Bobbi Brown Secret to Stanout Eyes Set turned up during the Nordstrom anniversary sale and is still available online.  The set includes a limited edition eyeshadow palette, full-sized Bobbi Brown long-wear gel eyeliner in Black Ink, full-sized smokey eye mascara, as well as a mini ultrafine eyeliner brush.  The eyeshadow palette is the typical Bobbi Brown neutral-shimmer mix, and while I find the colors quite repetitive, I do understand the value of a good, basic eyeshadow palette.  I just am not too impressed by some of the eyeshadows in the palette, though.  Scroll on for more swatches.

Stonewash is a matte shade, but it is listed as "shimmer wash" on the Nordstrom website - not sure why.

The colors in the palette are a mix of soft matte shades, some shimmer washes that can be patted on over a base eyeshadow for added dimension, and a couple of dark shades for darker, smokey looks.  There is a nice mix of warm and cool tones in the palette and some good transition colors.  I did find some of the shadows difficult to swatch, though, especially the first cream shade that didn't even show up on my skin.  It could be because the tester had been left open for a while, but I amn't too sure about that.  Do check this eyeshadow set at the counter if you are on the lookout for a simple, basic eyeshadow palette with some easy-to-wear shades.
