I wanted to share with you these beautiful Burberry palettes that I have tried out recently, I think they make for the perfect gift or for a bit of beauty indulgence! As I'm sure some of you know, I am a Burberry fanatic, everything from the clothes, the make-up, the campaigns, the models and their ethos I admire and find inspiring and ever since Burberry beauty launched I am yet to be at all disappointed by anything from the range.
So when I got hold of these palettes... I was very excited!! With the beauty range, I particularly love Burberry's colour choices and the packaging of the products - both are so effortlessly chic, stylish, and quintessentially Burberry. With these eyeshadow palettes, I love how they have the Burberry check embossed on to the powder and the way the shadows are packaged is so original. In terms of quality, and as you will see from the swatches, they are not the most pigmented of shadows and have a more sheer finish but I like how some of the more neutral shadows have a really understated appearance. Each palette has a really handy combination of colours for creating multiple looks.
This first palette is called No.6 'Plum Pink' and has the most autumnal selection of warm purple and browns. I think this one might just be my favourite.
Next is the the palette No.7 'Pink Taupe', this is more of a neutral quad but I think the colours look beautiful together and allow for unique looks to be created.
Last of all is palette No.1 'Smokey Grey'. This is more of a dramatic palette which would be perfect for creating a lovely smokey eye, a great one for nights out.
It would be great if you could do look using the 1st palette plum pink, as the colours look gorgeous, do you think the colours would show up good on deeper skin tones?

I love Burberry eyeshadows. I have bought three of these palettes, Smokey Grey, Plum Pink and Dark Spice and I want to go back for more :). They are amazing, from packaging to quality of the powders. Burberry has become my favorite makeup brand is pretty much everything I buy nowadays makeup related.

I just watched your Cara Delevigne make up tutorial today and absolutely loved it...
I'm really embracing my pale skin this winter and the Burberry make up look would be so perfect with a cute skater dress, leather jacket and studded boot I reckon. I'll definitely be trying that look out for my work's Christmas party.
Also, can you provide a little advice? :D My best friend/housemate 'graduated' from Cassie Lomas makeup academy this year and I'd really like to get her a Christmas present for her kit, can you recommend a gift idea for makeup artists?

This is beautiful Tanya! You should do a makeup tutorial using these.

Normally i would say the second one, because i love browns! but this time, i have to say the third one! those silvery colors are very pretty! I find the first one the less interesting colors!
please come check out my blog, there's a rimmel review today!
