Bobbi Brown Date Night Lip & Eye Palette

Wearing the new Bobbi Brown Date Night Lip & Eye Palette on my eyes and lips (that’s Berry Punch Lip Color)

Maybe I’ve passed the point of no makeup return, but when I think of date night, my first thoughts are usually something like, “Oooh, let’s pop two different colors in the crease,” or “I wanna layer these three liners for a smokey cat eye gradient, yeah!”

Then again, I do have a tendency to over-complicate things (says the woman who just mixed three different concealers to customize a color for her cheeks).

Bobbi Brown’s new $30 Date Night Lip & Eye Palette tries to keep things easy and streamlined, and even though I don’t usually equate paring down my makeup with date nights, I appreciate its simplicity, because sometimes those holiday palettes with, like, 25 different eyeshadows and 10 different lipsticks are just straight-up overwhelming.

Ready for date night

Sometimes it’s easier to make a decision when you limit your options, ya know? And I think that’s one of this palette’s strengths. It comes with just enough to put together a pretty date night look, and you can always incorporate other products if you feel like it.

The shades

You get three basic eyeshadows — a dark, pigmented matte black; a sheer matte ivory and a sheer, glittery taupe (for drama!) — as well as two lipsticks — a light pink and a bright magenta — and a shimmery shell pink gloss.

Nothing too fancy, but you know, who wants to do fancy all the time? It’s exhausting.

If you wanted to stick to just the colors in the palette, you could do a wash with the sheer ivory all over your lids, line your lash lines with the matte black, and buff them out with a pencil brush… Maybe also pat the sparkly shade on your lids if you’re into glitter.

I’m also wearing MAC Give Me Sun Bronzer (in my crease and on my face ), L’Oreal Blackest Black Infallible Lacquer Liner (lash lines), Ellis Faas Mascara (lashes) and MAC Margin Blush (cheeks)

I like to add a couple more things to make the look my own. For these pics, I patted the ivory all over my lids as a base, sculpted my eyes by sweeping a bronzer into the crease, and lined my upper lash line with a black gel liner, which I then smudged out with the palette’s black matte shadow.

Now that’s a look I’ll definitely wear with El Hub to the movies. :)

Simple, pretty packaging

As for the quality of products in the palette, I like ‘em. No problems with fallout from the shadows, not even the dark shade, which is a big plus, and the pigmented lipsticks and gloss last from 3-5 hours each.

I recommend Date Night for ladies (and gents!) with light or medium skin tone who wear cool and neutral shades well. Darker damsels and/or ladies who like warmer color temps may not get the most from these colors.

    The look you created with this palette is beautiful! I love cute little palettes like this, I wish the eyeshadows could make a whole look by themselves, so I wish it came with a good crease color.

    I LOVE how you did the eyeliner for this look!

  7. Lyric says:

    I really like this pallette minus the black eye shadow:/ I just never know how to use them other than to set my liner and I already have so many that I probably wouldn’t pick this palette up. It does look lovely on you though!

  8. Danielle says:

    I like how compact this is, but I’m not a fan of powder and cream in the same palette.

    I wish for a Rimmel liptick in French Kiss. If i would have known they were discontinuing my HG I’d have stockpiled it for the zombie apocalypse.
