Burberry Breaks My Heart

Burberry Midnight Brown Eye Definer Pencil ($27.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a rich, dark brown with golden flecks and subtly cool undertones. As beautiful as the color is, I didn’t have good luck with wear. When I wore it on the lower lash line, it seemed to disappear significantly within three to four hours.

It was creamy enough to apply a smooth, precise line without tugging on the lash line. The texture actually gave me false hope, because it seemed dry enough that it would have no problem staying put! I loved that it is a true pencil but the pencil itself did not feel harsh against my lid or lash line.

RECOMMENDATION: The color is gorgeous, and it would work so well with green and hazel eyes, but the wearability left too much to be desired to recommend it as a purchase.

    I really don’t like ‘real’ eye pencils as I find that after you sharpen them you get tiny pieces of wood falling off it into your eye!

  2. Anya

    eek, are those actual wood chips? that isn’t going anywhere NEAR my eyes ..

  3. K7P*

    Ouch… this eyeliner looks like it would hurt!

  4. Hilary♥

    There’s NO WAY I’m spending 27 bucks on this.

    It’s a very chic looking pencil. Sucking me right in.

  6. Tiffany

    These companies need to get it together and stop putting out products at such a high cost with fail performance. This pencil isn’t worth $1.

  7. Miss Silver

    The wood looks so rough… I’ve had many pencils with real wood, but never encountered any that looks so rough like this one. …not worth it.

  8. Robella

    Packaging is stunning! Even better then in Chanel

  9. Dana

    I love the burberry collection – it has a ton of pretty neutral shades
