Some of you old readers might remember my first post like this talking about the NARS Mykonos Cream Eyeshadows. To quickly summarise, I talked about how easy it was to just wash across the lid and make it look like a complete look, and since then I've been looking for a shade like it.
Burberry's Sheer Eyeshadow in Pale Barley is just that. It is a gorgeous bronzey taupe shade that when packed on the lids and then blended out looks simply fab. In different lighting it looks a slightly different colour but it always looks very simple and elegant. It's not a cream shadow like the Nars one, but you honestly only need this shadow to create an entire smokey complete look. If you are one who doesn't have a lot of time or skills to create a five-step smokey eye then this is a lovely alternative. The formula is also very buttery and pigmented, unlike the name suggests. There are several other shades in their range, and they're all quite unique shades, but this one is by far their most popular, and I can see why.
This does come with the hefty price tag of £22.50, but for something that creates an entire look I think it's worth it. It also comes in stunning packaging with a pouch and would make a great gift for any beauty lover. It's super compact and something I've been getting a lot of use out of!
