Bobbi Brown palettes are collected like baseball cards in the beauty junkie world. Owning the chocolate palette is like owning the rookie card of Joe DiMaggio.
The latest palette to hit the counters is the shimmering nudes palette. Neutrals are what Bobbi Brown does best. This time she has added just a sprinkle of shimmer to a few shades. The sprinkle is truly just a pinch of shimmer. It is work and day friendly. The palette features shimmers, washes and matte shadows. The pigment power and texture varies with the shades but this is more of a wash of color. It is foul proof. I tested the palette side by side with the Stonewashed shadows. Shimmering Nudes is warmer with lighter shades. Stonewashed is cooler with more of a theme of taupes and grays.
Nude Beach Metallic Eye shadow is an iridescent champagne shade.
Nude Mist Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow is a pale taupe with low volume pigment power. There is microscopic shimmer that is fairly sparse.
Nude Glow Metallic Eye Shadow is iridescent ginger ale color. As with all Bobbi Brown limited edition palettes, there is a sleeper hit of the shades. Nude Glow and Nude Spice are duking it out for the title.
Nude Spice Metallic Eye Shadow is a Russet potato brown color. This is warm and brassy for a standard brown yet it is not metallic or coin-like.
The exclusive shade is Mica Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow is a repeat from the Stonewashed palette. It is a low volume taupe.
Two Classic Standard Shades
Naked Eye Shadow is a peachy nude. It shows up on my fish belly skin.
Espresso Eye Shadow was in the Stonewashed palette. It is a great ash shade for smoky eyes. It is glides on whipped smooth and is rich in pigment.
This palette is limited edition and is priced at $50. This can be found at your local Bobbi Brown counter.
