Burberry ‘Light Glow’ Blush in Peony

The Burberry Beauty brand has caught my interest for quite some time now. The look is models with subtle, sheer makeup that enhances features naturally. Makeup designed to create a natural look with ‘glows’, ‘mists’, and ‘sheers’ have only enticed me further. With products packaged in their iconic plaid the collection is just stunning.

I took a dive in to Burberry Beauty brand by picking up a light glow blush in Peony. Let me say that the quality and elegance is exquisite. The outside paper packaging itself is lovely and reminiscent to me of the brands iconic trenches. A velvet pouch with the classic plaid design hold the loveliest plaid-embossed, reflective compact. The compact is quite sturdy, made of plastic although seeming as if it is metal. The velvet pouch serves purpose in keeping your finger marks off the gun metal surface. The powder brush included is very soft, although I would not use it for full application it is perfect for touch-ups.

 Opening to reveal the blush you come across the plaid design yet again, embossed onto the powder itself. Peony is a neutral pale-pink. It comes on more of a mid-tone pink than when viewed in the compact. The powder is especially fine and incredibly soft. The quality is superior with even application. Applied lightly, it imparts a beautiful healthy color. The blush can easily be layered to your personal tastes. The color is matte, although not flat. The shade imparts a radiant, healthy pop of color that lasted on me the entire day.

When using the Light Glow Blush, you will notice quite a strong aroma of roses. Fragrance in cosmetics is not something that I particularly enjoy, especially a floral scent. However, the scent does not seem to linger that long.

    1. Ah, I just saw that it is! So lovely, I want to get this blush next, but I’m not sure if it’ll show up on my skin, since you’re paler than me. Gorgeous, though!

  1. peony looks beautiful on you taylor, it a really nice pale colour. and so pigmented! I have some staples from Burberry: pale barley, midnight brown, blossom/russet blush, lipstick: devon sunset, hibiscus, military red. their velvet foundation also feels very nice and looks very natural. 🙂

      1. yes, they have. I find the scent very pleasant actually. To me it smells like a sweet scented face cream. I like the burberry scent a lot.

  2. I still haven’t tried anything from Burberry yet. This blush looks beautiful on you Taylor! Gah… so many things, not enough dough. LOL!

  3. oh my god!! i love the third picture so much! the reflection of the flower on the packaging is just too beautiful. thats a nice pink on u. i love burberry make up! they have the most beautiful neutrals in their range ..

  4. LOVE IT. I have Russet and though I haven’t worn it as much as it deserves, its gorgeous and the formula truly is divine. I’d love to get another but they aren’t cheap, so maybe down the road one day…. 🙂

  5. What a lovely post! I just purchased Burberry Blush in Peony as well– it’s really stunning (I’m waiting for them t send it to me, but I swatched it in person). The color is absolutely perfect with your skin tone! I also bought a few of their eye shadow singles, Lip Mists, Lip Glosses, and Lip Covers! I’m really loving all things Burberry right now!

      1. It really is a lovely brand. I held off for a long time because I really didn’t need to add yet another luxury brand to my stash, but I finally caved and really love what I have gotten so far. I held off on getting the lipsticks for a while for the same reason. The scent really is quite strong at first, but I find that it fades fairly quickly. That said, I know that it is a deal breaker for many people. 🙂

    1. Hi Audrey. I am wearing Burberry eyeshadow I’m Almond. I’m not certain what is on my lips though, I apologize. It looks like a combination of things and I am probably wearing Buxom Lip Polish in Sandy on too.
      Thank you sweetie
