Burberry Tangerine Natural Blush Review, Photos, Swatches

Burberry Tangerine Natural Blush

Burberry Tangerine Light Glow Natural Blush ($42.00 for 0.24 oz.) is new for spring/summer, and it is a darkened, pink-tinged peach with a mostly matte finish. The Light Glow line is designed to deliver softer, more natural color, so the pigmentation level on this blush is right on target–the color payoff is there but it’s not intense or overdone.  Initially, it seemed like it was too close to Burberry’s Russet, but this is pinker, less brown. It’s not as plum as MAC Darkly My Dear Blush. It’s pinker than Chanel Espiegle, which comes across as more of a true peach in comparison.

It’s called Tangerine but there’s no accompanying official color description, and this is kind of tangerine, but it’s not the first color I’d think of when I hear the word “tangerine.”   I think it’s close enough, and with the way it’s muted down, in line enough not to merit any point deductions.

It’s a soft, easy-to-wear color on both warmer and cooler skin tones, because it’s very much a natural color, and it applies softly without being invisible. I found it impossible to overdo blush with this product, which makes really easy to use. It has a soft, finely milled texture that allows for effortless blending. You won’t have to worry about diffusing harsh lines at all, because the color stretches and blends with a seamless result.  It wears for around eight hours over foundation before beginning to disappear.

I think Burberry has done a stellar job on packaging their line, because they provide the heft of high-end with a metal compact that has the brand’s signature check printed on the outside (as well as on the powder itself).  Many high-end brands like Chanel and Dior house the majority of their products in plastic, and for $42, it’s nice to see something else.  It’s compact, sturdy, slim and portable.  It comes with a nice-sized mirror along with an angled brush (that’s actually soft enough and shaped well to make it usable).

I’m not sure I could force myself to spend $42 on a blush, but this one is gorgeous. I’ve been loving matte blushes lately and I’m having a hard time finding one that isn’t too powdery. Here I am justifying a $42 blush to myself- If it’s really what I’ve been looking for and I would wear it a lot, I guess $42 would be worth it!

I love this blush–so glad you did a review! The Burberry counter manager used this on me when I was testing the foundation and it was instant love. The foundation is awesome by the way, especially for us older women–a pretty dewy finish.

I realise you probably wouldn’t know Christine, but I’m wondering if any of the commenters can tell me where/when Burberry beauty will be available in Australia? I know it’s coming.

They are available online if you select Australia on I didn’t see any cosmetics at the new Burberry store in Sydney (George St) though.

This is one of 2 typical shades of blush I reach for…this peachy,natural,pinkish shade – this and I keep a mauve around and these are the ones I reach for 99% of the time. I have some reg gel that I like when I am pretty much bare faced.

I deliberately removed price, because you are the only one who can judge what is worth it/not worth it for you. The price doesn’t affect the quality of the product itself–and really, that is my focus. You might find it ridiculous, but there are many who don’t.

Christine, I agree with your philosophy on this one. Price is not a factor – expensive products shouldn’t be rated lower just because they are, just as cheaper products shouldn’t be rater higher.

Huh, if I had to pick a citrus fruit to name it after, based on the swatch, I’d probably have gone with grapefruit.

Also nice to hear the brush is worthwhile. Though I occasionally see people on sites like Sephora complaining when a product lacks an applicator (like some of the UD eye palettes), I’d rather them leave out an applicator if it isn’t useful.

Burberry makeup is surprisingly good in quality .I have eyeshadow, foundation, blush, lipstick , bronzer etcetc. I love everything. Maybe only lipstick isn’t perfect enough.. It s good quality in terms of colour pay off, texture but some colour actually melt and break easily. A bit like some of the estee lauder lipsticks. And the taste to me is like chinese medicine. a bit bitter. But I recently heard that called rose taste and seem lots of people like it.
I didn’t expect this quality at first due to the fancy packaging and not too over the top price tag. As I would expect a higher price range from a luxury brand if the packaging is fancy too. Ex Guerlain. You actually pay lots more then actual product for the fancy look and those complicated pattern palette.

Wow! Will def be purchasing this one! Looks gorgeous on you! I have like… 10 peach blush :p but i still want this one, looks gorgeous in you!
I own their eyeshadow liquid fdt and powder fdt, all amazing products! I’m sure this one will be good, thank you for your recommendation!
And really agree on the fact that price shouldnt be taken into account, its the quality that I’m interested, whether or not it is worthed it should be decided by us customers 🙂
