FOTD with Burberry Complete Eye Palette in Plum Pink (+ swatches)

(L): Complete Eye Palette in Plum Pink  (R): Bright Poppy Lip Velvet


 I wanted to do a FOTD with one of my newest beauty acquisitions, Burberry's Complete Eye Palette in No. 06 Plum Pink.  Just like typical Burberry beauty fashion, these shadows are so finely-milled and creamy that they're a dream to apply (and blend)!  The shadows are semi-sheer in one swipe but buildable on my medium-tan skin.  Though I say semi-sheer, this doesn't mean that they aren't pigmented.  The shadows, just like the singles, allow you to build color from a sheer wash of lilac to a bold plum.  This quad really does allow you to achieve that effortless Burberry eye look of a smokey wash of color.  I felt that each shade was easy to work with, although the brown shade was just the tiniest bit dry compared to the other three but not enough to bother me.

For your reference, I took several pictures of swatches because I think that even the slightest angle alters the color just a bit.  Each shade was swiped twice without a primer.  Click on any of the pictures to enlarge.

I thought that the Plum Pink quad would pair beautifully with my Burberry Lip Velvet lipstick in Bright Poppy.  I used the lipstick as a blush as well, applying it to the apples of my cheeks as I would a cream.

  2. Oh sweet!
    Burberry Complete Eye Palette, no. 06 plum pink looks so good on your eyes. I would love to try it out since your eye color is so close to mine. On the other hand, Burberry Lip Velvet lipstick in Bright Poppy looks a little dark to my taste but it looks so pretty once applied.
    Thanks for the wonderful review. :)
