Bobbi Brown Navy & Nude Eye Palette

The limited-edition Navy and Nude palette (£48) is patterned with a black and deep blue design, it houses 8 eye shadows, is two-tiered and contains a mirror.

I really like the compact design as it makes it easily portable.
The palette contains the below shades:
Ivory Eye Shadow: cream/white
Cement Eye Shadow: greyed beige
Blazing Star Sparkle Eye Shadow: pinky, gold glitter, no real base colour
Beige Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow: Shimmery warm beige

Twilight Pink Metallic Eye Shadow: shimmery golden pink
Naked Eye Shadow: warm nude
Slate Eye Shadow: medium grey
Rich Navy Eye Shadow: deep navy.

Swatches below, first level,

Then lower level, I've swatched the navy shade wet and then dry to show the difference in colour payout.

Its been a while since I have bought from Bobbi Brown, I often find the neutral shadows to pull very warm on me so was pleased to see the mix of cools and warms in this palette. The majority of shades have a smooth texture and feel lightweight. Three of the shadows do feel dry, however they all go on nicely and easily blend with one another without the patchiness you'd expect from a dryer formula.

Its nice to have an array of textures and the palette allows for a variety of soft wearable everyday looks but the inclusion of the navy allows one to add that bit more drama to create smokiness if desired.
I am really loving this and its certainly made me want to have another visit to the BB counter soon.

I bought this from John Lewis


  1. Looks so beautiful on you. I don't have any BB Palettes so maybe I should check this one out ;-))

    1. Thanks :) This would be a good one to start with, I bet you could do a great look with the navy in this x

  2. I love the look you've done with this palette, I love mine but I'm not nearly so clever with it!

    1. Thank you, I loved the look you did.
      I was eyeing up their Telluride Glow Collection today, that palette looks great for everyday wear as well ;)

  3. I've haven't bought any Bobbi Brown for ages too. This palette looks so pretty on you. What a great pick!

    1. Thanks :) I think there are so many brands these days its easy for some to get forgotten, it has of course given me the taste for more BB now :)

  4. Your eyes look especially nice. I haven't visited Bobbi's counter in a long time. Maybe it's time.

    1. Thanks Marcia :) I think it might well be time to pay BB a visit, I think this palette would work really well on you x
