Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Eye Palette

Can we all just take a minute to admire the beauty that is the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Eye Palette. I was completely captivated by the mirrored case and delicate pink shades in the palette when I first held this in my hands; it's the prettiest item in my make-up drawer hands down, and who can blame me for thinking so. I nabbed this limited edition Pink Opal Shimmer Brick from Cohorted a few weeks back and it's not taken me long to realize that this is definitely going to be my go to palette during party season.

The shadows in this palette are a stunning collection of pinks, silvers and neutrals, all of which have a glimmer to them which is what makes them stand out as being ideal for the festive season. For me, wearing block colour shades such as pink has always been a bit of a rarity as I find they aren't quite subtle enough for my taste. However, the pastel and shimmery tones in this palette are a variety of colours that are more wearable for both everyday and formal occasions as they are less in your face, easier to co-ordinate, blend and build upon. On first application for a number of these shades are quite sheer, especially the neutrals in the palette, but I've found that they are easy to build to enhance the colour if you chose to. I think it's quite nice to have shades that are buildable in a palette as then you have more flexibility and power over what exactly you're using a shade for and getting out of it to create a desired look.

I'd never tried eyeshadow by Bobbi Brown before purchasing this palette, but I've been fairly impressed with the staying poweder of the shades in this Shimmer Brick. I don't currently use an eye primer so with that in mind seeing the shadow last for the majority of the day is quite impressive considering I've oily eyelids. I'd definitely invest in an eye primer if I needed this to last all day and night, but for my current use I find it manageable. The palette itself is quite small making it handbag/clutch friendly, so this could easily be touched up at any point of the day and night if need be.

The gorgeous array of pink, silver and neutral shades provides the ideal kit for bright, beautiful and girly party eyes which as Christmas and New Year approach there will undoubtedly be lots of opportunities to flaunt.
