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!
