If i made a word cloud of my 10 most recent posts the word sparkle would be in big letters right in the middle, so it seems apt that Bobbi Brown have brought out a palette to leave you sparkling all night especially now we’re in January – I don’t know about you but i don’t immediately think of sparkle in January so i’ll do anything to up the amount . My Bobbi Brown obsession has gone from 0-100 recently, since having never tried a single product in October, to almost wearing a full face of Bobbi Brown in December on the daily it’s grown a special place in my heart.
I’m a fan of a face palette, but usually they leave you with little choice when it comes to the eye department.. not with the Sparkle all night palette however. Yes, the picture above isn’t playing tricks with your mind, you get 12 eyeshadows in this (and we haven’t even touched on the face products yet). Part of the reason i’ve been reaching for this on a daily basis is simply because of the sheer choice available.. want a smokey eye? Done. A gold shimmer? Of course. A fail safe matte brown? You’re covered. The combinations are literally endless and as this is Bobbi Brown the quality is top notch too.
Bobbi brown have a few different eyeshadow lines and in this palette you get 3 of those within the different shades – sparkle eyeshadows, shimmer eyeshadows and mattes.
The sparkle eyeshadows have to be my favourites from Bobbi Brown, i’ve written about them before in this post and i learned about them from a Bobbi Brown PRO so i feel like i have a loyalty to them.
Most brands would group shimmer and sparkle eyeshadows together but Bobbi Brown sparkle eyeshadows are unlike any other shimmery eyeshadows i’ve tried, they literally sparkle .. move your head while you’re wearing these and you’ll look like you KiraKira +’ed your own eyeballs.
SPARKLE ALL NIGHT
The main reason i love a face palette is that the 3 biggest powders you have to travel with are all compacted into one place, actually i think i just wrote the point of a face palette there .. In the Sparkle all night palette you get a highlight, bronzer and a choice of two blushers and because this is Bobbi Brown they’re all equally natural, pigmented and bendable. I’m always a bit wary of palette’s with face powders in just incase the shades don’t work with my skin tone, but these are pretty broad spectrum – you’d be able to build them up if you needed to, or go light handed with them like i do.
I actually don’t get much use out of the brighter of the two blushes on the daily, but if i’m feeling particularly pale i will reach for it; however the slightly deeper blush has become the one i reach for every day, along with the bronzer and highlighter. I’m pretty pale, like white as a sheet, so when it comes to the bronzer i do need to use a light hand, but i only see that as a good thing – you use less product!
If you ask me sparkle is an all year round occurrence, January definitely needs some sparkle adding to it and this is what i’ll be using to do it.
