Burberry – Glow Shadows in Nude (002) and Shell (003)

When I saw the new Burberry wet/dry shadow formula, I pretty much brushed them off thinking that they weren’t really special and that I didn’t need them. Then, when I was out shopping I decided to peek into the Burberry store and see them for myself. I walked out with two of the new Glow formula. Whoops.

The packaging is standard beautiful Burberry. Metal packaging with their standard chequered pattern on the outside and on the shadows themselves.

Shell definitely reminds me of the champagne-y shade in Tom Ford’s Nude Dip, which means it’s also similar to MAC’s All That Glitters. It’s just slightly richer when foiled. At first I thought that Nude reminded me of the taupe in the Nude Dip quad, but when foiled it has a much stronger metallic shift to it. As you can see in the first set of swatches, there’s a little bit of fall out when you use them dry.

One thing I was really worried about was whether or not the shadows would blend when used wet. To my surprise, they blended beautifully, and I’m very impressed. Another plus is that even if you foil with a setting spray, the shadows don’t form a hard film over them.

Here’s an eye look I did with the shadows. I also used MAC’s Brule, Kid, and Handwritten.

    These look so beautiful! I think I might cave and buy one because I first saw essiebutton on youtube rave and then seeing them on you ā¤ šŸ™‚

  2. Ooo these are so pretty! I love wet/dry shadows, but sometimes it’s hard to find ones that don’t get that weird spot after you’ve used it wet once or twice. I don’t think I could use these and ruin the pretty pattern haha

      Thankfully these don’t get that crusty hard spot! Messing with the pattern is definitely sad, but I refuse to buy something solely for the pressing pattern because then I’d have SO much makeup I just don’t use.

Tell me what you think!
