Bobbi Brown Eyeshadow, part 2

I still can’t believe it’s taken me so long to “come around” to a brand with which I am so in sync. But maybe if I’d gotten into Bobbi earlier, I wouldn’t have appreciated her as much as I do now.

Bobbi Brown’s eyeshadows are a fabulous palette of wonderful neutrals. The texture is lovely, and they’re $20 each. They’re sold in compacts that are basically “one-pan palettes” — the pan pops out easily so you can make your own 3-, 4-, or 6-pan palettes (and the eyeshadows are the same size as the blushes).

I thought this was a particularly “good” arm, but I especially liked purplish grey-brown Slate, soft beige-pink Shell, cool brown Sable and the slightly lighter, slightly greyer Blonde. I also liked charcoal-y Smoke (more brown than the bluer Steel).  Black Plum was a little chalky, but maybe it’s intended as a liner.

    Thank you!!! I’ve been looking forward to more Bobbi swatches! :D

  • These are gorgeous!
    Indeed, all dark shades in the BB range are meant to be used as liners, as her technique always involves a light wash, a medium lid and a dark liner.

    Slate, Sable, and Cocoa are beautiful.

    Yay – I’m always excited to see swatches of neutrals. I’m really looking forward to seeing you swatch Birch and Navajo – I’ve always wanted to see Navajo compared to Bone!

    Thanks for all your fabulous work Karla!

    Like you Karla, I also feel the love for this brand! And with a CCO close by, I feel less guilt building my collection :)

    Thanks! I love seeing Bobbi Brown swatches— especially since sometimes the colors on her website are a bit “off” sometimes!
