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!

How do you feel about premade palettes or quads? Does it make you rejoice for having already put-together color combinations? Do you get frustrated because they’re altogether in one? Love ‘em or hate ‘em, tell me why!

P.S. – How is your weekend going?  I’m sure some of you are on a long, holiday weekend… lucky for you!
