I am really into ordering off of QVC. It is so addicting. On one such occasion, I had purchased the Bobbi Brown 6 piece downtown collection. In this collection, was the downtown palette.
|Bobbi Brown Downtown Palette|
Ivory - off white, matte
Heather Lilac - metallic, very sheer, very subtle lilac
Bronze - shimmer wash, nice soft bronze with a gold like sheen
Heather - matte, purple taupe
Black Plum - shimmer wash, darkened purple with gold shimmers
|Downtown Palette colors|
Heather Lilac takes the longest to build up. Surface of this shadow is odd, as if I had used this wet when I never have. You get more shimmer than actual color with this one.
Bronze is soft and easy to work with. Shimmery without being overload, I like this to smoke out dark bases.
Heather is a smokey, purplish taupe that is flat matte. I find this to be a great crease color without trying too hard. I also like it for outer V application.
Black Plum is pigmented, but needs a bit of work to blend. The shimmer stayed within the shadow, which was nice. Use a really good base with this...I have found this to skip on some bases.

I hope everyone had a great weekend and wonderful Father's Day!
