Burberry Sheer Eye Shadow / Pale Barley


I coveted. I purchased. I loved.

Istedim. Aldim. Sevdim.

Burberry Sheer Eyeshadows come nestled in a black,velvet Nova Check pouch which is packaged in a cream colored box. Packaging is absolutely to die for. The magnetized gunmetal compact adorned with the check logo is anything but ordinary. Compact does noticably feels heavier than what I am used to. There is 2,5 g (.088oz) of Pale Barley goodness in this compact which is roughly more than a Chanel Ombre Essentielle eyeshadow (2g/0.07oz). 

Burberry sheer farlari oldukca luks Nova Check baskili siyah, kadife bir kese icinde, kesede krem rengi Burberry kutusu icinde satiliyor. Sunum gereckten sahane! Miknatisli koyu gri kompakt ustunde yine check logosu ile oldukca siradisi. Kompakt alisik oldugumdan daha agir geldi. Chanel Ombre Essentielle farlariyla kiyaslayacak olursak aradaki fark...Burberry farlari 2,5 g Chanel farlari ise 2g.



Though Pale Barley is a simple shade it's really hard to describe. I will call it a muted, shimmery medium brown with gold sheen in satin finish. Texture is unbelievably, velvety, buttery soft. My expectations in terms of pigmentation were high and I am happy to report that I have not been let down. Pale Barley has got some great color pay off. With or without a primer/base, it seems to stay put on my lids throughout the day without creasing.

Basit bir renk olmasina ragmen Pale Barley'i tarif etmekte zorlandim. Ona yumusak altin piriltili, orta kahve demek istiyorum. Bitisine ise saten ve pariltili karisimi diyebilirim. Yapisi kadifemsi ve inanilmaz derecede yumusacik. Bu fardan, pigmentasyon bakimindan, beklentilerim oldukca yuksekti. Beni hayal kirikligina ugratmadigi icin mutluyum! Bazli ya da bazsiz butun gun hareket etmeden durmasida benden arti puan aldi.



I pulled out shades I have initially thought would be pretty similar to Pale Barley. Well, I was so off that I am embarrassed to show which ones I thought were close. The closest color I own is Patina, which is one of my all-time favorite eye shadows. I can't believe I have not seen this coming from swatch searches! Patina only comes close, it's not a dupe in my opinion. Patina definitely has more gold with almost a greenish tint.

Koleksiyonuma Pale Barley'e benzeyen renkler varmi acaba diye soyle bir bakindim. En yakin renk Patina cikti, tum zamanlarin en sevdigim farlarindan sadece biri. Satin almadan once Pale Barley swatchlarina baktigimda bunun nasil farkina varamadim hayret ettim! Patina yakin ama ayni renk mi, hayir. Patina'nin icinde yesilimsi tonlarda altin rengi daha agir.


I'm having a crazy hair day! :D

Without a doubt, luxury comes with a hefty price tag in most cases, in this case $29. I confess that it is way more than I would ever like to pay for a single eyeshadow but then again it is a color I have absolutely fallen in love with. Not to mention, it is such a versatile and easily wearable one.

Suphesiz luks demek para demek, bu durumda 29 dolarcik. Itiraf ediyorum, tek bir far icin hic bir zaman odemek istemedigim bir fiyat. Ama cok sevdigim,gercekten cok severek kullandigim, ve ustelik kolaylikla her gun, her zaman kullanilabilecek bir renk.

In conclusion, I do recommend it to all the neutral eyeshadow lovers out there! I think it's a must have in any makeup addicts collection ;)

Sonuc olarak, naturel far severler icin siddetle tavsiye ediyorum bu rengi. Bence her makyajkoligin koleksiyonunda bulunmasi gereken bir far ;)

  8. Love the look of Pale Barley on you. It looks so gorgeous against your skintone. I remember Tiffany posting about this on her blog and I swear I nearly died wih jealousy and lust over it. It looks great but the price tag. The price tag. Why can't it be just a tiny bit less expensive? I love love my neutrals and I can definitely see myself picking some of this if ever I win the lottery. Wish me luck Ebru? haha :) Only in my dreams.

  11. I have Midnight Brown and it is to die for. I agree about the packaging and the overall texture and quality of the eyeshadows. I am in love with it and definitely want to add more to my collection, as well as at least one Burberry lipstick

  12. It looks gorgeous on you! Patina was the closest I had too- but you're so right that they aren't dupes. Your hair looks great, not at all crazy! :)

  13. Thanks Yu! :) You need at least one, let me tell ya! Well it's a funny story, I thought I could pull off Revlon Lip Butter in Creamsicle with this look but didn't like it at all. So on top of that, I applied another lip butter in Tutti Frutti which I didn't like either. Then I applied yet another one in Sweet Tart :) So basically it's a combination of 3 lip butters!

  18. Thanks Diane! The price tag was too high for me also, but I like to spoil myself with treats like this sometimes :) I hope you do win the lottery and buy everything you want...I am sure at that time, a Burberry eyeshadow will be like the last thing you want though! :) You never know!

  19. Thanks! I know, it's definitely a "treat", I don't and wouldn't pay this much on an eyeshadow on regular basis, it is too much...
