Burberry Eyeshadows in Khaki and Rosewood

Burberry eyeshadows are phenomenal. I bought these eyeshadows right before going out to dinner with friends and decided to open them at dinner, and everyone at the table was immediately impressed with the packaging. This stuff doesn't make me question that this is indeed luxury makeup. The container is a very sturdy (and heavy) metal that has a mirror and a magnetic enclosure. Gorgeous.

Burberry describes their eyeshadow as being an "innovative composition that reconciles comfort with long-lasting wear. Light, yet creamy, this performing powder offers optimal adherence and ensures a smooth application and flawless color fidelity throughout the day. Silicones provide extreme emolliency and comfort."

The two shadows I bought, khaki and rosewood are both very wearable colors. Rosewood is a pinky, metallic neutral that has a lot of dimension to it while khaki is a very brown based green (not a lot of yellow in this one at all). I love that they are both on the neutral plane so they can be worn in many looks. Both can be worn wet or dry. When wet, the rosewood gives off a more metallic finish. The eyeshadows are silky and a pleasure to use and these last all day.

I am so super impressed with the Burberry beauty collection. The products are incredibly impressive. these can be purchased at select Saks and Nordstroms or from http://us.burberry.com
