The star of Burberry's Fall 2011 Collection is by far the sheer eye shadow in Midnight Brown. I'm not sure why Burberry has named their shadows "sheer eye shadows" because this shade is anything but sheer! Midnight Brown is a beautiful, complex deep brown with a faint shimmer. The shade is complex because it seems to have red undertones in certain lights and taupe undertones in others.
The packaging of Burberry's shadows is sublime! The shadow comes in a black pouch embossed with the signature Burberry plaid, and is encased in a heavy, metal case with magnetic closure. Of course the shadow itself is also imprinted with the signature Burberry plaid, and frankly it is almost too pretty to touch! The texture is soft, and buttery, making this shadow easy to work with. The color is perfect for the outer corner and crease to add dimension to any eye look. This will pair nicely with my vast selection of gold shadows!
For my first try of Burberry's cosmetics, I am pleased with the quality of the shadow and the color is too gorgeous too pass up! Burberry Sheer Eye Shadow in Midnight Brown (#21) is available at select Nordstrom's and Nordstrom's online. $29.00.
