Asking me to choose my favorite highlighter, by the way, is akin to making me choose favorites between (fur) children (if I had more than one). There were some seriously ga-ga-glowing highlighters launched this year, too! On the blush front, there were some great shades and formulas I tried and tested, but it was easier to narrow those down.
On my skin tone, Earthy is a light dusting of warmth and natural color; it’s a shade I can use as a light bronzer or as a contour. On lighter complexions, it could be used similarly, but it will be more noticeable as a blusher if desired. It will have a tendency to look invisible on darker complexions, because the color itself will be too similar to the natural pigmentation, but it might work as a finishing powder or as a highlighter on deeper skin tones. It doesn’t have an ashy base color, so it won’t look chalky on darker skin tones.
Burberry’s blush stands out for its incredibly soft, silky-smooth, and finely-milled texture. It’s like crushed pearls to the touch. It’s one of the softest blushes on the market, and it’s not even a smidgen powdery. Those qualities enable it to apply beautifully and lay naturally against the skin. It doesn’t look caked on no matter how much you apply, and it blends effortlessly. It has good color payoff, but it’s buildable color, too. Earthy lasted eight hours and had signs of fading after nine hours.
Sometimes products are discontinued or limited edition, which means that a product may no longer be available at one or more retailers so you may need to shop around for those hard-to-find shades! We try to update products as they become discontinued, and if you discover a product has been discontinued, please help us help others by letting us know.
