I only picked up a few things at the Sephora VIB Rouge sale this month. But one of the highlights definitely had to be the Burberry Festive Complete Eye Palette in Gold Shimmer.
I already know I love Burberry eyeshadows. The Wet & Dry Silk Shadow in Pale Barley is one of my long-time favourites, so when I saw this quad I immediately knew I wanted to give it a try.
The packaging is beautiful. It’s the same traditional Burberry pattern, but with a twist. It’s GOLD! The shadows inside continue with the gold theme and include a base, two buildable shades and a darker colour you can use to define. All of the shades have a yellow-gold undertone to them, but somehow still look so unique.
The shadows, like all other Burberry shadows I’ve tried, are super smooth and blendable. These aren’t intensely pigmented, but that’s what I love about them. If you want build them up, you use them wet – with a little setting spray on a brush.
I like using these shadows both on their own, and combined with my favourite matte of the moment (Mac’s Malt).
I think this palette is going to be my go-to for this holiday season. In fact, I’ve already worn it every day since it arrived. I would give this a solid A. Great job Burberry!
