Bobbi Brown's Brights Palette: A Tiny Package
Dr Evil: Mini Me, if I ever lost you I don't know what I would do. [pauses]
I'd probably move on, get another clone but there would be a 15 minute period there where I would just be inconsolable
(Quote from Austin Powders The Spy That Shagged Me)
I was dazzled by the first images of the new Bobbi Brown palette that appeared on many beauty blogs. What was not to love about a palette filled with bright shades instead of shimmery nudes or rich chocolates?
I appreciated the new direction. It was fun and light hearted.
So imagine my surprise when I discovered that the shadows were actually the size of a standard non-nut filled M&M candy. I should have read the fine print. This whole "Mini Me" size did not compute. Luckily, I have a patient and sane Bobbi Brown SA who rationally pointed out that no one really needs normal sized bright turquoise eyeshadow. This palette was created for the neutral shadow kind of girl who wants to occasionally have fun with some bright shades. The shades are a hodge podge of warm yellows to cool toned blues. The pigment power is light and safe. It creates a very subtle wash over the lid.
The palette was inspired by the "fun kit" that Ms Brown uses for fashion week. The colors are new and exclusive to this limited edition palette. You know the drill of course. The price is $70 and is currently available at your local Bobbi Brown counter or www.bobbibrown.com
