Still searching for a tiny little gift for a friend, family member, or secret Santa?
Might I suggest the Bobbi Brown Party to Go Palette? Indeed, being as small as a lighter this is a party of makeup to go! Quick look, easy to carry, super small, portable as hell…
I think I loves it.
I have to warn you the colors in this palette are a little dark and dramatic so if you love a smoky look with vampy lips it’s for you! However, if you’re older, have tired eyes, bags, or finer lines you might want to switch it up and try Classic to Go Palette. Same cute style, lighter, friendlier shades.
I think the packaging is what thrills me about this little palette. It’s about the size of a lighter and features three eyeshadows, one lipgloss, and two lip colors. How cute is that? If Bobbi squeezed a blush inside I’d say it was the Swiss Army Knife of my palette life!
This flicks open to reveal a small mirror and the first tier of the palette that includes two Metallic Lip Colors in Pretty Pink(rich berry pink) and Plum (dark, vampy berry plum) plus a mini High Shimmer Lipgloss in Midnight Violet (vampy shade of rich, dark maroon purple).
The second layer contains Rockstar Metallic Eyeshadow (silver), Eggplant Shimmer Wash (royal purple), and Charcoal Eyeshadow (deep black).
The look is a little difficult to pull off as the silver is kinda misplaced here and I had a difficult time figuring out how I wanted to use the shadows but after some thoughts I thought Eggplant worked well on the outer v with a bit of Rockstar on the inner part of my eye and a sweep of Charcoal to line with. In theory they look pretty when paired together in the palette but during application I struggled a little bit. I wish Bobbi would do a few “Get the Look” guides for some of her palettes as I always have a “WWBD” (What would Bobbi do?) moment when I’m struggling over one of her palettes. How would she apply it? How would she work it on a model?
The formulas on the shadow is a tad difficult to blend as well. They aren’t mattes (outside of Charcoal) but they had the texture of one for some reason so again I struggled with application. The lip colors are a tad dry as well so do pair up with the Shimmer Gloss for a bit of moisture.
Overall, the Party to Go Palette is a cute little gift or stocking stuffer but it does have a few issues with application and formula for me. Given the chance I’d buy several of them if Bobbi released various shades as I think the actual packaging is darling and so travel friendly however next time around I’d like to see lighter shades and a better formula.
Love ya Bobbi but this one needed a little extra work from me to get into place correctly. Any tips for a poor Muse?
Did anyone purchase any of these little Holiday palettes?
