fallout

does not have fallout

i have experienced no fall out

- Nordstrom User

barely any fallout at all, and it is iridescent and beautiful

- Nordstrom User

blendability

blends well

the formula of these is absolutely incredible - creamy, buttery, pigmented, blendable, etc

- Sephora User

these eyeshadow are amazing - they have great pigmentation, awesome color payoff and blendibilty

- Nordstrom User

consistency

creamy

i bought one shadow in jet black 308 to put over kohl liner for smokey eye look, the pigment, creamy texture, and smooth application made me fall in love with this eye shadow

- Nordstrom User

nice easy to wear colour, soft buttery texture, blends well

- Feelunique User

creasing

not creasing

this shadow is highly pigmented and wears well all day (i do use a primer) without creasing

- Nordstrom User

pigmentation is quite good, blending is super easy, and i never have any creasing

- Sephora User

staying power

longlasting

creamy, non-irritating to my sensitive eyes (no fragrance), gorgeous colors and long-lasting

- Nordstrom User

the color has an amazing shine and lasts very well throughout the day

- Sephora User

pigmentation

sheer

you can cover your eyelids in a sheer haze of color, darken the color for an elegant, smoky look, or add some glimmer without harshness

- Sephora User

the colour shell is a great sheer wash of colour for us fair girls, but a great pop of gloss

Exemplary quality; Colors so-so

I'm giving this 5 stars because of quality. The review is divided by quality and color shades. Quality: The quality is to die for. Finely milled, not chalky at all, great color pay off, and crazy easy to apply and blend. Really, the quality is everything you can wish for in an eyeshadow. Pillowy soft, but with zero fall-out. And its one of those rare breed of shadows that claim wet or dry application and actually deliver on that claim. The wet application is super smooth and the color is intense. Colors: I got Mulberry, Pale Barley, Rosewood, and Midnight Brown. Pale Barley: This is a much hyped color, however I have dupes in several brands, so it's not unique enough to justify the expense. It's an exact dupe of Too Faced "Birthday Suit" in their Naked Eye palette on my skin (NC15--I know shadows show up differently on different lids). In the pan it looks like a medium depth taupe-mauve which has gold/warm shimmer. I've seen photo reviews where it looks really golden and light on some people. On me, it was pretty much a light-medium brown. I will say the quality makes it much better than its dupes--it has a dimensionality that the dupes don't have. But if you have dupes, it may not be worth the hefty price tag. If you don't, then I would recommend it. RoseWood: Another people rave about. I just don't find the color at all special in any way. I don't get the hype. It's going back. There are so so many colors out there like this. Again, if you don't have a dupe and love the color, by all means, the quality is excellent. Mulberry: Really love this color. It's very deep in the pan, much deeper than the photo. But it goes on sheer-er and can be built up. On NC15 it leans more burgundy/wine than mulberry. Cool tones may find it leans more mulberry on them. However, even though it leans burgundy, it does not look like weird red eyes. It's extremely flattering and perfect for fall. Midnight Brown: There's not much more I can add to reviews here on this color. It's a keeper. It's a truly neutral brown that I can see leaning warmer on warm undertones or cooler on cool undertones--very versatile. It's very rich, multi-dimensional with a hint of shimmer (very very refined and sophisticated/subtle shimmer--no sparkles and not a disco metallic look--it's the kind that makes it look like luxury make up) Overall, this is a luxury brand that lives up to the luxe hype. The quality is so refined and sophisticated and the packaging is gorgeous. Each shadow comes in it's own velvet pouch and the mirror is big for such a small container. Highly recommend. It's a splurge but it delivers on its high cost. A note to Burberry: Bring back Midnight Plum!!! (Seriously folks, google that color. You will die. And then die again when you realize you can't buy it anymore.) <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>

Not a great green

After the discontinuation of a couple of gorgeous olive/khaki greens some years ago, I have been on a search for another--with no success. From drugstore brands to this very expensive one, the colors are either too glittery--not great for mature eyes--or muddy and dull. This one was muddy and went on uneven, leaving darker patches. I do use Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow as a primer and it works well, so I don't think it was my skin that was the problem. It might work for you, or maybe the lighter colors are prettier. My opinion is that price, in this case, did not mean the best color or texture.

Great product, would replace all my eyeshadows with Burberry if I could afford it!

I am in love with Burberry eye shadows! They make a wonderful range of wearable colors and that are soft, easy to blend, long-lasting and have minimal fall out. Honestly, I have used a lot of high end make up and these are the best I have used. A little eye lid primer and these babies last all day. Burberry shimmers are really subtle shimmer, more of a sheen - no glitter chunks! Pale Barley is a warm beige-y taupe with a soft shimmer/sheen when used dry, gets more metallic when you apply it wet. It makes a great all over lid color. Like all Burberry colors, it blends well but is pigmented enough to use as a stand alone color. I also love Midnight Brown (nice medium tone taupe brown with a little shimmer/sheen), Rosewood (light brown-pink-taupe shimmer, similar in depth of color to Pale Barley just more pinkish), and Nude Glow (similar to Barley with more shimmer/metallic sheen to it). I have my eye on a couple of matte colors as well. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="4209208252545380954-full" data-show="4209208252545380954-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>
