The Ban Is Over: Burberry Sheer Eyeshadow in Rosewood

I'm sorry that blog posts have been rather thin on the ground recently. I'm still trying to get everybody back to full health and I've also got hooked on watching the first series of The Killing (the Danish original). I haven't forgotten about makeup completely though. Whilst placing an order for some curtains and bedding from John Lewis, the beauty section started calling to me and I found this Burberry eyeshadow in my basket. My eyeshadow no-buy is now officially over!!



I haven't had opportunity to play with it yet (thank you very much, conjunctivitis) but I think I'm going to like it. I've made this judgment based on the fact that I buy this colour so frequently. I've pictured it alongside MAC Style Snob, Rouge Bunny Rouge Solstice Halycon, Kjaer Weis Wisdom and Elizabeth Arden Smoke, so you can see exactly what I mean. From the pan, I suspect the finish will be similar to Solstice Halcyon. I'll do comparison swatches too when the lighting is more sympathetic.


I hope to do a face of the day post soon with Rosewood applied in the next couple of days. I also have the promised review of Zelens skincare and swatches of the L'Oreal Miss Candy collection coming very soon.


  1. I love this kind of color!
    I haven't tried Burberry products yet, what would you recommend?

  2. Hi! I'm pleased you like the colour too. This is my first item from the Burberry cosmetics range so unfortunately I can't advise. I believe the lipsticks and eyeshadows are very good, I also have my sights on their undereye concealer after Drivol about the Frivol's post.

  3. The lip covers and mists are also fantastic. Beautiful, beautiful products. And well done you - ban complete! Woo hoo!

  4. Congratulations on having completed your ban!! WOO HOO! I can't wait to hear what you have to say about this Burberry shadow. I have been wanting Rosewood, Pale Barley and Midnight Brown, but have thus far resisted the impulse to buy (I fear adding another luxury brand to my line up). I can't wait to see what you think of Rosewood, though I suspect we both have a pretty good feeling that you will be quite happy with it. I cannot wait to see your comparison swatches!!

  5. Oh, now that is just too pretty. I know it's going to look fabu on you.

  6. A lovely choice to break your ban with:) I love the Burberry eyeshadows - Chestnut and Taupe Brown are my faves.

  7. well done! just dont try to make up for the 6 months without eyeshadow now though ;)

  8. This colour is lovely! Now tell me, are you trying to build up your taupes now that you know PURPLE is your colour? Go on! You can tell me!!

  9. You are going to be in love with it! I have Rosewood. Pale Barley, Taupe Brown, and Midnight Brown. The formulation is divine! So silky smooth, long lasting, no fallout, great pigmentation, etc. These are amazing for everyday but extremely polished looks! Enjoy! -- Louisa

  10. Let the spending commence :) What a great colour to start with, I'm thinking you will want some more Burberry shades after trying this xx

  11. So happy you are "back in the saddle"! Bans and no spends just make me want it all more! ;)
    Burberry is fabulous! I had forgotten how much I enjoyed the line until I just recently added Midnight Brown and Pale Barley.... Gorgeous!

  12. Congrats on making it through the no-buy successfully! I adore Burberry eyeshadows. The colors and the texture are wonderful. I have the Rosewood and love it--hope you do, too!
