Hey Pursebuzzers (:
Today’s featured product is an eye shadow palette from Bobbi Brown named Lilac Rose! IMG_4746
IMG_4747I absolutely adore Bobbi Brown packaging. The simplicity is beyond me!
This palette was launched in the Spring of 2013.
Therefore, it is a Limited Edition Palette.
IMG_4748This is the LILAC ROSE palette:)
IMG_4753This palette includes 8 shadows, a combination of matte and shimmer shadows.
5 matte colors, 2 shimmer colors, and a metallic color.
In my opinion, these shadows would be flattering on fair skin tones and any eye color!

IMG_4754These are the top 4 shadows.
Left to Right:
Ivory, Pale Rose, Pink Lily, Stormy Grey.

IMG_4755And these are the bottom 4 shadows.
Left to Right:
Barely There, Heather Brown, Dusty Lilac, Black Chocolate

IMG_4758Here are the swatches for the top 4 shadows.
Ivory is a pale, off-white matte finish.
Pale Rose is a slightly warm taupe color, also a matte finish.
Pink Lily is a shimmery pink.
Stormy Grey is a shimmery grey color.

IMG_4763 And these are the swatches for the bottom 4 shadows.
Barely There is a a more subtle champagne color.
Heather Brown is metallic champagne color.
Dusty Lilac is a rosy mauve with a matte finish.
Black Chocolate is a brown/black color with a matte finish.

Step by Step of products I used:
From the Bobbi Brown Lilac Rose palette, apply IVORY as your brow bone highlight & inner corner highlight. Apply PINK LILY on the lid. Apply STORMY GREY on the outer corner of your lid. Apply PALE ROSE in your cease & blend, blend, blend. Apply @cailyncosmetics black gel liner. Lashes are from @flutterlashesinc ELIZABETH (synthetic). Brows are filled in using the @anastasiabeverlyhills brow pro palette! ❤ & brow gel & brow highlight is from @billiondollarbrows :) to hide the lash band & for a more vibrant liner appearance, i lined my lid using @eyeko liquid eyeliner in black! ❤

Overall, I wasn’t entirely satisfied with this palette. Compared to other palettes that I own, this one would not be a repurchase for me if I ever hit pan on the shadows. I find this palette perfect for everyday wear. You can create a day look for work, and amp up the colors for more of a night time look. I would have to say that the top 4 colors are perfect for the day (they are toned-down colors), and I would say that the bottom 4 colors are perfect for an evening/night time look. I think the color payoff could be better, especially for the price point. Compared to most of my palettes, I love that this palette incorporates both cool and warm toned shadows. You can create many different eye looks, however, the pigmentation might be a little low, so I highly recommend using a primer! In my opinion, I believe that this palette works wonders for those who have light to medium skin tones, since the color pay-off is not as great. I would have to say that I love the packaging, so easy to just keep this palette in my make-up bag! Because these are neutral and muted colors, you can create a look within minutes– flawlessly :)

PROS:  good color selection, lovely packaging. 

CONS: color pay-off could be better, but it works for those who don’t like crazy pigmented shadows. 





I hope this review was helpful & have an amazing day!!
