Bronze Goddess for Less! Bobbi Brown Vs. Rimmel

Today I thought I'd share a little gem of a product I've recently discovered. I'm a huge fan of the bronze smokey eye and one of my favourite ways to achieve it is using cream eyeshadows. They're just so quick and easy to apply, and (if you use a good one!) will last all day without a primer.
One of my favourites this summer has been Bobbi Brown's Bronze Sugar. A gorgeous, shimmery bronze that is easy to apply and looks beautiful with a tan. The problem is in the price tag. At £17 the don't come cheap so when I discovered the following product I jumped for Joy!
Rimmel's Colour Mousse 8 Hr eyeshadow in Mocha isn't an exact match shade-wise (I actually think I might prefer it to the Bobbi Brown?!) but it gives a very similar finish, and therefore creates the same gorgeous, bronzed goddess type of look... for much less cash!

Rimmel's Colour Mousse eyeshadows come in 8 shades, are priced at £4.99 and is available now.

  17. I used to have Mocha but lost it. I used to use it all the time while in College and found that it lasted really well.
    After seeing it again I know I'm going to have to repurchase
