When I was in Jenners a couple of weeks ago, enjoying my Bobbi Brown makeup lesson (you can read about it here), I got to play around with some of the brand’s limited edition goodies which have been released just in time for Christmas.
I couldn’t resist the Sterling Nights palette, which contains nine of the most gorgeous neutral shades you could imagine. Packaged in a beautifully weighted black compact, it’s a real stand-out product!
The shadows are inspired by star-studded skies, and range in textures from creamy mattes to rich, sparkle infused shades which glisten on the eyes. I just adore the range of cool toned neutrals, which make achieving a smoky eye incredibly easy.
For day, I like to mix the soft taupe shades (middle left and top middle) and line my eyes with the shimmery chocolate brown (middle right side). It gives eyes the perfect amount of definition without looking overdone, and the shadow textures are just perfection. Then, if I want a more intense look, all I need to do is add a little of the darker shades.
I absolutely adore all the shadows in the palette, but if I had to choose a favourite, I think it would be the bottom left shade Midnight Sparkle. It’s a deep charcoal which has been shot through with plum glitter, and it’s just such an unusual shade, and it’s incredibly pretty on the eye. For a more dramatic evening look, I’ve been using Midnight Sparkle as a liner, then finishing the look with lashings of mascara.
Bobbi Brown’s Sterling Nights Palette is priced at £59.00 and is available here (UK) and here (US)
