The Burberry Beauty Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base is a glorious bottle of heaven. I am in love with this primer! The super fine beige pink toned shimmer contained in this beautiful bottle makes the skin come alive. There is never any indication of shimmer on your skin. The pearlized fluid simply gives your skin a radiant glow. It makes my dry, dull skin look fresh under my foundation.
Besides using this as a primer you could also mix some of it with your foundation to give it more of a dewy, luminous finish. It can also be touched on the high points of the face as a highlighter. The shimmer is very refined in this fluid product so the effect is subtle but when it comes to highlighters a lot of times subtlety is my goal.
The Burberry Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base is so lightweight you can’t feel it on your skin at all. It is such a joy to use. I am so pleased I opted to make this one of my first products to try from the Burberry Beauty line.
Blended all the way in. See! No visible shimmer. Just healthy skin.
Well I finally got around to hauling some Burberry. Being that there is no way to order it online in Canada, and the fact I might make it to Holt Renfrew in Toronto maybe once a year, I just hadn’t found a way to make it happen even though there are several items I have been wanting for a very long time. Luckily I was able to take advantage of a really great GWP deal at Nordstrom a couple weeks ago and have a really lovely and generous friend ship my purchases up to me.
I thought I would show you the Burberry Sheer Eye Shadow in No. 24 Mulberry since it is the only item from the new Fall 2012 collection that I purchased. It also turned out to be the part of my order that I would have been best passing on.
Mulberry is a gorgeous dark plum in the pan but for some reason it translates quite brown on my skin. The beautiful plum wine shimmer seems to get lost on me. I have tried with and without a base and so far no luck bring the beauty and complexity of this shadow out on my eye.
It also turns out that I have a lot of similar shades in my collection. I am really drawn to these kinds of shades apparently! I have swatched Mulberry in between Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Red Platine, Inglot Pearl 423, Le Metier de Beaute Alexandrite, Le Metier de Beaute Ikat from the Silk Road Kaleidoscope, and Le Metier de Beaute Enrichissant from the Le Cirque Kaleidoscope. None are true dupes but they are all in the same family.
I’m not 100% decided on how I feel about this shadow yet. It seems to end up looking washed out on my eyes and leaving me feeling disappointed. That paired with the fact I do have a lot of similar shades may mean I don’t end up hanging on to this.
Burberry is available at select Holt Renfrew locations in Canada. If you are in the US you can find Burberry at Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue.
