Burberry Gold Pearl Eyeshadow

Burberry Gold Pearl Eyeshadow
Burberry Gold Pearl Eyeshadow

Burberry Gold Pearl Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.088 oz.) is a pale, yellowy beige with subtle gold sparkle. MAC Dazzlelight is frosted and lighter. Wet ‘n’ Wild Comfort Zone #1 is a bit lighter and frosted. Wet ‘n’ Wild Sparkle ‘Til Morning #1 is similar in color but metallic in finish. It’s kind of like Trench, Porcelain, and Gold Trench combined.

I didn’t love the texture; the base color was on the powdery side, while the sparkles didn’t quite bind with the base color, so they tended to flake or disappear during application and later on, during wear, I experienced fall out of the residual sparkles that did make it on the lid. Part of the “appeal” of a product like this is the sparkle/shimmer, so if you can’t actually see it on the lid, because it winds up trapped in the brush or underneath your eye, you’re really not getting the “pigment” you’d expect when seeing it in the pan.

The color can be easily used as a sheer wash or applied more heavily; that is one of the best features of Burberry’s eyeshadows is they are so soft, they can be done sheerly, but they’re so dense, that they can be applied with full coverage without having to layer or pack on the product. Because the sparkle isn’t jam-packed into the product, there isn’t a lot of fall out, but I felt like 90% of the sparkles wound up underneath my eye. The underlying base color wore well, though, and it was fully intact after nine hours of wear without any signs of fading or creasing (no primer).

Burberry Hydrangea Pink Light Glow Natural Blush

Burberry Hydrangea Pink Light Glow Natural Blush
Burberry Hydrangea Pink Light Glow Natural Blush

Burberry Hydrangea Pink Light Glow Natural Blush ($42.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a darkened raspberry pink with a barely-there satin sheen. Tom Ford Narcissist is pinker, brighter. MAC Supernova is more shimmery. MAC Amazon Princess is darker, more plum.

This spring, Burberry’s bringing intense colors to their otherwise more muted/softer range–and boy is Hydrangea Pink pigmented!  It’s rich in color and a little goes a long, long way. Just a light tap of the brush on the powder yields intense color on the cheek, so I definitely recommend using a light-hand and a feathery brush when working with it initially.  Because of it’s soft, velvety texture–so smooth it almost feels like a cream–it is blendable once on.  When I wore this shade, it lasted for well for nine hours with no signs of fading.

Cooler complexions should see a bigger difference between this and Coral Pink, the other shade launched for spring.  When blended out on my skin tone, I found them just barely different.  The more extreme you are in your cool/warm undertones, the more likely you’ll be able to tease out the nuances in undertone when these are sheered out. (The more intensely you wear these, the more you’ll see the difference between the two, as well.)

Burberry Coral Lip Glow Lipgloss

Burberry Coral Lip Glow Lipgloss
Burberry Coral Lip Glow Lipgloss

Burberry Coral Lip Glow Lipgloss ($27.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a brightened orange with a hint of coral and copper shimmer. MAC Geo Pink is pinker. MAC Eclectic Edge is more orange, darker. MAC So Bad is similar but less shimmery.

As part of an attempt to bring more vibrant/pigmented shades into Burberry’s range, Coral is a nice addition–it’s semi-opaque to mostly opaque with some translucency where the natural lip color will come through but is covered for the most part. It applied evenly and smoothly, without settling into lip lines, or feathering/bleeding during wear. I didn’t have any issues with the shimmer traveling during the four and a half hours this lasted on my lips. It’s somewhat hydrating–not the most hydrating but not at all drying. Burberry’s Lip Glows are non-sticky, gel-like, and are a cushion-y, comfortable gloss to wear that has a light floral scent.

Burberry Coral Pink Light Glow Natural Blush

Burberry Coral Pink Light Glow Natural Blush
Burberry Coral Pink Light Glow Natural Blush

Burberry Coral Pink Light Glow Natural Blush ($42.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a subtly warmed-up dark pink with a hint of coral. It has a soft, satiny finish with a barely-there sheen. MAC Whole Lotta Love is lighter. MAC Supernova is more shimmery, less warm-toned. MAC Mocha is slightly more subdued. NARS Amour is more coral.  Worth noting:  I couldn’t see much of a difference between Coral Pink and Hydrangea Pink (the other shade released in the collection) once applied and blended out. I bought both to review, but I don’t think both are necessary if you intend to wear them sheered out–I do think the nuances will be better seen on cooler skin tones, though.

Again, one of Burberry’s aims for their spring/summer collection was to introduce “radiant colour” into their range. Coral Pink is incredibly pigmented–if you are a fan of NARS’ richness in their blush range, you’ll appreciate the intensity found in the newest addition to Burberry’s blush range. I highly recommend using a light hand or a feathery brush for application.  The texture of the powder is soft as silk, finely-milled, and applies smoothly and evenly (Burberry’s blushes are some of the softest, most velvety powders I’ve come across).  It’s blendable once applied, and Coral Pink wore eight hours well but had some signs of fading after nine hours.

Burberry Pink Sweet Pea Lip Glow Lipgloss

Burberry Pink Sweet Pea Lip Glow Lipgloss
Burberry Pink Sweet Pea Lip Glow Lipgloss

Burberry Pink Sweet Pea Lip Glow Lipgloss ($27.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a vibrant fuchsia pink with subtle cool undertones and iridescent fuchsia micro-shimmer. Estee Lauder Violet Rain is a bit bolder and has a much larger shimmer (more like glitter). MAC Gimme That! is redder. NARS Hot Wired is also redder.

Burberry’s spring shades are an “introduction of radiant colours” to the brand’s beauty range, with Pink Sweet Pea meant to be a “playful” shade. I put that out there, because the Lip Glow formula is also described as “a hint of color” normally. So, good news to those who love more pigmented and opaque glosses, because Pink Sweet Pea is certainly that–semi-opaque to mostly opaque with an underlying translucency that gives the natural lip color an opportunity to peek through. Based on Burberry’s spring/summer collection, which is what the spring beauty range is supposed to have drawn inspiration from, everything is bold, bright, and colorful.

It is a really lovely gloss formula that’s gel-like and cushion-y when worn.  It’s a comfortable gloss to wear, and it’s lightly hydrating–it’s not going to outdo a dedicated lip balm, but it won’t leave you reaching for the nearest lip balm for a few hours post-wear.  It’s non-sticky and it has a floral scent, and while I’ve experienced it at a higher potency in other Lip Glows, it seemed subtler here.  Pink Sweet Pea wore four and a half hours on me.
