The Bobbi Brown Telluride Eye Palette ($52) is a new, limited edition eyeshadow palette that launched with the Bobbi Brown Telluride Summer 2015 Collection. The Telluride Eye Palette contains soft pinks, warm roses, rich browns, and dusty shades inspired by the shades of the sunset, as the day turns to dusk!
Let’s take a look!

I LOVE the combination of colors in this palette. These are fantastic transitional shades that work well right now in the Summer but will look even better comes Fall. You get a mix of dusky roses and brownish plums and taupes that work so well together. Too many times I run across palettes that have a mismatch of colors that give me pause as I’m unsure how they’ll work together but this palette has many shades that just compliment each other very, very nicely!
Unfortunately, I thought some of the mattes were a little too dense and dry in this palette which gave them a sheerer appearance (as you can see swatched)! I didn’t have issues with the sparkle or shimmer shades as these are all nice and buttery but the mattes were iffy for me and I’ve experienced far nicer, silkier mattes from brands like Tarte.
If you haven’t experienced Bobbi’s Sparkle Eyeshadows they are a lot like Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadows. They don’t have a ton of color and the texture tends to have a chunkier, flakier consistency like MAC Kitchmas BUT they do leave behind a very lovely sparkle! They are actually one of my favorite sparkle formulas but aren’t a texture loved by everyone. The best shades in the palette were the two shimmers! Both of which were buttery with excellent pigment and an easy to apply formula.
The sparkle shadow does have a fair bit of fall out but the matte and shimmer are fine. I didn’t have creasing issues nor fading with any of the shades but I did feel the mattes applied draggy and looked patchy on my lids if I didn’t use a solid primer or base prior to applying.
I’m a Bobbi Brown fan girl so I tend to overlook the poorer consistency of her eyeshadows at times. The Telluride Eye Palette is beyond no means her worst palette but it could be a lot better especially at this price. I wish the mattes were a touch silkier, I wish wish there were less of them as more shimmers or satin would likely result in a better eye look using these beautiful shades.
The Bobbi Brown Telluride Eye Palette is possibly a no brainer for Bobbi Brown fangirls like me. You’re going to look at and just decide you want it. However, I think the masses will be disappointed with the performance on this one and wonder what exactly it is they spend $52 on. Unfortunately, Bobbi’s formula suffers a little lately and I’m not sure why that is but I have hopes she’ll start producing a better formulated eyeshadow formula in upcoming collections.
