Burberry Taupe Brown (07) Sheer Eyeshadow

Somehow the makeup posts this week seem to be all about eyes. Maybe I'll keep it up with an eye makeup brush tomorrow. We'll see. In the meantime, here is Burberry Sheer Eyeshadow in Taupe Brown, which is quite dark and very pigmented for a "sheer" eye shadow. I use it along the lash line and in the outer corner before blending upward, and it works very well with Porcelain as a base/under the brow color. I find that I like to also have a medium shade for blending in the crease- those of you who bought Rosewood can try that. I've been using several matte Bobbi Brown colors like Grey and Stone. They work beautifully together.

Just like the other Burberry eye shadow, Taupe Brown has a luxurious texture, making it a joy to apply, blend and wear. Those of you who are pale and blonde can also try it as a liner- it's dark enough to give a soft smoky look.

Burberry Sheer Eyeshadow in Taupe Brown and other colors ($29 each) is a Nordstrom exclusive- in store and online.

  1. I love the look of the Burberry eyeshadows. Quite pricey though!

  2. LOVE the Rosewood Burberry shadow. And yes, I use it as a contour. I am tempted to go back for Gold Trench and now I want to check this shade out, too.

  3. Hve it, love it, it is a got to colur and nice to wear and apply.
    Pricey I admit, but there is a lot inside.

  4. Indeed. Pricey but too perfect for words.
