If Tabs wasn’t so hell bent on mugging hard for the camera in these pics, it would probably be easier to appreciate the finer points of the new Bobbi Brown Rich Caviar Eye Palette ($47.50), like its mix of mattes, shimmers and glitters, or how its color palette of olive, gold, beige, taupe, gray and dark brown eyeshadows looks kinda like tabby coloring.

Even when I shoo’d him out of the shot, he still found a way to get in the frame (see the tabby tail in the lower right-hand corner?).

I always get weak in the knees for olive and gold palettes, especially ones with sumptuous shadows like these. They’re just so flexible, even if the colors themselves aren’t entirely unique. There’s enough here to mix and match for work and play looks, but if you already own something like the Hourglass Dune duo, MAC Sumptuous Olive, Brule, Woodwinked and Concrete, you probably already have colors similar to these.

    I would watch Cat Wars! And that eyeshadow palette does complement the Tabby accessory very nicely. I like the mix of mattes and shimmers.

  2. Marla says:

    Those colors look amazing on your eyes. I love the steel color mixed with the rich browns.

  3. Haha, I own the majority of the alternative shades you mentioned, but still I love this one to bits! It’s so nice to have so many of my favorite shades in one palette, and isn’t that little brush a breeze to use? 😉

  4. Luka says:

    That’s the best make up I’ve seen on you to date, you look great!

  5. Pretty, but I def have more than enough similar colors.

    Thanks for reviewing this palette. I was just staring at it on the Nordstrom website last night wondering how it looks on skin.

    And Tabs, happy Friday!

  7. Gah. These shades look amazing on you, Karen — I love that neutral-but-better eye! The shape feels very “rocker-chic” 😉

    I’m so excited to see this post. How did I miss it yesterday? I just got the palette a few weeks ago. I really like the colors. I’m very similar in coloring to you. I think that this palette is so flattering. I had been looking for a khaki palette for a while. I wanted the Dior Khaki Design Palette. But when I saw the Dior palette in person, I wasn’t impressed. This is so much better. My slight complaint is that I find these shadows slightly chalky. Do you, Karen? Is this the way all BB shadows are? I don’t current have an BB single shadows.
