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.
Price: $29 for 0.06 ounces, or $483.33/oz
For comparison purposes, NARS Dual Intensity shadows are $29 for 0.05 ounces ($580/oz) and Tom Ford’s Eye Color Duos are $60 for 0.13 ounces ($461.54/oz).
