Giftables: Bobbi Brown Sunset Gold Collection

Bobbi Brown's Sunset Gold Collection is exclusive to Nordstrom and packs 4 shimmery essentials in a golden copper pouch.

I'm absolutely obsessed with Bobbi's Metallic Eye Shadows (see my previous raves here and here). They have a velvety texture that rivals Stila's shimmer shadows, but the shimmer in these is finer and a little more subtle. They're totally work safe in moderation, and can be built up (or mixed with a product like DuWop Payoff) for a bolder look.

Now, on to the giftiness: the price point of this set is just right, at $80. It's a perfect fit for those times when $50 seems too skimpy and $100 feels a bit over the top.

And the colors in this set are as close to universally flattering that you can get. Seriously, how can you beat sheer golds, shimmery nude, and brown? The contents:

  • Metallic Eye Shadow in Sunset Gold

  • Metallic Eye Shadow in Antique Gold

  • Glitter Lip Gloss in Bronzed Pink

  • Long-Wear Gel Eye Liner in Mahogany Ink

  • Golden copper faux-leather Mini Organizer
