I’ve got to admit that I was a little disappointed when I first saw the Burberry Beauty Autumn 2014 Slate Blue Palette – blue is really hard to wear for any shade eyes or tone without it all going a bit 1980s. However, once I’d swatched it, I completely changed my mind!
There’s enough grey and lavender in these shades to make it very interesting indeed – a far cry from the throwback I had in mind! The shades are naturally smoky so it’s one easy smoky eye – I’d still want to pile loads of black liner over it, but an easier smoky eye look I can’t think of. As you can see, there is a little fall out – I used the sponge applicator for the swatches (one swipe, so they’re beautifully pigmented) but the palette also comes with two other brushes. Generally, applicators that come with palettes are a last choice, but actually, I think the Burberry ones are pretty good.
Although I still don’t love the Burberry polish formula (takes forever to dry), they’ve got some very enticing shades for Autumn. These polishes had an early release in March as a set (above) but now they’re available individually. The one that’s everyone is mad for is Oxblood; a deep red. They’re £15 each and the set is £90.
