Gold Shimmer No. 28

Burberry Gold Shimmer No. 28 Complete Eye Palette ($60.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette for the holidays. It contained a “cooler” gold, medium gold, soft bronze, and brighter, golden bronze.

I expect that this palette is going to work best for someone who likes more mid-tone shades and does not want a lot of contrast–and someone who loves more shimmery finishes and does not expect a matte shade in their quads. The palette performed fairly well with good pigmentation, blendability, and decent to good wear; the only issue I had was that the texture felt a bit dusty at times.

Burberry The Runway Palette Illuminating Powder

Burberry The Runway Illuminating Powder
Burberry The Runway Illuminating Powder

Burberry The Runway Illuminating Powder ($68.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a light-medium, yellow gold with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. Anastasia White Sand (LE) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Party (LE, $46.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Bobbi Brown 24 Karat (P, $46.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Cle de Peau Gold (12) (P, $55.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Becca Prosecco Pop (LE, $38.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Chanel Routes des Indes de Chanel Illuminating Powder (LE, $65.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Anastasia Butterscotch (LE) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Anastasia Sunburst (LE) is lighter (85% similar). Tarte Authentic (LE, $28.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

It’s a new, limited edition highlighting powder described as a “luminous gold.” There is a strong, glittery overspray that sits on top of the powder, and while I did my best to brush it off, it took a few uses for it to really go away and reveal a more pearly finish. The initial glitter makes the finish more over-the-top with visible glitter particles that sit on the face without adding luminosity (they can look like dirt, if the light doesn’t hit them right!). To the touch, the powder had a drier consistency and didn’t feel finely-milled. I think it looked better on the skin than one would expect from the swatch, as the shimmer is softer and more luminous once blended and buffed into the skin. It had good pigmentation, and the color wore for just over eight hours before fading.

Burberry London With Love Illuminating Bronzer

Burberry London With Love Illuminating Bronzer

Burberry London With Love Illuminating Bronzer ($68.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a medium, slightly yellow-tinged brown with warm, golden shimmer. MAC Glow Rida (LE, $22.00) is lighter (85% similar). NARS Laguna (P, $36.00) is darker (85% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Tropical Days (P, $48.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). CoverGirl Bronze (200) (P, $9.99) is darker (85% similar). NARS Laguna (P) is darker (85% similar). Colour Pop Paradise Cove (P, $8.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). Tarte Park Ave Princess (P) is darker (80% similar). Too Faced Jolie (LE) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

It’s supposed to give “an illuminating, sun-touched complexion with a subtle glow.” The heart is the darker, more bronze-hued shade, while the surrounding area is a more golden highlighting shade. While you can, in theory, use them separately, neither is large enough to accommodate an average-sized powder blush brush without getting some of the secondary shade on the brush. You’d need to use a small cheek or larger eye brush to use them separately. It’s more usable swirled together or leaning to one shade more than the other (so more illuminating vs. more bronzing). The consistency was soft, smooth, and blendable, while the finish was glowing without emphasizing pores. It had good color payoff that could be diffused easily or applied heavily (without a lot of layers). The color wore well for eight hours on me before fading slightly.

Burberry London With Love Blush Highlighter

Burberry London with Love Blush Highlighter
Burberry London with Love Blush Highlighter

Burberry London with Love Blush Highlighter ($68.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a light-medium pink with subtle, warmer undertones and a luminous shimmer-sheen finish. It is made up of a lighter, warm white highlighter and a deeper, medium-dark pink with a satin finish. Urban Decay Cherry (LE, $26.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Makeup Geek Head Over Heels (P, $9.99) is less shimmery, darker, brighter (85% similar). NARS Robotic (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Pearl Blossom (LE, $22.00) is lighter (85% similar). NARS Fervor (Left) (P) is warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

It sold out within a few days of launching at Sephora (and I believe it was previously on Burberry’s website), but if it ever launches elsewhere or restocks, hopefully this review is of use. (Or if you missed out, providing you with dupes.) It had good color payoff with a soft, smooth, and blendable texture that applied well to skin, didn’t emphasize pores, and lasted for eight hours before fading. It’s as described–a highlighting blush–so it adds color and luminosity. I wish Burberry would consider adding highlighters to their permanent range, because I think they’ve done a good job with the texture of their recent releases, so it would be a great thing to make permanent.
