• Bobbi Brown Bronze Tortoise Shell Palette

    Bobbi Brown has long been one of those beauty brands that I have been dying to try out but have been too frightened by the pricing of products.  As part of the Beauty Hamper I won through Beauty Bulletin, I received a Bobbi Brown Bronze Tortoise Shell EyePalette and I cannot describe how happy and excited I was to get to finally try out a Bobbi Brown product.  Opening the hamper and seeing this palette made me feel like I had received an early birthday present.  

    The tortoise shell collection is part of the Bobbi Brown Fall 2011 (Available in Sand and Bronze) and is perfect now that Autumn has crept up on South Africa.

    The compact has a brown tortoise shell like design to it that opens to reveal 2 levels of eye shadows and a great sized mirror.  The construction of the overall compact is sturdy and one does not have to worry about the little pull out tray falling out of the palette (it stands up well to every day use without bending or buckling).

    The palette is made up of 8 eye shadows in various shades of browns, gold and bronze colours that are incredibly versatile and perfect for creating a lot of different day and evening looks.  The top half of the palette has lighter day time colours made up of Banana; Gold Nugget; Olive and Bronze.  The bottom pull out tray houses the darker shades that have some shimmer to them for a more dramatic look.  These colours are called Tiger's Eye; Espresso; Copper Cocoa and Amber.  My favourite of these is the Gold nugget and Amber colours.  These are beautiful shimmery bronze and gold colours that highlight the corner of your eyes and tops of your brown bones perfectly.

    The pigment of all shadows is such that one can easily control the intensity of the colour by layering the eye shadow.  Not much blending is needed to create a beautiful even look.  Except for the Banana and Espresso colours, the palette is made up of shimmer eye shadows and all the colours work beautifully together.

    The good:
    •         Long lasting and Great quality
    •         Versatile palette great for day and evening looks.

    The bad:
    •         I honestly can’t single out anything bad about this product.
    Bobbi Brown is available in selected Edgars and Stuttafords stores.  The palette retails for around R650.  To find a stockist near you, you can visit the Bobbi Brown website for more information.
