Could You Taupe Me Off?

Burberry Taupe Brown (07) Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.088 oz.) is a rich grayed brown with a softened, cool-toned edge. I love the pay off of it, and the texture is soft and smooth as silk. It has a semi-matte, semi-satin kind of finish, so while it’s not without a smidgen of sheen, it’s not frosty in the least bit. By its nature, it is a rather neutral shade, but it will pair well with so many colors from neutral to blues to greens to pinks. This kind of shade–particularly with its semi-matte finish–makes an excellent contouring shade, too, to really carve out the crease and emphasize eyes.

It’s a pricey pick, of course, as it is a designer brand. The packaging is as luxe as one would expect from Burberry with a hefty, gunmetal-metallic case with the check pattern and a matching velvet pouch. Each shadow comes with a decent amount of product, though, which should last you quite awhile. As with any higher-end/luxury brand, worth is very much determined by the purchaser and the products they like or what they’re looking for.

amazing! i love taupes, they suit cool toned blue eyes sooo well! If anyone with this colouring hasn’t tried them you don’t know what you are missing! this looks lovely, it has a violet edge to it on my computer screen dunno if thats just in the photo, either way, YUM!

At first, I was dissmissive. I thought, “oh great another designer thinking they can go right into cosmetic” but then I thought how much I love Chanel and Dior colors. Shoot, even Armani and D&G cosmetics are starting to make my curious. Burberry has been getting lots of play on other blogs – I may have to shut my mouth walk to Nordstrom and swatch this in person.

I was skeptical, too — just like with Dolce & Gabbana — because they’re new on the block, and why do cosmetics at all? Both brands have done it well (IMO!), and it’s definitely worth checking out if your Nordstrom carries the line.

I will! I think the Nordstrom at the SF Center carries it. I should really check it out next time I’m there. I have yet to try a dolce & gabbana lipstick. I really want to – their colors look fabulous. I’m just concerned with moisture since I have super sensitive lips and all!

Gorgeous color and finish! I tend to be really heavy-handed with colors like this, and they never look quite right on me, but this makes me want to give dark neutrals another try. Just maybe not at the Burberry price.

I was looking at that swatch’s subtitle thinking, “What? There’s only two there.” THEN I saw it; trench was hiding.

Does this have a similar texture to a Chanel shadow?
