Now I am a big fan of the Burberry single shadows (baring Gold Pearl which did not perform the same as my others) and though the initial reviews for the eye palettes were not positive (as it was felt the quality was not the same as the singles), as time past more favourable reviews came in so I finally made the decision that it was indeed a rather good idea to buy one, so went for Pink Taupe (£40).
You know where this is heading....
I have to say that the shadows in this particular quad are not to the
same high standard as the singles. If I didn't own singles already and
was therefore not doing a direct compare I might not feel disappointed,
but I do have to compare them and the palette does falls short.
Pigment is quite good but the shadows are not as smooth, creamy or easy
to blend as the singles nor do I find they last as well.
Pink Taupe includes a satin beige gold, a satin moss green, a matte
dusty mauve and a matte cool brown. I don't find these shadows
work too well together, they get muddy and its hard to pick out any
The satin finishes of the singles have a lovely
subtle glimmer about them, this is omitted from this quad.
Swatched below the beige gold from the palette then the single in pale barley,
blessed with good skin and am not a beauty so I really need my makeup to
give me something extra, but this does nothing for me. Suffice to say I'll be sticking
with the singles!
