I do have to apologize beforehand because the swatches don’t do these products justice. It’s a very gloomy day and I had to do my very best to brighten the pictures without altering the shades too much. So trust me when I say these products are way better in real life.
I can’t remember how long I stared at the screen when I first saw this highlighter. The embossing on it was like artwork, too beautiful for words and I just had to have it. I am also glad that Burberry decided to make this a permanent product because previously it was a limited edition and came in only one shade.
I won’t lie, initially I struggled with this highlighter because my fan brush wasn’t picking up much product and I almost gave up on it. Thankfully Sigma High Cheekbone Highlighter brush F03* (reviewed here) saved the day.
Trust me when I say this highlighter is very deceiving, you will barely see the effect on your skin because it’s so subtle and natural but I always, and I mean ALWAYS get compliments whenever I wear this. Customers will ask what’s the glow I have on my skin and let me tell you, it’s all thanks to this highlighter.
It took me forever to dip my brush into this gorgeous blusher. Actually it took me forever to dip my brush into all three palettes in this post, they are just too beautiful and I only started using them after Mr. Platt pointed out I was being silly.
This blusher looks scarily deep plum in the pan but when applied to the skin it gives a very soft, sheer colour that is easily buildable. On me it’s a beautiful berry shade and I easily wear it with nude, red, pink and even dark vampy lip shades.
The formula is out of this world, I thought Hourglass blushers were heavenly but I personally find Burberry to be much better. It looks silkier on my skin, as if I am glowing from within and the longevity is remarkable because I only noticed fading at the 8 hour mark.
It took me a long time to finally give this blusher/highlighter a try. The reason why I was hesitant was not because it’s too beautiful to be used but it looked too pale for my skin tone.
But I couldn’t be more wrong.
I am beyond obsessed with this blusher! It’s a stunning luminous soft pink and the more I blend it into my skin, the more radiant it looks. There is no sign of glitter or shimmer but just glowing beautiful skin. I can easily skip highlighter when using this blush and I look so healthy as if I just finished running a marathon. Okay, maybe not a marathon as I would be dead on the ground but you get my drift. The texture is very silky, semi-opaque, blends like a dream and I only noticed fading at the 8 hour mark.
