I’ve been dying to get my hands on the Burberry Oxblood Kohl – I love red eyeliners so was keen to try it.
Burberry Oxblood Kohl is a deep, wine-y red with a pink base that looks absolutely terrible as a inner rim kohl (some reds really can look incredible there) – it’s exactly the right shade to make everyone think you have a terrible eye infection. It’s a whole other story on the lid though – but you need plenty of black (lashes, inner rims) to make it really work. I’ve worn it on my top lid as a liner over a dark grey shadow and it looks fantastic, and I’ve also worn it beneath my lower lashes and liked that look as well although you have to go strong just so there is no doubt it is meant to be there and you’re not just looking a bit the worse for wear.
I can’t say my in-store experience was good though – massive effort to up-sell despite the fact I’d said that the liner was all I wanted – in fact I was moved from the small stand into the main beauty room just in case I changed my mind (NO!) and then was asked to sit and wait for ten minutes while the assistant disappeared into a little room (presumably where the till point was) and then moved to another till when that wasn’t working. I understand about up-selling but no is no, right? It just felt too difficult to buy and I nearly left – except I have wanted this liner for ages so I stuck with it. The liner is pricey at £18 and it’s a little one, too, but I’m glad I have it.
