Burberry Nude (No. 002) Wet & Dry Glow Shadow

Burberry Nude (No. 002) Wet & Dry Glow Shadow
Burberry Nude (No. 002) Wet & Dry Glow Shadow

Burberry Nude (No. 002) Wet & Dry Glow Shadow ($29.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium-dark golden brown with a hint of gray and a frosted, metallic finish. MAC Force of Nature #1 (LE, $21.00) is darker. Too Faced Rum Raisin (P, $16.00) is warmer. Kat Von D 3AM (LE) is cooler-toned. Makeup Geek Mesmerized (P, $9.99) is darker, cooler-toned. Charlotte Tilbury Fallen Angel #2 (LE) is very similar. Urban Decay Resist (LE, $18.00) is slightly darker. Make Up For Ever I550 Olive Gray (P, $21.00) is lighter, less shimmery. Make Up For Ever D562 Taupe Platinum (P, $21.00) is warmer. Marc Jacobs Beauty Au Revoir (406) (P, $28.00) is a cream product. NARS Dione (P, $29.00) is lighter. NARS Himalia (P, $29.00) is lighter. Giorgio Armani #09 (P, $32.00) is darker. MAC Superwatt (LE, $21.00) is a cream product. bareMinerals A-Ha (P) is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

If you’re a fan of formulas like MAC In Extra Dimension, NARS Dual Intensity, Estee Lauder Pure Color Gelee, or the newest Tom Ford Eye Color Duos, you’ll probably like Burberry’s newest wet/dry formula. It’s very, very similar (as they all are), but I think Burberry’s achieved the silkiest, smoothest iteration, which gives it the best texture of all that I’ve tried. Much to my dismay, I only purchased one of the four shades available, and I managed to snag one more, but the other two are on backorder.

The brand describes the formula as “high-pigment colour with light-reflecting technology.” It can be used wet or dry, with wet application supposed to yield more “vibrant intensity.” Applied dry, it is slightly softer and is easier to sheer out if desired, and applied damp, it darkens slightly and becomes more metallic. The powder is incredibly easy to blend on the skin that it is nearly effortless to get a soft, diffused edge. It’s a denser product that doesn’t feel heavy but adheres well to the skin, which makes it so easy to use. When I tested for wear, the color lasted well for nine and a half hours before creasing slightly.

5 Decadent Highlighters for Spring

When it comes to highlighters that illuminate and add a glowing sheen to the skin without emphasizing pores, I’m obsessed. Every year, there are so many fabulous limited edition highlighters that get released, but thankfully, there are also some excellent permanent options that I never tire of. Here are some of my favorites!

  1. Cle de Peau Delicate Pink — a soft, shimmering pink-beige
  2. Burberry Nude Radiance No. 01 — a sheer, liquid luminizer
  3. Kevyn Aucoin Candlelight — a warm, golden beige sheen
  4. Becca Moonstone — a shimmery, golden champagne
  5. Kevyn Aucoin Starlight — a shimmery, warm peach

Look: Warm Neutrals & Glossy Red Lips for Christmas Day

My Christmas Look (2014)
The fabled Chanel Dragon…

I’ve grown so accustomed to having different eyeshadows on each eye that whenever I apply the same eyeshadows on each eye, I’m a bit taken aback by how it looks to match! I can’t say I wasn’t testing anything on Christmas (namely, the eyeshadows), but I did bring out some of my all-time favorites. 🙂

Look Breakdown

EYES: ColourPop Tea Party applied to inner third of lid, both applied with a narrow brush as well as patted slightly with fingertips. ColourPop Solstice applied to the middle of lid using a medium-sized, eyeshadow brush. ColourPop Sequin applied to the outer third of the lid using the same brush as before. ColourPop To-a-T applied into the outer crease using a synthetic rounded crease brush and buffed above crease towards the brow bone. ColourPop Fleek/Effect (dark brown side) applied into outer crease and diffused slightly above crease. Burberry Trench was dusted underneath the brow bone as a highlighter with a fluffy blending brush. ColourPop Fleek/Effect (teal side) applied with an angled eyeliner brush to the lower lash line with ColourPop Sequin smudged underneath. I used Sephora Blonde Ambition on the water line to brighten.

FACE: Guerlain Parure Gold (02 and 03 mixed equally) mixed with Kevyn Aucoin Celestial applied all-over the face with a flat-topped round, synthetic brush and buffed into the skin. I patted Urban Decay Naked Loose into the skin to help set and finish the base with a tapered powder brush. Tom Ford Love Lust was applied to cheeks to add warmth and color with a feathery blush brush. Kevyn Aucoin Starlight was dusted on top of cheek bones and down the bridge of the nose to highlight. Guerlain Wulong was lightly dusted all-over face to finish the look.

LIPS: Chanel Dragon applied to lips.

Burberry Nude Radiance No. 01 Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base

Burberry Nude Radiance No. 01 Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base
Burberry Nude Radiance No. 01 Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base

Burberry Nude Radiance No. 01 Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base ($48.00 for 1.0 fl. oz.) is a gold-shimmered light beige that gives more of a pearlescent sheen than a distinct shimmer/sparkle. NARS 413 BLKR (P, $30.00) is more shimmery. Illamasqua Aurora (P, $24.00) is similar, but it is a cream. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

It’s described as a “multiuse luminizer” that hydrates while illuminating. It’s a thin, liquid highlighter that can be used all-over the face, mixed with moisturizer or foundation, or patted on top of foundation for more targeted illumination. I find it is easiest to used mixed in with moisturizer or liquid foundation, and it will give your base a more luminous, dewy look that isn’t oily or wet. It is the type of product that I think translates better in-person than in a photo, as it livens up the skin and illuminates it without being flashy or obvious. It’s that “Did you change your skin regimen?” kind of effect. For the holidays, it is available in limited edition, gold-hued packaging, but the shade itself is available in the permanent line-up in its regular packaging (same price). I notice I get a slightly smoother application of my base products as well as a subtle skin smoothing effect when using this.
