Bobbi Brown Holiday 2009: Chrome Eye Shadows

Bobbi Brown always has a large selection of great palettes and gift sets for holiday.  Usually the palettes steal the show - but this year the standout products are the Chrome Eye Shadows.

Available in three colours - Gold, Silver and Pewter, these shadows are outstanding.  They are beautifully metallic, pigmented and just plain gorgeous. These are limited edition.

Gold is a tarnished version of the colour, not your average gold shade by any means.  This subdued darker shade is more sophisticated than brighter golds and will work well on any skin tone, especially when paired with warm browns. Silver is a true silver which is not too white or too blue.  Pewter is a taupey metallic and it is a perfect mix of cool grey tones and slightly warm greeny gold tones.  Pewter is a HG (Holy Grail) eye shadow and will (without any doubt in my mind) look amazing on anyone.  Everyone!

The shadows are very versatile, and can be worn sheer as a wash or layered on more heavily for serious drama.  As well, each shade will look great mixed with other shadows or on it's own with a little black eyeliner and mascara.  Since nabbing these on the weekend, I've already worn Pewter twice this exact way.

I can't recommend these enough.  They really are gorgeous and perfect for all those holiday parties around the corner.  Although they might seem expensive, price per gram they are cheaper than other department store brands. If you love metallic shadows run, don't walk over to your local BB counter and check them out.  I bet you won't be leaving empty handed!
