Burberry Storm Grey (No. 27) Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.088 oz.) is a medium-dark, cool-toned taupe with a soft, plummy-mauve influence and a satin finish. it had good pigmentation that went on evenly and smoothly. The texture had a soft, finely-milled, velvety feel to it that wasn’t powdery. This shade wore well for nine hours before showing signs of wear. MAC Rose Blend #2 (LE) is grayer.

I like Graphite a bit more than Storm Gray but they’re both nice. Are you planning to review any others? I have Rosewood, Pearl Gray, Midnight Plum, Midnight Brown, Mulberry and Pale Barley. Others I tried but didn’t like are Chestnut, Taupe Brown, Antique Rose, Lavender and Midnight Blue.

Like them both. Burberry is a bit of a tricky eyeshadow formula for me: while they are pigmented, they seem to require some packing. The plus side being they never look harsh or overdone and the edges fade out easily. Probably one of the ‘softest’ looking mattes I’ve ever used.

I love both of these… which is probably why I have most of the dupes you listed, LOL! It’s times like this that I’m glad Burberry cosmetics are a PITA to procure.

What’s really funny is, I would always gravitate toward greys & taupes, and although I’d buy them, they just sat in my bins. I’ve always loved the colors, but because I have grey-tinged skin (not as unflattering as it sounds, LOL), I always felt they would just wash me out… It’s only been in the last 5 years, or so, that I find myself using them almost daily!

It was only when I tried blush shades that were dusky/smokey that I actually started to enjoy wearing it (which is why I actually bought 5 blushes in one haul…).

I’m a big fan of Burberry shadows. I find they blend easily and really do last without fading for a good nine hours. I love these two shades. I may have to add them to my collection.

Haven’t tried Burberry makeup yet, they aren’t at any of the stores near me. But love the products you’ve featured, especially your favorite highlight color trench. I’m on the lookout for a good gray palette, I have a old Bobbi Brown(silver,gray) one.

Yes, YES on the Storm Grey and maybe the Graphite too! Burberry shadows work awesome for me. My last purchase Sage Green #15 was a stretch, but it’s become my most favorite summer palette. So beautiful for my conservative work environment where bold makeup is too extreme. Took me awhile to understand the Burberry/ British concept of subtle beauty- but now that I understand the line- I will certainly consider them first before I purchase any other brand.

Uh oh I see a Nordstrom purchase in my future! Love the burb shadows, my midnight brown no21 is the best shadow I’ve ever owned. I like the look of both of these, I’ve just purchased MAC concrete as I wanted a complimentary shadow for my maybelline tough as taupe, which I adore, that us such a standout drug store product in my opinion

Ooh, soft, smoky grey! I like both of these, but since I can’t get Burberry (easily) here, they’re just making me more excited for the MUG shadow I got! It has a very rogue-appropriate name… 😉

I don’t have any Burberry eyeshadows. These two are very pretty. I’ve not seen Burberry cosmetics here, would be fun to do a bit of swatching. Might have to go to London for a day. 😀

Ha, ha! I acknowledge it’s usefulness, and I do own some, but its just so…brownish…and grayish.

I did get the MAC Taupe blush, so maybe I’ll become a fan.
