Making neutrals more fun: Burberry Pale Barley

There was a huge rave when Burberry Pale Barley was first launched last year, and it actually went out of stock (along with Blossom blush).  There are still people looking for it and waiting for it be restocked.  I got it last year with Blossom and while I still love the later and is actually my very best favorite blush, I'm less keen on Pale Barley a year later.

I still find it nice and complex on the pan, but totally meh on my skin -even when applying a base like Bobbi Brown bone cream eyeshadow to keep the shade true to pan.  These are some pics I took today of my eye look with this eyeshadow -using Burberry Midnight Brown on the outer V.

One is crappy office lighting while the other is natural light.  I feel there's no contrast against my skintone, and yes, I'm lacking eyeliner that would improve things a bit.  Anyway, my goal for the following days will be trying different combos to see if it works or should I just get rid of it.

Ps... I'm back to blogging, but I found that bilingual blogging is just exhausting.  Having said that, I must tell that from now on, I will blog in the language I feel too, and that I will add a translation gadget to make eveyone's life easier.

... About the blogger

He sido una “beauty junkie” incluso desde antes que estuviera de moda esto de tener blog. Siempre me ha gustado el maquillaje high end (el que venden en las tiendas departamentales), y más desde que mi mamá me regaló mi primer quinteto y gloss de Dior. Varias amigas y conocidas me han pedido recomendaciones de productos, y algunas veces hasta las he maquillado. Por ello, un día decidí que debía compartir un poquito más esta afición escribiendo un blog.

I’ve been a beauty junkie before beauty blogs became that popular. I’ve always loved HE makeup, since my mom gave me as a gift my first dior quint and gloss. Many friends and acquaintances asked me for makeup recommendations and sometimes even to do their makeup. So just one day, I decided to share my thoughts and experience by writing a blog.
