Originally, I was going to pick five favorite pink blushes, but pink is such a popular blush hue that I thought it would be better to split it into two separate posts: one for softer, subtler pinks (think light to medium) and a second one for bolder, more fuchsia-like pinks. Thanks to reader Sirinthorn for today’s topic! These are designed to be truer pinks, but it’s on my list of posts-to-do for more of a neutral-pink-beige blush roundup
What was the first Burberry product you ever tried? Did it pave way for a real romance or did it put you off the brand entirely? What was the first Burberry product you purchased? Did you love it? Hate it? Still own it?
my answer: Burberry Beauty only debuted a little while ago, which makes it easier on my memory The very first product I reviewed was Trench eyeshadow, which is my go-to brow highlighter. It’s mostly matte, but it just matches my skin tone perfectly. It’s soft, silky, and incredibly blendable. The next two products I tried were both blushes, which are soft and lovely if you prefer a softer, more matte finish to your cheek color. I remember being pleasantly surprised by the roll out of the beauty arm of the brand–they didn’t phone it in, and it was well-done. Everything fit the brand to a T.

When it comes to choosing a highlighter, the best kind tend to have a satin-like finish–not too frosted or shimmery, but not entirely matte, because it will reflect light without looking metallic. Both matte and more shimmery highlighters have their place, though Choices for highlighters can vary based on skin tone, as one that works for really pale skin may look very stark against a deeper skin tone.
MAC Brule — MAC has a huge selection of pale beige shades; I also suggest Dazzlelight, Bisque, Blanc Type, Shroom, and Vanilla
The color coverage is opaque, and Burberry’s Lip Cover is a very creamy, lightweight formula that is really comfortable to wear. It’s hydrating enough to leave lips feeling soft after wear, and Heather Rose wore for four hours. I like how easily it glides on while depositing even color in a single pass. Burberry has a few extra touches I also appreciate in their product, which are the imprinted design on the actual lipstick itself as well as the magnetic case (so the top slides into place). Burberry also gives you more lipstick than most brands at 0.13 oz. (the average is 0.10 to 0.12 oz.).
I really appreciate Burberry's attention to detail, just because it's nice to see the extra touches when you're buying a high-end product. More importantly, the product performs very well--moisturizing, comfortable, and opaque as promised.
