Bobbi Brown Burnt Sugar Metallic Palette FOTD
One of the Muse's readers and mates, Taryn, requested I do an FOTD with one of the new Bobbi Brown Palettes.
Taryn, this one's for you! Hope you like it! You need these palette girlie (Wait did you get a few of these already? Can't remember eep!)!
What I used:
Bobbi Brown Burnt Sugar Metallic Palette
KATE Gel Mascara
I originally wrote a first impression about the palettes when I purchased them a week or so ago. I based this review solely on swatches I did and just viewing the palette by eye. I've finally dug in and used Burnt Sugar today so here's a mini review after using the palette.
My original post I had spoken about how the MA said the fall out was a major problem with these however I experienced almost no fall out! Originally the colors looked super shimmery, which of course leads to major fall out, however I experience no such problem during application this morning! Any fall out on my face in the pictures (I always have a severely hard time clearing up fall out!) is strictly from the Excel Single shadow that I used for a highbrow highlighter none of it was from the Burnt Sugar shadows!
The palette isn't as shimmery as I originally thought! I really have no word for the texture of these shadows. I read on someone's blog (*blush* I forgot who's otherwise I'd properly credit whoever it was) that the shadows almost feel creamy in texture and I think that pretty much sums up how they feel for me. It's almost as if the shadow is a cream and a powder in one. The powder is very thick and I'm curious how they'd look if I used a mixing medium to thin them out (If wet will they take on a Metallic look? Hmmmm something to try!).
Blending is a snap with these and the colors are highly pigmented as promised by the MA I purchased these from. You don't need much of the color to work with, a quick swipe of your brush will pick up plenty of color!
Personally I think Burnt Sugar gives a bit of a conservative look, for me anyway, as you know I'm one for bolder colors! However, I really do like the look these created, it's very natural, soft, and of course very Fall/Autumn.
Overall I like these and I experienced none of the drama I had with the Sand and Surf Palette! Yay Bobbi Brown! Keep palettes like this coming and I'll be back for more!
