The introduction of Burberry make-up to Sephora Poland coincided with their 20% off offer, which I decided to take advantage of and ordered 2 of their items. One of them is their new Eye Colour Cream in the shade Damsel.
The packaging is as gorgeous as always with Burberry, a clear plastic pot with a charcoal gray Burberry checked lid represent the class and style of the brand.
The product itself may surprise those who expect a cream eyeshadow within the vein of MAC Paint Pots or Maybelline Color Tattoos and their likes. The texture is buttery and somewhat spongey and bouncey, but cream it is not. Perhaps the name of the eyeshadow refers to how it applies as it goes on much creamier than powder eyeshadows. This eyeshadow is closer to cream-to-powder hybrid eyeshadows by Armani, Chanel or Dior than typical cream eyeshadows. There's a brush attached, but I prefer dome-shaped brushes to distribute and blend out the product.
Damsel is a plum shade which keeps the right balance between the bright and the muted autumnal purple. It's not completely matte, but its irridescence is barely there. There's a kind of satin sheen to the product. It blends well and lasts at least 8-10 hours over a primer. This looks great on its own or paired with other eyeshadows.
I really like the product and the shade and I keep playing with it all the time, but I don't think I'll purchase more as the formula isn't revolutionary enough to make me interested.
