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.
The Bobbi Brown Lilac Rose Eye Palette retails at S$99 from 1 March 2013.
