Burberry Sheer Eye Shadow Review

Burberry’s Sheer Eye Shadows offer some of the best shades around, my favourite for AW11 is ‘Almond’.

Not only is the colour perfect for every day wear and tapping into the coffee tone beauty trend, but it also works as a great base for achieving this season’s subtle take on the smoky eye.

Every Burberry eyeshadow comes complete with a good eyeshadow brush, which makes applying much easier. The texture is creamy at first touch, however it does turn more powdery as you apply, so watch out for overspill under your eye.

You’ll need to apply several layers to achieve the rich shade shown on the palette and unfortunately this product isn’t a stayer, so you will need to reapply.

It’s also worth bearing in mind that although the name mentions ‘sheer’, the finish is more matte.

Burberry Sheer Eye Shadow in ‘Almond’ is available from Harrods.com for £23.

Rating: 6/10 – Mixed reviews on this product, although it doesn’t live up to the hype, the amount of shade available alone is worth perusing the Burberry shopping aisle for.
