Review: Bobbi Brown Twilight Pink Lip And Eye Palette

Do you still get this palette? There’s no Bobbi Brown counter where I live, so I can’t check in store. This is sent to me as a gift a couple of months ago, and I’d like to let you see the swatches anyway, because most of the shades are permanent.

See? The palette isn’t very big, but I actually like that it folds small and opens well, long. The mirror closes to protect the eye shadows from the lipsticks before folding again to close the whole palette. There is a small eye shadow brush and a mini lip brush included, and truthfully, they don’t do much. I’d rather use my fingers >_< The eye shadows are of Bobbi Brown nature – not too pigmented but very smooth in texture. The 2 glitters are very very sheer, so it only offers some grown up gleam on the lids. If you’re expecting blings, then you’d be disappointed. The mattes and metallics are beautiful, and the eye colours allow natural looks. You won’t go wrong with a heavy hand. The softness in the colours are more forgiving. Again, if you prefer high pigments, this palette is not for you.

Top row (L-R): Ivory, Dusk (sparkle), Canary (shimmer), Cool Ivory, Nude

Bottom row (L-R): Slate, Opal (sparkle), Truffle, Twilight Pink (metallic), Espresso

The 4 lip colours included are from the Cream Lip Colour range. I used to be obsessed with the colour Heathermauve, or something like that. I can’t remember now! When new, it’s a little difficult to pick up the colour from the palette, but once you dig in, they apply creamy and pigmented. They are moisturizing on the lips but do not feather. I like that there’s a variety of colours here for mixing and matching.

I created a very natural day look for you guys. I added some sparkles on my lids, but it’s impossible to capture on camera! On my lips, I mixed Bronzed Pink and Pale Mauve and added a bright pink lip gloss on top.

Ah, and before I forget – I swatched the Sparkle eye shadows wet for you, and for myself, to see if they’d be a little more pigmented.

I hate using my eye shadows wet, but they do seem a little better than when used dry. However, I layered this like 4 times. I think it’s a sign – just use it dry and save the energy. LOL!

What do you think of this palette?

    No idea if this is still available here, but the colors are nice. I feel like Bobbi Brown typically does do nice selections of color, very wearable

    • Lily

      Very wearable indeed. I would think it’s very suitable for those just starting out. Less room for error compared to those super pigmented eye shadows. Furthermore, these blend really well :-)

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    No idea! It’s a trip and a half for me to go to an actual Bobbi Brown counter, and not sure if Sephora carries everything she has. It’s nice! Looks like a great neutral palette! Can never have too many of those…or can you hahahaha! ;)

    • Lily

      Lol you know me well. I love my neutrals!

  • Icaria

    This is a nice one (love the lip colors) that I don’t think was available at my Sephora. The ones we had recently were a bit of a let down where even the mattes were a little hard to swatch so forget about the glittery ones. Almost no color payoff. :(

    • Lily

      I never liked lip palettes but this is separated from the eye shadows so it’s Ok. Have you tried their creamy lip colour? They’re nice!

    I don’t like the wet/dry thing either – way too lazy. It looks nice! But I don’t like lip palettes at all – never use them.

    • Lily

      I know what you mean. Hate using eye shadows wet. I like to keep it simple.

    What a nice gift! My heart didn’t pound for this one, but Bobbi Brown makes useful and wearable palettes. You look fantastic!

    • Lily

      Thanks Liz. Yup wearable is the word

  • Bella

    I love the very natural “Bobbi” look you’ve made. This palette wouldn’t show up on me. I have the Rich Chocolate and Old Hollywood palettes from last year though…which reminds me that I should dig them out :).

    • Lily

      I have a few palettes I should dig up too. Lol!

    Hey Lily, love the look! I love matte Bobbi Brown eyeshadows, but when it comes to shimmery ones, it seems like the rarely get the textures right. They just seem really fallout-prone!

    • Lily

      You’re right about their sparkle eye shadows. I think I would’ve liked it better if they changed it to metallic ones. Those metallic ones are pretty good.

    You look so pretty, Lily!
    I must admit I am not a fan of the brand but I actually like the composition of the palette.
    The eyeshadow colors are so chic and poised!

    • Lily

      Thanks Lena :-) I must say some think this brand is boring, but for neutral lovers, this brand is heaven. HAHAHA! I think she should stick with her forte though – those sparkle eye shadows? Hhmmm…

      • http://www.lenallure.com/ Lena L

        I agree her neutral shades with satin finish are quite lovely. I detest her a bit cause I remember her trashing shimmery glittery shades when she first came out and now she makes them as well (not so good at it, it seems). Never say never! :D

        • Lily

          You’re right. That’s also probably why I always tell people I’m fickle. I change my mind all the time. Bahahahaha!!

    Oh wow I love the look you did with this, Lily! :-) The eyes…
    gorgeous!!

    • Lily

      Thanks Shari :-)

    I hate to say it but this palette looks kinda wishy-washy except for the lip creams. I swatched it at the counter and wasn’t impressed :-( But I love what you’ve done with it. I’m not a fan of Bobbi Brown in general but I do like a couple of their scents.

    • Lily

      I haven’t tried their scents before! Which one do you like?

  • http://Honeyfullife.com/ Honey Kim

    wow that case……and colors……. are gorgeous!! :D

    • Lily

      They are spot on for really natural looks :-)

    This palette is really beautiful! I am hot on the trial of the new BB Nectar & Nude e/s palette. I’ve never tried a BB eyeshadow before so I’m a little hesitant, but you can’t go wrong with neutrals (or adorable coral packaging), right? :)

    • Lily

      LOL Kristen. Be prepared for subtle natural colours – definitely nothing too strong or super pigmented from Bobbi Brown!
