This palette first caught my eye at the Myers counters last Christmas in Sydney. A palette which matches my colouring is a rarity so this went on my lust list. When I saw it on eBay for less than AUD60, I immediately bought it!
It may not look very exciting – functional palettes hardly ever do – but this has a firm spot in my handbag, 3 days out of 5.
Pictures speak louder than words so take a look at the swatches below.

Argh, I can't decide.
Truthfully, I don't see why the Pot Rouge is called Blushed Rose as the only brown-pink roses I have seen are usually half dried i.e. not fresh. That aside, this is a pretty sheer colour which is quite buildable. I prefer using this shade under Benefit's Dallas or with a light layer of SilkNatural's Crinoline (MAC Petticoat dupe) on top for some extra oomph.

You can't see it in the swatch but the glitter particles in Golden Topaz Glitter are on the big side. I am not really keen on the glitter so I rarely use it.
I doubt I'll be getting Pale Gold Shimmer and Pink Beige from Bobbi Brown once I finish them in the quad. Not because I don't like them but because I have swatched lookalikes in Stage Cosmetics!
I forgot to mention, these come housed in a Bobbi Brown custom palette so you can pop them in and out to use with other Bobbi Brown colours. Don't worry, these come with little individual lids to prevent contamination from powder products. Oh, and the palette comes with a lip brush.
The Bobbi Brown Lips & Cheeks to Go Palette retails for USD 60 and is an online exclusive from the Bobbi Brown website, meaning that only US residents can purchase it. Boo. As mentioned, I saw it in the Myers department store last year but I don't know if it is still available in Australia.
Anyone know where else this can be found?
