A200960 - Bobbi Brown Shadow Options Palette with Brushes
Very dissappointed :(
I bought this shadow because of what it looked like in the picture. Very high glitter! This is very misleading at it isn't like that AT ALL!!! I wanted to love this shadow for the money but overall was very dissappointed. The only way i am able to wear this is wet and even then the glitter isn't anything like i had hoped.
Colors do not apply as they look in the palette - very washed out and very disappointing.
Surprised the rating isn't higher!!!
Just love this palette!! So many ways to combine shades & strength of colors depending on what you want. I use the matte for day, but there are many ways to change up your look with the shimmer shades. (Used lightly, they are great alone for the day too) Packaging is so compact, I have several of these palettes and the formula seems the same. I do use my fingers to apply shadows, but love the brush to tweak things.
Let Your Fingers Do The Work
I agree with previous review-I've found that using my fingers to apply the shimmer and metallic eye shadows deposits much more color than using a brush. Very easy.
The wet look
I almost sent this back because the shimmer eyeshadow did not stick to my eyelid.
However, if you apply this with your finger and pat it onto your eyelid (over eyeshadow) the look is amazing - it has a wet look. It looks really good!
Try applying with your finger!!!
Product is great
This is a great product and I recommend it. People who are not happy with the "glitter" shadows need to sweep it over the matte colors as per Bobbi's instructions. If they will do this, they should be very happy with the product. As an older woman in her 50's the sparkly shadow is subtle enough that it doesn't highlight crepey eyelids.
Normally I LOVE BB palettes - I have a few!
This one left very little color deposit at all. The matte shadows were like normal but I purchased for the shimmery ones! A couple of swipes and almost nothing!
Very disappointed in this on Bobbi! Please check your quality - this was not the same
awesome stuff you usually have!
These has become my favorite eye shadows ever!!...just what I have been looking for...soft sparkle with just a little color for everyday..if I need more color I use the bottom tray in the crease.. love them...
Absolutely no color payoff in the upper row. Her products seem to be more "miss" than "hit' lately. For some reason, her single shadows are much better than the ones in her palettes. This went back pronto!!!
Not worth the $$$
I was so excited to try Bobbi's shadows, but I was really disappointed. The matte colors creases and wore off quickly. I agreed with other people about the sparkle/shimmer shadows- NO COLOR!!! This is going back!
Once again another disappointing purchase. I found that this palette was dull and the shimmer eyeshadows hardly showed up and the more I tried to get them to come out on the brush all I saw was glitter. The matte shadows were ok but I think this palette is for someone who really wants hardly any color to show up. Sorry Bobbi!
where is the pigment??
I received this the other day, and the colores are very pretty, but there is no pigment to the shimmer colors, I tried everything. no color at all comes of onto the skin. Sorry Bobbi, but if you are going to charge these prices then they need to be pigment rich and smooth. they are rough, not silky like they should be. nice idea and great packaging.
