A84502 - Bobbi Brown Nude on Nude Shimmer Wash Eye Palette
Not for 50 Plus
I could not wait to get this palette! However, I would not recommend this for 50 plus. It was very light, and when you try to put more on it was too shinny, and showed all your flaws. It would be great for young teens.I love bb products, but this one is going back. BB rem. the 50 plus!!!
I purchased this eye palette from Bobbi Brown several months ago, and after using it these past months to the extent that I'm NOT using any of my other eyeshadows or eyeliner, I think I can safely say that I have found perfection. The colors are perfect----light and subtle (or they can be layered and made more dramatic), sophisticated. Instead of looking like a wanna-be 20-year old, I now have a makeup option that allows me to look my age AND look beatiful at the same time. These are very high quality shadows, and there is exceptional ease of use built in simply because of the superior quality. The dark brown shade I use with the included brush as an eyeliner. Let me just say, I have NEVER had an eyeliner go on so well, so smoothly, so professionally. I get very easily frustrated with makeup. I always have. Now I know it's because I wasn't using exceptional quality makeup. Very simply, I wasn't using Bobbi Brown. If you're looking for drama and bright, garish colors, this palette isn't for you. If you're looking for subtle sophistication, ease of use, and exceptional quality------you cannot do better.
I'm very much looking forward to more Bobbi Brown product offerings from QVC in 2010. I can't wait to see what's next for her. Thank you Ms. Brown and QVC!!!
An OK set but not my favorite BB purchase
I think this set is just so-so. What's good about it is that the colors are probably universally flattering; I can't imagine anyone looking bad in these or messing up with the application. Also on a positive note, the brush that comes with the palette is a great brush. But the colors are very, very discreet and hardly deposit any color; I can barely see them on! I know Bobbi is all about the natural look, which is why I love her stuff so much-- but these shadows give me more of a nothing effect than a natural effect. I think this is a nice palette for younger girls just getting into makeup (so they don't overdo it) or for an eyeshadow novice who might be nervous about using shadows, but if you're a seasoned makeup person who knows how to use color, you might be disappointed in these if you were expecting anything beyond a very very light wash of color.
A friend has the palette that came in the TSV (which is not sold separately) and I thought this palette looked the most similar. I couldn't even tell that I was wearing anything when I had these on! I am very pale so I was very surprised that these were so unnoticeable on me. When I tried using the dark color it just looked like I had a black eye.
Her shadows go on so smooth and are great to wear, but these colors are TOO neutral. I might have to order the other kit just to get some decent colors of hers!
Everything you could need
I absolutely LOVE LOVE this eye palette of Bobbi's. This is super easy and soft and pretty. It works great with her new Caviar gel liner too. The colors in this palette are my favorite ones so far (with the exception of her Nude eye palette, another favorite) they blend so easily and just look awesome! I love the fact that you can go from day to evening with this as well with very little effort. I hope that Bobbi & QVC keep this around for a LONG time!! I'd be devastated if it was discontinued.
Great for teenagers too!!!
I purchased this for my teenage daughter to try/use. She just LOVES it. I love it because the colors are nice and neutral and goes with ANYTHING. She does NOT leave the house looking like she is all made up with heavy makeup and she is getting quality eye shadow that will not harm her skin. It is also good for her learning to apply since these colors are easy to correct. I would highly recommend for anyone wanting a nice neutral look.
I love the colors in this palette. They are neutral and perfect for everday wear. They give a pretty, polished look and they last. Also, there is a lot of product in this palette, which makes it even more worth the money. I've been wearing these colors almost everyday since I got them! Highly recommend!
At 50 years of age, I find myself being re-introduced to makeup application with Bobbi Brown. I adore the videos that she & QVC provide - Thank you. I really
adore the natural look I now achieve using this palette - especially lining the eyes.
I always, ALWAYS wore pink shadow with a black pencil before. NOT SO ANYMORE! LOVE this palette for gorgeous eyes as evidenced by comments from my husband, family, friends, colleagues, and even strangers :)
TSV too similar to other products
I purchased this as a TSV and the colors in the eye palette are almost idential to another palette offered (only one color is different), plus the lipstick palette colors, also part of the TSV are basically clear on my lips except for one. Overall, the eye colors are too dark for a spring/summer palette. I am on autodelivery so I hope the next TSV is a lot better. Colors didn't work for me, may be they will work for you. I wish QVC would name and list the colors in palettes on-line and when presented on air. Overall, I especially love Bobbi Brown lipsticks.
Exactly what I wanted---Love it!
First off, as the name implies, these are nude shadows. Basic, natural, everyday, wear with everything colors. If you want something with more punch or drama, then you probably won't like this palette. The colors give a good base of color which can be layered or worn as is. The shimmer is very slight, not sparkly or frosty, just enough so the shadows don't look flat. I wear BB gel eyeliner and mascara so I prefer not to wear dramatic eye shadow for daytime. I have fair skin (BB warm sand), blue eyes, and red hair so for me, these show up well and give a polished look. Also, shadows are excellent quality, sleek case, nice brush.
As for the colors, Nude is a pinkish ivory (good for brow bone), Cement is a grey taupe, Wheat is true taupe (but much lighter than BB's Taupe), Woodrose is a pinkish taupe. Similar, but slightly different.
Let me start out by just stating that if you are looking for dramatic eye shades, non-soft colors, this palette is NOT for you. This palette is perfect for when you want eye shadows to 'POP" your natural eye color, so everyone sees your gorgeous eyes and not your shadows. As a color shading guide, I'm a very light blonde with blue eyes, and I wear BB foundation shade SAND. This eye palette was EXACTLY what I was looking for. Soft, muted 'nude' shades that are very pretty that you can wear a variety of different way or combine with other BB eye colors. With blue eyes having soft neutral colors really POPS my eye color out and these are perfect. I love having a mirror and brush all in one. I can pop it in my bag and easily do touch-ups if needed on the go. The brush is perfect for applying the eye color, just remember a basic makeup trick, tapping the brush before applying the color to the eye so you dont get extra powder on your cheeks. The liner end is perfect for applying the powder (dry or wet) as a liner. The colors mixed together are gorgeous. They do have a slight shimmer which is going to be great for this spring/summer as shimmer is in, BUT it's not a drastic shimmer, it is really sublte. I'm 35 and it's perfect, my mom who is in her 60's could easily wear these colors. You wouldn't have to worry about the shimmer highlighting the wrinkles. Plus, my mother is dark haired and hazel eyes with much darker skin then I and these colors would look great on her. I hope this helps someone. I'm really going to enjoy this palette!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Exactly what I was looking for!
This is my second eyeshadow set by Bobbi Brown and it's exaclty what I was looking for in eyeshadows. The quality of the shadow is excellent. Personally, I prefer the "wash" of color in eyeshadow because I want to be able to walk out in the natural light and have my eye makeup look soft, not thick or drawn on. I love these colors, there are a lot of shimmers out there and they look garish, these do not, they blend easily and are very enhancing. The dual-ended brush is easy to use, the fine-tipped one applies the liner with perfection. This is a great buy, I anticipate this palette lasting a long time.
