Bobbi Brown Earth Metal Palette

Bobbi Brown, holiday, displayHoliday items have begun trickling in — I spotted an incomplete Bobbi holiday display this weekend, and took the opportunity to swatch the highly anticipated Earth Metal Palette.

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.

    >Argh… WHY do these have to be metallic colors?! I'd snap this up in a minute if they were all the shimmer washes like Autumn. I'd buy that one if it was offered separately, but I didn't see it on the bb website… It's lovely, but too…..metallic for me.. WAH! Awesome swatches as usual Karla!

    >Looks awesome, but I have a few Bobbi palettes and I *never* reach for them. Is that a L'Oreal HiP lip pot to the left of the BB display unit?? What's that doing there??

    >Your swatches turned out a LOT better than mine, esp. the lip colors. I'm really disappointed with this one, I'm sending mine back to BB.
