Best Of 2011 Series: Bobbi Brown Downtown Beauty Palette

Ah, why oh why did I not ever gush about this palette on my blog?! It was backlogged on my laptop for the longest longest time. I suppose it's been such a staple I never thought too much about it. Shame on me. Srsly.

This was an exclusive QVC set that came out this past Spring. It came in a 6 piece set but the eyeshadow palette is the best part of the collection. Like srsly. The best ever! Luckily you can still find this on QVC here.

Bobbi Brown Downtown Beauty Palette





Ivory - matte white highlighter
Heather Lilac - a shimmery metallic taupe
Bronze - shimmery bronze
Heather - matte taupe 
Black Plum - gorgeous semi-matte base for a smokey eye



Overall this palette is full of gorgeous neutrals and versatile for any and every occasion, but especially fitting for the office. This is the palette that travels with me on my trips to LA when I usually pack at the last minute.

I hope your holidays are fun and warm right now, my dear readers and bloggers alike! I am officially on vacation today! Which means doing nothing for the next 4 days! *happy sigh* :)

Best of Series continues with foundations in the next post. Stay tuned! ^_^

the colours are gorgeous! I love the neutral shades <3 Are the eyeshadows naturally this pigmented or do you need eyelid primer to get this kind of consistency? .. only 4 days of holiday? O.O

@ Jen: haha, Yes! 4 days because I am no longer a student anymore. I do miss having 3 weeks of vacay though :) I chose to put in some hours before New Yrs so that still kind of counts for next week too :)

I think the palette is pretty. The neutral colors will look good for both day and night. Bobbi Brown usually makes gorgeous makeup.

Ohh this is so pretty...I have enough neutrals to last me a whole lifetime, but I always want more. Kind of like my lipstick/skincare/nail polish/I could go on for awhile addictions!

I can definitely see why you love this for travel, thanks for sharing!
