The Burberry Autumn/Winter 2015 Makeup Collection was inspired by the Burberry Womenswear Autumn/Winter 2015 “Patchwork, Pattern, and Prints” collection. The star piece of the collection is the limited edition Burberry Autumn/Winter 2015 Runway Palette ($70 US/84 CAD). The packaging comes with a camouflage designed clear plastic sleeve.
The palette itself is the standard Burberry plaid patterned heavyweight magnetic closure mirrored compact. It comes with in a black velvet pouch with 3 mini applicators.
The eyeshadows are a velvet finish in shades of nude, khaki green, and black in a camouflage pattern.
The powder is quite firmly packed in the compact. Due to the camouflage pattern it can be quite difficult to pick up just one colour. I see the main focus of this palette as being a collector’s piece.
The shadows have a velvet matte finish and offer a sheer-medium level of pigmentation. They do blend really well. I was surprised how easily I was able to blend out the deep khaki green in my crease. The colour combination is perfect for a khaki toned smoky eye look.
The collection features 2 existing shades of Burberry Eye Colour Cream ($30 US/34 CAD) in Mink No. 102 and Charcoal No. 114.
Mink is one of those shades that is just perfect for a quick one shadow eye look. It’s a bit lighter than one of my favourite eyeshadows, Burberry Midnight Brown. You can just put this on your lid and blend out into the crease and you’re good to go.
The formula is more a creamy powder with a slightly mousse like texture as opposed to a true cream. Pigmentation is great and it applies well with both fingers and a brush. I do recommend a primer as I experience some moderate creasing and fading through the day if worn without one.
One of my favourite pieces in the collection is the new Burberry Effortless Kohl Eyeliner in Antique Gold No. 07($29 US/$32 CAD). It is a stunning shimmering antique gold shade with a creamy texture and excellent pigmentation. Another new shade for fall is Storm Green No. 06 (not shown).
The collection introduces two limited edition shades of Burberry Nail Polish ($22 US) in Khaki Green No. 205 and Cadet Green No. 206. It also highlights an existing shade of Burberry Nail Polish in Poppy Black No. 299 which is a true black cream finish shade with full opacity in 2 coats.
