I was initially looking at the new Greige palette (when it comes to eyeshadows, I am on autopilot and look at cool smokey ones), then I realized what's missing from my eyeshadow collection is warmer, rosy shades. Telluride Eye Palette is a perfect rosy neutral palette. I don't normally like eyeshadow palettes in long rectangular cases with more than 4 colors, but this one I enjoy. It is like a essential version of NAKED 3. Better quality, too.
This is not a big palette. It feels slender and sleek yet sturdy in hand.
This palette has a really well-thought-out color composition. I love that there are enough light and medium shades to blend out the deeper ones. The colors are in different finishes, which makes it easier to create multi-dimensional looks.
There are 4 matte, 1 metallic, 1 shimmer and 1 microglitter shades in Telluride Eye Palette.
It was frustrating to take the swatch pictures because no matter what I do I couldn't come up with something that would do justice to these pretty eyeshadows.
All the matte colors (Cream, Woodrose, Antique Rose and Smokey Brown) are beautifully blendable with minimal powder kick-ups (please note that Cream doesn't show up well only because there is a very little color contrast against my arm). And the metallic shade (Velvet Plum) and the shimmery wash (Heather Rose) are very rich and pigmented. The sparkle shade, Blazing Star is the least pigmented one with a harder texture, but it is meant to be used as a sheer top wash, which is similar to microglitter top coats included in those Japanese eyeshadow palettes.
The dual-ended brush is nice as well.
The stiff side is handy to line and define with the darkest brown color as well as the soft side for blending the medium shades.
It is a pleasure to use Telluride Eye Palette. I've easily come up with a few combinations for refined smokey eyes with tender rosy hues. It seems the Telluride 2015 collection was introduced for summer, but let me tell you it works rather perfectly for autumn.
For this look, I used 4 colors from the palette.
1. Velvet Plum on lid space
2. Antique Rose as a blending shade
3. Smokey Brown on outer corners and lower lash lines
4. Blazing Star for a sheer top wash
(That white powder in my brow? That's sunscreen. :-/)
Here is an overall look with Telluride Eye Palette.
Overall, I am very happy with my purchase and would highly recommend this palette to anyone looking for soft rosy neutral colors with versatility.
Thanks for looking!
I feel like I've just discovered the brand (after all these years, I know. It's funny.) as well as eyeshadows with warm pink undertones.
Do you have a favorite from Bobbi Brown?
What are your go-to rosy neutral eyeshadows if any?
