Burberry // Festive Complete Eye Palette
Everything about Burberry's Festive Holiday 2016 Limited Edition Beauty items really do scream, "Festive!" From the gold packaging with the iconic plaid, to the items themselves ranging from gold lip gloss to a gold cream highlighter. The one item that stood out to me was this eyeshadow quad, The Complete Eye Palette in Gold Shimmer No. 28. It's limited edition, and I purchased it during the Sephora VIB Sale. I had read that the colors are less warm in real life, which actually appealed to me. I've hoarded so many warm eyeshadow palettes over the past few months, that something a little less warm and peachy sounded real good.
The gold compact is gorgeous, and has the perfect weightiness to make it feel luxurious. It closes with a magnetic closure, and has a nice big mirror inside. It also comes with a velvet pouch with a flap closure. And includes three brushes which aren't great, but will do in a pinch - a brush, sponge and angled brush.
The four colors are all very neutral, but with a gold sheen to them. Really gorgeous. It's like neutral with a little pizzazz. It's perfect for those wanting to amp up their look for the holidays, but just a wee bit. Nothing too crazy. It's a very sophisticated and chic palette.
The quality of the shadows are great too. Here are some brush swatches onto my arm with a primer.
The pigmentation is great and they blended well. My only complaint is that the differences in colors are so subtle. I think they could have made the darkest shade darker, and the lightest shade, lighter. And, when I applied them onto my eye (with primer) there was no fallout and lasted throughout the day - about 5-6 hours.
If you're looking for a portable eyeshadow quad for your holiday party clutch and a simple, sophisticated look, this may be the palette for you!
