Bobbi Brown Smokey Nudes

This time of year we do see a ton of similar palettes and although beautiful in their own right it's sometimes hard to distinguish one from the next. When I saw this new palette from Bobbi Brown (launching this September) I thought is this going to be something like I have already seen. How wrong to jump to a conclusion!
 What I loved about this palette first of all was it's size and shape. Rather than a long palette this duo layer powder shadow palette houses eight shades in a mix of finishes all neatly packed into a 3'x3' palette.
 The tortoise shell effect palette has two layers. The top layer pulls back on opening and the bottom layer is a drawer which pulls out.

Top layer...
Includes a buttermilk with a matte finish, a soft apricot, also matte and a mink in matte. The forth shadow provides a sheer wash of wet look sparkle set in a smokey taupe colour. The fine reflective pigments include gold, rose gold and silver glitter.
 Bottom layer...
A shimmering pearl pink with gold and lavender glitter, a metallic champagne, a metallic grey/taupe and a matte aubergine/black in matte. The last colour could also be used as an eyeliner also.

No fall out from these shadows onto the face although the glitter does travel into the other shades a little in the palette.
 Colours blend easily and there is good selection of tones and shades to take your makeup from day through to night.
 The size of this palette makes it ideal for travelling or to pop into your handbag. The mirrored lid makes is simple to touch up on the go.
 This palette is £48.00 which I actually think is not a bad price for eight great quality shades in such a convenient sized palette.
