1. It’s the perfect color for your dream ? dragon
If I had a dragon, I’d want her (because she’d be a girl, obvs) to be the same exact color as Tom Ford Burnished Copper Creme Color For Eyes — a beautiful deep khaki with hints of gold.
And speaking of dragons…OMG, Game of Thrones! Can we talk about it please? Because I’m still shaken from last Sunday’s episode, and I need to release all the feelings.
2. The finish is unreal
It’s like purposefully weathered metal. Not super metallic. More like buffed to a fine patina. The shine is dampened down, but it’s definitely there, and it’s unlike anything else in my makeup collection.
3. It wears so well that you can even skip primer
Yeah, man! Burnished Copper’s BFF is bare freakin’ lids. No matter how I work it (sheer or layered or with other eye products), I get a full day’s wear sans creasing or drama. Yeah, you can wear a primer with it if you want to (I recommend NARS Pro-Prime if you do. It’s the best!), but if you’re feeling lazy, 1) I can relate, and 2) Burnished Copper doesn’t really need one, so save yourself the effort, and use all that extra energy to do a quick dance in your chair.
Go ahead, I’ll wait. 🙂
4. You can pile on layer upon layer, and it always looks light and effortless
Only have time for a sheer wash of color? Or, are you in the mood to blend an intense gradient from the outer to the inner corner? Doesn’t matter, because Burnished Copper is flexible enough for either. Go head and pack on as many (or as few) layers as you want, because it’ll never look thick, crusty or heavy. Just seamless.
5. It feels like playing with Cool Whip (and it’s easy to blend, to boot)
Burnished Copper has a whipped cream-like consistency… It’s kinda like playing with Cool Whip, and it’s lighter and less than cream shadows like the MAC Paint Pots and Chanel Ombre Premiers, which are pretty easy to blend as they are, but Burnished Copper’s fluffiness makes it even easier. I can place it exactly where I want to, and then easily push and blend out the edges. Even if you think you can’t blend for sh*t, this cream shadow will prove you wrong. GIRL, YOU CAN DO IT! Burnished Copper (and I) believe in you.
