Makeup Edit: Burberry Make Up

When fashion power houses turn their attention to the beauty world and decide to bring out their own luxurious make up lines, it can go one of two ways. 1: Be stunning, but super expensive or 2: Be stunning, super expensive and really bad quality.

Luckily Burberry hit the nail on the head with their offering. Chic, minimalistic packaging embossed with the signature "Burberry" check.

When I saw this special limited edition Mini Burberry Beauty Box on Sephora, I knew it was the perfect opportunity to try out a few of their highly raved about products, plus it only cost $32. Clearly everyone else had the same idea, as it's now sold out (sorry about that), but I couldn't keep it all to myself, it's just too gorgeous not to share.

This beautiful base can be applied before foundation to perk up the skin, mixed in with your foundation to give a hit of radiance to more matte formulas. Or can be dotted along your cheekbones and the other high points of your face for a bit of added glow, which is what I've been doing. One thing I will say is that gives a very soft glowy finish, if you're looking for a #HighlightOnFleek kind of look, this is definitely not for you, it's beautiful but quite subtle.

It's billed as a blush, but I actually use it a few ways. Firstly as a contour, because it's the perfect matte shade for my pale skin and secondly as an eyeshadow. It's a lovely, easy to wear, all over the lid colour that adds a bit of depth and dimension and also looks gorgeous when combined with other eyeshadows. I can literally just sweep a bit of this powder all over my lids and it looks like I've made way more effort than I actually have (shh, don't tell anyone). You can't beat a simple multi-purpose product!

You can never have enough red lipsticks and this one is adorable, just look how cute and miniature it is, and don't get me started on the embossing! It has a lovely smooth formula with a satin finish, and the wear time was around 3-4 hours (without eating & drinking) which is ok in my books. I think when combined with a lipliner it could hold up a little longer, though I almost don't want to use it, just because of how cute it is, samples just get me haha.

I'm very impressed with this little box, you can really feel the quality and attention to detail, Burberry did a great job.

Have you tried Burberry's Make Up range? Do you have any recommendations? What do you think of major fashion houses moving into the beauty market?
