Burberry Earthy Light Glow Natural Blush
Burberry Earthy Light Glow Natural Blush ($42.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a light-medium brown with subtle warm tan undertones. It has the barest sheen in its finish; not matte but not satin. Giorgio Armani #1 is similar but more beige. NARS Madly is darker, more orange. Burberry Russet is darker, redder. MAC Baby Don’t Go is lighter, less warm.
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.
