Love it: Bobbi Brown Caviar & Oyster Palette



Arriving November is Bobbi Brown’s rather gorgeous – and as always, infinitely wearable - Caviar & Oyster collection.
Bobbi’s inspiration for the season reportedly started with a black motorcycle jacket and a piece of delicate pink satin – think a little bit uptown and a little bit downtown, all deliciously rolled into one. Seeing the two items together prompted her to create the Caviar & Oyster Palette (above), which is the real jewel in the crown of this pretty-but-edgy offering. Offering eight shadows and a sheer highlighter, the beautifully edited palette combines different textures and finishes to create a multitude of party and special occasion looks and is small enough to tuck into a handbag – genius! The selection of shades is the mix of shimmer, matte and drama to create just about any look from day to night.
The shades aren’t heavily pigmented, but what may seem like a lack of heavy colour simply translates to the ability to layer textures, colours and intensities without the shades getting muddied in the mix. They are also truly translucent when used sparingly - with no ashiness or chalkiness in the mix.
Try creating a stark, sculpted, retro eye with White Eye Shadow on the lid, Grey Sky in the crease and a cat eye with Rich Caviar wet as liner, finally layering on several coats of Bobbi’s new, limited edition Duel-Ended Mascara for megawatt glamour. Bellissima!
This Bobbi Brown Caviar & Oyster Palette is definitely a must-have for holidays home and away, and the go-to tool to help you wake up looking fresh or take to the streets dripping rock n’ roll sass. Love it!
