Silver Shimmer

Burberry Silver Shimmer Illuminating Powder ($68.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a cool, grayish white base with warmer, golden shimmer, which yielded a more frosted sheen. The texture gave a noticeable sheen to the skin without emphasizing my skin’s natural texture.

It’s supposed to have “buildable, luminous color.” It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which was buildable to full coverage, and with a soft, silky texture, it was easy to apply less or more with a brush to adjust the coverage level. The powder was easy to apply and to blend out, which made it effortless in practice. This shade stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me.

Holiday 2017

Burberry Holiday 2017 Liquid Lip Velvet Set ($45.00 for 0.52 oz.) includes four, miniature-sized liquid lipsticks. I’m a huge fan of the formula–it’s pigmented, long-wearing, and comfortable to wear. The “downside” is the brand claims they last for eight hours, and they tend to last between six and eight hours on average. I found the formula of the shades included in the set to be consistent with their full-sized counterparts that I’ve reviewed in the past (so I did not retest for wear time but ratings reflect the set’s versions for pigmentation, texture, and so forth). Keep in mind, the formula does not have a flat, matte dry down–they have a light sheen that wears down to a satin-to-matte finish after a few hours of wear.

Value

A full-sized Liquid Lip Velvet retails for $34.00 and contains 0.20 fl. oz. or costs $170.00/fl. oz. The set contains $88.40 worth of product.

My Burberry Blush

Burberry My Burberry Blush Palette ($68.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a soft, medium pink with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in one layer but was a more forgiving blush that could be diffused or used with a lighter hand for less coverage if desired. The gold in the background of the powder was just an overspray; all swatches were done after removing the overspray.

The formula is supposed to have a “soft-as-silk” texture that yields a “blendable powder formula [that] can be layered for custom intensity.” I would describe it as a fairly pigmented blush–medium to semi-opaque coverage if used with a light hand or feathery brush–that had a more forgiving texture, so it could easily be sheered out for less coverage or intensity. The finish became more luminous the more blended and diffused the powder was on the skin, but it never appeared noticeably shimmery so it never accentuated the skin’s natural texture. The texture was smooth, moderately dense, but I had no trouble picking up product with softer brushes (like SUQQU’s Cheek). On me, it wore well for eight and a half hours before fading slightly.

Lilac (424)

Burberry Lilac (424) Lip Velvet Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is medium, fuchsia magenta with subtle, cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. The color was good, though it wasn’t full coverage in a single stroke. The lipstick had a very smooth, velvety consistency that glided on with ease and applied even color across the lips. The richness of the hue itself helped to minimize the appearance of the color in my deeper lip lines. This shade wore well for six hours and left a subtle stain behind, while the formula seemed non-drying to me.

The formula is described as a “bold, full coverage” lipstick with a “creamy, soft-matte finish” that is “non-drying” and “comfortable.” The lipstick formula has a very velvety consistency–waxier than like a traditional cream, as it was thinner but never dragged on the lips–with good pigmentation that typically applied evenly. The one issue I experienced with most of the shades I tried (only six) was there was some color that had settled into my lip lines noticeably, whether shortly after applying or as the color wore. Most shades lasted four hours with some that lasted for six hours, and the formula was comfortable and non-drying.
