Today I’m introducing you to new additions to my stash—Burberry Pale Barley eyeshadow and By Terry Rouge Terrybly Carnal Attraction lipstick—that totally fall under “The Blogger Made Me Do It,” though it didn’t really take a lot of prompting. And showing you the look I wound up using both of them to achieve.
Kate of gh0stparties wrote rapturous reviews of the Pale Barley eyeshadow, and then when I saw that it was discontinued, I may have spent too much to buy it off of eBay. Whoops. (I did it out of yarn money, though!)
And Karima of Shameless Fripperies and I share a love of the Rouge Terrybly formula. (In fact she just started writing up her collection of 10!) Seeing her in it didn’t make me want it, because I already did, but reading how much she loved the formula reminded me of the same, and I took the plunge.
This is my first foray into Burberry’s beauty line, but I’m quite impressed. Pale Barley is a beautiful shade, evocative of its namesake. It’s a taupe-y golden champagne color that applies velvet smooth and lasts all day (with my primer). It can be super subtle, applied alone, as a wash of shimmer over the eyelid, or it can be beefed up by layering it over something like Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo 24hr Cream Gel Shadow in Bad to the Bronze.
Carnal Attraction is simply stunning. Would I describe it as boysenberry? It’s not as purple as Rebel, it has a bit more red in it, though it is similar. (I know, I know, but it wears so lovely!) Here’s a side-by-side:
I thought the eyeshadow and lipstick would go together and be a great way to show them off. (I did a poor job of capturing the eyeshadow, though.)
What do you think of my purchases? Have you bought anything lately?
