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!

  11. Megan says:

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

  12. 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)

  13. Stevie says:

    Gorgeous palette. A bit too pricey for me unfortunately!

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

    So lucky to be given this!

  16. 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!

  17. Paula says:

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

  20. 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 🙂

    Ivana, xoxo


  22. 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. 🙂

  23. 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?
