While I’ve really started to enjoy creating smoky eye looks from palettes again (even did a blue smoky yesterday!), I do like an easy win on the beauty front. These pearly sticks are exactly that.
If you have blue eyes, may I suggest that you grab the golden shade as soon as it launches! The Burberry Eye Colour Contour pencils that I have here are all gentle shades – easy wears on their own or as part of a bigger colour build. They’re soft, glidey and don’t drag at the skin on the lids, but I would recommend you wear a lid primer. I wore the gold shade last night with no primer and it did last – but I’d hesitate to put it though a 12 hour day.
I like an eye colour crayon – especially if you wear glasses or contacts and find it hard to be perfectly accurate with your eye shadow. It’s quite difficult to go wrong with these so I’d flag them as highly age inclusive. They’re not super high on the pearl – more of an eye gleam really; I’m struggling to find anything wrong with these! They’re called ‘Smoke & Sculpt’, but you’d need two shades really to smoke – it’s not really the right term for a single pen. Shades in the swatch above from bottom to top are: Midnight Brown, Rosewood and Pale Copper.
Unlike my Charlotte Tilbury eye pencils. These were totally my favourite eye products – used and used – and although other people had flagged up the loose lids, I’d never found it an issue. However, a rummage in the beauty drawer found this – the lid had come loose and off – and this dry thing is all’s that’s left. Painful as it is to un-recommend, when I’ve been so positive about these, I’d have to say hold your horses until the lid situation is sorted. It’s just not what I expect from the Tilbury brand and I’m really fed up about it – and sorry for not listening to what other people were telling me about these.
So, back to the Burberry gliders – they’re called ‘Smoke & Sculpt’, but you’d need two shades really to smoke – it’s not really the right term for a single pen. I’m really pleased to have these and I know I will use them a lot. They’re £23 each (7 shades) HERE.
