Burberry Rosewood.

It was only a matter of time before Burberry Sheer Eyeshadow in Rosewood found its way into my collection. After all, I consider my other Burberry eyeshadows (Pale Barley, Almond and Midnight Brown) absolute staples and must-haves for everyone, based both on the versatility of the shades and the unmatched Burberry formula.

Burberry Sheer Eyeshadow in Rosewood
Burberry Sheer Eyeshadow in Rosewood

Rosewood is a soft, shimmering taupe with an undertone that pulls slightly pink and purple. As with all Burberry shadows, the shimmer is delicate and refined, never over the top or flashy. Despite the name, Burberry shadows are anything but sheer, and in addition to the excellent pigmentation, they apply like butter, blend with no effort at all, and have fantastic lasting power on the lids, even without primer.

Below, I'm wearing Rosewood on the lid and Almond in the crease. My apologies for the terrible lighting and the wonky liner.

I couldn't be happier that Rosewood is finally mine. I cannot for the life of me understand what took me so long. I knew I wouldn't regret it, and I certainly don't. If you are a taupe lover like I am, you need Rosewood too.

  1. Hi Tiffany, What a beautiful Burberry shadow collection! I think Rosewood might be my favorite of the bunch because of the slight pink tones :)

  7. Ohhhh gosh, this is so beautiful! It actually reminds me a little of MAC Trax, one of my go-to colours. Belly from Wondegondingo (I hope I spelled that right) is selling one in her blog sale!

  8. I only have two Burberry shadows, this one and Pale Barley :) The quality is just so darn good, they are addictive :)

  9. Any eyeshadow that lasts without primer is going to get my vote! I love all of these - I think I need to do a stocktake of my own collection first to work out what shade I "need" the most ;)

  10. Oh yaay glad to see Rosewood is finally yours! It's my second Burberry eyeshadow, but my favorite still has to be Pale Barley! Considering the size of my stash, that thing gets SO. MUCH. LOVE!

  11. Holy brows...they are perfect!!! Wow!! And Rosewood looks really beautiful on you :-) I love that it's such a great stand alone color that you can use it as a wash or mixed with other colors as you wish! I picked up rosewood in Feb but still need to get it out of the box! LOL :-) Loooove Burberry!!

  14. Oh, man. I have plans to go nuts at the Burberry counter someday. Absolutely nuts, I tell you. Rosewood is gorgeous! Nice pick!

  15. I don't blame you for using it so much - Pale Barley is a staple in my collection as well! :)

  16. I hope you get one (or some) very soon! I really love them, Vita. I hope you will too :) I still wear mine over primer most of the time, but I notice that even when I don't, they last much longer on me than most other powder eyeshadows :)

  17. I completely agree with you, Emma! It seems like the second I add one more to my collection, I already want another! Bad for my wallet, haha. I can't decide which shade I'll go for next. Seems like we have similar (fantastic) taste ;)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Ahh, interesting! I never even considered MAC Trax, but I could see where you're coming from! That actually reminds me that I should use Trax again; haven't used it in ages!

  19. Thank you, Lindsay! It's the Eyeko Skinny Liquid Liner in Brown :) Glad you liked it!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Haha, yes, you should've gotten both! Antique Rose looks so pretty (I just googled it). I love Burberry shadows too - trying to figure out my next shade now :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I know, right? It doesn't sound like it'd be a taupe shade based on the name. I'm in love with it though. You need it too ;) Thanks for your comment, Teri!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I agree! I almost hate messing up the pattern when I first use it :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Haha, sorry, Mai-anne, but yes, you need to add it to your wishlist ;) And thanks so much!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I actually don't have Satin Taupe (can you believe it?), so I'm not sure. Sorry :-/ I love Pale Barley too :D

    ReplyDelete
  25. Thank you so much! You definitely need to add one (or a few) to your collection soon ;)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thank you, Dovey! I can't choose a favorite because I love them all, but I'm definitely happy to finally have a taupe in my Burberry collection :)

  30. LOL!! Honestly I have quite a bit I still haven't played with, opened or taken pictures of...please don't take away my beauty blogger card! Ha ha :-) IDK...I think it's because I get sidetracked way too easily. Yeah...i'll go with that...

    ReplyDelete
  31. Ok, ok, ok. I will allow you to keep your beauty blogger card, but JUST THIS TIME, ok? Hahah

  32. Oh, Burberry is one of the brands I really would like to try! All the reviews I have read are so good!
    This eyeshadow looks really beautiful, like a hybrid between MAC Satin Taupe and NARS Lhasa. This kind of colours are my absolutely favourites! (L)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Thanks so much! It's the Eyeko Skinny Liquid Liner in Brown :) And yes, you DEFINITELY need some Burberry shadows in your life ;)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love those types of colors too! :) I actually don't have Satin Taupe, but I do have Lhasa. I haven't swatched them side by side before, but I should check to see how similar they are this weekend! You should really look into Burberry if you can, Maria. I think you'd love it <3

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'm waiting for my NARS Lhasa to arrive! I ordered last week from USA :)

    It's a pity that Burberry is just available in the two main cities of Spain, which are far from where I live :( But, from the swatches I've seen, I think Mulberry would be my first pick! :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Ooo, Mulberry looks gorgeous too! That one is definitely on my wish list as well :) Sorry the brand isn't more easily accessible for you over there...I can only imagine how frustrating that must be :(
