Have you ever purchased something, and then lose it before you can use it, and randomly find it again? That is exactly what happened with this eyeshadow. I kept thinking about it, and with a $22 price tag for one shadow, I really didn’t want to buy a new one; then one day, I saw it on my bedroom floor. My guess is that it fell into my running clothes (along with a NARS lip pencil), because I found it when organizing my closet. Sheesh! Anyway, this is a really beautiful color, and the quality is fantastic too! 🙂
Although this is metallic, it isn’t overwhelmingly so. It is subtle, as Bobbi Brown is the queen of subtle and natural shimmer. The color is beautiful and unique. It’s kind of plum, kind of mauve, yet kind of taupe. I don’t have anything quite like this.
There is a touch of warmth in Velvet Plum when compared to other taupes that I have. The application with this shade is incredible. It is SO smooth and truly effortless to blend. This is a lovely color for all and would look gorgeous with just about every eye color since it is so neutral, but it will really make green and hazel eyes pop!
I have a few Bobbi Brown shadows now and am considering getting one of the palettes, but I like the portability of having individual shades too. We’ll see! 🙂 Do you have any favorite Bobbi Brown colors?
