"I was excited to see a palette that contains several shimmery golds. I have a fair cool toned complexion and therefore gold eye shadow can be tricky on me if it is too yellow and/or too frosty. These shades just add a glow without being overly shimmery, so they are perfect for day and can be dressed up with darker shadows in the crease for evening looks. The golds are somewhat toned down and yet they still have enough impact to impart a soft and subtle flattering effect. I am very happy with this palette, the shadows blend well and are finely milled with very little fallout. It will be perfect for the holiday season and beyond."
"I was afraid to buy this since I have fair skin and blue eyes, but since I adore Bobbi's palettes I would give it a try. On first sight, the colors look to be on the warm side, but they are a subtle warm and can work for all skin tones. I love that Bobbi had put some of the sparkle formula shadows in her palettes, they make a nice addition to put a bit more oomph on your eyes. The brush in the pallet is a nice addition, it makes this more travel friendly."

Review 3 for Old Hollywood Eye Palette
Great Palette, Not so Great Price
Date: March 6, 2014
"This palette was okay, I don't care for how sparkly half the shadows were and the included brush might as well be thrown away. I love BB products but will be returning this item as it's not worth the price tag."
"The colors in this palette are gorgeous. Some matte, some shimmer, some sparkle. The sparkle shadows in these smaller palettes allow you to add that touch of glamour from day to evening. The shadows are highly pigmented so a little goes a long way. Well worth the price."
"This is my favorite eye palette ever, from any line. The liner in the lower right hand corner is a super glittery blackish grey and pops my light eyes. The brown in the middle is so complimentary, natural yet it pops. The rest are just fun to play with - in the crease, inner corner, below the eye, under the eyebrow. I use this every single day. They are highly pigmented and well worth the price."
