Ah I know some of you were curious about the new True Violet Shimmer Wash Eyeshadow that Bobbi released with the Nudes & Neons Collection.
Take a peek let me know whatcha think!
Bobbi’s known for her tame shades of color so True Violet definitely lends a little edge to her eyeshadow collection!
This one is a shimmer wash so it does have subtle shimmer highlights but nothing over the top. Texture is a little drier so it does have the feel of a matte shadow and the finish of one and yes, the application of one. Meaning it can go patchy if you aren’t careful so a sponge applicator is always a great tool for building color slowly for a smoother finish.
The color itself is a bit daring for Bobbi Brown considering her track record with softer shades of color plus hey Bobbi is all about nude. That in itself makes True Violet a pretty unique find.
The color is a true violet with just the right amount of purple in the mix to create a vibrant eye look. I find it pairs up very well with it all over the lid, blended into the crease, and and a bit of black liner on the waterline for a bit of a bold finish.
True Violet deserves a swatch if you’re a Bobbi fan as the shade proves unique to her catalog and in general as there isn’t a ton of violets out there in my opinion, purple yes, lilac sure, but not a variety of violets.
If she’s calling your name she’s available now at Bobbi Brown counters or online at bobbibrown.com
