Ahh the Muse has gone so natural and neutral lately hasn’t she? But she can’t help herself when Bobbi Brown keeps introducing awesome palettes! The new Limited Edition Bobbi Brown Lip and Eye Palette contains an array of naturally beautiful shades for creating that perfect party look with a tiny bit of pop and a whole lot of elegance.
The palette contains four Bobbi Brown Creamy Lip Colors and four Bobbi Brown Metallic Eyes Shadows in a slick, black compact. I loved the design of the palette as it has the lip colors on top with a pull out draw housing the shadows so everything is kept nice and tidy. The draw designed to hold the shadows pulls out easily and houses the shadows nice and tight.
The shadows are all gorgeous colors with a nice metallic almost shimmery like finish. The shades are all very use friendly and aren’t in the least bit bold or scary so you’ll be getting a soft, natural look from each shade. I wouldn’t say the shadows are necessarily the same in color but I do feel like you can’t combine them to create different looks. The shadows each have an individual color and combining them does nothing but create muddy shades so I would suggest using each shade individually. The $60 USD price tag may be a bit discouraging when faced with only four looks that can be arranged from the four included colors however I took all this into consideration and still felt like it was well worth the price since the looks you can create are truly lovely.
I was a bit put off by the lip colors as I was expecting the same soft, buttery formula that I was recently treated to when I purchased the Bobbi Brown Pink Satin Collection. However, the formula on these was a bit hard and the colors weren’t too pigmented. They weren’t particularly easy to apply and didn’t feel as soft as the ones I originally tried. I was a bit let down by this but after applying and playing around a bit I was happy with how they looked on so I decided to disregard the crummy formula.
The palette contains a lip brush and a shadow brush. Both of which are mini size and fabulous in my opinion. Be it large or small I’m always very impressed with Bobbi Brown Makeup Brushes. I’m particularly a big fan of her lip brushes! Both brushes make applying everything a snap and it doesn’t take a ton of skill or drama to achieve a soft, flattering, work friendly look using the brushes, shadows, and lip colors!
The shadows included in the palette are:
- Champagne Quartz (Shimmering beige with touches of pink)
- Gold Dust (Shimmering Gold)
- Golden Bronze (Shimmering fleshy peach)
- Galaxy (Shimmering gray with a touch of a black)
The lip colors included in the palette are:
- Berry Mauve (Berry Pink)
- Pink Sequin (Sheer Peach)
- Dusty Mauve (Mauve with a heavy dose of brown)
- Ruby (Off Red almost maroon)
I’ve reviewed the Metallic Eye Shadows prior to this and it deserves to be mentioned again how great the formula is. For one of my looks below I actually decided to apply wet and I have to say I love how it intensifies the color and gives a foil finish when the shadow is applied this way.
I honestly can’t begin to tell you about my lips. All my looks below are created using everything in the palette but I mixed, combined, and cocktailed all the colors together to create the shades hehe so I’m unsure what I’m wearing! I think that mixing them all together kinda creates some rather nice shades rather than wearing them alone.
Gold Dust applied wet
All in all I absolutely loved this palette! It’s not loud or bold or vibrant but it does create some very soft, flattering looks that are ideal for work or a Holiday party! If you’re scared of bolder shades this will be a perfect pick for creating natural, elegant looks for the season! This one gets a big Muse Approval for purchase! Very worth it and a truly great palette, possibly my favorite of all the Bobbi Brown palettes I’ve tried as of late!

Bobbi Brown Corrector Concealer Review
You know Bobbi Brown Glitter Balm failed to excite this Muse but she has absolutely no such feelings about Bobbi Brown Glitter Lip Gloss!
This morning I whipped out my brand new Bobbi Brown Glitter Lip Gloss in Disco Pink and started to boogie down baby!
I’m trying so hard to resist the 20% Off discount
and not get the other shades of this gloss as I loves it lots. Where as the balm had a crummy texture this succeeded in having a fab emollient formula that was slick, glossy, and shimmery! Yay
! It also happens to have wonderful pigmentation and I have no need to use a lipstick or stain prior to use! Slick on and beautiful glossy lips!
Although many of us hate dipping our fingers into pots and such, the Muse’s number one pet peeve there, I try to set aside my dislike and concentrate on the good things that the packaging has to offer like the fact it has a rather awesome dual cover. The compact sports a regular lid and a secondary clear lid to protect the gloss from ending up all over the upper lid, whoa did that make sense? Anyway, I’m sure you got it! Pretty cool right?
The shade I tried out is Disco Pink which by the very way has nothing pink going on with it…holy strange name Batman! But the good news is that I absolutely love the shade as it’s a beautiful brown based peach shade that looks stunning with warm corals, golds, and bronze looks! As I mentioned earlier the formula is quite emollient so the gloss gives your lips a nice slick look with a hint of fine gold shimmer that lends a festive feel to the gloss as it should considering it’s part of the Bobbi Brown Party Collection.
