Lilac Rose Shimmer Brick. At the time, I wasn't able to get swatch photos of the Lilac Rose Eye Palette ($60). Finally, I have a few to show you! Fresh from the runway, Bobbi has paired heather grey with pops of bright pinks and purples in the Lilac Rose Collection, creating her own twist on this season's prettiest trends.
A modern take on spring florals, this mirrored compact features eight mix-and-match eye shadows in the season's most-wanted looks: heathery neutrals and dusty pinks designed to flatter all skin tones. The palette includes a range of textures, from Shimmer Wash to Metallic shades, for buildable color that blooms beautifully. With a deep charcoal shade that doubles up as an eyeliner too, this floral-inspired palette is our freshest pick for eyes.
Here is Bobbi Brown's shade chart.
Eye Shadow below is a gorgeous, lively taupe shade. These two shades are my favorites in the Lilac Rose Palette. Black Chocolate Eye Shadow was a good choice for the palette, with all the taupe and pink colors. It is dark enough to define the eyes, but doesn't have the edge of black. I don't really care for Dusty Lilac Eye Shadow at the bottom of my arm directly above. It's the kind of shade that makes me look tired and my eyes red.
