Burberry’s new spring collection included four of the new reformulated wet/dry silk eyeshadows in colorful matte shades. Aqua Green No.309 ($29; shop.nordstrom.com) is a bright matte green with fabulous color payoff and intensity that can be used wet or dry.
I’m not sure if Aqua Green is limited edition, it still seems to be available at a few retailers like Nordstrom and Saks though. I found the silk formula to be smooth, blendable and super silky, just as the name describes it to be. While I do love mattes, Aqua Green isn’t the most flattering color on me and would look much nicer on someone with lighter skin tone. Its not a pastel, but not warm enough to flatter my my complexion. I do love to layer it paired with olive greens and shimmery browns than by itself. I found the intensity of the shadow to be great when used both wet and dry, although I prefer dry application better. I did have a bad experience with my Nude Glow eyeshadow cracking after using it wet, so I guess I won’t be experimenting much by using the formula wet. That apart, its a beautiful formula - I love Burberry’s original formula and the reformulation feels just as silky and smooth!
