Sneaky release from one of my favourite makeup brand, Burberry!
As you may already know, Burberry launched the new Spring/Summer 2015 Collection The Birds and the Bees with the representative look back in autumn last year, inspired by “the sheer fabrics, patent textures and vivid shades of the Prorsum runway”, as they say. The makeup artist Andy Rowe, took us through this look step by step ( see it here ) using old Burberry iconic products and announcing a sum of new releases as well, but there was no mention of new eyeshadows launching anywhere. So when I saw these two “new and different” shades on their website for the Rose Pink Look, I knew I had to have them.
They are called the Eye Colour Silk Wet & Dry Eyeshadows and they come in two new shades #200 Tea Rose and #201 Rose Pink. Actually there is another Tea Rose in the old Sheer Eyeshadows line; it’s #11. But you will see the differences between the two when I will compare them later on. #201 Rose Pink is a completely new shade though.
There’s hardly any difference in terms of quality between the Sheers and the Colour Silk eyeshadows. Both lines are buttery soft, they blend effortlessly to create in the shortest time from the easiest look to more pretentious ones. Also, the fall-out is minimal and if you don’t forget to tap off the excess on your brush, you won’t even have any. Both formulas are weightless and silky-smooth and last on your lids throughout the day, beautifully enhancing the look. They both use silicones for smooth and flawless application, and contain micronised satin smooth pigments to ensure long-lasting colour and high pigmentation.
The only difference in the formula is that the new Colour Silk Wet & Dry Eyeshadows use a next-generation powder technology which gives multiple results… As in it can be applied dry for a more natural, buildable look, or wet for intense colour effects and precision lines to shape and define the eye.
You can see them in the picture above swatched wet and dry!

In terms of colour #200 Rose Tea can be described as a soft, medium pink with pink hues. It’s so similar to the original Sheer Eyeshadow in #11 Tea Rose which is a dusty pink with satin finish. But what makes the difference between the two is precisely the finish.
As you can hopefully see in the picture above, #200 Tea Rose has a softer and luminous finish, with some micro specks of silver glitters through it which don’t transfer on your lids at all, don’t worry! Burberry isn’t that big on glitters anyway!
#201 Pink Rose is what I call the colour of the roses sorbet! The instant I opened it, I immediately pictured a spring garden and the sweet, floral rose scent and recalled the taste of the roses sorbet!
Deeper and with more personality than Tea Rose, Pink Rose is a rosy pink with warm undertones and the same silky finish of the new formula, but less luminous ( the glitter particles are barely there in this one ), which makes it a great colour to define your crease with.
Makeup used: everything Burberry.

I also wore the same look with this lip liner and the Lip Glow in #19 Mallow Pink over it and it was a beautiful combination, very appropriate for Spring and Summer.
I’m very excited with these Silk Wet & Dry Eyeshadows new releases, and I sure hope that they were out for a test run and Burberry will release more shades in this lovely new formula.
