Bobbi Pastel

There’s something to be said for the sheer mastery of reinventing neutral shades – the Bobbi Brown Pastel Brights Palette is a great example of that but I just can’t get excited about it. In fact, my first thought was ‘enough’! It just seems neither one thing nor the other to me. The shades are Ivory (in EVERY single palette!), Baby Pink, Champagne Quartz, Platinum, Iced Blue and Rockstar and the last four shades are metallic. A metallic baby blue is really hard to wear at the best of times so I guess on a personal level what I’d pick out to wear would be Champagne and Rockstar, the grey metallic. And maybe the pink because that could look pretty with Champagne. But otherwise, I don’t know, I don’t really get it!

It could be that it’s a lot more lively in the flesh – it’s already on sale at BobbiBrown.com in the US – actually, I don’t know whether we’ll get it in UK, I haven’t heard. I can see that it’s a very fresh and spring like – but not sure how wearable it really is.
