BEST OF BURBERRY BEAUTY.

Burberry is swiftly becoming one of my all time favourite beauty brands. The quite often premium prices are largely justified by the exquisite formulas, housed in equally exquisite packaging - a lot of the time complete with little luxurious touches. I've acquired quite a few of their products during 2016, so today I'm sharing my favourite pieces from my collection - calling all beauty lovers for this one!

Cat Lashes Mascara - (here for US)

If you've been a long time reader here, you'll know my 'the struggle is real' situation with mascaras, and how, whilst I've tried countless, it's only the Chanel Inimitable Waterproof that's made the cut - for seven odd years. Without exaggeration, no other mascara holds a curl on my stubborn Asian lashes and lasts all day without flaking or smudging - until this sweet, precious little gift from Burberry entered my life. Every element of this mascara is something to shout about, from the gorgeous, signature Burberry packaging to the beautiful, hourglass shaped brush that fans out every last lash, to the formula that really performs. I really can't say enough about this mascara, you absolutely must give it a try!

Fresh Glow Fluid in 01 Nude Radiance - (here for US)

I like these kinds of posts where I get to gush profusely about products, although it's hard not to keep repeating the same superlatives! The Nude Radiance fluid is the most gorgeous, versatile fluid that can be used alone, as a primer, as a highlighter or mixed into foundation. It's texture is so smooth and silky, and the particles of shimmer so small and ethereal, it looks incredibly beautiful on the skin and you can wear it all over without looking shimmery. A really good alternative to the By Terry Impearlious Elixir De Perle. There's also a warmer, darker shade, Golden Radiance, for those with a darker skin tone.

Light Glow Blush - (here for US)

I can't think of a single thing not to love about the Burberry blushes. The packaging is beautifully weighty, with sleek lines and a magnetic closure - really simple and luxurious. Embossed with the classic Burberry tartan, the blushes may seem powdery and dry but apply beautifully to the skin, blending seamlessly whilst offering buildable pigment. Cameo and Earthy (see me wearing the latter on my Insta) are my two favourite shades, the former a mauve-toned, rosy pink, the latter a soft, taupe-pink that looks impeccable used almost like a contour powder.

Fresh Glow BB - (here for US)

This is a great one to have in the arsenal when your skin is feeling distinctly dull and lacklustre. Giving all the youth, glow and healthiness you could want, it's probably the most radiant tinted moisturiser style base I own, and without any sign of shimmer. On a good skin day, I like to wear this alone, but it's equally suited to wear as a primer underneath another foundation. Shade 02 Medium, the middle of three shades, is a great match for an NC ~20 skin.

Sheer Powder - (here for US)

I love love love my Dior loose powder, and I've quite perfected my application methods with it for a flawless finish, but loose powders aren't the most travel-friendly of items to be throwing into your handbag. Burberry's Sheer Luminous pressed powder is creamy, soft and silky smooth, and perfect for touch ups. I like to use a velour puff to press it on just where I need it, before spraying over a little of my Real Radiance mist to mesh everything together - and good as new.

burberry-beauty-first-kiss-soft-peach-01-review

First Kiss Balm - (here for US)

Whilst I know you can pick up countless tinted balms, at all price points, there are several reasons to add this one to your collection. A neat little tube means perfect for travel, the ceramic tip applicator feels so lovely and cooling on the lips and the formula is light, hydrating and delicately tinted - somewhere in between a balm and a gloss, they're actually very moisturising. All five shades are perfectly pretty, although Soft Peach (which applies near clear) is my favourite - my go to lip product for everyday.

burberry-beauty-cashmere-foundation-12-ochre-nude-review

Cashmere Foundation - (here for US)

I really haven't heard too many people talk about this foundation. Supposedly more matte than their more popular Fresh Glow foundation, the Cashmere is designed for everyday wear with it's long wear, apparently waterproof formula and SPF 20. Although Burberry claim it's light-as-air feel, I was pretty dubious prior to trying it, that a matte, long wear formula could really be as light as I wanted. But it really comes through on it's promise. The foundation is a lot more fluid and slippery than I was expecting, making blending a doddle, and I'm genuinely surprised at how well this stuff lasts. On my normal-combo skin, I don't need to powder at all and it'll last me the entire day without breaking up or moving around on my face. My only qualm is the shade range - not every step up/down in shade has a cool/warm undertone so finding the perfect shade for my personal skin tone was a bit tricky. If you're lucky enough to find a spot on colour match though, you're really quids in.

You may have noticed that I've left out some cult favourites (Pale Barley and the English Rose lippie for example) - purely because I've only played with samples, and I tend to personally favour face products a little better, but the eye and lip items are big favourites with other beauty lovers and for good reason - I may well post a v2.0 of this post at a later date including some!

  2. I believe I've never clicked on the post this fast before, what can I do, I'm all for Burberry Beauty. I personally think it's the best beauty brand out there (or I can be biased, who knows), but two products I tried from them are AMAZING, and I'm excited to try out more. Their blushes and kisses lipstick are in my wishlist this year, I think I even see them in my dream. Thanks for this lovely round-ups!

  5. I love Burberry makeup! It was one of my 2016 favourites on the whole. The Fresh Glow range is beautiful. I saw somewhere that there was a new foundation out? Quite curious to give that a go as I'm nearly out of the Fresh Glow Foundation. I remember trying Cashmere in store but it was too matte and full coverage for me. Stunning photos as always! :)

    1. You'll love the First Kiss - it's pricey for a 'lip balm' I can't deny but it's that little touch of luxury I love! xx

  13. I am seriously on a Burberry binge too and I have 5 products from the brand. So far I love everything that I've tried from the brand, the price is worth it for me! I wasn't sure about the mascara as my Asian lashes are hard to work with but will definitely give it a try in the future.

    1. Absolutely, it's expensive but worth it. If it's any help, I've only been able to use Chanel's Inimitable Waterproof for YEARS and Burberry is the first to break my repurchasing spree xx

  17. I am in love with your blog and especially this post! The lay out is supreme, you are quite a talent I hope you realize :-) I do have a question about Burberry products, are they ethical at all? Maybe that would justify the higher price point...?

  18. Goodness, between your gorgeous photos and your description of each product, I want to buy everything on this list! I've yet to find a mascara I've really loved (darn our stubborn Asian lashes!), so maybe this will be a winner for me? The foundation sounds lovely as well...I typically avoid matte foundations because they're heavier, but it sounds like I won't have an issue with this one!

    1. Aw thank you Jenny! Go and grab a sample if you can - that's how I started with mine! The cashmere is lovely and light, especially sheered out or mixed down xx

  19. Omg, I feel bad to say that I don't own anything of Burberry! I'm having my eyes on the blushes and the foundation for a long time, but it is really hard here in The Netherlands to find Buberry in stores to try them out. So when I want to purchase something I really have to rely on the online reviews, which is hard when you say that the Cashmere foundations have less color options. The mascara sounds amazing! I used the Chanel also for a very long time, before I used fake lashes daily ;p Amazing picks hon! The mascara is on my list now <3
