Bobbi Brown Lilac Rose Eye Palette (Limited Edition): Review

Sometimes I feel like I’ve reached an age where wearing too much purple and pink, while cute, is a little too cute for me. If you have the same thought as I do, hey, meet this upcoming collection from Bobbi Brown.

The Bobbi Brown soon-to-launch limited edition Lilac Rose Collection carries the Lilac Rose Eye Palette, which is the obvious star in this collection. It has eight gorgeous colours, intelligently packaged in such a way that the palette remains compact (four colours are “hidden” in a drawer-like feature).

The top layer feature dusty pinks and an ivory highlighting shade, while the lower layer are made up of brown shades. All of them are super flattering and I can imagine them looking good on almost any skin tone.

The colours aren’t the most saturated, but they’re great at bringing a glow to the complexion. The eight shades, while looking good even when used alone, are also complementary to one another, which means you could pretty much do your own mix-and-match without worrying about making a mess. Yes, you can be your own makeup artist!

I’d say that this is a great starter-palette for those who are just beginning to explore the wearing of eyeshadow, or if you’re looking for a great everyday eyeshadow palette that you can wear to work/school and also on your weekend dates.

Here are a few looks I’ve created with the palette. You’d notice that they’re all very natural-looking and subtle. The colours are built to enhance your features instead of hiding them.

  1. Don’t think I’ll be picking up this one! The eyeshadows are not pigmented enough, and I’m not a big fan of pinks and lilacs. I prefer Lancome products. Nice review though!
