BOBBI BROWN SAYS: This limited edition Eye Palette has everything you need to make eyes sparkle with rich, bronzy metallics, rose golds and deep browns. Comes in a gorgeous faux-croc case that you’ll love to pull out at parties.
MONSTER SAYS: One of Bobbi’s prettiest palettes, thankfully void of any dull grey-based beige tones. Works well with my medium-tan skin tone, but would be notably warmer on lighter skins. A few of the colors are a bit redundant and this palette could have used a matte brown (like Rich Brown) to really pull it together. A great palette, but not quite a must have – unless you’ve been waiting for a truly “warm” collection.
Warm Glow Eye Palette Includes: Flesh Shadow (warm pale cream matte), Beige Shadow (warm beige matte), Golden Pink Metallic Shadow (warm pink gold shimmer), Bonfire Shimmer Wash Shadow (warm copper shimmer), Rose Metallic Shadow (soft rosy pink shimmer), Gold Sparkle Shadow (champagne sparkle), Velvet Bronze Metallic Shadow (rich golden bronze shimmer), Golden Bronze Metallic Shadow (golden bronze shimmer), Rich Caviar Shadow (rich black brown matte).
On Eyes: Flesh on brow bone, Beige in crease blended with Bonfire, Black Chocolate Long-Wear Eye Pencil along the lash line softened with Scotch Perfectly Defined Gel Eyeliner, smudged with Velvet Bronze and Rich Caviar, Gold Sparkle on inner corners.
→Bobbi Brown Lip Color ($26) in Nude (medium brownish pink), NEW Caramel (neutral tan), Sandwash Pink (beige pink).
On Lips: Bobbi Brown Lip Color in Caramel (neutral tan), Lip Pencil in Chocolate.
Bobbi always comes out with amazing holiday limited edition items and this year is no exception. The Mini Eye Palette ($35) fits in your hand and is packed with shades that can transform any day look to one that is party ready or full-on dramatic.
The Mini Palette Includes: Bone Shimmer Wash Shadow (off white shimmer), Sugar Plum Metallic Shadow (soft pink shimmer), Cool Ivory Shadow (pale cool grey matte), Pink Rose Sparkle Shadow (soft rosy pink sparkle), Nude Shadow (pale nude matte), Opal Sparkle Shadow (pale silver sparkle), Gold Sparkle Shadow (champagne sparkle), Saddle (dark grey brown matte).
Also available – NEW Lip Pencils ($22). One of the best selling lip liners was Bobbi Brown Chocolate with Clove Lip Color (for those of you who used Bobbi long enough to remember that color). While the formula is creamier (I prefer a stiffer liner) and the color a bit redder than the original – the Chocolate Lip Pencil is still a great basic for medium to tan skin tones. I also picked up Bobbi Lip Pencil which is a dusty mauve shade. I’ll be picking up the Pale Mauve which hopefully better replicates the Heather Eye Liner that we used to create a muted naked lip.
The exclusive Sandy Nudes Eye Palette ($65) is available online (bobbibrowncosmetics.com) and at select travel retail locations like DFS Galleria in Waikiki. This palette reminds me of the Rich Chocolate Palette – a combination of grey browns and neutral sparkle. The shades are a bit light and too ashy for my medium tan skin tone – but would be quite flattering on those with lighter skin tones, particularly those with blue eyes.
Sandy Nudes Includes: Cream Eye Shadow (creamy beige matte), Ash Eye Shadow (midtone brown grey matte), Chiffon Sparkle Eye Shadow (golden pink opal sparkle), Nude Eye Shadow (mauve peach matte), Stone Metallic Eye Shadow (silvery purple grey shimmer), Champagne Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow (light golden peach shimmer), Caramel Sparkle Eye Shadow (silvery brown sparkle), Rich Caviar Eye Shadow (rich brown black matte).
