Right in time for Valentines Day, Bobbi Brown has released an absolutely stunning collection that’s all about red lips and nude eyes. I’ve gotten my paws on the fabulous Sultry Nude Eye & Cheek Palette, which is all about creating the perfect backdrop for a bold red lip look.
The packaging for the palette is, as you would expect from the brand, absolutely on point. It’s gold and glossy and feels like it should be displayed on my dressing table. I just love that crest on the lid – and when you crack into the palette it gets even better – four shadows and a blush are tucked inside.
The shadows are pretty much exactly what I like to wear on a daily basis. For a simple daytime look, I sweep Champagne Shimmer (top left) from my lash line to my brow bone. It provides a light, slightly shimmery base colour, then I work the shimmery taupe (bottom left) into my crease for a bit of definition. Then, if I’m feeling a little fancy, I work a little of the Golden Pink (top right) into the middle of my lid, when line my lash line with the chocolate brown. It’s a really stunning look, that’s deceptively easy to apply, and looks like you’ve put in far more effort than you actually have.
The blush included is the shade Nectar, is a perfect peachy coral, which adds a subtle wash of colour. Considering how pale I feel, it’s very much needed, and I only need the tiniest bit to really lift my whole look.
As you might expect from Bobbi Brown, the formulas are absolutely glorious – the shadows are buttery smooth, and even though they do kick up a little dust in the pan, but the apply smoothly, with great colour payoff and no fallout. They also blend like a dream and last all day!
