Burberry Almond (06) Eyeshadow
Burberry Almond (06) Eyeshadow

Burberry Almond (06) Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.088 oz.) is a soft, medium brown with just a touch of warmer, more golden undertones, but very subtly so.  This would make a great contouring shade for those with fairer, paler skin, and it would work well as an all over color on medium to medium-dark skin tones.  It pairs well with Trench for a quick neutral eye.

The texture is soft and smooth–buttery and feels like silk.  It adheres well to the lid, over a base or without, though I haven’t worn it sans a base for twelve hours or anything (I always prefer a base–it feels like I’m committing a cardinal sin otherwise!).  It’s pigmented but it’s a buildable shade–you can sheer it out with ease for a very soft look or apply in layers for something deeper.  Burberry eyeshadows uncomplicate makeup; it’s hard to go wrong if you use their shadows.  I also like the amount you get for the price tag; a little more than the usual high-end shadow.

    Is there any word on when Burberry will be expanding its distribution in Nordstroms? It’s only available in six locations.

    • Not yet, but I imagine if the line is successful enough (and from both my personal experience with the quality and the overall buzz online), I think it eventually will be.

        I hope it is! The products look wonderful, but I don’t buy without seeing in person, especially not such high-end brands. Hope it comes near me so I can check it out and judge for myself :)

        If you purchase any more Burberry shades in the future, can you do more swatches? :D & possibly MAC dupes? Do you know what would be a mac dupe for this particular shade?

    Hi! I was wondering whether you think this is a good dupe for Urban Decay Buck (in the Naked palette). I’ve heard that MAC Wedge (which I know you mentioned in these comments) might be a good one, but I’m not really a MAC person and I am anxious for an excuse to try the Burberry eyeshadow. Thanks!
