À la carte colour

Makeup palettes are crowd pleasers for obvious reasons. They’re portable, offer one-flip access, and the synchronized colours can be just dazzling.

But have you ever carted around a cumbersome lip palette for that one redeeming shade of berry gloss, or worn down that sandy eyeshadow to its casing while the slew of tropically-bold shades remained in their virgin state? So annoying.

Thankfully, Bobbi Brown has caught wind of our frustration and created the Customized Palette. Select from one of the empty mirrored palettes in three, four or six pan sizes and the fun starts. Choose from dozens of gorgeous eyeshadows (in matte, shimmer wash and metallic) and two blush finishes (the standard and the shimmery version). Shades can easily be transferred from their flip-top casings into the pan in a jiffy. Comes in handy if you’re running low on your standby shadow or have a hankering a lilac liner.

Not sure what colours will wake up your eyes and give your cheeks the most desirable flush? No problem. Bobbi Brown artists are on hand to walk you through oodles of colours and textures, creating a personalized combination that ensures a knockout finale, every time.

While you’re at it, (and since the palettes are some slim and sleek), why not create a version for weekends, glamourous soirees, stuffy work events, drinks with your other half…

I wonder if it's only available at those stores because I was just at B.B. the other day and didn't see palettes. *frustrated*
