Bobbi Brown Aquamarine Palette

Bobbi Brown Color Strips Collection:  Aquamarine Palette

Bobbi Brown Aquamarine Palette ($60.00) includes five eyeshadow shades (Lightening , Aquamarine, Storm, Ivory, and Grey Sky) and three pot rouge shades (Sand Pink, Pale Pink, Powder Pink). This is the third palette from Bobbi Brown’s Color Strips Collection, which also featured Bonfire and Orchid.

  • Ivory is a cool-toned white beige with a matte finish.
  • Lightning (Sparkle) is a shimmering softened gray with silver shimmer.
  • Aquamarine (Metallic) is a muted sky blue with a frosty sheen and shimmer.
  • Grey Sky is a medium gray with almost a brownish-taupe cast with a matte finish
  • Storm is a deepened blue-black with a matte finish.

The Aquamarine Palette is more on the cool-toned side, so it’s definitely more suitable for those with cooler undertones. However, it’s not unwearable for those with warmer skin tones, but you’ll want to mix and match with some slightly warmer hues just to bring everything together. What I really like about this palette, though, is that the shades work really well together, like in the Bonfire Palette.

For a review of the Pot Rouges, head on over to my Orchid Palette review, which includes the same shades of Pot Rouges. The packaging remains the same as the other two palette variations–sleek Bobbi Brown case that opens up with plastic “windows” that keep out dirt and dust from the products (which is really something you don’t see often and much appreciated).

    Aww.. how painful it is to see the crack of that beautiful eyeshadow :(

  2. That’s too much 80es like, don’t like it.

  3. Aquamarine is my type of color. And Lightening looks quite pretty too. The other 3 with matte finish are just OK, IMO. Guess will give it a pass. Wonder if they have Aquamarine as a single?

    I keep looking at this and thinking I want it (I want it, I want it!) but I think I’ll save my $60. If BB released Aquamarine in her wonderful cream shadow formula, I’d be ALL over it.

    This one didn’t grab my attention like the Bonfire palette. I really wish they would release the 4th palette, Bobbi Brown is only selling the 4th one called Petal in Asia I think. Now thats the one I really want.

    The eyeshadow colors look lovely, but I’ve been told (by a complete stranger) that greys are not for me.

    Now this is a color strip I can get excited about!

    I am in love with the e/s palette…the colors are perfect! So pretty…

  9. The colours are pretty but pretty common with other brands too !

    I just bought this for myself and I love it. I have light olive skin; the bonfire color strip was made for me, however, my heart was set on the aquamarine and I’m so happy I got it. I love the way it looks on me.

    didn’t like it… not running to check it…
