A few months ago, the heavens parted and the angels sang to me about buying Burberry eyeshadows. I’ve wondered about these $29 a pop single eyeshadows ($60 for the quads) for a while but I’ve never been intrigued enough to pay that price tag for ONE eyeshadow. Then ttsandra (#girlcrush) just had to post the most beautiful MOTD pictures and WellTaylered let us all know about an amazing gift with purchase. I’m all about the gifts with purchase. And that was that.
Nude, Rosewood, Mulberry, Pale Barley
In my opinion, the Burberry eyeshadows are ultra luxe. The heavy packaging has the traditional Burberry pattern – it’s simply gorgeous. The silky smooth formula is amazing too. ‘Nude’ was the only one of the shadows in the ‘glow’ formula; the rest (Plum Pink, Mulberry, Rosewood and the much hyped Pale Barley) are in the ‘silk’ formula. I don’t really know (or care) about the formula difference, but I can tell you that Nude is my favorite. HANDS DOWN. It is possibly the most beautiful eyeshadow that I own.
The gift with purchase was…okay. Very nice by GWP standards, but it didn’t blow me away. My favorite is the beige bag with the Burberry imprint quickly followed by the red nail polish. I’m not a fan of the lip gloss because it’s heavily scented like eau de old lady. Yum.
In summary, after using these shadows for a couple of months, Burberry eyeshadows are beautiful. There are not any groundbreaking shades (except for ‘Nude’) but I wouldn’t expect anything crazy from Burberry. It’s a pretty neutral brand but with phenomenal quality and the esthetics suit me just fine. Is Pale Barley worth all the hype it receives? No, I don’t think so, but it’s a nice shade nevertheless (as are the rest). But if I could only recommend one item to you it would absolutely be ‘Nude’. I think this is a shade everyone should own and it’s worth every. single. penny.
Do you own any Burberry Beauty products? Is it worth the price?
