Bobbi Brown Earth Metal Lip and Eye Palette Review and Swatches
The Brown Bobbi Brown Earth Metal Lip and Eye Palette entered my life a few weeks ago and I’m thinking it’s love. So lush, so pretty, so gorgeous…..my heart is palpating after using it the past few weeks.
Jump for it!
Rant before rave peeps. HATE lippies and shadows in the same palette, big old mess. Although a near perfect design palette wise it still manages to create a big old mess, no likey. The basic design is a flip top which opens to reveal your lip products. Next you’ll notice a little black flap where your mirror would normally be…this flips down to reveal a full size mirror and your shadows. Absolutely ingenious design and quite techy, totally appeals to my geeky good nature. Problem….the mirror actually lays on the shadows a little bit when closed so if you end up with a bit of a kick up of shadow after use ad proceed to close it you’ll end up with shadow all over the mirror which in turn ends up on the lip products as well…not cool. Moral of the story is you have to be very careful during application and you can’t really travel around with it.
Aside from this it’s liquid gold as far as I’m concerned. Such a Bobbi fan girl moment sorry but I love, love her stuff lately. I’ve suddenly matured in my makeup application and bold shades of blue are placed aside for shades such as the one you’ll find in this palette.
You’ll get six eye products, four lip products, and two brushes for $60. Could be a bit much to splurge for some but if you want quality you have to dish the buckage to get it and this in my humblest deserves a haul, particularly if you’re a Bobbi fan.
The shadows are all very wearable, thank you GOD no Espresso…do you so hate that shade or what? It’s in ever palette. Anyway the shadows are all really pretty and have a certain warmth…it’s not very festive for the Holidays..some shades are, some not so much. I get more of a Fall vibe from it but honey I could care less as I’m loving it all the same.
The shadows included are:
- Autumn Shimmer Wash (Light Golden Green)
- Earth Metal Metallic Eye Shadow (Plum)
- Zinc Metallic Eye Shadow (Golden Green)
- Black Spruce Metallic Eye Shadow (Evergreen)
- Sunset Gold Metallic Eye Shadow (Shimmering Gold)
- Antique Gold Metallic Eye Shadow (Golden Bronze)
My loyalties are with the shadows as they are the best part of the palette in my humblest. Although they sport “metallic” in the name and finish I’ve always felt they had a nice sparkle when applied wet or dry.
Although I’m not keen on lip palettes I tend to like Bobbi’s as she has a nice creamy formula that isn’t hard. You know the type that has you digging in it with your lip brush….not the case with these. They are very smooth and creamy with a nicely pigmented formula. The shade selections pair up beautifully well with the shadows.
Lip items included are:
- Paisley Rose Lip Color (Pink Beige)
- Rose Garden Lip Color (Nude Rose)
- Rose Bud (Warm Dusky Rose)
- Barefoot Shimmer Lip Color (Golden Pink)
All in all Bobbi Brown Earth Metal Lip and Eye Palette is a win for me and Muse Approved for purchased.
