This palette is from the Bobbi Brown limited edition Telluride collection. Telluride happens to be Bobbi Brown's favourite holiday destination which also inspired this range.
The palette comes with 7 neutral shades. I don't know about you, but sometimes I get overwhelmed by the amount of shades in my Naked palettes and so I stick to only a few trusted colours. This palette however has just the right amount to give you a daytime or a nighttime neutral look.
The colours are:
Cream - matte cream, highly pigmented
Woodrose - matte light beige, cool toned. Perfect transition colour and highly pigmented
Velvet Plum Metallic - metallic brown with plum undertones, highly pigmented
Blazing Star Sparkle - white gold sparkle, not much pigmentation and huge fallout
Heather Rose Shimmer Wash - rosy brown, medium pigmentation
Antique Rose - matte light beige, warm toned. Perfect transition colour and highly pigmented. (Note: in the swatch below you can't see the pigmentation that well as it blends into my skintone).
Smokey Brown - matte dark brown, very high pigmentation when applied with small brush. Great to use instead of eyeliner.
Here are a couple of looks I've done with this palette. In the first one I've used Cream on the lid, Velvet Plum in the crease and Smokey Brown on the outer V and lash line. In the second look I've used Velvet Plum on the lid (used wet), and blended it out with Antique Rose.
On the whole this is an excellent palette, with its only let down being the sparkly white shade. If in its place we'd gotten a nicely pigmented shimmery white (e.g. for inner corner highlight), this would have been an absolutely perfect palette.
What do you think of this palette? Yay or nay? Are you guys over neutral palettes yet or still love them?
The Bobbi Brown Telluride Collection is available in Australia from 5th July 2015.
