Pearl Grey is a true cool shimmery grey. On my warm skin tone, it looks more flattering when used lightly or intensely to the more opaque. It becomes muddy on my eyelids if used between these two ends of the spectrum. So, I need some other shades to boost Pearl Grey. My favorite combination is L'Oreal Infallible Liquid Diamond in the inner half of the lids, Burberry Pearl Grey in the outer half and Burberry Taupe Brown to define the outer V and bring some warmth to balance the look. For an easy throw-away smokey look, I use lots of black eyeliner and Pearl Grey alone!
The shimmer of Pearl Grey is very delicate and finely milled. It gives my lids enough sheen and work-appropriate. Like other Burberry eyeshadows, Pearl Grey is housed in a luxe hefty metal case. The texture is smooth, easy-to-blend, easy-to-build-up and soft. It stays fresh for 10 hours with a standard primer.
I think Pearl Grey compliments cool tone the best. It's one of those shimmery shade that you can wear to work and rock a casual smokey eyes. Pearl Grey is a nice eyeshadow but not the best grey I have in my collection.
