Bobbi Brown Peace Love Beach Eye Shadow Trio
Bobbi Brown’s Peace, Love, Beach makeup collection for Fall 2017 is inspired by ‘surf, sand and sun’ and takes a cue from the coast. The concept which provides inspiration for this collection initially seems more appropriate for a Summer makeup collection, but the mix of shades comprising the collection are wonderfully wearable for any time of the year.
I tried the limited edition Eye Shadow Trio in the Love variant - my personal favourite in terms of shades included. Driftwood is a mid brown shade with a metallic finish, Oyster is a warm, silvery sparkle eyeshadow, and Sandy is a goldish light brown shade with a shimmer wash finish. The three shades compliment each other well and can be used singularly or combined for a three-point, softly defined smoky eye look, with Sandy applied as a base, Oyster as an inner highlight and Driftwood on the outer corners of the eyes.
In terms of quality and performance, all three types of eyeshadows included have a long wear time, lasting comfortably for several hours before showing any sign of fading. Although, as with all eyeshadows, the appearance and wear-time is further improved if worn on top of an eyeshadow primer. Each shade is blendable and buildable, but not much is needed for a full level of coverage.
The exterior of the eyeshadow palette is inspired by the beach, with a fabric material instead of a black, glossy finish that is standard from the brand. This makes this eyeshadow palette one of the most distinctive that I have seen, in terms of packaging, from this brand and indeed from several others too. The palette comes in the form of a mirrored compact that has a durable, magnetic clasp closure. Overall, this is an essential eyeshadow palette that is refreshingly wearable and one that adds a bit of easy, sophisticated sparkle to your makeup wardrobe.
