Burberry Sheer Eye Shadow in Midnight Brown review & swatches


Burberry sheer Eye shadow in Midnight Brown

I'm a huge fan of Burberr Sheer Eyeshadow as not only do they look pretty, but boy, they do deliver. So when strawberrynet offered me an extra 10% off discount, combined with my regular loyalty discount I figured that was a now or never situation and grabbed the most wanted one from the entire line, Midnight Brown.

When it arrived I was more than surprised as I'd thought this would be more of a blackened brown, as the name suggests. Actually it turned out to be way lighter than Taupe Brown, which in turn surprised me with how dark it was. What's more the shade seemed way outside my favourite colour range, too warm and too golden. To me this shade looks like barley brown with intense shimmer. 
Feeling quite disappointed, I gave this eyeshadow a go and resentment turned to real love. To my astonishment the shade looked beautiful even on my cool-toned complexion, and what's more this eyeshadow didn't need any other shades to create a stunning look. I just patted it all over the lid and smudged below my eyes, blended out the edges, added some liner in the outer corner to intensify the look a bit and got the most amazing result!

The quality of this eyeshadow is second to none. It seems a bit dry and crumbly to touch, its shimmer feels almost like glitter, but it goes on incredibly smoothly on the lid, blends like heaven, delivers highly pigmented, beautifully shimmery colour and lasts all day. 

Despite the initial disappointment, Burberry Sheer Eyeshadow in Midnight Brown quickly became one of my favourite single eyeshadows ever. This eyeshadow is definitely a winner of the most misleading name of all times as there's nothing sheer nor midnight brown about it.
