Desert Twilight eye palette, Bobbi Brown, $60
I hardly ever go in for eyeshadow palettes, because inevitably, I use one or two shades, and the rest languish in their case for eons. I refuse to throw them out (can’t just waste them!) and they grow into a collection that could rival some hoarders.
But the one exception I make to my no-palettes rule is for Bobbi Brown. Because every single time I buy one of her palettes, I use that thing until it’s completely gone. Every color is so unbelievably wearable, versatile and flattering that I even end up – gasp – branching out on occasion, and not just reaching for the same boring pale pink shadow day in and day out.
Her latest, Desert Twilight, might just be my favorite yet. I am having way too much fun playing makeup counter with this one – every time I take it out, I come up with a new combination of colors that I love. And because there are a couple of shimmers and a liner shade thrown in for good measure, it’s the ultimate travel palette. Day, night, casual, formal, whatever you’ve got going, Bobbi’s got your back, and I love her for it.
