Bobbi Brown Bare to Bold Eye Palette Giveaway Contest

The Bare to Bold Eye Palette ($45) has six eye shadows and a dual-ended eye shadow brush/eyeliner brush. The palette was designed by Bobbi to give you a subtle, neutral look for day and a bold, sparkling look for evening. Anyone who wants one palette to dabble, or amplify her classic daytime look with hints of browns and sparkling greens for a bolder look, is going to love this palette. I have one I adore. I featured the palette in October.

Here are some instructions from Bobbi Brown. Finish these eye looks with mascara.

For a bare look...
Sweep Navajo eye shadow as a base color from the lash line to the brow bone using the eye shadow brush. Then, dust Cement eye shadow as a medium color on the lower lid up to the crease. For a pop of color, sweep Champagne Quartz into the inner corner to reflect light.

For a bold look...
Sweep Navajo eye shadow as a base color from the lash line to the brown bone using the eye shadow brush. Dampen the brush and apply Champagne Quartz into inner corner of the eye. Then, take Evergreen Sparkle eye shadow into the middle of the eye and blend well. Next, create an outer V to smoke out the eye with Quarry Shimmer Wash eye shadow. Pick up Caviar eye shadow onto the eyeliner side of the brush and line the upper and lower lash lines.

The compact includes these shades, along with the brush.
  • Navajo, a creamy pink
  • Cement, a gray beige
  • Champagne Quartz Metallic, a golden peach pink
  • Quarry Shimmer Wash, a shimmery taupe
  • Evergreen Sparkle, a teal gray
  • Caviar, a black brown
How can you enter to win this contest? Easy! Just leave a comment here once. After you comment, feel free to send me an e-mail at bestthingsinbeautycontests@gmail.com and identify your comment. You can never be too careful about sharing an e-mail address you care about on a blog, so feel free to follow this step (an alternative is to code your e-mail, e.g., myname at gmail dot com, in your comment).

You can "earn" a second entry by tweeting this contest. Just make sure to include "@BTiBeauty" (without the quotes) in your tweet. I will tweet the contest later today, and you can simply retweet it to earn that second entry. You can earn a third entry by following the blog - either here or on Twitter (any entrant who is already a follower will automatically earn the follower point, but you can save me time by telling me you're a follower in your comment). I can't track followers through a third-party service, so you need to be on Google's list for me to verify the entry.

The deadline for entries will be Saturday, June 4, at midnight. The next morning, I will use a random number generator (random.org)to select the winner. I will e-mail the winner at that time. The winner will have 48 hours to reply to my message and provide a shipping address. After 48 hours, the prize will be forfeited, and another winner will be selected. Make sure to check your e-mail - and look in your spam folder after the contest ends.

The contest is open to residents of the U.S. and Canada. Good luck!

These colors look so versatile. I love the grayish teal. I bet that would look very flattering with the neutrals. Lovely palette.

WOW. What a gorgeous palette. I have always been a big fan of Bobbi Brown Make up particularly her palettes. But last year, although the palettes looked beautiful, the make up, in my opinion, had no staying power. These colors look absolutely gorgeous particularly the aqua/green. This is one nice palette and extremely versatile. Good luck to all and thank you Charleston Girl for offering your fans another gorgeous giveaway. Hope everyone enjoyed their holiday.

What makes the Bobbi Brown palette BARE TO BOLD so versatile is the range of colors that give looks from "demure" to "WOW!" That is what I look for before I purchase an item is it s versatility from day to night looks. This palette provides both -- and shimmers also! I'm excited to use these eye shadows for many occasions!!

Liz said...

I love how wearable Bobbi's eyeshadows are, and this is a really pretty group of them!
