Sunday Stash Shopping #24 with Bobbi Brown Nectar & Nude Eye Palette

It’s been a while since I did a SSS. I also wanted to review this Bobbi Brown palette (looooooong overdue) so I thought I’d also do a quick write up on it. Bad blogger here, because I don’t know if the palette is still available, so if it is, be sure to let me know :-) I haven’t been in the mood of much makeup, and I’ve been so lazy, I’ve just been going out after slapping on my tinted sunscreen. However, when I do want to look more polished, this palette is something I’ve been reaching for.

Femme Boulevard: Old and New

Today, we’re doing a product based theme. The oldest and newest in our stash. For me, my oldest got to be my Kanebo T’estimo eye shadows which were long discontinued. The latest is a lip product by Bobbi Brown – their Art Stick. It worked out quite well, actually because I haven’t talked about either of them before. Also, Kate and I are the only ones doing this, and it so happens, Kate is the newest member of Femme Boulevard, and well, I’m the old one. LOL! Here’s a look at the product I used for this look.

Femme Boulevard: Hollywood Goddess

To tell you the truth, I don’t have a particular favourite Hollywood actress. I have girl crushes sometimes, but I seldom go crazy on actresses or actors or singers. So when my fellow Femmes suggested channeling Hollywood Goddess, I was a little stuck. What or who am I going to do? I delayed this post, and postponed until the very last minute… just a few hours before the post is due. I went through all the photos of the most recent Oscars and noticed one thing. Most of them looked like themselves, just better. Many played up the eyes, paired with subtle cheeks and nude lips. However, most of them, most of the time, wore makeup that’s noticeable but not over the top. Hence, that’s what I chose to do. I played with colours close to my own natural skin tone, browns, beiges and a hint of pink.

FOTD: Bobbi Brown Amnesia Rose Palette

OK, I finally got some photos taken – of a look using the purples of the Bobbi Brown Amnesia Rose Palette. It was after work, and I was going to get myself cleaned up, then I thought, well, maybe I should slap on more makeup, take some photos, THEN shower. Yup, I always have great ideas. LOL! Anyway, Ultra Violet turned out to be more pink than purple on my eyes, and Iron doesn’t show up much paired with it either. Mulberry is a good contrast colour because it is the most pigmented. So, the bold colours I see on the pans turned out to be soft, sheer-ish wearable colours on the lids, as predicted :-) I’ve read some mixed reviews about this palette, and let’s be real. Just like anything in life, really, some will like it, some will not.
