Eeek! Fall is just around the corner and I’m finally able to say I’m looking forward to it. I love the summer- the hot days and long nights, the sun, swimming and everything in between. However, the fall is such a special time of year. The brisk air, the falling leaves…everything is just so magical. Including, and this is important, the makeup. That’s why since I first learned of these new shadows being released by Burberry months ago I was already excited for autumn to get here.

The two new shades are #23 Dark Sable and #24 Mulberry and both are gorgeous- though I’ll admit Mulberry steals the show.

Dark Sable


I’ve only just received these, but as you can see from my previous collection post on Burberry eyeshadows, I’m no stranger to their formula and their excellence. They are by far my favorite high end powder eyeshadow. The packaging and etching are the icing on the cake.

Swatches L-R: Burberry Taupe Brown, Burberry Dark Sable, Burberry Mulberry, Burberry Midnight Brown

I was struck by how close Dark Sable was to Taupe Brown. It’s definitely a bit warmer, more brown but I did not expect them to be this similar. That makes Mulberry stand out even more. There isn’t anything like it in the current Burberry line up. It’s a beautiful slightly burgundy brown with loads of dimension, just like Midnight brown. It’s autumnal perfection in pan form. If I could only choose one of the two new shades, it’d hands down be Mulberry.

They are both available online at Nordstrom right now. The shadows retail for $29/each.

    Ah, dammit. I was trying to hold out on Mulberry, though the few swatches I’ve seen around have been plaguing my brain – now it’s official! I’m ordering this ASAP!!!! 😀

  10. They’re equally gorgeous, although Mulberry is a bit more interesting. Love them both, and I’ve heard so many good things about Burberry’s eyeshadow formula at this point that I’m just debating which color to start with LOL. And I’m with you on fall! I think there’s just so much possibility in the air…I love it.

    I cannot decide if I should get Taupe Brown or Dark Sable. I was thinking of getting both but maybe they are to similar. Do you recommend getting both? if not which one do you think is the winner? Thank you.
