Bobbi Brown x L’Wren Scott Amnesia Rose Palette

Bobbi Brown x L’Wren Scott Amnesia Rose Palette ($68.00 for TBA oz.) features six eyeshadows, one blush, and one Pot Rouge (which can be used on cheeks/lips). I’ve only seen it available online at Barneys, but it will be releasing in full at other retailers (see official information here) in February. At a glance, it might seem like a bolder offering from Bobbi Brown, and to an extent, there’s some brightness and color that is unexpected, but the textures ensure that they’re sheerer, softer hues–some by design, others the result of more powdery consistencies. Ultra Violet is supposed to be sheer, but one of the issues I had with it is that it doesn’t apply evenly, so it’s not a sheer, even layer of color. I thought the matte shades tended to be quite powdery, though they blended easily on the lid, they also would sheer away and looked faded before the eight-hour mark. If you pat the shades on enough, just lightly blend along the edges, and do major clean-up after application, you can achieve fairly close-to-pan color. You could also use a white eyeshadow base, which would improve the adhesion and vibrancy of the sheerer shades in this palette.

Amnesia Rose is a muted, rosy plum with a matte finish and subtle warm undertones. It seemed like it would have good color payoff, because the texture was incredibly soft and silky, but it was fairly powdery, so while some of it adhered to the skin, it was prone to dusting and sheering away. Urban Decay Nooner (P, $18.00) is darker. LORAC Mauve (P) is slightly cooler-toned. Chanel Hasard (99) (P, $28.50) is a couple of shades darker. Illamasqua Forgiveness (LE) is darker. Guerlain Boulevard du Montparnasse #5 (LE) is purpler. See comparison swatches.

Silver Lilac is a cool-toned, white-lavender with a sparkly finish. It is a Sparkle Eye Shadow, which are sheerer, glittery shades. It looks a lot more lavender in the pan, but when swatched, it’s a lot whiter. I had just a little fall out with this shade, but it’s something that works better on its own as a wash of sparkle or patted over a more opaque eyeshadow as a layering product. Dior Rosee (141) (LE, $30.00) is more lavender. Fyrinnae Unicorn (P, $8.25) is more iridescent, less glittery. MAC Angelic (P, $21.00) is whiter. MAC Triple Impact (LE, $19.50) is less glittery, more iridescent. MAC Light Violet (LE, $32.50) is more lavender, darker. See comparison swatches.

Pink Lilac is a cool-toned, pink-tinged white with a silvery sparkle finish. It looks very much like Silver Lilac, which is only a bit more sparkly and less silvery. I had just a bit of fall out when I wore this shade, and these are designed to be less pigmented, but it’s a shame they aren’t at least more true-to-color (to how they look in the pan). Marc Jacobs Beauty Stagelight (302) (LE, $32.00) is more glittery. MAC Winterscape (LE, $15.00) is similar. MAC Angelic (P, $21.00) is whiter. See comparison swatches.

Sand Pink is a slightly muted, dusty rose with a matte finish. It had good color payoff, and the texture was very soft and silky. It blended fairly easily on the skin, though it is not the most effortless blush to apply. The color wore well for eight hours before it started to fade. This shade is part of the permanent range. NARS Oasis (P, $29.00) is shimmery, warmer. NARS Dolce Vita (P, $29.00) is redder, deeper. MAC Mocha (P, $21.00) is brighter, less muted. See comparison swatches.

Desert Rose is a soft, medium rosy pink with a satin finish. It’s lightly creamy, blends nicely on the skin, and is a little tacky on the skin for about forty minutes. It wears well for seven hours before starting to become patchy and fade. As a lip color, it lasts three hours. It’s the only cream product in the palette, and I wish it was a powder, because it collects powdery so easily! Bobbi Brown Summer Pink (LE, $26.00) is warmer. Chanel Rose Initiale (P, $43.00) is powder, pinker. See comparison swatches.

Iron is a medium-dark gray with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had so-so color payoff, and the texture was incredibly soft but powdery, which is why it tended to sheer out when applied. bareMinerals Velvet Charcoal (P, $14.00) is similar. Guerlain Crazy Paris #5 (LE) is slightly darker. MAC Howzat (LE, $15.00) is not quite as matte. See comparison swatches.

Ultra Violet is a brightened, fuchsia purple with a faint pink sparkle. It’s part of the “Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow” family, which is described as a “sheer, lightly pearlized shadow.” True to form, it’s semi-sheer with slight sparkle, and the texture, while soft, was powdery. Too Faced Ooh la Orchid (LE) is darker. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Tease #6 (P) is purpler. NARS Fashion Rebel #2 (LE, $24.00) is purpler. bareMinerals Statement (LE) is brighter. See comparison swatches.

Mulberry is a cool-toned, dusty, medium-dark purple with a matte finish. In one sense, it’s very pigmented, and in another, it’s just so-so. The texture is so soft but very powdery–just purple powder everywhere–and some of it sticks, some of it dusts away. NARS Demon Lover #2 (P, $24.00) is much darker. Inglot #386 (P, $6.00) is brighter. See comparison swatches.
