Bobbi Brown Golden Slipper Eye Shadow Palette

I've had my eye on the Bobbi Brown Christmas Collection since it launched so when Black Friday rolled around and they whacked a nice 30% off on I finally snapped up the Golden Slipper Eye Shadow palette from the collection. 

The limited-edition beauty collection is inspired by the energy of dance and the holidays in New York City with each product adorned with beautiful watercolour art by Cecilia Carlstedt⁠. Cecilia has been working as a full-time illustrator since 2003 and has a recognisable flair to her work. She's worked with a wide number of clients within the fashion world so the Bobbi Brown Christmas Collection is a perfect fit.

The must-have palette features eight super-soft eye shadows, a mixture of matte and shimmers in rich coppers, radiant golds and warm mattes. I bought Golden Slipper (£36.50) to replace one that had seen better days and definitely needed chucking out and I am SO pleased with it. I haven't tried much from Bobbi Brown for eyes, I tend to stick with the Sparkle Sticks as they're a breeze to use when you want to add a little touch of colour to eyes but I'm so glad I bit the bullet with Golden Slipper. 

For my everyday makeup, I always reach for a neutral palette like this as it's so easy to wear with just the right amount of mattes and shimmers. Having a crease shade, highlight shade and something to sweep in the corners for a touch of shimmer is a must for me and you really can't go wrong with this beauty. 

The Shades
Pale Cream - Matte
Gold Barre - Chrome Metal Shimmer 
Burnished Maple - Chrome Metal Shimer 
Dawn Haze - Matte
Palm Desert - Matte
Cocoa - Matte 
Slow Burn - Sparkle Shimmer 
Modern Mocha - Matte

I'm not sure why it's taken me so long to try Bobbi Brown eyeshadows, I think it's because I've always viewed the brand as "older" and my twenties were full of Urban Decay and MAC Cosmetics. Either way, my makeup tastes have grown as I have and I'm really impressed. 

The formula is so soft yet with little to no fallout and as you pat it on to eyes the colour just holds so well - it's super easy to blend too which makes applying my makeup a dream when I have the time to do it in the morning. 

Can you tell I really love it?

If you're looking for a palette that you want to reach for daily, Golden Slipper is it - the easy-to-wear shades, buttery soft formulas and incredible pigmentation just make it such a sure-fire hit. You'll have to be quick though as it has already sold out a few times since it launched!

I think it's safe to say I'll be looking at Bobbi Brown a lot more closely going forward...
