I went from having no access to Burberry Beauty to the company setting up shop just minutes away from me… I can see this is going to be a problem. It’s a tremendous help to be able to swatch and test everything in person. I would never have made the same choices online. There are some colors that I thought would look great on me that just… don’t. And thanks to the lovely Elina, there are some colors and formulas that I would have never trusted to look good on me… that actually look amazing. She’s so knowledgeable… she hasn’t steered me wrong yet!
From the left: Lip Glow in Mallow Pink, Sheer Eye Shadow in Gold Trench, Light Glow in Russet, and Lip Mist in Stormy Pink.
Opaque/sheer finish. Lovely pigment. Completely non-sticky. Feels very comfortable on and wears well for several hours before there is any need for touching up.
This is my favorite ‘no makeup makeup’ for my eyes. It wears nearly invisible on me, but gives my eyes a ‘glow’ that looks like I was born with it. I love this shadow. The shimmer is so subtle that you can’t tell if anything is really there or not. It’s excellent.
This blush so gorgeous! It’s not quite rose… not quite bronze… and has no shimmer so it wears like ‘skin.’ It’s absolutely wonderful. A little goes a long way on my warm skin tone. I can wear this with a tinted moisturizer and a little mascara and gloss.. and be ‘done.’
Despite the strong color in the tube, this is gorgeous semi sheer ‘warm pink.’ I would have never chosen this color on my own… and certainly not online. But Elina had me try it on… and I was sold. It’s so easy to wear. Lip Mists are highly moisturizing, so you don’t even need to put a balm under this. That swatch is on totally dry lips. Definite keeper.
I’ve been pacing myself (I think) with Burberry, but there’s lots more I want to try. I’ll keep you posted as I learn more about this lovely makeup line. Ciao for now!
