As we journey up north for our anniversary dinner at Miyake in Maine, we passed by the factory outlet. One of the must go to place is the Cosmetics Company Store, and I ended up scoring a few eye shadow quads. The past season (or even current!) limited edition eyeshadow palettes caught my attention immediately!
I got 2 Bobbi Brown eyeshadow palettes for myself and 2 MAC's for my other friends overseas :)
If you follow my blog earlier, I actually got this exact same Sparkle Glamour Quad for Momo-chan. (Actually I found 2 of the 3 items I ordered for her from bobbibrown.com 20% off F&F event and the price at the outlet was further 10% lower. However, there were full sized GWP that came with my online order so actually I didn't pay that much more... haha saying this to make myself feel better for overpaying!)
I have been contemplating if I should get this BB Quad for myself but since I see for $28 (originally $40 on Bobbi Brown's website) and it's limited edition, I MUST GET IT!
And an added bonus, "Handmade individually in Italy." Wow, an handmade eyeshadow? That's luxurious, and they are from Italy! I like how they said, "Please handle with care" haha!
Also at 30% off retail, the other Bobbi Brown eyeshadow quad I got is the Sultry Eye Palette, which is also a limited edition (I am such a sucker for limited edition!) and last month they were still available online but now it's all sold out There were 2 other similar eye palette available (Smoldering Eye Palette and Smokey Eye Palette I believe) but I think this one I picked up is more versatile and flattering for my eyes. I think I have been making up long enough to know what colors work best for me!
I will be reviewing the above 2 Bobbi Brown palettes individually in another blog posts.
And I also got 2 MAC eyeshadow palettes in plum and purple hues, but they will be sent overseas for my friends.
This is the 2010 Tartan Tale Holiday collection. I believe this palette was named "6 Beauties Play It Cool Eye Kit." I tested it out with the testers and they are not shimmery and they will be perfect for the office.
I found a swatch online from Kalasugar to show you girls the color:

And this I believe is the limited edition from the year before, by the name of "Sorceress eye palette"
I found swatches from older blog posts from loveblendnbeauty:
Top Row: White Rabbit - Hold my Gaze - Edge of Dark
Bottom Row: Magnetized - Hypnotizing - Altered State
That's pretty massive haul for me, to haul 4 high end eyeshadow palettes at the same time!
