I'm a sucker for Bobbi Brown palettes. They're insanely overpriced, but SO classy and chic that I simply can't help myself. In spite of my efforts in this post, I caved and purchased the limited-edition Sand Palette from the Bobbi Surf & Sand collection from earlier this summer.
Let's be clear: $78 for a palette is stupid. But I'll be honest about the fact that I would do it again. (I'm hopeless.)
It might be hard to find (I haven't seen it in Sephora stores), so I won't post a full review. It is still available on Sephora's website, though, and I saw it recently at a Holt Renfew counter, so I will say this: In terms of softness and pigmentation, it's definitely the best of the Bobbi Brown palettes I've tried. It's easily my favourite purchase of the summer. So if you're on the fence…hop off and track it down! If you like bronzes and browns, you won't regret it.
Here's a look I did with it recently:
- I smoothed Golden Copper (bottom left), my favourite shade in the palette, all over my lid and into my crease with a MAC 239.
- I placed Saddle (bottom right), the darkest shade in the palette, in my crease with a MAC 217.
- I blended Frappe (second from the bottom on the left) just above my crease with a domed blending brush by Sonia Kashuk (very similar to the MAC 224).
- Using the same blending brush, I added Pale Cream (top left) to my brown bone and blended with Frappe.
- Using my MAC 239, I patted a bit of Bikini Bronze (second from the top on the right) on the centre of my lid.
- Using my MAC 210 brush, I lined my eye with MAC Fludline in Blacktrack and added lots of Maybelline Great Lash and Clinique Lash Power mascara.
What do you think? Have you come up with any fun looks with this palette?
