Ladies and gentleman get ready to swoon for I have been nice enough to bestow upon myself what can only be described as one of the most beautiful eyeshadow palettes to hit the beauty industry. I know it’s a bold claim but look at those above photos and tell me it isn’t divine. Sleek black packaging, seven soft and pigmented shadows with only two containing shimmer, what more do I need to say. Considering I used to be all about the bold and colourful I am surprised at the 180 I have made into the World of neutrals. But after casting one eye over this palette it’s hard not to fall in love.
The Rich Chocolate Eye Palette is a collection release from Bobbi Brown and is currently available exclusively at Selfridges. A quick promo shot followed by some encouragement from the lovely Laura and this was snapped up in an instant. I must also mention Selfridges and their incredible online delivery team. Yes £4.95 had to be forked out but I placed this order at 11am on Wednesday and the palette was in my grips by 3pm Thursday – pretty darn impressive!
This palette marks my first foray into the World of Bobbi Brown eyeshadows and so far it’s love. The shadows feel ultra soft and silky to touch and they blend a dream. No creasing in sight, just long lasting pigmentation. As you can see from the bottom picture the palette isn’t the biggest thing going, however the quality and shade range of the shadows more then makes up for the size. Not only that but the darkest shadow on the right of the palette doubles up as an eyeliner and you get a dual-ended brush for precise application. As you can see I am pretty awe struck with this new addition. Apologies for the dodgy arm swatches, I’m sure better ones will surface but I wanted to give you a quick idea of what they looked like. I will be popping up some makeup looks of me wearing the shadows soon =)
