The Earth Metal Palette is $60, and includes six eyeshadows, four creamy lip colors, and small eyeshadow and lip brushes. I think if you’re already a BB fan and the colors appeal to you, you’ll love this palette. It’s a little smaller than I expected (which is why I included the picture of the display unit), but whoever’s engineering Bobbi’s compacts right now is doing a terrific job. The palette unfolds in the normal way, then there’s a second “lid” over the shadows, which opens to reveal a mirror.
Autumn (Shimmer Wash) is a greeny-golden leafy brown. The rest of the shadows are Metallics. Earth Metal is purply; Zinc is grey-brown with a touch of purple, Black Spruce is very blackened green; Sunset Gold is golden; Antique Gold is bronze. The colors are lovely, but I still find Bobbi shadows to be a little chalky compared to other brands.
The creamy lip colors are all very pretty, and generally lighter than they might look in the pan. Rose Garden and Barefoot Shimmer have a little sparkle to them.
Expect more swatches from Bobbi’s holiday collection over the next few weeks — but if you want an at-a-glance guide of what’s to come, check out the Bobbi Brown Holiday Collection sneak peek.
