The Black Betty bam--BA-lam of Palettes
Bobbi Brown is an institution. Her application technique is clean, simple, straight forward and classic. She has made makeup more approachable and less intimidating for a lot of women. Bobbi Brown has really nailed her technique into something similar to a Pythagorean theorem: If you follow the basic rules of makeup technique, color theory, and design, you'll get a great simple look that will make you look like a pro MUA.
That being said, I have never been a big fan of Bobbi Brown's makeup. Her palette colors usually make me yawn. I tend to go for big and bold or very dark and vampy colors; It's just a personal preference. I came across this Caviar and Oyster Palette yesterday, and it really caught my eye. I took a few swabs of the palette colors and it intrigued me. So, I bit the bullet and purchased this palette.
I did an application with this palette and all I can say is Wow..... The colors are rich and lush; almost velvet like. You can create a wicked smokey eye or a soft, almost romantic looking eye, and the luminescent skin enhancer really completes the looks. If you are really into the smokey eye look, pair this shadow with Too Faced Perfect Black Orchid Waterproof Eyeliner. This is a black liner with a strong and distinct purple hue, and it's looks phenomenal paired with this palette.
I highly recommend this palette; it's a great multipurpose palette that will meet and exceed expectations. Based upon this one palette, I will be paying more attention to Bobbi Brown's collections, and for anyone that knows me and is familiar with my work, that is a BIG deal.
This is my all time favourite palette for most people they love the naked palette and other ones best but this is my favourite because the colours are perfect and beautiful they are soft and warm and perfect for an everyday look as well as looking hot in the night
