Burberry Pale Barley Eyeshadow

Burberry Pale Barley Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.088 oz.) is a pale, almost cool-toned medium-dark brown with a wheaten gold shimmer and sheen. Think taupe meets gold–it’s warmer, less gray than a true taupe, but it’s the warmth comes from the shimmer rather than an undertone. Urban Decay Suspect is warmer, less gray. theBalm Sultry is similar but doesn’t have any shimmer. MAC Patina is grayer, less golden. MAC Era has less of a golden shimmer.

Giorgio Armani #5 Copper Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil

Giorgio Armani #5 Copper Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil ($27.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as it’s named: “copper.” It’s a muted copper with a gold sheen. The only shade I could think of that was similar was tokidoki Unicorno, which is more like an orange-gold. theBalm Mischievous Marissa is a bit like it, but it is an eyeshadow.  It delivers mostly opaque color coverage in a single pass, which is always a noteworthy feat for an eyeliner.  There’s a metallic sheen, but it’s not too reflective.

Giorgio Armani #4 Antique Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil

Giorgio Armani #4 Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil ($27.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as an “antique gold.” It’s a muted yellow gold with bronze-brown tones, so it appears a little brighter than true antique gold but not extremely brassy either. Surprisingly, it reads differently to these gold eyeliners. This kind of color does an excellent job of bringing out the warmth in eyes, especially if you have green or hazel-hued peepers. The color coverage is fairly opaque in one pass, which is always nice.
