Hauled It: Bobbi Brown Diamond Dust Eye Shadow Review and Swatches

Few months ago I hauled a trio of Bobbi Brown Diamond Dust Eye Shadows from QVC for $50 bucks. The Muse loves a good deal and she got these with free shipping she felt like it was a total makeup score. I've never seen these from Bobbi before however a friend had mentioned they were released prior to this.

Moral of the story is they are still available in a three pack for $50 from QVC if you're lemming 'em after my review!

Click ahead to read it.

At around $16 bucks and some change each of these are a rather great little deal. They come packaged together in a single box but each have their own box when removed from the package. Pretty cool as if you don't like a shade or want to split up the trio with friends it ends up a pretty easy way of doing so due to the cool packaging.

You'll get three shades in the set which are Pink Metal (Shimmering Baby Pink), Snowflake (Shimmering White), and Gilded (Shimmering Gold). The shadow quite remind me of Vincent Longo Wet/Dry Sparkle Shadows or Milani Runway Eyes Wet/Dry Sparkle Eye Shadows. Appearance wise they do seem similiar to these shadows I mentioned but the formula is considerably different. Unlike the smooth application of Milani and Vincent Longo these have a bit of a gritty texture and not as much pigmentation as a normal Bobbi shadow. Although I love the finish and I don't mind the sheer colors I admit I'm not fond of the gritty texture which makes application a little bit of a chore. The finish results of the shadow are a very nice sparkly look, if you hate shimmer and sparkle you won't like them but if you like a shimmer finish you'll enjoy these.

Putting aside the gritty texture I do think they are a rather great steal although I prefer Bobbi Brown Sparkle Eye Shadow for a finer, easy to apply sparkle shadow.

Overall, I can't deny I loved the price and with a little work they apply very nicely. Worthy of a pick up if you're wanting to add to your Bobbi Brown collection!

These actually look almost identical to the Victoria's Secret Sexy Little Things eyeshadows. I think they're discontinued now, but that means if you look during Semi-annual sales (January and June) you'll probably find them for $3-4! They're wet/dry as well, and I've never felt that they have a gritty feel.
