Burberry make up has taken the make up blog o sphere by storm with incredible reviews and swatches of quite possibly the best take on a neutral make up that many have seen in quite some time, or thus far
I too fell for the luxury brand bug, with the growing claims of incredible quality and performance, I just had to see for myself what the fuss was about!
Housed in metallic gunmetal magnetic casings, these are in terms of packaging, gorgeously stunning. Then again, Burberry knows quite a few things about aesthetics.
It feels heavy enough to not feel cheap, you can tell when using these, just by looking at them the luxurious feel and quality
Burberry does not fly far from their brand imaging. Neutral colors, extremely and elegantly well done. I would describe their brand, make up line included as under statedly sophisticated. Some of the shades look a bit "meh" in the display, but when swatched, the smoothness, color payoff, texture, the whole sha bang is there!~ (putting it quite properly)
I purchased two eye shadows Pale Barley(right) and Midnight Brown (Left)
Let me just saw, when you swatch these, before you even see the color on your fingers you can feel the incredible smoothness and texture. The level is incredibly fine, and when you do swatch "wow" to the pigmentation
Is EXACTLY what I wanted MAC's Patina to be
(which looks horrendous on me btw)
This is mix of a cool gold mixed in with enough taupe or brown to not contrast harshly against my warm skin. An incredible all over the lid color, for us 1 shadow only girls
Was something I had swatched before, and was a bit ummm, hmmm, over
The color is a gorgeous rich brown with golden shimmer. The shimmer is not as easily seen on the eyes, again that subtly sophisticated sort of shimmer that comes out in fine quality products.
I umm-ed for a moment because I thought, it looks a bit dark, but I bit the bullet, apply it sometimes at my outer corner or lower lash line and it's called love people
I couldn't walk out without a blush right??
Tangerine is a peachy shade. It seems like a mix of slightly dirty peach because it seems to have the SLIGHTEST bit of brown tone in it, as if they made a peach blush and threw in a bit of MAC's Tenderling. The mix makes this incredible natural looking and if a human can blush peach ( which I know is impossible) the brown in it makes it just more human. The barely blushing peachy glow. You can tell it's a peach blusher, but somehow it got grounded before hitting "Peach blush on me" territory.
(I have yet to try it with the brush)
Incredible quality. People rave about these for a reason. A stunning array of beautifully packaged, and incredible quality product wrapped in shades of a neutral lover girl's dreams.
The price is high, absolutely.
Considering the quality, the brand, the packaging, and the amount of product you get, which is generous, this is where quality over quantity comes in.
I would have rather have 5 of these shadows and consider that my entire eye shadow collection, than a parade of 100 less quality ones. These are going to stand the test of time, and be used for just about any occasion.
Expect more Burberry from this blog in the future!
