The new Bobbi Brown Atomic Pink Lip & Eye Palette is one of two limited edition palettes that launched for Holiday 2012. These tiny travel palettes feature all the essentials for your eyes and face in a teeny tiny compact that you can easily tote around with you.
There’s just something so sweet about a little palette that contains essentials! I swoon!
On the weekends I sometimes crash at my best friend Jai’s place. Much of his bathroom has become decorated with both our beauty products and I have my own drawer at this point. I was actually busy cleaning that drawer out last week because somehow, someway things I needed for my daily looks were in that drawer and not available at home. My cleaning technique was basically removing the drawer and dumping the entire contents into my tote. I sorted through it later at home and vowed not to leave stuff at his place when I know I NEEDED it at my own house.
That’s why this cute little Bobbi Brown Lip & Eye Palette is the perfect treat for me. I can tuck it easily into my purse, makeup bag, or that drawer. It has all the essentials for creating a smoky eye look on the go!
You get three eyeshadows, two lip colors, and a lipgloss.
- White Eyeshadow (pure matte white)
- Cement Metallic Eyeshadow (shimmering silver nude)
- Eclipse Eyeshadow (blackest black matte) (LE Shade)
- Pale Mauve (pink mauve)
- Atomic Pink (bright fuchsia pink) (LE Shade)
- Pink Cloud Lipgloss (bright pink)
The shadows run a little drier in this palette. I had issues with the mattes, they applied a tad patchy for me however, Cement, the metallic shade, had a lovely easy to blend formula. For a smoother glide dampen a sponge applicator slightly as it eases the matte’s application considerably. The lipsticks are denser so you’ll want to use a lip brush with them (P.S. Bobbi, next year throw a tiny lip brush in and we’ll be prepared to take on the world!).
I think if you generally favor mattes and use them in daily smoky looks you’ll get on famously with this kit however, if you’re like me and prefer a little sparkle it might not be the best solution. Overall, I liked it but I’d switch up the brighter pink lip colors and add in a little more metallic or shimmer to the shadows. In that case, it would be perfect for my weekend travels!
If you travel a lot, stay at your boyfriend’s place, or you just need a tiny touch up palette this might serve you well especially if you already use Bobbi Brown products and want something more portable.
