Review: Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Eye Palette

Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Eye Palette ($55, Nordstrom exclusive)- This palette is tailor-made for anyone who wants eye makeup that’s long-wearing and smudge-resistant. Features new and popular shades of best-selling Long-Wear Cream Shadow, a soft, velvety formula that doesn’t crease, and Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner, a gel-based formula that can be used to create subtle to dramatic looks. Comes in a protective, airtight palette.
  • Moon Rock Palette includes Gold Drop Long-Wear Cream Shadow, Mineral Dust Long-Wear Cream Shadow, Espresso Ink Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner, Black Topaz Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner.
  • Night Sky Palette includes Rockstar Long-Wear Cream Shadow, Ocean Storm Long-Wear Cream Shadow, Black Ink Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner, Thunder Storm Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner.
I was really excited about this set. But, when I got it, I discovered that I didn't like Gold Drop or Mineral Dust. The glitter was too chunky and the formula didn't apply evenly and didn't seem all that creamy. I really liked the 2 gel eyeliners, but I wasn't going to keep it just because I liked half of it. So, back it went. I do have to say, I think it would be awesome if BB made it so you could mix and match gel liners with long-wear cream shadows. I'd be all over that.
