[cf-shortcode plugin=”acf” field=”affiliate_link”]

This is a continuation of my Burberry Sheer Eye Shadow reviews – you can see Part 1 here. Everything I said about packaging, wear, etc holds true for these, so this is kind of more like a swatches post. Today is all about the darker neutrals.


Burberry Midnight Brown

No. 21 – Midnight Brown – Midnight Brown is a medium-deep brown that has a bit of golden sheen under some lighting situations. Maybe it’s just me, but I think it’s just a bit more reflective than the other shimmer colors I have from Burberry. The pigmentation is excellent and it applies very evenly. I use this color mostly in the crease or for a neutral smoky eye.


Burberry Dark SableNo. 23 – Dark Sable – Dark Sable is a deep neutral brown matte. Like the other mattes in the range, the texture is a bit drier than the shimmers, but it’s pigmented, buildable and blends easily. This is a favorite of mine to use in the crease, outer corner and along my lashlines. It looks fairly similar to Midnight Brown in the pan, but swatched and on the eye it has a much softer effect.


Burberry Midnight BlackNo. 18 – Midnight Black – Midnight Black isn’t quite a shimmer, but it’s softer and has more of a sheen than the other matte shades in the range. Despite the name, it’s not the deepest, darkest black that I own. A light application comes off as more of a deep charcoal color, or it can be built up to a true black. The color is perfect for outer corner/lashlines, or for a daytime smoky look.
