Review: Bobbi Brown Marrakesh Chic Collection Rich Color Eye Shadow

This Autumn, Bobbi Brown has launched the new Marrakesh Chic Collection in Australia with new and limited edition shades of smoky and shimmery eye shadows and berry lip colours which were inspired by her trip to Morocco, capturing the beautiful rich colours and bohemian vibe of the country. 

Bobbi Brown- ‘A few years ago, I travelled to Morocco with my husband for our anniversary. It was an amazing trip and I was inspired by so much that I saw there, especially the rich, earthy colors that dominated the cityscapes and the rural vistas that we travelled through. As soon as I got home I started developing ideas for a seasonal collection featuring a new eye shadow, based on what I had seen and experienced there.’ 

The Marrakesh Chic Collection features 4 new lip color shades: Creamy Lip Color in Pale Plum (soft rose), Rich Lip Color in Desert Rose (heather rose), Lip Color in Desert Plum (rich berry, limited edition) and Metallic Lip Color in Violet Glaze (bright pink orchid, limited edition) and 8 new and limited edition Rich Color Eye Shadows in Rich Slate (deep silver grey), Pink Silk (heather pink), Wine (brown plum), Rich Kashmir (slate brown),  Coffee Bean (rich brown), Royale (rich purple), Desert Lily (light violet) and Sand Dune (pale silver grey).

Top L-R: Wine, Rich Kashmir, Rich Slate, Coffee Bean Bottom
L-R: Desert Lily, Sand Dune, Pink Silk, Royale 

Bobbi Brown eye shadows have always enthralled me with their wide variety of shades and finishes that I was utterly amazed that they released the Rich Color Eye Shadow with a new eye shadow formula. The formula of these new eye shadows is a hybrid powder-to-cream eye shadow which gives a sheer wash of intense color and a satin finish. These eye shadows have been claimed to maintain their color intensity and last for 12 hours. 

I have the Rich Color Eye Shadow in Sand Dune, one of the lighter and common base shades in the range, and I am seriously impressed with this eye shadow! The formulation is unique and the quality and overall staying-power is fantastic! Sand Dune is an intensely pigmented oyster grey shade which applies on smooth and gives a beautiful shimmery silky satin finish. I sometimes apply Sand Dune to the inner corners of my eyes, along the lower lash line or as an all-over eye shadow. Sand Dune is a versatile shade that it compliments almost all other eye shadows I own to create a gorgeous smoky eye. I have worn this eye shadow a few times for up to 10 hours and at the end of the day there were no signs of creasing or smudging. The eye shadow just stays put, didn’t budge nor fade/smear.

Bobbi Brown Rich Color Eye Shadow has a unique formula which provides a beautiful and long lasting finish with outstanding results. The Rich Color Eye Shadow line is limited edition and I really hope this new formula will be seen again in future with a wider range of shades available.   

Bobbi Brown Rich Color Eye Shadow retails for A$48, Creamy Lip Color, Rich Lip Color, Lip Color and Metallic Lip Color retails for A$44. The Marrakesh Chic Collection is available online and on counters.

What are your thoughts on the new Marrakesh Chic Collection? Which Rich Color eye shadow shade would you love to try?
