Bobbi Brown Mini Eye Palette review

At first glance the packaging looks very chic, compact and definitely a travel friendly gem for every on-the-go type of girl. When you first open Bobbi Brown Mini Eye Palette there are only four shades that sit on top and four more can be pulled from under. Looking at the selected color range, I can see why this eye palette is available in only one color scheme. The earthy every day eye shadow colors dominate which means that there is higher chance of using this fuss free mini palette.

Colors like Sugar Plum, Cool Ivory and Nude are great for quick swipe all over the lid. For more advanced make up lovers Bone is great for applying under your brow bone and Saddle for adding more definition in the crease. Grown-up glitters such as Pink Rose, Gold and Opal are great for adding a bit of sparkle, transforming your make up look from day to night.

Consistency of all eye shadows is very creamy and easy to blend. The sparkly glitters are finely graded and not chalky at all. The shades have medium pigmentation, giving you more control over the intensity of the color.  Bobbi Brown Mini Eye Palette is about  £26 which I consider a great value for eight high quality eye shadows. This mini palette can be also a great present, stalking filler or just another impulsive buy (not pointing any fingers here).
