Bobbi Brown Sheer Brights

Bobbi Brown are continuing the pastel trend through to Autumn this year and are launching fifteen new eye shadows.
  These powders provide sheer washes of vibrant shades. Imagine a beautiful watercolour painting using muted tones of a vibrant colour.... does that make sense !?

The fifteen shadows have been broken down into three groups depending on their finish. Natural matte, shimmer and metallic. Please note though each colour is not available in each finish. Hopefully the colour you like will be in your desired finish!

The shadows are sold individually in their classic flip top compact although they also fit into a customisable palette which is sold separately.

We have five of the new shades to show you....

Natural matte finish....
Sunrise Pink, Cornflower, Pistachio



Shimmer finish....

Berry Sorbet

Metallic finish....
Aegean Blue


As you can see from the photographs the colour payoff is not as vibrant as it looks in the compact. All the textures were easy to blend although they were a little crumbly in the pan when you push your brush into it. Use small amounts and build up but don't expect the colours to get too strong. The whole idea is that these are sheer washes of colour.
 Our favourite colour was Pistachio. This looks beautiful swept under the lower lash line to brighten the whites of the eye.
 These eye shadows are £17.50 each and the collection is available from September exclusively at Bobbi Brown free standing stores and online at www.bobbibrown.co.uk
