Bobbi Brown Metallics, Shadow Swatches

bobbi brown eye shadow metallic swatch fall 2008
Recently I shared with you the new Bobbi Brown Metallic Shadows. These truly are fantastic shadows. Bobbi really does not disappoint- they are well pigmented, blend easily and last forever! The best part of these shadows is of course the beautiful colors.

I have three of the new shades (1 of which unfortunately came unlabeled from BB, I think it is Java if I had to guess based on the testers I have seen at the counter). While I'm not sure that I would have purchased the Lavender and Mint colors on my own, I am reaching for them over and over for a nice pop of color!

The Mint and Lavender are both sheer but buildable and while they are slightly shimmery I love that they are somehow not at all frosty. The lavender in particular is very pretty with grey shadow and black eye liner, it becomes a great fresh take on a smokey eye!

The Java meanwhile seems to be one of those "boring" colors that somehow will work it's way easily into your everyday routine. The great neutral light brown has some green and bronze shimmer in it that though subtle will add incredible depth to any eye look!

Bobbi Brown's Metallics


  1. The one labeled as Java looks really similar to "Brown Stone" - I only say that because I received a labeled tester from BB with an order I placed, and it looks just like your swatch...Hmmm...we have a mystery! :)

  2. These look very pretty!
    I like the mint and lavender :)

  3. Bobbi has really kicked it into high gear lately, hasn't she? No more than six months ago I was barely taking the line very seriously at all, but now -- now I look forward to everything they come out with!

  4. You might be right Jaime! I really think those two are pretty similar. Whatever this unlabelled shade is that i have, I love it! :D

  5. Because of one of your earlier postings on the mauve colors from BB, I am now becoming hooked on some of their products. I normally just gave them a passing thought before. I like what I am seeing. Thanks for keeping us updated!
