The * Bobbi Brown Telluride collection (Limited Edition) hits counters today (July 5) around Australia! A couple of weeks ago I was generously sent the Bobbi Brown Telluride eye palette to feature on my blog.
I will be using the eye palette in an upcoming makeup look soon, but for now I am going to post up swatches of each eye shadow shade and give you my first impressions.
The inspiration behind the Telluride collection is one of Bobbi’s favourite destinations, of the same name amongst the mountains of Colorado. She has drawn inspiration for the shades in the collection from the gorgeous glowing tones of the late afternoon sun in Telluride.
Telluride Eye Palette description:
A palette of sunset-inspired eye shadow shades that deliver a range of brilliant eye looks. Featuring seven earthy eye shadows in a variety of brown, soft blush and mauve hues, this palette is a fresh take on a neutral eye—a major makeup trend from Fall 2015 New York Fashion Week. The palette includes a sleek Dual-Ended Eye Shadow/Eye Liner Brush for on-the-go application
Bobbi Brown Telluride eye palette first impressions
The shades vary in opacity, as you will see in my swatches below. I like that there are some matte shades, some shimmery shades and a full-on glitter! (Blazing Star Sparkle)
Just from the swatches the shadows, they were very silky to the touch. Cream and Woodrose are matte shades, but Woodrose is more pigmented than Cream. Cream seemed a little sheer, but I won’t get the full impact of it until I try it out on my eyelids. Heather Rose Shimmer Wash (wow, that’s a mouthful!) is exactly what the name suggests a sheer wash of colour with a hint of shimmer. Velvet Plum Metallic has larger glitter particles in it and I am impressed with it’s pigmentation! Antique rose is my favourite of the matte shades, it appears to have the same opacity as Woodrose. The last shade Smokey Brown is another matte shade and the most pigmented of the shades, it would be great for shading in the crease of the lids or along the waterline or even a softer winged look (than you get with eyeliner).
Unfortunately photos don’t do all of these shades justice! It’s hard to see the Cream swatch and Blazing Star Sparkle is a LOT more sparkly than it appears here.
As I mentioned at the start of this post, the Bobbi Brown Telluride Collection is available today, from the Bobbi Brown Studio, selected David Jones, MYER and Mecca Maxima stores (*Telluride Eye Palette RRP $95 and Sunset Pink Shimmer Brick RRP$72, only) and online at bobbibrown.com.au
