Burberry Effortless Kohl Eyeliners

Burberry Effortless Kohl Eyeliner ($29.00 for 0.01 oz.) is a twist-up, mechanical eyeliner available in four shades (I have two to review). The formula is supposed to be “long-lasting” and “waterproof” with “exceptional colour release.” There’s a built-in sharpener as well. The two I tried were fairly pigmented in one stroke, and they’re just creamy enough not to be painful to use, but it’s not a formula I’d describe as soft or creamy. There’s a firmness to the pencil overall, but it isn’t dry or stiff.

Burberry Graphite (No. 28) & Storm Grey (No. 27) Eyeshadow

Burberry Graphite (No. 28) Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.088 oz.) is a dark, smoky brown with cool, gray undertones and a satin finish. It had good color payoff with a soft, silky texture that just a smidgen on the powdery side but remained blendable and easy to use on the lid. The color lasted for nine hours before fading. Kat Von D Graphic Nature (P) is lighter. bareMinerals Panorama (LE) is grayer. Kat Von D Dark Throne (LE) is similar. Urban Decay Smokeout (LE, $18.00) is warmer. Kat Von D Siouxsie-sioux (P) is grayer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
