The Party Collection seems to have been especially designed for anyone who said all BB products look the same. It includes 6 wild-and-crazy eyeshadow colors, sold individually for $20, and 6 glitter lip gloss shades, each $19. Thanks to Bobbi’s (recently revamped) paletting system, each of these items comes in a holder (think of it as a 1-pan palette), but the pan pops out and can be placed into a larger empty palette. Your BB counter has 3-pan, 4-pan, and 6-pan empty palettes — each $10. Laura Mercier’s and Bobbi Brown’s pans and palettes and not compatible.
In what I consider a total breakthrough in palette technology, each of the glosses comes with a clear, flip-top lid, which (1) keeps you from accidentally sticking your finger in it, and (2) will probably help keep eyeshadow powder out of the gloss — genius! All the glosses could be applied sheerly; I swatched heavily to best show color.
