Rou:Can you help me find a palette for my friend?

Hi, Rou (and anyone else who stumbled here),
My friend really wants a makeup plalette for Christmas but I'm stumped as to what to get her. She'd love an eye/cheek/lip palette but I haven't seen any that are suitable so I might get her two. She uses and likes MAC and Bobbi Brown.
Here are her specs: medium-toned African-American, dark brown hair and eyes, combo skin. She likes red or neutral lips and neutral eyes (f I buy her gray or purple she'll throw it at me :-) ). The Viva Glam lip palette looks nice but I have no idea where to start with the eyes. My other thought was the BB deep lip/eye set.
Thank you so much! You've been such a great help.

    darn!

    MAC has a gorgeous eye/lip/cheek palette this xmas, but it has purple in addition to neutrals!

    :(

    unfortunately, you can't see it on the website, it's only available at Pro Shops and The Bay in Canada.

    BB does have a face palette for eyes and cheeks available.

    too bad your friend won't expand her horizons because BB also has a GORGEOUS shimmering eye kohl palette with black, blue, purple and khaki shades.

    good luck!

    Thanks, Rou!
    Her biggest problem is everyone wants to put gray and purple on her and she wants to see how she looks with other colors. What I might do it have her go for a makeover at one of the counters so she can test drive a look. I do wish I could see that MAC pallete.
    What do you think about the M·A·C 7 ´Face Sparkle´ Holiday Palette for her coloring? (I'm so bad at this :D )

    that's the one i was talking about, i didn't know Nordies had it too! the colours are SO much better in real life.

    i'm thinking of getting it for myself!!!

    :D

    Showstopper is the darkest brown MAC has and it's a perfect liner and i think Beauty Marked is a beautiful burgundy purple.

    Thanks so much! I actually saw it on the Nordstrom's web site. They didn't have it in the brick and mortar store when I went there yesterday. I might just take the plunge and get it for her. I agree -- the picture on the site is pretty bad!
