When Burberry launched their newest and rather lovely fragrance My Burberry, alongside it came the Burberry Beauty AW14 collection. I am loving so much from Burberry makeup at the moment. It’s also been rather under the radar but I have a strong feeling that’s all about to change! The Complete Eye Palette in Nude Blush is just stunning!
I am already a huge fan of the Complete Eye Palette format. You get a beautiful compact with 4 perfectly harmonious shades. It comes in a velvet pouch with 2 really good quality brushes and a sponge applicator (for the old school maybe?). The Plum Pink palette is a favourite in my collection and now Nude Blush has sky rocketed to the top!
The two palettes are actually a little similar but quite different at the same time. I know that doesn’t really make sense! This one is a lot more nude, and although they do share some plummy tones, Nude Blush has a beautiful warm bronze influence that I am completely obsessed with.
Burberry Beauty AW14 Complete Eye Palette – Nude Blush Swatches
It is such an easy palette to wear. I use the lightest shade over the whole eye area, the warm bronze shade over the lid, the matte taupey blush shade in the crease and then the darkest shade smudged into the lashline – the angled brush that comes with it is great for this!
Now here’s a little pic, because I somehow forgot to take proper photographs, but I snapped this one on my iPhone. It was after a whole day wearing it, so as you can see, the staying power is great.
I just absolutely love it!! The mix of matte and soft shimmer is just perfect and it applies so easily and smoothly. I can’t stop wearing it. The format is perfect for makeup on the go too, and if you didn’t have time to do your eye makeup before you leave the house (guilty!) then this would be all you’d need. Especially as the trend for this look is to skip mascara, which I haven’t tried yet. What do you think about that?
