Bobbi Brown Sand Tortoiseshell Eye Palette

San Tortoiseshell ($60) is a neutral palette with eight mattes and metallics. While the packaging is simply stunning, I'm actually torn with the shadows. I'm not sure if they fully convince me. A couple of the shadows, Ivory and Black Chocolate, aren't very pigmented and feel quite dry. For something that cost $60, two bad shadows won't cut the mustard. I wish Sephora carried this in stores so I could have swatched it first, I probably wouldn't have gotten it. The metallics are beautiful though, very beautiful. 

Description from

Ivory (matte creamy white), Hot Stone (matte taupe), Terracotta (matte peachy beige), Antique Rose (matte soft dusty rose), and Black Chocolate (matte dark brown) Metallic Eye Shadow in Desert Sand (ivory beige shimmer) and Sandy Rose (silver taupe shimmer) Sparkle Eye Shadow in Gold Bar (sparkling pale gold)

I had to really scrub Ivory and Black Chocolate to pick up anything and they're still sheer

3 out of 5 stars for me. Thanks for reading!
