I seem to be on a party theme with the addition of the Extreme Party Eye Palette to my makeup wardrobe. At first glance it will make you think that the colors are similar to the Rich Caviar Eye Palette (read about it HERE). But it’s not the same really. The colors are super pigmented, build-able and easy to blend. It is such a value considering the nine shadows and 4 mini brushes included in the palette. Those brushes are not staying in the palette, they will be relocated to the makeup kit I keep inside my purse.

According to Bobbi Brown…

Like a jewel box, the Extreme Party Eye Palette contains nine luxe shadows designed to instantly make eyes look party-ready. It includes a highlighter shade, seven lid shades and a liner shade. Four professional-quality brushes – Eye Shadow Brush, Angle Eye Shadow Brush, Eye Smudge Brush, Eye Liner Brush – make it easy to apply the shadows like a pro. A mirrored compact goes everywhere you go.

Let’s check it out.

I can’t believe it’s so beautifully pigmented. It’s now available in-stores at Nordstrom but I don’t see it online. It will be available in November online at Bobbi Brown. I got mine in-store at Nordstrom for $75.

Petite Baked Eye Colour Trio in Smoky Metallics | Laura Mercier Holiday Colour Collection 2012 – pics and swatches

Previously I blogged about the other Petite Baked Eye Colour Trio in Golden Metallics (read about it HERE). Both are part of Laura Mercier’s Holiday Colour Collection for 2012 (read about my initial picks HERE). If you are not a fan of green, or your outfit clashes with the shades in Golden Metallics, or for whatever reason, Smoky Metallics is on the rescue. It matches anything and everything (in my opinion).
