Burberry Cameo (02) Blush ($42.00 for 0.24 oz.) is one of only five blushes! I picked Cameo because it seemed like it might be one of the natural hues available.
Cameo is dirty rose with a very subtle satin sheen. It can be applied sheerly or built up for a more intense, noticeable cheek. It’s such a natural hue that it’s wearable on both cool and warm skin tones, and it’s so hard for it to look garish. The texture is buttery and smooth, and it applies like a dream–like it melts onto the skin. I had no issues with wear–I wore it for eight hours with no noticeable fading.
The blush comes in the same gunmetal compact with Burberry’s check pattern on the cover and the logo by the opening. It’s magnetic, weighty, and feels luxe when you hold it. It also comes with a check covered velvet pouch for safe keeping. Inside the compact is a mirror and slightly angled miniature blush brush–that’s actually functional. The brush is not only usable, but it works well and feels incredibly soft against the skin. It’s probably one of the best brushes I’ve seen included in a compact that wasn’t full-size.
Though the blush will cost you a pretty penny (but in line with other designer brands like Chanel and Dior), you get much more than the typical high-end brand provides–0.24 oz., which makes it a pricey (by the ounce) as Illamasqua and Smashbox (and significantly less expensive–by the ounce–as Dior and Chanel).
