Burberry Autumn/Winter Collection 2012: Sheer Eyeshadow in No. 24 Mulberry Review and Swatches

This may sound crazy, but I didn't have high expectations for Burberry Sheer Eyeshadow in No. 24 Mulberry ($29). After trying a handful of unimpressive designer cosmetics, I started to think that some brands just focused on their clothing lines and let their brand names justify selling sub-par, high-priced makeup.

Turns out that's absolutely NOT the case with Burberry. This eyeshadow is some of the softest, silkiest, and most pigmented that I've ever had the pleasure of swiping on my lids. Burberry Sheer Eyeshadow in No. 24 Mulberry is a lovely warm purple shade that falls between burgundy and eggplant. It's spiked with finely-milled shimmer for added glitz.

In addition to the beautiful product, this eyeshadow is wrapped up in gorgeous packaging. Both the eyeshadow itself and the sturdy metal palette are embossed with the iconic Burberry print. The palette comes wrapped up in a velvet pouch for an extra luxe touch.

For this look, I applied Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Half Baked to my lid and Burberry Sheer Eyeshadow in No. 24 Mulberry in the crease. I used Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Sin to highlight and blended Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Toasted between the crease and the browbone.

I am really happy with this sultry and glam eyeshadow look. Burberry Sheer Eyeshadow in No. 24 Mulberry adds wonderful depth and a dash of subtle color that keeps things interesting. Plus, my eyeshadow lasted all day on top of Prestige Primed and Ready Eye Primer.

I definitely recommend Burberry Sheer Eyeshadow in No. 24 Mulberry if you are looking for a worthwhile makeup splurge. Kudos to Burberry for delivering spectacular quality along with the high designer prices! 

What designer brand do you think has the best beauty line? Which is the most disappointing?
