Burberry BODY is the first-ever fully integrated fragrance launch across all platforms of the brand and represents the next chapter in 155 years of history. The scent is a feminine and effortlessly sensual fragrance with an eclectic combination of refined ingredients – green absinthe, freesia, and illuminating peach which form the top notes; natural rose, iris, and sandalwood at the heart; woody cashmeran, creamy vanilla, sensual amber, and musk which compose the base.
Designed by Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey, the bottle itself is a multi-faceted, iconic glass bottle with rose gold engraved check and made with the same craft, intensity and modernity of the classic trench coat. The jewel-like, elegant and feminine design combines with the sophisticated packaging to create a feeling of pure luxury!
Burberry Facebook fans will be able to exclusively sample the new Burberry Body fragrance. Burberry has developed a bespoke application allowing exclusive sampling directly via the brand’s Facebook page.
Burberry Tangerine Light Glow Natural Blush ($42.00 for 0.24 oz.) is new for spring/summer, and it is a darkened, pink-tinged peach with a mostly matte finish. The Light Glow line is designed to deliver softer, more natural color, so the pigmentation level on this blush is right on target–the color payoff is there but it’s not intense or overdone. Initially, it seemed like it was too close to Burberry’s Russet, but this is pinker, less brown. It’s not as plum as MAC Darkly My Dear Blush. It’s pinker than Chanel Espiegle, which comes across as more of a true peach in comparison.
It’s called Tangerine but there’s no accompanying official color description, and this is kind of tangerine, but it’s not the first color I’d think of when I hear the word “tangerine.” I think it’s close enough, and with the way it’s muted down, in line enough not to merit any point deductions.
It’s a soft, easy-to-wear color on both warmer and cooler skin tones, because it’s very much a natural color, and it applies softly without being invisible. I found it impossible to overdo blush with this product, which makes really easy to use. It has a soft, finely milled texture that allows for effortless blending. You won’t have to worry about diffusing harsh lines at all, because the color stretches and blends with a seamless result. It wears for around eight hours over foundation before beginning to disappear.
I think Burberry has done a stellar job on packaging their line, because they provide the heft of high-end with a metal compact that has the brand’s signature check printed on the outside (as well as on the powder itself). Many high-end brands like Chanel and Dior house the majority of their products in plastic, and for $42, it’s nice to see something else. It’s compact, sturdy, slim and portable. It comes with a nice-sized mirror along with an angled brush (that’s actually soft enough and shaped well to make it usable).

As seen on Burberry’s SS 2011 runway, an almost-naked face – hazy eyes, a smattering of nudes on the skin and lips, accented by a touch of soft rouge on the cheek – served as the perfect counterpoint to Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey’s glam biker girl.
As part of Burberry Beauty’s new spring/summer collection, the new lip and cheek shades work to create distinct signature nude looks – natural, effortless, or sun kissed – as iconic to Burberry’s DNA.
These brands are impossible to find, and with so many brands online, it’s easier than ever to find niche beauty brands. These are five brands that you just won’t find in stores all over the place but are worth buying sight unseen.
Le Metier de Beaute is a beautifully done line with really nuanced colors, well-thought out formulas, and full range of products. I fell in love with the brand a couple of years ago after stopping by one of a handful of counters in New York City. Their distribution has increased tremendously in the past year, but they are still harder to find in stores. My favorite products are their blushes and Lip Cremes.
Burberry created a line with a surprising amount of success–it does not feel like they rested on their brand name to carry them forward. They created a color range that worked with the brand’s image–simple, elegant, timeless. The textures equally in line with their image; silky, smooth, never too shimmery or too much. My favorite products are their eyeshadows, blushes, and lipsticks. Burberry Trench is my go-to highlighter.
Rescue Beauty Lounge is a brand that is so relatable. The creator, Ji, interacts with fans and customers so well and thoroughly that you feel like you are following her on her journey of creating new shades. There is truly something special about the way Rescue Beauty Lounge listens to their customers and finds ways to give them yet one more reason to love the brand. Many of the polishes have subtlties that make a shade unique–on top of an excellent, long-wearing, beautifully-applying formula.
Paul & Joe Beaute has such darling packaging but the products inside are equally, if not more so, deserving of praise and attention. There is a certain softness to their range, with some playfulness, and always enough creativity to keep the brand elevated from same ol’, same ol’. My favorite product is their eyeshadows!
Nubar is a brand I know I would have never heard of had i not been a beauty blogger or thoroughly immersed in the online beauty community. It is a brand that does nail polish exceptionally well. I always feel like Nubar does their own thing; you never quite know what to expect from them–sometimes it seems fitting to the season, other times they create shades you may not think you’d wear.
Burberry Midnight Brown Eye Definer Pencil ($27.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a rich, dark brown with golden flecks and subtly cool undertones. As beautiful as the color is, I didn’t have good luck with wear. When I wore it on the lower lash line, it seemed to disappear significantly within three to four hours.
It was creamy enough to apply a smooth, precise line without tugging on the lash line. The texture actually gave me false hope, because it seemed dry enough that it would have no problem staying put! I loved that it is a true pencil but the pencil itself did not feel harsh against my lid or lash line.

Ease of Use: 4/5
RECOMMENDATION: The color is gorgeous, and it would work so well with green and hazel eyes, but the wearability left too much to be desired to recommend it as a purchase.
The charm draws inspiration from the Burberry Accessories collections featuring iconic Burberry gun metal check casing and trench-colored outer packaging. Three gun-metal cubes embossed with the iconic Burberry check cascade from a key chain. Cleverly concealed within the largest of the cubes is a convenient serving of Burberry Beauty’s Lip Glow in Nude Beige. The Burberry Beauty Lip Charm offers a natural-looking gloss to create effortless glow with a fluid finish.
