Bobbi Brown Holiday Modern Classic Lip & Eye Palette
October 1, 2010
A few holiday sets are trickling in stores and Bobbi Brown’s first round of holiday palettes are stunning. The one that caught my eye was her new Modern Classic Lip & Eye Palette ($75) which contains 10 different eyeshadows and 4 lip glosses. I found this at Nordstrom but don’t know if other counters have these yet. I assume very soon if you haven’t spotted them recently.
This comes in a similar size to her Chrome Palette from last year, but the colors in this palette are so much better. The shadows are to die for and come in matte, shimmer wash, metallic finishes. They are all soft and easy to blend with excellent pigment. I only wish she would release more singles instead of palettes. The lipglosses are very sheer but will look stunning over other lipsticks.
Regulars/Mattes: Ivory, Birch, Navy Charcoal (although this has slight sparkle), Espresso
Shimmer Washes: Antique Pink, Quarry, Heather Rose
Metallics: Oyster Grey, Taffeta, Gold Thread
The glosses (first three from the left are glitters):
Overall stunning and absolutely gorgeous. The shades were all swatched without any base or moisturizer so you can imagine how much better they will look when used over a proper base. The swatches simply cannot do these justice. Definitely a winner and a must have, even with the high price tag. It’s extremely versatile and you’ll get a lot of different looks using this palette.
The other eyeshadow and lip palettes were also to die for. I’m just waiting for another event/gwp which I believe will happen soon at Neimans.
