The Shimmering Sands Eye Palette is very much the star of the Bobbi Brown Sandy Nudes collection. Twelve nude toned shades nestle in a flat compact with a double ended brush included. I did find in the swatching that there is a lot of fall out with the shimmer shades, so you need to be really careful when applying. With shimmers, it’s best to apply your eye twinkles first and then you can wipe away any fall and continue on with your makeup. Or, attach a piece of tissue under your eyes (with some vaseline) and let the tissue catch the rogue bits.
So, going around the palette the swatches are: Sand Castle, White Sand, Seashell, Sunkissed, Copper Sand, Suntan, Beach Pink, Seashore, Beach Bronzed, Golden Sand, Bronzed Sand and Black Sand. You can see that there’s a mix of shimmer and mattes in the mix.
The final item I have is the Face & Body Bronzing Duo – this one is Telluride and Elvis Duran; a peachy pink and medium bronze.
£35 MYSTERY MAKEUP BAG (WORTH OVER £75)
Uncover this exclusive 7-piece set, full of mystery must-haves! Includes a full-size eyeshadow palette, exclusive makeup bag, and much more… while stocks last.
The compact is quite large – this will easily see you through summer and beyond probably – very wearable shades with the pink/peach doing the famous Bobbi ‘pop’ thing for your cheeks. It’s £34 which I think is a lot – there are other bronzer/blush combos that will do the same for less. The Palette is £52 which I think is really okay for 12 shades, even if they are little. But you have to love shimmer! They’re both HERE.
