Bobbi Brown has a couple of collections this holiday season. While Old Hollywood seems to be all the rage, let’s not forget about the Gift Giving Collection! Today I have Sequin Shimmer Brick Eye Palette, an eye palette with 10 shades of glitz and glam, to show you!
Bobbi Brown Sequin Shimmer Brick Eye Palette (4 grams/0.14 oz. RRP in Belgium: 60 euros) comes in the typical sober and sturdy packaging of the brand. I had somehow imagined it would be bigger from the promotional images, but it is actually pretty tiny and cute!
There are 10 shimmery shades in Bobbi Brown Sequin Shimmer Brick Eye Palette. The texture seems baked, but all 10 shades are smooth and pigmented. What’s more, they blend easily and produce no fallout. There is also a mixture of warmer and cooler shades. I wasn’t sure how easy it would be to pick individual shades up with a full-size brush (MAC 239), but it turned out to fit just fine!
The first 5 shades swatched:
The other 5 swatched:
For the look, I used the 5th shade in the inner 2/3 of my lids, the 2nd on the outer 3rd, the 10th in the inner corners, and the 9th smudged over the gel liner on my lower lash line:
Bottom line: All in all, Bobbi Brown Sequin Shimmer Brick Eye Palette has good quality. Just because most of the shades lean light and are shimmery however, you might want to throw some darker/matte shades into the mix if you want more definition. I would also recommend it more for fairer ladies, as most shades might end up looking very similar on bronzed beauties!
Too much glitz and glam for ya or is it something you would wear?
