Bobbi Brown Day to Night Warm Eyeshadow Palette

Bobbi Brown Day to Night Warm Eyeshadow Palette ($45.00 for 0.30 oz.) contains six shades of eyeshadow designed to take you from day to night with shades on the warmer side of the color spectrum.  Each eyeshadow has 0.05 oz. worth of product, so the palette’s total weight is 0.30 oz. of product.  It does also include a short-handled eyeshadow brush with actual bristles–it’s surprisingly nice, workable, though I don’t think it’ll replace any full-size brushes you may own, but it is one of the better included brushes I have seen this holiday season.

This palette includes: Ivory (creamy white), Oat (soft mocha beige), Espresso (dark chocolate brown), Burnt Sugar (deep golden brown), Velvet Bronze (warm golden bronze), and Black Plum (deep black plum).

I think this palette is a good mix of neutrals that do tend on the warmer side, but the palette is closer to neutral-warm than one with very strong, warm under tones running through it.  These shades are classic–they will serve one well when it comes to creating office-friendly looks or smoking those looks out for something a touch more dramatic in the evening.  I am particularly pleased with the pigmentation level of the palette, as everything was nicely pigmented and five of the six were excellent in pigmentation.  The texture is soft and smooth, with all of the shades applying evenly.  I also appreciate that Bobbi Brown often mixes finishes within her palettes so that users can create a variety of textured looks.

Bobbi Brown’s Eyeshadows retail for $20.00 (for 0.08 oz.), Metallic Eyeshadows retail for $20.00 (for 0.10 oz.), and Shimmer Wash Eyeshadows retail for $20.00 (for 0.08 oz.).   In this palette, you are receiving $37.50 worth of Eyeshadow, $20.00 worth of Metallic Eyeshadow, and $12.50 worth of Shimmer Wash Eyeshadow.   This palette thus contains $70 worth of eyeshadows for $45.  FINALLY! a true value-oriented palette for the holidays!

Happy Sunday & Thank You!

As Sunday wraps up, I just wanted to spend a few moments thanking everyone for their kindness over the past week.  It’s been a rather tough week for me personally, where many things just reached a boiling point, and I really felt like I had too many balls in the air and not enough hands to keep them all there!  The support you have shown me, via the blogging scholarship contest, was absolutely overwhelming and truly humbling.

I think we have definitely given others some food for thought — we are smart, savvy men and women who enjoy our makeup as much as we enjoy our friends, family, careers, education, or whatever pursuits we may have in our individual lives.  Makeup for us is not about masking ourselves but an expression of who we are.  It is only one facet people see, while we are all incredible people with a variety of backgrounds.  At the end of the day, makeup is FUN!

Thank you for your comments and support!  It means so much to me to have it, and it serves as just one more reminder about why I blog, why I enjoy it so much. 🙂
