What was on my mind when I held this shadow on my hand? "oh my this feels so heavy and weighty!" This sheer single eyeshadow by Burberry is housed in a metal compact and feels extremely solid on hands. Let's look inside :D!
There's a little sponge-tip applicator housed in the compact. The eyeshadow carries the signature Burberry imprint. Pale Rose is a pastel pink, but MORE THAN THAT. I can also see a iridescent pink sheen over it. It doesn't look as powdery as it seems (more on that later).
The cardboard packaging has words engraved on it (not printed), and it feels very sturdy. The compact also carries the signature Burberry imprint, which is a very nice touch and feels luxurious too! There's also this velvet black pouch (also with a subtle Burberry imprint on it).
The word 'Burberry' was also printed on the closing of the compact. It's a magnetic snap-shut compact :)
I swatched it in my inner arm (palest part of my hands, lol). I apologize for the quality of the photos...I can't get the camera to focus on the swatch.
As you can see, Pale Rose comes out as a pastel pale pink color.
The sponge-tip applicator is not very helpful but nonetheless workable still. Pigmentation is quite sheer. There's also an iridescent pink sheen over the powdery color actually, yet the finish is matte but not shimmery. If you're looking for pigmentation in this pastel color, this is not for you :) I have yet to try the deeper shades of their eyeshadow collection though, don't know whether the others are more pigmented than this.
My verdict is that I would use this as a highlighter shade on brow bone and inner corner of eyes, as well as on my nose bridge too!
What eyeshadow colors would you pair with this shade? Please share! :P
