First Impression & Swatches: Burberry Burberry Eye Colour Wet & Dry Glow Eyeshadows in Nude 002 and Shell 003

My name is Ashley and I have an eyeshadow addiction. Actually, a Burberry eyeshadow addiction. I decided to return Stone and in the process two more beauties came home with me...

 Remember when I said I was underwhelmed with Stone and Porcelain? Well, let me introduce you to Nude and Shell! They're from the "Glow" formula (as opposed to the "Eye Silk" side of things) and I'd say that's an accurate description. When I saw them in the store, I was like, "Oh. Yeah. Pretty, shimmery neutrals. Ho hum. I have a million." Then I stupidly swatched them and literally said "Oh, wow!" out loud and promptly bought them both.

Nude is a super shimmery mid-tone brown. It looks like it has a silver flash to it, which is interesting and keeps it from being flat or muddy.

Shell is a super shimmery golden peach color that I think will look beautiful with blue eyes.

When I say "super shimmery," keep in mind this is still Burberry, so they're not glitter bombs like some Urban Decay shadows (ahem, Sidecar and Chopper!). You will obviously have shimmer/sheen on your lids, even in low lighting, but it won't be obnoxious. Just pretty!
