The collection includes a zippered “Denim & Rose” palette, three new click-pen, brush-tip “Face Highlighters,” a sparkle eyeshadow, a gel eyeliner, a shimmer lipgloss, a new shade of Extreme Party mascara, and a brush set. Everything is limited edition.
The palette is $60. It includes four eyeshadows: Navajo (a permanent shade) and Gray Denim (new to this palette) are Bobbi’s “regular,” matte eyeshadow formula. Â When I swatched Pink Granite (Sparkle eyeshadow) I thought I’d seen it before… but my mind was playing tricks on me. The grey-pink shade is only similar to Moonlight in the Holiday 2009 Chrome Palette. Â Dark Rinse (Shimmerwash eyeshadow) is a black-blue with sparkle.
Pink Rose blush (which I swatched at light-to-medium intensity) is a pretty mauvey pink.
And then the lip colors! Disregard the names, Cool Rose (Creamy Lip Color) is a pretty, warm pink with small, subtle sparkles. The two lipglosses, Iced Lilac and Hot Rose are really liquid, like someone squeezed lipgloss into a square pan and troweled it flat and even. Iced Lilac is not lilac; it’s a clear gloss with delicate silver sparkles (like a Bobbi Brown version of MAC’s Rock Out). Hot Rose could be applied more sheerly than I swatched it here. Indie Rose is a beautiful deep raspberry, and the model in the promo pic is purportedly wearing Indie Rose + Hot Rose. The lip colors were my favorite thing about the palette, and I generally hate lip stuff in palettes.
The “loose” items include the new Denim (Sparkle) eyeshadow — I assume this is regularly priced at $20. The shadow reminded me of the Metallic Cream Eyeshadows in Bobbi’s Beach collection: the color was complex (greyed blue with gold sparkle), but a lot of sparkle in not much pigment.
Denim Ink gel eyeliner is deep, sparkly, dark-wash denim. Bobbi recently discontinued her blue gel eyeliners (Cobalt, Sapphire, and Indigo), so it’s nice to see one sneaking back in. Denim is closest to Sapphire, but the colors aren’t identical. I assume Denim Ink is regular priced at $21.
There’s a Shimmer Lipgloss (with a brush wand): Raspberry. It’s rose with a fine silver shimmer. And there’s a limited edition shade of Extreme Party Mascara: Denim (of course). Lip glosses are regularly $20; Extreme Party Mascara is regularly $22.
The Face Highlighters are new ($32 each). They’re click pens with brush tips. Bronze is surprisingly dark. Opal is white with pink opalescence. It’s quite sheer; definitely a highlighter. Rose is actually more of a lilac. You’d probably use this on your cheeks.
Finally, there’s a brush set for $55. It contains a blush brush, an angled shadow brush, a flat, domed synthetic brush labeled eyeliner (but the bristles seem long?), and a lip brush.
