Burberry Eyeshadow in Gold Trench & FOTD 6/2/13

I was slightly inebriated when I made this purchase, in Harrods, late on a saturday eve. (Don't worry I wasn't alone drinking).
My (newly acquired) friend Deniz said she uses this colour all the time so I decided I needed it in my life. I had never actually seen any Burberry makeup in real life so being at the counter after a few glasses of wine was just like heaven.
I have worn this twice, as an all-over-the-lid colour and just in the crease - it looks really pretty both ways. The texture of this eyeshadow is just so buttery and silky and amazing. There's almost no point in my trying to describe it because my words just won't match up to the beauty of this product. The colour is a kind of sandy colour, with a satin finish and a tiny bit of shimmer.
I love how the packaging comes in a little velvety black sock- so pointless, but I love it. I also love how the burberry print is on the packaging and on the product itself. It's the attention to detail that counts!
Does anyone have any other colour recommendations?
