Sunday Riley at Barneys New York Beverly Hills


It was the week before Christmas when I had a gift card burning a hole in my pocket. I was browsing Barneys.com when I came across a new brand of eyeshadow, by Sunday Riley. I instantly searched for reviews and more information and The Non-Blonde perfectly timed her review of Blushing Blush by Sunday Riley. When she raves, I listen. I was instantly intrigued but couldn't bring myself to buy the shadows or blushes sight unseen. (The gift card instead went to a Byredo purchase.) Thankfully I was able to satisfy my curiosity and check out Sunday Riley at Barneys in Beverly Hills. The counter is located where Koh Gen Do was formerly (KGD has been shifted over to another spot in the same bay). So far for color items they only have eyeshadows and blushes. I was able to sneak a photo of the shadow display. I was told Glosses and Lipsticks are expected to arrive in a month or so.

For those new to Sunday Riley (like myself), I highly recommend you read more about her on her website SundayRiley.com. She is known for her skincare line. I am still learning more about her and as I find out more I will share what I find. Locations are on her website.

I picked 4 eyeshadows and 2 blushes. I will include swatches and descriptions in a more detailed post soon, but here is a sneak peek. Left to right: Lady Godiva, Fool's Gold, Leprechaun and Burnt Eggplant.




First impressions are a thumbs up. Right now, I can't always find the eyeshadows on Barneys.com. Sometimes if I google the phrase "Sunday Riley Eyeshadow Barneys" I will find the link. Sometimes it will say no page exists. Perhaps they are updating their website as the line rolls out.

Have you tried her cosmetics line yet? I'm all ears! (Better photos to come soon, these were taken at sunset so there is a slight cast due to lighting issues.)

  6. Never heard of it. I must admit that the big shadow display looks quite unattractive & dirty ! What a shame to leave it in this condition ! It wouldn't attract me for sure. Doesn't look it's on the posh side...
    Sorry for my negative comments...

  7. I look forward to your review; I've been on the fence about purchasing this without swatching. I'm interested in both the shadows and blushes. I feel like there's more, but I have also had issues finding it on Barneys site.

  8. I have been wanting to try that blush that was reviewed - these shadows are gorgeous, too. I need to stalk this counter next time I visit at Barneys...

  9. Ooh, I've seen The Non-Blonde's posts on Sunday Riley products. I am definitely going to splurge and get the primer when the time comes to get a new one. I am loving the SR shadows, especially Burnt Eggplant and Lady Godiva. I can't wait to see more swatches. I know what you mean about Barney's web site being hit and miss when it comes to Sunday Riley products. I hope they smooth things out in the coming weeks so that purchasing online will be easier since not everyone has a Barney's New York nearby.

  11. I've been playing with these at Barney's in San Francisco and I am obsessed! I've gotten French Press (a cool dark brown that leans purple) and Desert Sunset (a lovely pale pink that works as a neutral on my cool, pale skin tone). The two work together flawlessly! Siberian Sable is next on my list, and I'm lemming Fool's Gold too! The pigmentation and texture on these is fantastic, and the finishes are beautifully complex! I've been looking for other reviews, so I'm glad you and the Non-Blonde are picking up on this brand! I can't wait for the lip products!

    P.S. I'm a big fan of your blog, keep up the great work! :)

  13. I;ve used plenty of her products and I do like them. I tend to lean more toward her skin care line as opposed to her makeup.
