Burberry Complete Eye Palette

Burberry Complete Eye Palette ‘Smokey Grey’ £40*

I’ve tried the lipsticks, eyeshadows and bronzer/highlighter from Burberry’s new makeup line and I’m completely sold and impressed by the whole line – they’ve done a great job. The packaging is gorgeous and the quality of the products lives up to expectations. 

Burberry have a long list of new products launching in November and today I’m showing you their first ever eyeshadow palette. You may think £40 is quite a lot for an eyeshadow quad but each of their eyeshadows are £22.50 so this is actually a really great and affordable way to try four of their shades if you were thinking of doing so anyway. The palette comes cased in a pretty pouch with 3 cute and handy eyeshadow brushes. I don’t usually use the brushes that come with palettes, but these do seem better than most so I will be giving them a go. The design of the shadows in the palette is really different for a quad and  I think it looks really chic. 

They come in six different shades ranging from greys, to neutrals, to more Autumnal warmer shades. I think the one that looks like it would be my favourite is the middle bottom row – gorgeous colours! 

The one I am showing you today is ‘Smokey Grey’. This includes a matte black (good for liner), a matte grey, a shimmery gunmetal grey and a pretty ice white (perfect for highlighting). The quality of the shadows are great, I’ve used them before and been really impressed. 

If you already spend quite a lot on makeup then this is a great way to introduce yourself to Burberry eyeshadows and it’s also a great gift (hello Christmas!). 

I’ve already seen these on the Burberry counters. Will you be asking for one this Christmas?

    Damn, they all look very warm toned browns to me? I was hoping Burberry would bring out some cooler toned browns. They look a bit meh, if i’m honest (which i am), but i love your review. Thanks for posting. x

    I’d love one of these in a bronzey/gold colours!

    They look lovely but I can think of so many other things I’d rather spend £40 on x

    I’d love one but I’ve read reviews saying they weren’t as pigmented as the single, and more chalky too – that makes me very sad (and hesitant to purchase)

    Gorgeous palette. A bit too pricey for me unfortunately!

    Those are so beautiful. A bit expensive but worth a look I think.

    I’m in love with the colours in the bottom middle palette. Not sure I could pull off the burgundy shade though, I’d look more ‘I’ve got pink eye’ than chic!

    That’s absolutely beautiful. Definitely going on my Christmas list!

    Oh wow! I’ve been wanting to try some Burberry stuff, but haven’t been able to make it to a counter. This seems like it might be the perfect way to try their shadows! xx

    I wish we had Burberry make up here. But it’s on my London shopping list :)

    I love the more neutral colors in these palettes, the dark smokey one you’ve shown here isn’t really my style but the other ones look gorgeous! I love Burberry’s makeup line as well, it’s amazing. :)

    Wow these look lovely and definitely good value compared to the singles, do you find the quality and pigmentation is as good as the singles?
