It's been a while since I last saw a theatre play and I'm kinda' missing it--acting, that is. I have left the world of theatre already, but I can't deny that there's still a part of me that's yearning to act in play. But then again, it's another master and that means I have to sacrifice more important things if I choose to do it so I think watching one would be good enough to quiet this artist part of me.
So tonight, I am watching King and I with my family. I think Leo Valdez and Monique Wilson are some of the most talented theatre actors in the world so tonight's definitely exciting! :D
I'm sporting an green eye color today courtesy of my Bobbi Brown Rich Caviar Palette-it's from her Holiday Collection of 2012.
BOBBI BROWN RICH CAVIAR EYESHADOW PALETTE IN DETAIL
Packaging is sleek, sturdy, and elegant. It comes with a dual ended brush and a big mirror. In my opinion, this is the biggest mirror I've ever seen in a handy palette. Finally, there is a handy mirror in this world that is actually very useful. :D
It also features a vintage logo of Bobbi Brown. I don't know if she has already changed her logo to this, but I think it's nice and fresh--she should use it this year for a change.

Here's the brush: It features a fluffier brush made from genuine animal hair which is best used with the matte eyeshadows, and the other one is made from synthetic bristles which is best used with the shimmer eyeshadows. Impressive! Bobbi really knows makeup like the back of her hand!
Top (L-R): Bone, Candlelight, Wheat
Bottom (L-R): Olive, Black Topaz, Rich Caviar
This palette has a good combination of shimmer and matte shades, and it can go from daytime to nighttime. They can be used wet or dry, but I prefer using them dry because they're pigmented anyway.
The eyeshadows have this uniform silky texture, except for Rich Caviar which is a little dry. But everything glides on easily with minimal to no fall out. Staying power is very good.
Here are the swatches, and what I think of them:
Bone- a matte cream shade that yields a medium but buildable finish. It's a great, natural- looking brow highlighter and lidwash for daytime.
Candlelight- a cream-champagne metallic shade. Finish is heavy, and I like the way it brightens up my peepers.
Wheat- a matte tan shade with a slight gray undertone and medium but buildable finish. This is my least favorite because I'm always having a hard time making it show up on its own, but it makes a great accent on darker eyeshadows. I use it on my inner lids and in conjunction with Rich Caviar for a neat daytime look.
Olive- A sparkle olive green eyeshadow with gold glimmers and a sheer finish. This is an accent color, and it's only meant to add a little twinkle and glimmer on your overall eye makeup look. In my opinion, Bobbi makes the greatest sparkle eyeshadows because they cling onto my skin easily, have little fallout, and don't need any special technique to make it appear decently on my eyes.
Black Topaz- a rich, satin black eyeshadow infused with micro gold glimmers. Ah, this one is a very nice color, and a good alternative to bold and striking matte black eyeshadows. It can be used for daytime because the gold glimmers aren't that noticeable once they're on the eyes.
Rich Caviar- A matte black-brown eyeshadow. It's workable texture makes this a great daytime crease color, and its heavy pigmentation makes this great for nighttime looks as well.
BOBBI BROWN RICH CAVIAR EYESHADOW PALETTE IN ACTION
On my creases: Black Topaz mixed with Olive
On my inner lids: Candlelight
On my browbone: Bone
The greenness of the palette truly makes it a must- have for 2013, since the color of the year is Emerald Green. It also comes in another variant, Black Pearl, and it has equally gorgeous and unique shades too. You might go and say that it's too pricey for a palette, but it's actually cheap considering that Bobbi's eyeshadows retail at P1,000.00+ individually. But in this palette, you get six eyeshadows at a fraction of the cost of six individual pans of eyeshadows. By the way, if you're interested, it's limited edition so go check it out now. :)
