Bobbi Brown Moon Rock Long-Wear Eye Palette

The Good:
Pretty colors, my favorite eyeliner, small enough quantities of each color so it's not likely to dry out before I got a chance to use it, portable, great texture, long lasting (over an eye primer).

The Annoying:
What's with the brush? Despite what the picture above shows, the brush that came with my palette only has one side, the thicker one. It's too big to be effective for the eyeliners, but stiff and uncomfortable for cream eye shadows. Even an old school sponge applicator worked better than the brush (and I'm not above dipping my finger in the shimmery goo and going to town).

The Verdict:
The Moon Rock palette has been serving me well over the last month. It's my current staple for an elegant and fun evening look with a subtle shimmer. Its sister palette, Night Sky is just as pretty, but cool toned and the colors looked a bit too harsh on me.

Bobbi Brown Moon Rock Long-Wear Eye Palette ($55) is available online and from their department store counters. I got mine at Saks.


  1. You have to pull the cover off to reveal the thin eyeliner brush! x

  2. Anon, you're right. Apparently, the cover was stuck so tightly on mine that when I first checked to see if it was removable, nothing happened. I ended up using pliers to reveal the eyeliner brush. Still no help with the cream shadows, but what are fingers for ;) ?
