If you didn’t know, my first makeup love was Bobbi Brown. I dabbled with the now discontinued Kanebo T’estimo and then I discovered Bobbi Brown. It all started with a foundation. Then, the cult favourite gel liner (my first was Ink Black) then the pot rouges and then I had to have myself a neutral eye palette. I’m a neutral fiend, so when they came out with the palette system a few years back, I was totally sucked in. Mine is nothing exciting, given I was still a newbie at makeup (before blogging became part of my life) but I’d still like to show you.
Ta-dah! This palette of mine holds 6 eye shadows, and they are (left to right, top row, bottom row) Bone (matte), Beige (shimmer), Heather (matte), Forest (metallic), Velvet Plum (metallic), Saddle (matte). Bone is a great shade to highlight the brow bone. In fact, this is a back up I purchased while I was seriously hitting pan on the one with the old round packaging. Beige is good for an all over wash of barely there colour while Heather can be used on the crease to add some definition. Forest and Velvet Plum are great for a darker look while Saddle is great for smokey eye AND double up as a brow powder. I have no complaints about the wear or texture. They last on my lids for a good 5 hours before creasing (without primer) and they apply beautifully without fall outs. It is because I fell in love with these that I started to go nuts about other brands too.
Here are the swatches:
It’s been sitting in my drawer for the longest time now. You can see how pristine their condition still is. I think it’s time to use it and re-discover how I feel about them now that I’ve tried so many other brands! That would be fun. Do expect some FOTDs using this palette.
What would you have chosen if you were to pick your own 6-pan eye shadow palette?
