Bobbi Brown Chrome Eyeshadow: Gold, Silver, Pewter

Bobbi Brown Chrome Eyeshadow ($22.00 for 0.1 oz.) are new and limited edition from Bobbi Brown’s Holiday Collection for the holiday season.

These are stunning metallic finish eyeshadows — ultra pigmented, feel like butter, and blend easily. There are three shades available: Gold, which is a darker bronzy-gold; Silver, which is a bright metallic silver-gray; and Pewter, which is a taupe-brown gold with a silver-gold sheen. All three are equally amazing, just from the first use. They’re so soft, and each shade packs plenty of color. I think I may have to get a back-up of Pewter, because it’s just such an excellent color in a stellar formula. (I’m totally planning to use Pewter as a one-swipe-and-you’re-done shade!)

Bottom Line: Considering the size of the shadow (they’re cheaper than MAC, by the ounce!), the sleek packaging of Bobbi Brown (though it does hold fingerprints), and the amazing quality of these shadows… I am in love! So smooth, so rich in color, and I’m all over anything metallic. Perfect shades for holiday, too!

    Gorgeous colours!

  2. Almost black.

    They look lovely but the problem is that *every* single brand has these shades :))) They+re ALL so repeating themselves 😀

  3. I think this review is spot on! The shadows are really great – I wasn’t going to get them, but after I swatched them, there was no contest. I got a 3-pan holder for them too. So beautiful :-) If you like metalics – these are the best.

  4. i’m liking pewter xD

  5. Doreen

    Wow! Pewter looks super gorgeous! I will definitely get this next time I’m near the Bobbi Brown counter…which may not be soon, but I will get it sometime before it disappears.

  6. Vern

    I usually look at your swatches first and thought pewter was gorgeous and a great color alone. I might have to get two also once I check it out.

  7. I love the Silver and Gold shades, they are usually the colors I use in makeup.

  8. amy

    My favourite colour is Chrome from this palette.

  9. Jamie

    I agree with the comments above, pewter looks great!

    I have a question though –> How does the Gold compare to UD’s Baked (which I own, and like)?


  10. Pewter, come to mama! lol
    pewter looks gorgeous!

  11. Jessie

    Does pewter look at all like MAC Smoke and Diamonds?

  12. Kate M.

    Pewter does look gorgeous…slightly cooler than my all time favorite, MAC Patina!

  13. Missy

    I want the pewter eyeshadow asap its so pretty and original=)

  14. Rae

    Ooh! Pewter looks gorgeous, but Silver is the one that really takes the cake in my opinion. I’m a sucker for a good silver shadow that doesn’t lean green-blue-ish!

  15. god, pewter is killing me. i just bought a benefit cream shadow in skinny jeans that looked like that in the store but doesn’t last like that on your eyes…now i’m wondering if bobbi brown could do it better…dangerous. lol

  16. Fabulous, I like pewter most. But I have so many silvery-taupes!

  17. Ribbons

    I really like the silver, but Im a silverholic so I have too many to warrant buying a new one. Thats the line Ill use when asked but Ill secretly buy this and pretend Ive had it ages … might get the gold and pewter too …

    Do these have a similar consistency to the Benefit Velvet Eyeshadows? Although I cant imagine another e/s being so soft, they remind me of them quite a bit.

  18. Natasha

    Is this available in Canada??? If so, where??

  19. Scarlett

    how close is pewter to smoke & diamonds?

  20. cloudburst

    As soon as I saw this post I went down to my local BB couner & bought all three colours + a backup of Pewter! I agree, these are stunning.

  21. KatoAto

    I just had a shadow-gasm over that Silver

  22. Jodi

    I bought the pewter and loved it so much, I went back and got the silver. Good thing b/c the silver is sold out at my BB counter. The pewter looks amazing over the black greasepaint stick from the MAC Style Black collection!

  23. Teresa

    P.S. Where else can I get Bobbi Brown in Canada? I guess department stores maybe?

  24. Jenny

    Bought pewter in Holt Renfrew. Love it so much. Spreads like butter, not that I didn’t expect it to after reading your review. Seriously considering going back for silver…

    • Ohh, I’m so happy you love it, Jenny! Sometimes I get nervous when I really, really love something, because I want it to work for everyone else but I get nervous it won’t!
