If I were to pick one eyeshadow to put all over the lid and walk out the door, it would be Burberry's Pale Barley Eyeshadow. It retails for $29 and contains whopping 0.18oz worth of awesomeness. Considering that MAC eyeshadow singles cost $16 for 0.04oz, I would consider Burberry's eyeshadows to be reasonably prized--and come on, just look at that packaging!

I can walk out the door with this on my eyelid any day and feel ever so polished. It isn't too dark to make my eyes look dull and zombie-like, it has just enough shimmer to brighten up my eyelids, and most importantly the application of this eyeshadow cannot be any easier.

Burberry's Pale Barley is a close dupe to MAC's eyeshadow in Patina, but I personally found Patina to be too dark/gray for my NC25-30 skin. I thought Laura Mercier's eyeshadow in Bamboo (from Eyes Art Artist's Palette 2015 version) would be a close dupe, but Bamboo is more gold and Burberry Pale Barley more gray/taupey. Check out the swatches below:

I am a believer in Pale Barley, and am looking forward to owning more Burberry eyeshadows! Plus, I hear that their blushes are oh so superb (I have my eyes on Peony, Tangerine, and Earthy right now), so I'll just have to patiently wait until I recuperate from my recent holiday splurges before I make them all mine.

What is your favorite single all-over-the-lid eyeshadows? Do share! :)

XOXO,

  1. I love Burberry Eye shadows! Though I don't own Pale Barley- just yet- ( it's on my wish list xD ).
    The color is so simple, so easy yet manages to give an 'effortless polished' look on you :D
    I have a lot of favourite all over the lids eyeshadows. To name a few ; UD Toasted, UD Liar, UD Nooner, and Chanel Ilusion D'ombre Ebloui :)
