5 Forbidden Burgundy Eyeshadows

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?

Laura Mercier Deep Garnet Eyeshadow

Laura Mercier Deep Garnet Eyeshadow ($22.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a deep, dark purple-burgundy with a soft, frosted finish and tiny flecks of ruby red shimmer. It is darker than MAC Deceit. The base of Deep Garnet is similar to MAC Shadowy Lady.  I think the intensity and depth of this particular shade is what really makes it sing.

The texture is divine; silky smooth, finely-milled, and so soft it almost feels like a cream. With a fabulous texture comes intense color payoff. It wears well without any concerns over an eyeshadow primer/base, but these are touted as being long-wearing with good adhesion on their own, which is where I’ve encountered a couple of issues. With Deep Garnet, it wore for eight hours without creasing, but there was slight fading.
