Bobbi Brown Bobbi & Katie Palette Review & Swatches
Bobbi Brown and Katie Holmes collaborated and created the Bobbi & Katie Palette ($68) together earlier this Fall. As Bobbi’s first ever spokes model, Katie has made quite an impression in some of the most recent promotional images for collections that have launched the past few months. And with the Bobbi & Katie Palette we get more of what Katie is known for, the girl next door look! Fresh burst of pinks, natural shades of shadow, and colors that are perfect for a natural, pretty look await you in this palette.
Take a look!
The Bobbi & Katie Palette is a cute book shaped palette that’s home to eight eyeshadows, an eye pencil, and two Pot Rouge shades. It also includes a generously sized mirror inside with Bobbi and Katie’s name printed on it.

Although I prefer peach on my cheeks lately and my eyes nude and natural with golds or browns I must admit pink has always been a color I’ve pulled off very well. This has some beautifully crisp, cool shades of pinks for eyes, lips, and cheeks. It’s not a color palette everyone will love and even the formula, which runs sheerer on many of the shadows, isn’t something everyone will love either. I, however, adore it. It’s the type of no nonsense palette that makes makeup application easy and breezy. You can put together a look in seconds and its makeup that makes itself known but also looks very natural as if you’re not really wearing much at all!
The shadows do run sheerer here but all of them have a very soft, silky texture that apply and blend out easily while wearing long and strong on eyes. The Chocolate Eyeliner has a soft, creamy texture that glides onto my lash line easily and smudges out to a nice smokiness should I desire. The pot rouges are creamy and easy to use on either face (even eyes if you want) and lips! These have a very long, strong hold for all day wear. Pot Rouge has always been a fav product of mine due to the long wear and these do not disappoint.

The Bobbi Brown Bobbi & Katie Palette brings everything together I love about simplicity in my beauty. This is an easy to use palette that creates fresh, natural looks in seconds. I absolutely adored it!
Well worth a pick up in my humblest especially if you love soft, natural shades of pinks!
