Review: Burberry Sheer Eyeshadow No 21 Midnight Brown

Burberry Sheer Eyeshadow No 21 Midnight Brown ($29 for 0.088 oz) belongs to the Spring 2012 collection and is added to the permanent line. Having quite a few browns in possession, I half-doubted that Midnight Brown would offer me any excitement. But I trusted the brand's sophisticated style and hey, no risk no fun. I'm so glad I did because Midnight Brown turned out to be yet another unique wearable brown.
Midnight Brown is a shimmery medium chocolate brown that has all the element right. It leans more warm but stays neutral enough to compliment all skintones. It might look like a deep color in the pan, but it's actually quite a soft color. Still, you can build it up for intensity as desired.

The texture is super finely milled and butter smooth. It glides on easily without any fall-outs. The shimmer fused in Midnight Brown accentuates the color, giving the eyelids a soft sheen. However, I wish it had more a satin finish. Just a personal preference. I feel that way it'd look more chic and unique than the regular shimmery browns.

Midnight Brown wears well for 10 hours on top of a standard primer. I love to pair it with Burberry Rosewood and Pale Barley (like here), and virtually any other shades that I want a bit of sheen and warmth balance (e.g.,Edward Bess Mirage and Storm). Midnight Brown is also a great overall lid color by itself.

Below are some comparisons to Burberry Midnight Brown
Brown is a classic color but can be very boring and outdated sometimes. This makes any creation of a new brown more and more challenging. Burberry brings us a brown that's universal enough for all personalities to love and yet unique enough to intrigue brown-lovers. Bravo Burberry!

Bottom line. Another outstanding product by Burberry. Phenomenal color and quality. Great by itself or to create dimension the eyes. Natural or intense looks, Midnight Brown got you covered. A must-have!
