I checked out Bobbi Brown’s Pink Raspberry Collection, and I have to say, the palette she put together for the launch is quite nice.  I played with the Pink Raspberry Face Palette; Pink Raspberry and Wild Raspberry lip crayons; and Black Raspberry lip sheer.

Pink Raspberry Face Palette is a palette meant for more subdued looks, because Navajo is a light white-gold shadow with soft shimmer, while Fog is a deeper, smoky charcoal-gray with light shimmer as well.  They both feel more semi-matte to me than anything; they’re definitely not frosty or over-the-top, so they’re perfect for just about anyone.  The Pink Raspberry blush is a bright medium pink that will need a light hand when applying it, because it is easy to go overboard.  I adore both of the lip sheers for their soft, pink-berry hues; knowing that they are meant to be sheer, I was not disappointing with their opacity.  I found that Raspberry was a deeper berry with pink undertones whereas Blue Raspberry was definitely a cooler, sheer pink.

Black Raspberry lip sheer is a berry-brown with more color than the lip sheers included in the palette, which makes it a nice alternative to those with more pigmented lips.  Both Pink Raspberry (warm pink with berry undertones) and Wild Raspberry (gorgeous brighter red-berry) lip crayons felt so glossy and smooth when applied.  They’re kind of like jumbo lip pencils, which means they’re great as liners, glosses, or lipsticks–my kind of tool!

    Thanks for the great reviews! Do you think all of these shades would work for someone with auburn hair and fair/Irish skin? Thanks!

    Thanks so much girls! This is a great palette for us fair skinned girls. I love the Pink Raspberry Lip Crayon too (I think I’m gonna be a big fan of these!) You might also want to try Lancome’s Fever Lipstick in Provovactive. It’s a great shimmery berry. I think their Pixel Pink will also work well. That’s a limited edition by Lancome. Does anyone else hate limited edition items as much as I do?! I swear it just encourages ebay sellers to stock up on them and try to sell them for double a few months down the line! 😉 I love the BB blush in the palette but I’m not a fan of her cream blushes. Paula Dorf has a nice pink cream in Playmate that you could actually wear under the BB powder blush and you can also use Playmate as a lipstick and/or eyeshadow as well. It’s the first Paula Dorf item I’ve purchased. I tried it after reading a review on the QVC beauty forums. :)

    • I’m glad the palette worked out so well for you :)

      We all hate LE products that we’ve come to love, of course. Who wants to pay ridiculous ebay prices?!
