Burberry Sheer Eye Shadow in Dark Sable #23 A/W 2012 Collection


This is my first foray into Burberry eyeshadows.  As in the case with a lot of people, I will first dip my toes into a brand by trying one product, and then it's all downhill from there - I will be drawn into trying more and more of their products.  This is definitely the case with Burberry.

Dark Sable #23 is one of three new Sheer Eye Shadows in the Burberry Autumn Winter 2012 makeup collection.  As expected from Burberry, it is a beautifully executed down to earth neutral shade.

Burberry Fall Autumn Winter 2012 Makeup Collection



Here in the UK, autumn/winter makeup collections usually do not launch until it is more weather appropriate towards end of August.  However, Harrods have already launched the new Burberry Autumn Winter 2012 makeup collection mid way through (our very lacking) summer.  I hadn't heard/read very much about this collection until I received a phone call from the Burberry counter at Harrods.

Lipstick of the day #21 - Burberry Lip Cover in Golden Peach #29


Having not tried the Burberry Beauty line previously, I was a bit late to the Burberry Spring collection.  So when I received a gift voucher, I promptly headed to the Burberry counter to try out the Lip Covers.  Lip Covers are the equivalent to the Rouge Cocos of Chanel - the main line of opaque pigmented lipsticks with satin finish.

I was drawn by the campaign photo of Cara Delevingne wearing #28 Devon Sunset.  At the counter I tried on Devon Sunset and #29 Golden Peach, and as much as I wanted Devon Sunset to work for me, Golden Peach suited my colouring far better.

Latest Purchases: Burberry Lip Covers Preview


I was interested in the Burberry line when it launched but never bought anything from them until now.  I think it was a combination of lack of colour choice (there were lots of colours but all much the same) and the packaging (it feels clunky to me).

But I finally caved in and bought two of the new Spring Lip Covers, Golden Peach and Primrose Hill Pink, which I will review in detail later.
