The Sand Eye Palette’s are inspired by a sandy beach and feature a range of neutral eye shadows come in metallic, shimmer, sparkle, and matte finishes.
I think we can all agree that Bobbi’s latest eyeshadow palettes have been very sheer lately but the Sand Eyeshadow Palette does please with both a mix of pigmented and sheerer shades!
The matte shades do fall into the sheerer shade category and one or two have a dense texture but they apply quite nicely. I was worried they’d be dry and chalky but they blend out quite well. Blazing Star Sparkle is also quite sheer and works best applied on top of some of the matte shades as on its own it’s merely shimmer versus any real color pay off.
I had a little but of fall out with Gold Sparkle and the shade was a bit flaky in texture but it’s really quite stunning if you can forgive its quirks.
The other shades were all wonderful in texture and color pay off. I think Golden Copper Metallic which is a golden brown particularly stands out as a great shade as its smooth, creamy, and has excellent pigmentation.
The palette does feature a mismatch of textures, finishes, and formulas so there isn’t any one way to describe all the colors as they each have their own personality. Together I think they create some rather stunning eye looks!
Overall, if you’re a Bobbi fan I’m positive the Bobbi Brown Sand Eyeshadow Palette is a palette that will likely capture your heart! Just keep in mind this does contain quite a healthy dose of shimmer and the formulas aren’t always consistent but on a whole the palette is what I love about Bobbi Brown makeup so much! This brings back the quality I know from the brand!
