Due the the recent Burberry shadow reformulations, I'm not sure what the future holds for the Complete Eye Palettes. Whether they will be reformulated as well or completely replaced I'd thought I'd better get round to this review.
Complete Eye Palette Rose (£40) was originally part of the
Spring 2014 English Rose collection but is now part of the
regular line up.
It contains a matte dusty clay rose/pink, a soft shimmering/satin taupe
with a pink sheen, light shimmery/frosted pink and a pale
frosted cream highlighting shade.
Apart from the light pink, which has the same smooth,
buttery texture of the Burberry singles, the other shades
felt a tiny bit dryer, most noticeably on the deepest shade
(though I did not get fall out) though they still applied smoothly with no problems in
blending. Pigment is good apart from the taupe which applies much softer and I feel like there is not enough shade distinction between the lighter two shades.
I can't help finding this a bit too frosty for me. I don't normally
equate Burberry with a frosted finish so its a shame the two lighter
shades are not more satin. However if you don't mind a bit of frost, the colours work
harmoniously to create a delicate shimmery eye look and the
deeper rose/pink shade adds an interesting edge.
