I really wanted to LOVE this palette- I've never tried Bobbi Brown before in ANY of her cosmetics so I was super excited to try this out. There ARE some pluses about the palette AND some positives- BUT...let's start with what I do NOT like about it: to start off, I was a little disappointed in the quality and amount of product that was in the palette for the $. That being said, if the quality is there, I can sometimes forgo the amount of product- but I didn't really find much of either with these eye shadows. I was hoping for BETTER quality than what I paid for :( They just didn't have the pigmentation and silky feel that the higher quality shadows usually have! The product had much more of a chalky feel and didn't seem to last ALL day without some touching up as well.
With all of those negatives, I know you're thinking how in the world could I have even found anything positive in the palette at all at this point?! Yet I did find a couple of things I DID actually find that were good about it: The colors in the palette are spot-on in regards to the new colors for spring and 4 out of the 6 shadows have a metallic sheen that does make them pop :) The other 2 shadows I am not as fond of as they are more of a matte style of shadow and I have plenty of those and haven't been a fan lately of mattes. Of course, there are a LOT of us out there that absolutely LOVE matte eye shadows and don't very much care for those with shimmer...so if this sounds like you- I would avoid this palette as the majority of the shadows are not that type! The brush was also a great addition to the set as it was a good size and probably better quality than the actual shadows- the case has a GREAT mirror too!
