Let's take a while to admire the beautiful packaging...
Of course I picked up some eyeshadows. I chose the shades Rosewood 09 and Pale Barley 22. The shadows have been reviewed as being buttery soft and extremely blendable. Swatching the products, I can testify to this. I cannot wait to try them out on my eyes.
I have read that Rosewood can be duped with Mac's Satin Taupe and Pale Barley with Patina. Have a look at my swatches below. In person, I can see more purple in Satin Taupe which to my mind makes the Burberry shadow more versatile and neutral. Patina looked very similar to Pale Barley in the pan, but I was surprised at how different they swatched. Patina was a lot less pigmented and almost had a green hue compared to the Burberry shade.

Now onto blush. I chose shade 08, Misty and here it is in all its glory:
I think this is my perfect blush shade: cool-toned, light (yet highly pigmented) pink and matte. I am in love!
The final product I picked up was a Lip Glow, lip gloss in the shade Nude Rose 14. The colour is a subtle everyday shade which imparts a hint of colour onto the lips. I have tried this on and it is not sticky, just shiny and pretty.
I will definitely do a make-up look and review of these products once I can make a fair judgement on whether they are as spectacular products as the pricetag suggests. Until then, I'll let you gawp at the products all together!
