Burberry Eye Colour Wet & Dry Glow Shadow 002 Nude Review Swatches Look

The Next Best Thing After a Burberry Trench Coat

Burberry Eye Colour Wet & Dry Glow Shadow 002 Nude Review Swatches LookI first saw the Burberry Eye Colour Wet & Dry Glow Shadow in 002 Nude (allow me to catch my breath, please) on Allana Davison in her 2015 Favorites video and instantly fell in love – with the eyeshadow, that is (but Allana’s pretty cool too, so check out her channel if you don’t know her already). Coincidentally, I had a SEPHORA 20% off coupon lying around just waiting to be used and… Well, we all know how this story’s going to end. The deed was done and a few days later this BEAUT landed on my doorstep.

Burberry Eye Colour Wet & Dry Glow Shadow 002 Nude Review Swatches LookIt’s my first Burberry product, so let me just take a few moments to admire the packaging. Can you believe I even like its fabric-looking outer box? It’s one of those boxes I don’t really want to throw out. I mean, living in the tiniest apartment ever, I do through them out eventually, but sometimes it’s harder than I’d like to admit. Does it happen to anybody else out there?

Burberry Eye Colour Wet & Dry Glow Shadow 002 Nude Review Swatches LookAnyways, let’s focus on the product in question, rather than my insanity… The square gunmetal case, engraved with Burberry’s tartan pattern, feels heavy and luxe and, after opening its magnetic closure, you’ll find a gorgeous rectangular pan embossed with the classic pattern.

Burberry Eye Colour Wet & Dry Glow Shadow 002 Nude Review Swatches LookNow on to the shadow itself… It’s a complex greyish golden taupy brown that will lean cool-toned or warm-toned depending on your undertone and the shades you pair it with. It can be used both dry and wet, but to be honest I always use it wet to showcase its true beauty. The frosted/metallic finish is not too in your face and would totally be appropriate in an office environment.

Burberry Eye Colour Wet & Dry Glow Shadow 002 Nude Review Swatches LookIt works amazingly well as a one wash wonder: whenever I’m in a hurry or just want to keep it simple, I pat it all over the mobile lid with a wet firm synthetic brush and blend out the edges with a tiny bit of dry product on a fluffy brush. The texture is incredibly smooth and easy to blend and it adheres really well to the lids.

If I feel like dolling it up a bit, I’ll pair it with a couple of matte shadows in the crease and along the lashline. In the picture below, I’m wearing Wanderer (a light brown) and Power Player (a taupe brown) in the socket and Bombshell (a very deep purple) as a liner (all three eyeshadows are from the Tartelette palette, which is one of the products I’m showing some lovin’ to this month, remember?).

Burberry Eye Colour Wet & Dry Glow Shadow 002 Nude Review Swatches LookAs a side note: If you’re pushing 30 and have dark hair like mine, do a different updo than usual at your own risk… You may or may not discover more grey hair than you thought you had… Just sayin’.

Longevity is impressive, too: the other day I wore it for about 9 hours (on top of Too Faced Shadow Insurance primer) and it didn’t show any signs of creasing. I have ‘normal’ lids that aren’t too dry nor oily, but after about an hour a tiny bit of oil will come through, not so much that it’ll disrupt the eyeshadow, but just enough to bring it to life and give it a lovely wet look.

I’d say the Wet & Dry Glow Shadow in Nude is effortlessly elegant and always appropriate just like a Burberry trench coat, but it’ll ‘only’ set you back 28.50 euro instead of several hundred… It almost sounds affordable put that way, huh?

Have you ever tried any products from the Burberry Beauty range? What did you think of them? I have my eyes on the Earthy blush… Does anyone happen to have that one?

    I haven’t tried anything Burberry before, but that one really looks like a classic. Pretty much like the trench you mentioned in the title.
    Can I just tell you that apart from the beautiful eyeshadow I love the writing in this article? I do enjoy reading your blog anytime, but that one stood out to me.

    I have only one Burberry palette, the one in a camo design and I haven’t been playing much with it, yet. But this, oh gosh, where do I even start, this is just a stunner! I honestly need to stop reading beauty blogs, the temptation is way too strong!

    I’ve been wanting to try out a ton of stuff from Burberry ever since one of my favorite YouTubers went to one of their events in London and came back with so much makeup. Seriously everything looked pretty and had great quality (although you shouldn’t expect less). This particular color is really pretty though – and it seems versatile, which is great! Definitely going on my wishlist 🙂

    Hi Carol… I too am a packaging pack rat, so I fully understand your desire to hold on to the packaging. LOL I’ve heard many great things about Burberry and am thankful to have reviewers around such as yourself who can help guide me in the right direction. The eyeshadow looks fabulous on you! Looking forward to seeing more.

    Burberry is my favourite luxury brand but I don’t own anything from their range. Hopefully one day! I love the wet swatch, both look lovely though. I’ve never owned any wet/dry eyeshadows, that’s such an interesting concept! I’m so happy Sephora opened where I am so I can finally stroll around and resist the urge to spend!

    I haven’t tried Burberry’s eyeshadows, but I’ll get to it eventually. The one and only product I’ve tried from the brand was disappointing unfortunately: it was the Lip & Cheek Bloom, and it was bad enough that I returned it – something I almost never do. The packaging was gorgeous too though!

    I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from this shadow as I was reading this post but then I saw the photos of you wearing the eyeshadow and it actually is as stunning as you describe. It suits you perfectly. The longevity of this product sounds great and the packaging is really beautiful. I’d be the same as you, preserving it in its rightful luxury packaging. 🙂

    This eyeshadow looks so stunning on you Carol! I love the sound of a greyish, gold shade. As I love those multidimensional looking shadows that change colour in different light (it looks like one of those to me anyway lol). I have never purchased anything from Burberry’s beauty range, but after seeing this shadow I really feel like I’m missing out.
