This weekend, i had a short trip to Winchester to see the fam. Me and my boyfriend also decided to take a quick trip to Gunwharf Quays at Portsmouth Harbour. For people who do not know, Gunwharf Quays is an designer outlet! At Gunwharf, they had a Cosmetic Company, this is my fave shops at these outlets because it stocks top end make-up brands for discounted prices. Perfect for a girl like me, as i love my high-end cosmetics, but do not like the price tag that comes with it.... i am a poor student after all.
So while i was browsing the heavenly cosmetic counters, i noticed this beautiful little zip pouch in the Bobbi Brown section. I have to say Bobbi Brown is not a brand i really go to, i have only ever tried the concealer, which is actually really good. So i swatched the colours on my hand and fell in love... The first row of shadows are: Opal (grey), Lavender (lilac), and Cool Ivory (taupe/grey) and the second row has Cobra (deep grey), Plum Orchid (purple), and Eclipse (black)....and i am not even one of those people that love wearing colourful eye shadows, but i love the lilac/purple in this palette and literally cannot wait to wear them!
Now this was still very expensive, it cost me £26.75 and retailed at £38!! However, i really think it will get a lot of use, because it is the perfect size for my handbag and has a good sized mirror, for touch ups throughout the day.
What do you think? Any recs for Bobbi Brown? I am considering trying more of this brand as so far the products seem amazing.
