Prior to purchase you’ll have to keep in mind a few things about this palette….
First off it does look quite similar to other palettes Bobbi has done but this is pretty much a selection of shades you likely haven’t seen all in the same location before. Secondly, you have to be willing to work with sheerer shades. There isn’t a ton of pigmentation here! Bobbi created the Rich Chocolate Eye Palette to be wearable and easy to apply. This is a palette that would work great for mature eyes as the colors are very soft and quite sheer. I find the texture on a few shades runs a touch drier but they all blend fairly easily and create very pretty yet basic looks. Don’t expect a ton of pigmentation because that’s not what you’ll get here. I think those with finer lines, puffiness, or aging issues under their eyes will appreciate how easy to use this palette and how flattering it is. It won’t accentuate under eye issues and creates very soft, delicate looks.
I admit I liked it.
I have puffiness, I have drier eyes, and I have finer lines and I felt the shades create very pretty, natural nude eye looks. There isn’t pigment here so drama isn’t on the menu. I think the first thing people will think when they see my swatches or even swatches from other bloggers will be that the palette is uneventful. And perhaps that’s true…but if your look is softer I’m positive the Rich Chocolate Eye Palette will agree with you.
This palette is only available for a limited time so if you want it best head to your local Bobbi counter or bobbibrown.com and get it now.
