Bobbi Brown’s Lip & Eye Palette ($60.00) is a limited edition set of four lip colors and four eyeshadows for the holiday season. When you first open the palette, it reveals four lip colors (Berry Mauve, Pink Sequin, Dusty Mauve, and Ruby). The eyeshadows slide out from a drawer beneath them. You will find metallic eyeshadows in Champagne Quartz, Gold Dust, Golden Bronze, and Galaxy. Enclosed in the palette are a mini eyeshadow brush and a mini lip brush with a cap.

Being known for natural and subtle shades, this palette follows the same philosophy. The metallic shadows are soft with hints of color and lots of metallic sheen, which helps add some pop and sizzle to them. The lip colors are sheer, creamy, and inherently glossy. Berry mauve was my favorite shade, because I found it to be a light plum-mauve lip on me–just a shade or two deeper than my normal pout (and pinker).

Are you a Bobbi Brown palette fan? How this one strike you?

    I will pass on this one. I don’t like lip palettes, I have shimmering nudes which I love, and stonewashed nudes. Definetly do not need more nudes of same type.

    I wouldnt waste my money on them either. the lip shades barely show up when you swatched.
    To me, the price is to high to not get great results.

    Thank you for the swatches !

    I think this palette is very pretty, but am disappointed at how sheer the lip colors are. I will probably be passing on this due to budget constraints. :(

    I generally don’t like palettes as a whole (unless they’re “build-your-own”, like most of MAC), so I’m definitely passing on this.

    Not much of a lip palette girl either, but the shadows do look gorgeous.

    I love Bobbi Brown palettes, but this one doesn’t appeal to me…I liked last years Bestsellers Palette a lot more!

    These shadows are powder, right? They are so pretty!

    I really like this one, especially the eyeshadows, but also quite like it that the lipsticks are quite sheer, I don’t like dark lips. Will have to think about it as
