Mad for plaid: new Burberry makeup line
July 07, 2010
Burberry is the latest fashion brand to come out with a makeup line. I think they did a pretty good job with the packaging, albeit not all that surprising. I would have been a bit disappointed if they hadn't put their trademark plaid to good use, and they used it everywhere.
I like that it's even etched in the face powders and eye shadows:

So while this didn't knock my socks off (they played it very safe) it was fairly well-designed and definitely in keeping with the brand's image and aesthetic. Maybe for limited edition collections they'll do a more interesting plaid pattern or colors.
