Bobbi Brown Nude Drama Palette : Review, Swatches, Video Demo.

Bobbi Brown Nude Drama Palette Review, Swatches, Video Demo

Sephora US launched this Bobbi Brown Nude Drama Palette (Limited Edition) last week as a store exclusive - which means you probably can only lay your hands on it through direct purchase at Sephora Store (or Online store). I am not certain if non-U.S countries will eventually launch this; but in any case, you can try personal shopper websites.

This limited edition Bobbi Brown product at a significantly lower-than-its-regular-prices price point, undoubtedly is going to garner much attention.

Shade Names (from L to Right) : Ivory, Halo, Bonfire, Antique Rose, Sunkissed, Pink Bellini, Earth, Terracotta, Velvet Plum, Saddle, Black Sand and Espresso.


Every major makeup brand came up with their own neutrals eyeshadow palette, even Bobbi Brown itself (this is like its third one, I think?) so this is nothing new really. However, with Bobbi Brown's huge success with its predesssor Nude on Nude palette, it's only natural that they want to replicate that success by formulating an improved & more expansive version.

Fans of pinkish nude/rose brown will adore this high quality square nude pink case that neatly houses 12 shades. Quite a handy casing, light enough for travel, fitted with a mirror huge enough to see the whole face and not just the eyes.

12 shades in total ranging from cream, nudes, orange, rose, taupe, to light and dark browns. It is a good blend. This palette basically got you all covered, if you are into neutrals. With the inclusion of Espresso, you don't even need an additional eyeliner.

Texture & Quality
5 shimmering (some have bigger speckles than others and these are the so-called 'sparkle' finish), 5 mattes and 2 metallic finishes; with the mattes mostly sculpting shades like brown... which I LOVE! Powders are considerably smooth like the usual Bobbi Brown shadows.

Price: USD59. For a high-end brand like Bobbi Brown well-known for its quality, this is rather value-for-money as you get 12 shades for that price. Single colour pans/pots already set you back by about USD26.

Ease of Use
Some of the shades are not super pigmented. Certain matte shades doesn't adhere to the brushes. Eg: Ivory and Antique Rose don't show up on me without heavy layering. Shades with larger shimmers have potential for fallouts - this problem gets exacerbated when you don't use a good brush. Some may also find the sparkle shades a little too glittery. That said, I still find the shades glide on smoothly and look very pretty on the lids. Bonfire, Sunkissed, Pink Bellini is way up my makeup alley.

Needless to say, Bobbi Brown shadows has great staying power.

Will I recommend this purchase?

Yes, if you're a fan of Bobbi Brown or if you're looking for a good-quality, easy-to-use, comprehensive eyeshadow palatte that takes you from day to night.

No, if you're a hardcore beauty junkie who owns countless neutrals eyeshadow palettes OR if you're into densely pigmented eyeshadows, you will not fall for this. I'd say, go for Too Faced (much cheaper) or Urban Decay (similar prices and unbeatable shades & pigmentation).
