleek and feels like good quality.
I absolutely love the colour 'Velvet Plum 3', as it can be washed over the lid for a sheer bronzed look, or packed onto the crease and really blended out which is perfect for a more evening look.
Because of the heavy shimmer, the product almost feels quite rough when swatched, but don't let that put you off as the quality of the product is still amazing.
It is really easy to apply and blend as there is little fall out, and I find it to last extremely well and not crease on me, despite my oily eyelids. 

Overall I love this eyeshadow a lot.
The quality is amazing as it is so easy to apply, lasts all day and doesn't crease or smudge.
The colour is beautiful and I think it would go with many skintones. 
I also got quite a few compliments of the eyeshadows I was wearing for my prom night, which I always think is a good sign.
So, it really is love!
