40 Days and 40 Nights of Beauty Cult Classics
Day 34, Bobbi Brown's Chocolate Palette
"If you are not feeling well, if you have not slept, chocolate will revive you. But you have no chocolate! I think of that again and again! My dear, how will you ever manage?" - Marquise de Sévigné
The Bobbi Brown Chocolate Eye Palette was my first dip into the BB world. I was going through a heavy MAC and Nars phase.
I always skipped my local Bobbi Brown counter because it looked boring and safe. I was not ready for the life of neutrals.
I wanted to be a Nars girl forever.
My friend Shawn was the one that encouraged me to cave on the Chocolate Palette.
He felt that it would be a great addition to my shadow collection since I did not own one brown shade.
The palette contains workhorse shades called Bone, Caramel Toffee Shimmer Wash, Frappe, Champagne Truffle Shimmer Wash, Cacao Shimmer Wash, Stone and Chocolate. I hit pan with Bone and Cacao Shimmer Wash.
This small step into browns created a lemming monster.
Today I have a huge drawer filled with neutrals.
That is what I feel about Bobbi Brown and brown eyeshadows. You resist them...but they managed to win your heart in the end.
Let me know what you think of the palette in the comments.
