Once in awhile a single eye shadow comes along that changes the beauty game entirely. That one shade that can be worn at any time of the day. For any occasion. Worn alone or with a buddy… it’s beautiful and stands out from the crowd without even trying. That shade is Burberry Pale Barley Eye Colour ($29.00 // Nordstrom).
The packaging is adorned with the Nova Check pattern that every one knows is Burberry. The silver compact comes in a black slipcover and opens to reveal a full mirror on the top and a generously sized eye shadow on the bottom. There is a small sponged tipped applicator, which I’m never a fan of.. but I will say this particular eye shadow is so luxe and so easy to be worn alone that you can smooth the shade on with that applicator in a pinch.
Burberry Pale Barley is a beautiful light golden taupe. You’re probably so used to hearing people describe everything as silvered taupe.. but this has a beautiful golden shift within the core shade. It’s very refined and flattering, yet still stands out. The formula is incredibly smooth, pigmented and easy to blend. It seamlessly works into any other shade or alone on the eye.
Below the swatch of Burberry Pale Barley is done dry and without primers.
