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. Benefit Hoola Lite (P, $29.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Glow Rida (LE, $22.00) is lighter (85% similar). NARS Laguna (P, ) is darker (85% similar). CoverGirl Bronze (200) (P, $9.99) is darker (85% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Tropical Days (P, $48.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Chanel Medium (P, $58.00) is less shimmery, brighter (85% similar). Too Faced Sweet Peach Bronzer (P, ) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). NARS Laguna (P, $36.00) is darker (85% similar). Tarte Park Ave Princess (P, ) is darker (80% similar). Colour Pop Paradise Cove (P, $8.00) is less shimmery, 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 ($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). MAC Pearl Blossom (LE, $22.00) is lighter (85% similar). Makeup Geek Head Over Heels (P, $9.99) is less shimmery, darker, brighter (85% similar). NARS Fervor (Left) (P, ) is warmer (85% similar). NARS Robotic (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% 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.

Burberry Spring/Summer 2016 Runway Highlighting Palettes

Burberry Spring/Summer 2016 Runway Highlighting Palettes

Burberry Spring/Summer 2016 Runway Highlighting Palette ($68.00 for 0.10 oz.) came out in two shades, and they have, apparently, sold out through Burberry’s website (that’s where I bought mine). I’m hopeful that it will–eventually!–make its way to other retailers that carry Burberry, but I’m not positive. They are both limited edition, though. The formula is supposed to be buildable and luminous. Both shades performed well with medium, buildable coverage with a luminous finish that was just shy of emphasizing the skin’s texture (for me). They wore for eight hours on me before fading.

Burberry No. 01 White Spring/Summer 2016 Runway Highlighting Palette ($68.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a crisp, cool-toned white with a frosted sheen. The texture was soft, smooth, and just a smidgen “dry” but didn’t look dry on the skin. It was blendable and easy to apply. The color lasted for eight hours on me. NARS Summer Dual Intensity Blush I (LE, ) is darker, cooler (95% similar). Coloured Raine Fashion Show (P, $25.00) is warmer (95% similar). NYX Liquid Prism (P, $6.99) is less shimmery (95% similar). Anastasia Snow (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). NYX Moon Glow (P, $6.99) is less shimmery (95% similar). Becca Pearl (P, $38.00) is lighter (95% similar). Dior Glowing Pink (001) (LE, $58.00) is warmer (95% similar). Makeup Geek Psychedelic (P, $20.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Anastasia Luna (P, ) is more shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Poudre Lumiere Glacee (LE, $45.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Tarte Champagne Pink (LE, ) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Wet 'n' Wild Where the Dreamers Go (LE, $2.99) is more shimmery, brighter, cooler (90% similar). NYX Ice Queen (P, $5.00) is more shimmery, brighter, cooler (90% similar). BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel Deluxe Edition #18 (LE, ) is cooler (90% similar). Chanel Perles et Fantaisies (Left) (LE, $70.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Trophy (LE, $33.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Make Up For Ever 1 Arctic White (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, less pigmented, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Burberry No. 02 Nude Gold Spring/Summer 2016 Runway Highlighting Palette ($68.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a slightly muted, light-medium gold with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had medium, buildable pigmentation that applied well, blended out easily, and stayed on the skin for eight hours before fading. Dior Glowing Nude (002) (LE, $58.00) is warmer (90% similar). Chanel Camelia de Chanel (LE, $70.00) is warmer (90% similar). Anastasia Bubbly (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Make a Sheen (LE, ) is lighter (90% similar). Bobbi Brown 24 Karat (P, $46.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Cover FX Moonlight (P, $42.00) is lighter (90% similar). Cover FX Celestial (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar). MAC Bare End (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Tarte Gator Wings (LE, ) is lighter (85% similar). Wet 'n' Wild Precious Petals (LE, $4.99) is warmer (85% similar). Anastasia So Hollywood (P, $28.00) is brighter, warmer (85% similar). Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is lighter (85% similar). Laura Geller Gilded Honey (P, $26.00) is darker, brighter, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Sin (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, lighter (80% similar).

If you’ve followed my favorites, you’ll know that I favor more shimmery blush, and specifically, luminous blush. The kind of shimmer that doesn’t read frosted or metallic but more of glowing sheen. Here are some of my favorites of the moment!

  1. Chanel Golden Sun (280) — A Warm Brown with a Luminous finish.
  2. Laura Geller Ballerina — A Warm Copper with a Luminous finish.
