Bobbi Brown Caviar & Rubies Eyeshadow Palette

When the Bobbi Brown Caviar & Rubies Eyeshadow Palette arrived, I was taken aback by its beauty. The gold and the dark ruby go together beautifully don’t they? I stayed away from sales this year but I simply couldn’t resist the beauty of the packaging and the middle light champagne super sparkly shade.  With superb reviews floating in a blogosphere, was it really worth the hype? 

A dreamy packaging of the Bobbi Brown Caviar & Rubies limited edition palette did not disappoint. I feels heavy in hand and just screams luxury. The combination of dark ruby and gold is irresistible, I really can’t fault it. It’s only my second every Bobbi Brown purchase but it won’t be my last.

The shade selection in the Bobbi Brown Caviar & Rubies isn’t my usual go to. You won’t find too many warm shades here. It’s cool, sophisticated and a perfect addition to my all warm eyeshadow collection. The beautiful Golden Beige (light champagne shimmer) and Black Scotch (dark brown with copper shimmer) are slightly warmer than others but nothing compared to most I own. Mattes are ultra pigmented and tell a story. There’s so much in this little palette and you can let your imagination go freely when you sit down to create any looks with it. Stunning burgundy Black Plum is intense, pigmented but also blendable. The ease all mattes blend with makes it worth every penny. Even the least ‘swatchable’ Moon Star behaves very differently on the eye and I love using it all over the lid or in the inner corners for a subtle yet defined highlight. Cool Grey is a perfect transition shade, ideal in the crease. And if you’re like me, super pale then Wheat will help blending it further. I’m yet to properly play with Deep Saphire but I’m so tempted by it, I may not be able to resist it for much longer. I can see a deep blue smokey eye coming in the near future. I’m also very impressed with Caviar which is described as black brown shade and it’s definitely in between. Mostly black and definitely cool. The star of the show Gilded has a formula unlike any others I’ve used and that alone says a lot. Gilded is almost etheral yet blinding. High polished light gold is shimmer on steroids with so much glitter, if you’re a fan, you’ll love it. I haven’t experienced much fall out either. Perfect to apply by finger which is my preferred method of application, or you can take a little on a flat synthetic brush, spritz some Fix+ and blind them with the pure shine! Stunning!
