Everytime I lay my eyes on Burberry, I miss my London trip SOO much. I miss the tube, the coffee shops, the markets, and the culture. Burberry recently launched a new fragrance inspired by a “London garden” – and though I have been to London and not their gardens, their newest perfume My Burberry Blush encapsulates a freshly bloomed flowers when the sun rises. There are also a few new lovely products that are a part of the new Blush Makeup Collection.
With base notes of jasmine and wisteria, My Burberry Blush (50mL/$98, 90mL/$130) opens with juicy scents of lemon and pomegranate and contains notes of rose petal and crispy apple. It’s been a while since I came across a scent that I was so delighted about, and My Burberry Blush did everything I can hope for.
The tartness of the citrus and fruits gave it a slight edge with the combination of floral scents. If I could have the ultimate, Instagram-worthy garden, it would smell like My Burberry Blush- inviting, charming, and delicate. Every bee would be welcome. My Burberry Blush lasts around half a day for me. At the end of a work day, I detect a slight whiff of floral, but I am already pretty happy with how delectable it is. Not to mention – the light pink bottle with the pink ribbon and cap makes it a bedside beauty.
Every time I set my eyes on Burberry’s limited edition palette, my heart beats with surprise like opening a Christmas present when it’s your first holiday. The Blush Palette ($72 CAD) is inspired by Burberry Beast’s fashion collection. The palette’s detail is truly stunning and I almost didn’t want to swatch it. The gold is an overspray which makes the details truly stand out. When swatched, I got a dusty shade of pink and the formulation is weightless and silky. Burberry palettes rarely disappoint (except the price tag makes me a bit sad,) and this one is no exception. It gives a light pinky glow on the cheeks that will stay on during your work day.
My first EVER Burberry lipstick was in the shade “Pink Heather” (it was the Lip Mist,) and I remember how I wore it so often. It was natural, it was hydrating, and it felt luxurious. When I read the name of the Burberry Eye Colour Cream ($35 CAD), which is No.106 Pink Heather, I was worried I’ll have to try to make pink eyeshadow look nice on here. It’s a mauve, brown shade with a satin finish and it looks really nice on it’s own! With the box, it also comes with a mini brush but I found it pretty easy to apply with my fingers.
Lastly, the Burberry Full Kisses in No.501 Nude Blush ($33 CAD) perfect for those who want to try out a very natural or nude shade of lipstick but don’t want to wear a tan coloured lipstick or wear a lipstick that is TOO light you can’t tell it’s on. This lipstick is creamy and two coats cover the lips entirely. Nude Blush leans towards a salmon pink shade. My lips have been very dry and crackly lately, and the fairness of lipstick did pick up on that, though it did make them look healthier! The pen type packaging is very easy to throw in a purse and takes up less space than the usual rectangular lipstick containers that I’m used to.
The pigmentation of every Burberry colour product listed in this post is great – from the bottom left we have the Blush Palette, then the Eye Colour Cream in Pink Heather, and then the Burberry Kisses Lipstick in Nude Blush. I like how they are all off shades of pink that complement each other well when worn together. (Though I think the lipstick may be a tad too pink on me, no?!)
And here I am wearing every product mentioned – even the perfume, though you can’t tell. 😉
If the Burberry makeup collection was a human, it would certainly make me blush. The products are elegant and can be worn for all four seasons (except for the lipstick, I’m pretty sure if I get tanned during the summer it would not look good on me!)
You can purchase Burberry beauty at The Bay, Sephora, Nordstrom, or online.
