I received an email about Bobbi Brown’s latest launch – the Palette system that allows you to create your ultimate makeup kit. I was busy so I did not read the details, but I remember thinking “How nice! It would be nice to mix and match my own eyeshadows from Bobbi Brown”
Today, I had a little time so I surfed on over to Bobbi Brown’s site to see what the Palette System was.
Oh dear, I felt a little cheated when I saw what “customizing” meant to the people at Bobbi Brown.

All Bobbi Brown really allows you to “customize” is which palette you choose to purchase. All the palettes are pre-made and none of the colours are interchangable. I had the impression I could actually make my own palettes.
So, I’m upset over the rather misleading advertising. Further, I don’t think the colours or palettes are very special anyway. They look pretty much like the usual Bobbi Brown palettes and there isn’t any colour that particularly grabs my attention. The little pink case with its brushes does make my heart beat a little faster though but I don’t know if it’ll beat fast enough to compel me to buy it hehe…
Each item is sold separately so I wish they didn’t call this a kit, like it all came in one set or something. It’ll be great for any girl starting out with makeup, or maybe if you lost all the makeup you’ve ever owned and need a quick fix. Otherwise, I think its just a gimmick. Sorry all BB fans!
