Bobbi Brown Greystone Eye Palette
I received the Bobbi Brown Greystone Eye Palette, with was released as part of their Gifting Collection for the festive season. The limited edition palette includes a mini dual ended eyeshadow brush as well as five mostly cool toned eyeshadows in a variety of finishes. This compact black palette with the Bobbi Brown logo etched on top is great for traveling, and if you need to transform your makeup from day to night on the go. The five eyeshadows included are Cream; which is a very pale matte cream coloured eyeshadow, this would be more of a base colour or if you like a matte brown bone highlight. This isn’t the most pigmented and requires a little building up to get full colour pay off. Next is a new shimmer wash eyeshadow called Chiffon; this is a silver toned shimmer eyeshadow, great for adding some sparkle to your look without going full on glitter. The middle shade is called Winter Grey, which is a matte toned beigey grey colour. I’s pigmented and blendable, but may not be the most flattering on deeper darker skin tones, however, it could be a good transition colour.
Next is what I thought would be my favourite shade in the palette, a glitter shade called Caramel Sparkle. In the palette it looks like a gorgeous deep brown glitter shade with lots of sparkle, unfortunately, it is very difficult to get the shadow from palette to lid in the intensity that it looks like in the palette. You have to build it up quite a lot and there is a bit of fallout too, however if you dampen your brush slightly you do get better colour payoff and slightly less fallout too. Last but not least is the darkest shade in the palette, Black Steel, which is a matte grey black shade that is quite pigmented. It’s great for taking looks from day to night and smoking out your eyeshadow looks.
The mini dual ended brush in this palette is great. Usually I ignore brushes included in palettes but this one is actually fit for purpose. If cool tones are not your thing there is also a warmed, toned version of this palette called Rich Caramel, Now, I would love to see that palette in the flesh.
Bobbi Brown's Greystone Eye Palette is priced at £38.00.
