Bobbi Brown Old Hollywood Eye Palette Review

Bobbi Brown Old Hollywood Eye Palette


Earlier this year I was lucky enough to meet up with the UK Bobbi Brown team and get a sneak peek of the upcoming Christmas collection. One product I knew had to mine on the spot was the Bobbi Brown Old Hollywood palette - nine almost neutral shades that are not old perfect for everyday wear but thanks to a few glitter shades suited for the festive season too.

The packaging isn't quite as glamorous as the shades held within but it does wipe clean rather well, holds a great sized mirror, a decent enough brush and is fairly robust. You can't really ask for more - I mean even Chanel use plastic for their cosmetic casings.

The shades inside the Bobbi Brown Old Hollywood Eye Palette are:
Ivory - matte off white, very weakly pigmented but can be layered on.
Golden Pink - warm true bronze, despite being glitter based it has a soft texture but again not the best pigmented.
Gold - pale cool toned gold, identical in texture and colour pay off to Golden Pink above.
Opal - bright true silver, very shimmery but soft in texture - makes a great highlight shade.
Fog - cool toned grey with a brown undertone, a soft matte that has intense pigmentation.
Beige - matte slightly orange toned medium brown, again soft in formula with great colour pay off.
Chocolate Bronze - glitter based deep brown with bronze reflects, the best pigmented metallic shade of the bunch and with a soft formula too.
Candlelight Gold - pale warm yet light gold, great pigmentation with a silky soft texture.
Eclipse - matte true black, intense pigmentation and no complaints with the formula either.

I have to be truthful and say that this is not the best Bobbi Brown palette I have bought in the last year or so, most of the eyeshadows lack high levels of pigmentation which is a little disappointing considering the £59 price tag. Ouch!

  19. I was looking at this the other day with my friend and half wanted to purchase it, but the shadows are available in so many more palettes out there it didn't seem worth it.
