Just a little something from Burberry

Tuesday, January 15, 2013
I went on the Harrods website on boxing day (or just after) and I bought one of the relatively new Burberry eyeshadow quads. Compared to the single eyeshadows I think this quad is great value for money - a great buy if you don't already own any burberry eyeshadows like me. I bought this quad for £40 which is quite expensive but it is Burberry and it wasn't in the sale (cries).
Firstly, the packaging - gorgeous! The packaging looks expensive (probably because it was very expensive!) and the quad comes in a velvet pouch, like Dior palettes come in. The velvet pouch came with three application tools too. The quad itself feels really well made, it looks gorgeous and it has a mirror inside. 
 I bought the shade 'No.2 Mocha' and here are the application tools you get. A eyeshadow brush, a angled brush and a sponge applicator. I have used these briefly but as they are mini tools/brushes they are not that easy to use so I have just been using my normal real techniques/Illamasqua brushes to apply the eyeshadows. 
Here are the shades! I love neutral/natural/nude eyeshadows, I wear them every day and I bought this particular palette as I knew I would get a lot of use out of these shades. They are all basically matte or satin finishes - there are not frosty or glittery shades which I great for me personally as I mainly use matte shades on my eyes. There is a creamy bone shade, a caramel tan shade, a milk chocolate shade and a deeper brown - all of the shades are fairly warm toned. 

Overall, I love the packaging, the shades are gorgeous and the shadows are so smooth, creamy, very pigmented and they apply like a dream. I will post a full review about longevity etc in the next couple of weeks.

  16. Love the palette! I tend to prefer matte shadows over shimmer so this would be perfect. A tad too expensive though. x
