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.
