I have been meaning to do a write up of my makeup pieces from Burberry Beauty for so long and luckily it was requested last week by the lovely Eva. I know you’ve heard me bang on about how much I love the Earthy blusher (here), but there are a few other products I am obsessed with too. In addition to that, I also have a few items I’ve been lusting after, so I’ll share my Burberry wish list with you too!
Starting with lipsticks, the first I bought was Nude Beige No.01 from the Burberry Kisses collection. I picked this up the week they were released after seeing Lily Pebbles use it after attending a Burberry Beauty event. It looks very nude in the swatch however it is slightly sheer but also still very build-able. I find it looks stunning patted into the lips over lip balm. It’s pretty long lasting, balmy and hydrating and I love the sheer yet pigmented finish. I often keep this in my handbag, so the packaging is pretty scratched!
After falling in love with Nude Beige for a grand total of ten days, I then went ahead and bought Nude No.21. A pinky nude, again from the Kisses collection. This is also a gorgeous shade; I would say it’s my lip colour but better. I find it a perfect match with the Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Lip Liner in Pillow Talk for an effortless, long lasting and natural look. Again, it is build able and pigmented with a few swipes being ample.
When purchasing the Earthy blush, I was also able to choose a mini lipstick. I went for Sepia No.85 because I don’t have many similar in my collection and I love this shade for Autumn/Winter. Again, the pigmentation is impressive and even though it’s a hydrating formula, the lasting power is wonderful. They wear well and are easy to reapply on the go.
For eyes, I couldn’t help but pick up the Silk Eyeshadow in Rosewood No.202, after seeing many swatches online, I decided to make an order. The silky powder blends like a dream and can be used dry or wet for further intensity. The pigmentation is amazing and lasts all day without fading. I find I get great colour pay-off with minimal product but again, it’s still very buildable. Furthermore, the shade is so unique, it carries a slight sheen making the eyes look subtly illuminated and defined.
I have been so impressed with everything I have bought form Burberry that I actually have a little wish list of products I intend to pick up from their Regent Street store later this year. I find the price point very fair and I also think this is a wonderful and affordable way to buy into such a classic and British brand. The way Burberry has rebranded themselves the past few years has been so impressive, I have grown to appreciate the heritage and love Burberry vibes!
My Burberry Beauty lust list includes the Silk Eyeshadow in Pale Barley, another shadow I have seen raved about on blogs. The shade looks so wearable and perfect for everyday. The Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base in Nude Radiance No. 01, a stunning liquid highlighting base, similar to that of Dior and Charlotte Tilbury. I’ve heard amazing things about the Fresh Glow Fluid Foundation, so would love to try that out also, I believe it to be hydrating and sheer – everything I love in a foundation! Just because I am obsessed with my Earthy Blush No.07, I think I will pick up a back-up just in case it got discontinued. Lastly, after my wonderful experience with their lipsticks, I would also like to pick up the Kisses Sheer Lipstick in Sheer Nude No. 221, I think this would be a great one to pop in my handbag for a hydrating, natural and effortless look.
I feel tempted to make a Burberry order now! I really have fallen in love with Burberry and Burberry Beauty. I think their packaging, products and service are second to none and really worth a try. I love that they do their makeup line in-house and have created such wonderful and wearable products and collections.
