Head Over Heels for Burberry Rosewood

Hi Lovelies!

I hope you are having a lovely weekend and enjoying that big round yellow thing in the sky which we haven't seen in so long! Now this product is one I am so excited about and so glad that it is finally mine! If you follow me on twitter you will know that on Thursday I headed over to the new John Lewis beauty hall on Oxford Street and all I can say is WOW.  It is seriously amazing everything you need is under one roof and in my eyes worth the £7 million they forked out, it is how I imagine heaven but with a few more fluffy clouds and puppies around :) haha. If you haven't already go check it out but go around pay day as I guarantee there will be a lot you want!

I headed straight to the Burberry counter to check out the make up as I have heard such great things. There was one eyeshadow in particular I have lusted after for nearly a year and that is Rosewood, and boy it was worth the wait it is everything I hoped it would be. First off the packaging is beautiful, a sturdy mirrored compact with the Burberry check subtly printed on it with a little pouch but in all honestly it is one of those products you want on display as it is so pretty. I'm sure this is no suprise to you but Rosewood is a taupe colour and is quite similar to my favourite eyeshadow at the moment Satin Taupe but Rosewood has pink undertones and is sheerer. This eyeshadow is gorgeous it is so soft and easy to blend, it is very buildable you can wear it as just a subtle wash of colour over the lids, or build it up so it is a bit darker. I wore this with my Mac paint point and it lasted a good 8 hours before it started to crease a bit. It is pricey at £22.50 and is a luxury item but I love it  you can see the other colours here  I have my eye on Midnight plum next :) Have you tried any make up from Burberry?
