Here’s one of Burberry eyeshadow palette which is released for Burberry EnglishRose collection (Spring 2014). There are two eyeshadow palette that are released for this collection; Rose no 10 and Sage Green no 15. Both palettes are so pretty and I have a hard time to decide which one I shall pick up. Eventually I decided to pass on Rose palette as I already owned a few pink shades eyeshadow palette. I secretly wish that I would still grab the Rose palette but as of now, I am still standing firm to say no to buy both shades..LOL!
I am a big fan of Burberry make up products particularly their eyeshadow and blushes. They have beautiful packaging encased in a silver metal casing which has a magnetic cap. The packaging is heavy and printed with Burberry pattern. It comes with a velvety pouch and mini brushes too.
As the name suggest, Sage Green reminds me of a fresh herbs which brings my mind to lovely green fields. The 4 shades in this palette are created to complement each other. The bronze in that palette helps me to create a natural look with a pop of green. I don’t usually wear mint green but with the mix of bronze, I am feeling more comfortable to try green on my eyes.
Here are my description of the shades in this palette:
- a broken white with frosty finish. I don’t really like this shade as it has a frosty finish, but I find that it works fine as a inner corner eyelid highlighter
- The second shade from the top is a brown shade with a slight silver tone in it.
- The third shade is a mint green which has a bit of greyish tone. This shade is quite sheer and it took me 2-3 layers to show the shade in the swatch below
- The bottom shade would be a deeper shade of green. This is the shade which made my decision to pick this palette instead of “rose”, this shade of green is unique and unusual.
Although I find that the mint green shade is quite sheer compared to the other shades, in general the pigmentation of Sage Green palette is fine but it is less pigmented compared to other Burberry palette. Burberry is consistently delivering a soft and buttery eyeshadow palette. Sage Green has lovely texture; it is soft and nice to touch. I love the buttery texture whenever my finger touches the eyeshadow.
Lately I have been drowned to green themed eyeshadow, and Sage Green is one of them. Sage Green would be lovely for those of you who prefers a soft green look without being too bold. I personally like this palette quite well; the deeper green pops nicely on my lid when applied and it blends well with the brown shade.
Hope the swatches helps
Thanks for reading!
