5 Forbidden Burgundy Eyeshadows

Burgundy eyeshadows can look really lovely and add a lot of drama to any eye look. I love wearing it in the crease paired with a soft gold or brown.

  1. Laura Mercier Deep Garnet — rich, velvety burgundy
  2. MAC Deep Damson — deep burgundy-brown
  3. Inglot #452 — burgundy berry with a frosted finish
  4. Make Up For Ever #311 — darkened purpled burgundy
  5. Make Up For Ever #17 — creamy burgundy with a hint of brown and berry

What’s your favorite burgundy eyeshadow?

    Wow, gorgeous eyeshadows. I now want to buy a burgundy eyeshadow, although I have doubts about the color suiting me.

  5. love them, just bougt chanel magic night – gorgeous!

  6. I’m a sucker for dark purple (burgundy) colors. All of these are amazing! These just may be in my wish list after I finish my daily routine eyeshadows. :)

    Nyx rust is sort of burgundy to me and budget friendly too. I love these shades for green eyes!

    I bought Deep Damson because of that swatch. I find that, the darker the color, the more that I like it matte.

  9. Those are ALL so pretty!! My personally fav is NYX Burgundy Pearl (single e/s). I also LOVE Illamasqua Angst e/s but I think that is more of a cranberry red.

    I love #3, #4, & #5 in your list. I wear Sweet Chestnut from the MAC Cult of Cherry collection (2008) a lot still. It was in the Quad called Spiced Chocolate. I have hit pan and I am going to be sad when it is all gone.
