Its the day after the day after Christmas (LOL), and so before I get too much into makeup, let me just wish you a very Merry Christmas wherever you are. Hope you all had a good day/night with your loved ones... I know I did! The loot this year included some goodies from Peter Alexander, Glasshouse, Kikki K, some candy and a masterchef cookbook! ^.^
Recently, Claire had purchased for me some Burberry beauty goodies (Burberry Beauty is not currently available in Australia) and so far, every single product I have tried/swatched has blown me away.
Today I will be posting on three Burberry eyeshadows that I currently own - Trench (#02), Rosewood (#09) and Midnight Brown (#12) and an Edward Bess eyeshadow in Night.

- Edward Bess Night - lovely texture, lovely pigmentation, but swatches and applies poorly on eyelids... This one is a pass, I'm afraid. It will work well as a liner, so all is not lost :)
- Burberry Midnight Brown - best eyeshadow texture , sheer pigmentation, smooth and even application. The colour is divine - medium brown with shimmer that gives a luminous effect.
- Burberry Rosewood - in terms of quality, this one is just like Midnight Brown. The colour is interesting... On me, its a pinky, mauvy light brown.
- Burberry Trench - AMAZING eyeshadow. This one I can not fault. Great for browbone highlight, or as a lid shade for a classic, simple office-appropriate look.
Update - 26/02/2012: I wore Midnight Brown out for the whole day today (7.30 am till 7.30 pm) and I saw little to no creasing and no fading of the eyeshadow at all. WOWZA! Note that I wear all my eyeshadows over Shu Uemura Cream Eyeshadow P Beige as a base/primer.
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
