Bobbi Brown's Eye Couture Palette - Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman Exclusive

Like jewel tones? Like Bobbi Brown makeup brushes? Check out this incredible Bobbi Brown Eye Couture Palette ($220), a Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman exclusive expected to arrive in stores any day.

I realize it's starting to seem like Bobbi Brown week here at Best Things in Beauty (or Chantecaille week), but there has been so much news to share. I've even held back the Bobbi Brown holiday collection photos. I couldn't hold this news back. I predict that this limited-edition collection is going to sell out, and I want my readers to have first dibs. Get on a waiting list! I'll share contact information with you below.

First, though, I'll describe this palette. Just look at the jewel-toned shades at left in this scanned photo. Deep and luxurious, most of them telegraph fall and winter. You don't just get beautiful eye shadows with the palette; you also get four brushes in a carrying case!

Here is a list of the eye shadow shades.

  • Star Sparkle Eye Shadow
  • Diamond Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow
  • Peacock Metallic Eye Shadow
  • Onyx Sparkle Eye Shadow
  • Amethyst Metallic Eye Shadow
  • Emerald Sparkle Eye Shadow
  • Bonfire Metallic Eye Shadow
  • Topaz Metallic Eye Shadow
  • Bash Metallic Eye Shadow
  • Volcano Sparkle Eye Shadow
  • Lapis Sparkle Eye Shadow
  • Garnet Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow
When you think Bobbi Brown, you usually think neutrals, right? Bobbi has always had some darker, punchier shades, but this fall, she has added "wearable dramatic" to her counter repertoire, and I am thrilled by the variety.

As if the eye palette weren't enough, it comes with a brush set in a case that includes these brushes - all travel-sized.

  • Eye Sweep Brush
  • Angle Eye Shadow Brush
  • Eye Contour Brush
  • Eye Liner Brush
Bobbi Brown's makeup brushes are all top quality, so the addition of the brush set is so practical.

If you have a Neiman Marcus or Bergdorf Goodman near you - and you want this set - I'd suggest you get on the waiting list. If you don't have a store nearby, but would like to order the Eye Couture Collection, you can give Rachel Lagman, Bobbi Brown Product Specialist, at Neiman Marcus a call at (202) 966-9700, ext 2265. She will take good care of you.

Sometimes, Bobbi's collections that are exclusive to department stores eventually land on Bobbi's own Web site. This one may too - I don't know. I'm not taking that chance. I'm on the list!

Update 8/25: This palette arrived at Neiman Marcus today! They only got six of them in the first shipment. If you want it, call Rachel now!

Just unbelievable! I have never seen so many "real" colors with BB, only neutrals. Those look fantastic!!!
So far neither this eye-couture palette nor the Black Velvet collection are available here(I'm safe..)...How do I avoid bankrupcy when they are? I'd like to know..any idea?:-)

Hi Clarisse,

That gave me a good laugh. The nice thing about Bobbi is how affordable the pieces are! Compared to Guerlain, they are a steal. :)

Clarisse said...

I know, Guerlain is terrible about the prices!...
For me it's the sum of all the beauties you've introduced us to : **** Guerlain + ****Chantecaille + ****Bobby Brown+ ****Shiseido...see what I mean... my banker is going to choke to death, poor man:-)))

At least your banker knows you! In the U.S., we are just a computer entry for our bankers. :) Customer service is a misnomer.
