Project Revamp

If you could revamp Smashbox Cream Liner, what would you change? What would you keep the same? How would you make it an even better product?

Bobbi Brown’s Night Sky Long-Wear Eye Palette ($55.00) is offered as a holiday temptation! This palette includes Rockstar and Ocean long-wear cream shadow as well as Black Ink and Thunder Storm long-wear gel eyeliner. I am a big fan of Bobbi Brown’s long-wear gel eyeliner; I find it’s a bit creamier than most gel liners, but they’re still pigmented enough to give me the darkness I crave.

Rockstar is a silvery shade with a touch of blue undertones, while Ocean is a shimmery midnight blue. Black Ink is pretty much just that – a matte black. Thunder is a dark brownish-gray color. These colors go on just the way they appear, which is great, because I love it when products are true-to-color! I haven’t yet tried out the cream shadows to see how they wear, and I imagine I’ll more likely wear them as liner than as shadows ;)

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?
