FOTD: Matte Smoke

I was feeling a little ‘vintage’ about the eyes, and wanted to do a smoky eye that involved absolutely no shimmer. I wanted a daytime look, so I swapped black shadow for matte brown to get the job done.

FOTD: Burberry Velvet & NARS Rotunde

Remember when I said I was saving the Burberry Velvet Foundation for cooler weather? Well, the morning was so overcast and chilly… that I figure it’s Mother Nature’s way of telling me to use it right now! So I did.

Burberry Cold Weather Haul

I recently purchased a few goodies from Burberry, with a stronger focus on cold weather. I wanted to try the Velvet Foundation and Concealer. I also picked up a Lip Mist in Brown Sugar (to wear right now).

Trench Velvet Foundation in #208:
The finish is matte… though surprisingly not ashy (which I what I initially expected before committing to the purchase). #208 s the darkest shade in this formula, which is unfortunate. Hopefully, Burberry will expand the range, much like they’ve done with the sheer formula.
Concealer in Sandy Beige:
Lip Mist in Brown Sugar:

It’s interesting that this is named Brown Sugar. There’s nothing really ‘brown’ about it (much like Copper is more nude and not warm at all… like a copper color would be). It’s more of a very warm peach, with the slightest hint of rose. I love it. I don’t really care what it’s called. 🙂
