Peace

Bobbi Brown Peace Eye Shadow Trio ($40.00 for 0.25 oz.) includes a light aqua, silvery green, and pale blue. There are two Sparkle eyeshadows (first and third) and one Shimmer Wash eyeshadow (second). The Sparkle Eye Shadow finish is supposed to be a “featherweight” formula with “shimmering pearls and fine sparkle.” The Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow finish is described as a “sheer wash of shimmer.” I don’t think this trio is worth even considering unless you’re someone who loves the brand’s Sparkle formula and likes them sheerer. This trio was painful to wear – my eye was watering nonstop with how much fallout there was as soon as the products were applied. The three shades came together poorly, as they were quite light and offered no contrast and little coverage.

Seafoam

Seafoam is a pale aqua with subtle, warm undertones and a sparkling finish. It had semi-sheer coverage, which was not buildable, and a lot of sparkle. The texture felt slightly emollient to the touch, but it had very little hold on its own and had fallout throughout the day. There was almost no color left after six hours of wear.

Sea Glass

Sea Glass is a pale, silvery pewter with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation–not at all sheer was the finish was described–that was soft, smooth, and blendable on the lid. It wore well for six and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

Surf

Surf is a pale, silvery blue with cool undertones and a sparkling finish. It had sheer coverage with little binder, so the sparkles did not stay in position and fell during application and continuously throughout the time I wore it. There were only a few stray sparkles remaining after a mere four hours of wear.

Honestly, I am not surprised. Most of Bobbi’s eyeshadows (pressed) are super sheer and for that price, I would want something that has a decent depth of color and staying power. This sounds like something someone would wear when they want to just half attempt a look for the day.

It was interesting – the other two duos were more pigmented (even the sparkle shades!) – and this was the last one I swatched, so I ended up a little surprised.

Good grief! This could have been so much better if someone had tested it before they released it! Wondering if the others were so bad.

Yikes! Thanks for “taking one for the team!” I stopped buying BB eyeshadows after the last several I had bought some time ago were just awful. I was curious about this trio though since I like the shades…too bad.

Same here, Michele! I gave up entirely on the eyeshadow palettes – they were either redundant year after year or middling in quality.

These weren’t good the first time around either. I think all of them were in these little longer than wide linear style palettes, where there is no divider between colors. They might be from the aughts. Thank god they were from CCO. But they are so unfavored that I cannot immediately lay my hands on them. Always a sign. BB always looks good at CCO, but even for sheer, they do not work well. The only BB I have bought in a decade is Bond, and only because of T blog. Otherwise, way off the radar. Guess I know better.

I decided to give Bobbi Brown another try with the summer collection, but other than the powder blushes, it’s been a pretty big miss for me. The other two trios were okay but dupable enough that they weren’t overly impressive either.

Oh, that’s not good. It seems like the products the company is putting out aren’t really cutting it since Bobbi left the company…. I otherwise like their products and philosophy but that won’t change quality.

I think it is too soon to tell – a lot of brands work at least a year, if not two years, in advance for planning collections and the like! 🙂

Hmmm, maybe I’ll stop whining about how Bobbi Brown keeps issuing the same 50 shades of brown shadow, otherwise we’ll get more disasters like this one. Can’t believe they have the nerve to actually sell this, much less charge $40 for it. The swatches look like little girls’ play makeup from the dollar store 🙁 I was hoping that with the change in leadership, they would re-formulate their shadows, but nope

This looks like the Surf and Sand collection that came out about 4 years ago and seems to be similarly awful. I think I paid $60 for a palette that I ended up throwing away because I wasn’t comfortable returning makeup back then. Prior to that I’d been a minimal makeup user but what I did buy was BB because it was consistently good. I love the luxe lipsticks in the gold packaging but otherwise feel like the line has migrated too much from its original concept. Bummer.

I love the Luxe lip colors, too! I think Bobbi Brown makes great lip products along with base products (if you are yellower in tone).

This looks like a very poorly done 60’s themed palette. Just mind boggling that BB couldn’t have just time traveled back 5 decades and copied, say, Revlon’s China Blue and other likewise frosty pastels from that era!

My first thought when I saw this palette was late 60’s/early 70’s Revlon & Aziza trios & quads too!

My experience with Bobbi Brown eyeshadows was very hit or miss and stopped purchasing the brand’s eyeshadows entirely as a result, so I don’t think it’s a result of her stepping down (I also think we won’t see the impact for another year) – that’s just based on my experience, though.

Eh! Maybe this is why Bobbie Brown left Bobbie Brown Cosmetics. I thought it would take a lot for someone to leave their own brand but so far, I don’t like anything that they have come out with.

I haven’t bought that much from Bobbi Brown over the last few years… as a result of being burned like this on a lot of past Bobbi Brown palettes, so this is more par for the course for me with BB!

I will be the minority here (literally the only one, lol) and say that I love BB’s Sparkle shadows. They must be used with a tacky base, such as Too Faced’s Glitter Glue, but they look absolutely amazing when patted on over a primer such as that. I have several and love them.

I saw these colors and my heart fluttered . So beautiful !!!!! Alas, after that review I’m not tempted at all . Christine has saved me a fortune over time by posting her reviews . I continue to be disappointed by BB.

OMG – why did Bobbi Brown bother with this dud? I hope your eyes are better now – this is just too bad that the product causes reactions like the one you experienced.
Apart from the awful ingredients in the trio, the colours are bland and do need a stronger shade. Pretty much like the first one you reviewed. Just when I was thinking BB had improved their act – the last trio was lovely.
Sorry BB you are a lost cause……

What happened to Bobbi Brown? I still have some of their old eyeshadows from years ago (when their singles when in round pans) and they were very good. I can’t believe they would sell something so bad. What’s the point? Tarnish their reputation?

They’ve been spotty on eyeshadows for years from my experience – I stopped buying BB palettes a few years ago as a result! I’m almost at that point with Too Faced, but Too Faced remains more popular (Bobbi Brown palettes were disappointing and readers didn’t seem to care to know either way!)

I mean, for the price: it’s a pass.

But (as with those old MAC Pressed Pigments where there was only payoff if you rubbed your finger in the pan) these could be really pretty as a wash of glittery shimmer on the eyes which I admittedly enjoy.

Hi Raja,

The glitter doesn’t stay well on the lid at all – they are nowhere near as “wet” feeling like the Pressed Pigments. Finger or not!

It’s too bad that the palette with some color has the poorest quality of the three. Except for the odd Christmas palette and the London palette last year, I’ve stopped buying BB eyeshadow palettes. I don’t understand why the sparkle & shimmer shades are so poor compared to other brands. I recently bought 2 matte shadows at the CCO and like the cream shadow sticks. Am a fan of certain BB products: lipsticks, brightening bricks, finishing powder, recent highlighters, mascaras, certain foundations and my HG corrector/concealers. My hope is that the quality of the shimmer/sparkle eyeshadows & eyeshadow palette overall improve in the post-Bobbi Brown era.

I still find the Metallic formula to be good, but the Sparkle one doesn’t seem to be updated and more like UD Moondust. TF’s glitter mobs are better and again, similar.

OMG I can’t believe BB could come out with such poor quality products! I do like the colours, though; Christine, do you know of any dupes for this trio as a whole rather than for individual shades?

I do not understand why they persist with the Sparkle formulation. I’ve stopped buying palettes because they inevitably contain a dry, patchy Sparkle shadow that ruins EVERYTHING.

(That might be a slight exaggeration but I’m someone who loves the brand, and even generally likes their matte and shimmer single shadows because I’m all about the sheer nude look. BUT ARGHHH SPARKLE SHADOWS NEED TO DIE.)
