Tales of the CCO: Bobbi Brown Chrome Eye Shadow in Pewter

Friday, July 9, 2010
Last Monday, Mr. MakeupWithdrawal had the day off and graciously let me choose what activities the two us would enjoy that day. I opted for a trip into Pennsylvania, to go to a park with our dogs and that I might indulge my fascination of Amish and Mennonite culture. Me, being super sneaky managed to to convince Mr. M to let me run into a Cosmetic Company Outlet store in Strasburg on our way home (ok, not really, I also convinced him to drive out of the way for it) and picked up two goodies I had wanted for a very long time.
I had immediately spotted this shadow, Bobbi Brown Pewter and I can't tell you how pleased I was to finally have it. I have a thing for silvery colors, especially ones that aren't pure silver but look more tarnished and this fits the bill perfectly. It's one of BB's Chrome shadows, which I believe were limited edition. 
Crappy weather outside, so taken indoors with a natural light bulb!
I love the unique color, it's like a silvery olive. Really, it's got hints of gold, platinum and a slight sage color. I'm almost frustrated by my attempts to describe it because it's very complex. It stayed on all day today when I wore it, I might post FOTD pictures later!
 The pigmentation is great as is the texture, the best part is the amount of shadow that you get! BB pans are huge, and actually a good value. Especially considering that I paid $15.50 for Pewter (gotta love CCO prices!).
