Burberry Russet (01) Blush Review, Photos, Swatches

Burberry Russet Blush (Look breakdown here)

Burberry Russet (01) Blush ($42.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a softened rust-brown. When blended out, it’s just a hint of red-toned brown, but it can be layered on for a deeper shade that looks most rust-like. On my cheeks, it looks like a bronzer with a lil’ kick to it–not quite a flat or shimmering brown or bronze, but it gives my cheeks more warmth and dimension. I like the soft, finely-milled feel of the powder, and it applies smoothly without looking powdery. Burberry’s blushes look incredibly natural on skin, and they’re easy to sheer out or build up for a stronger cheek (but never an ultra intense cheek).

It’s packaged in a hefty gunmetal compact with a soft, bristled brush that actually works (though I’ll still stick with my regular brushes) and doesn’t feel scratchy against the skin. Burberry’s signature check pattern covers the front of the compact, and the logo is on the side. This blush comes with a good amount of product–around 30% more than your average high-end blush compact, actually!

Beautiful blush! I was wondering if u have ever tried bangs in ur hair?? I think it would look all good on u. Sorry for the random question. Just wondering.

Wow, this look’s super awesome on you. I love it. I wouldn’t have thought it would turn out that way, it looks more like a sheer color in the box.

I tried on Blossom last time I was at the Burberry counter. I LOVE it. It has great buildable pigment. Again, I am pleasantly surprised on how much I love this line. I’m not even a real big fan of the Burberry fashion/accessories line itself.

What a gorgeous look all over. Love this blush too. It is so flattering.
I must admit, I always apply blush with a very light hand since I’m forever worried I might end up looking “clownish”.
This is totally beautiful.
