Burberry makeup - My view



Hey dolls, 
 HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope you all had a good one =D 

 Just before christmas I was sent over some things from Burberry (Gasp!) I was so so happy and surprised that they sent me some bits because I am always up for trying new makeup brands especially designer ones! & Burberry is quite the legend. 
They also sent me a Silk trench coat which is BREATHTAKING, I still cant believe it! Im going to feature that in a post soon, I didnt want to take a picture of it without it being part of an outfit! 

 I was sent over; 
Burberry sheer foundation in No.5 
Lip cover in Nude rose No.25 
Effortless Mascara in Midnight blonde 
 Warm glow in Summer glow No.4 
Sheer eye shadow in Porcelain No.3 
Sheer eye shadow in Midnight brown No.21 
Eye definer in Midnight brown No.2 

 The makeup is all round very luxurious and Effortless, The idea I get is that their line of makeup is all about looking natural, glowy and fresh. I feel as though it would be hard to go overboard with the makeup unless you really layer it up or pack it on. 
I love the colours and tones of the makeup I received, Im very into nude shades so Im a fan of everything!

  Foundation: Light coverage and quite a dewy finish, Scented, I like the scent but not everyone might like a scented fondation obviously! Good colour match for me, I maybe could of gone slightly darker though. It stayed on during the day with powder but I like my foundations with a little more coverage personally! Great for summer though. 

  Eyeshadows: The colours are GORGEOUS they have great pay off and are quite pigmented, I love the finish of them, They remind me a little of MAC shadows, The lighter one is like Ricepaper from MAC and the dark brown I dont have a dupe of but is such a stunning, slightly shimmery chocolate brown colour, defiantly one of my favourite browns now.I dont think they are better than the MAC shadows but they are better than the NARS ones i have tried so far in comparison. 

  Bronzer: The packaging of the bronzer and basically all of the makeup is divine, This bronzer I could take out though and use as my mirror and feel fancy! Its a nice colour but dosent show up much on my skin which is a shame, I have tried better bronzers but its good to have to add a flush of colour if I need it. 

   Lipstick: The first thing that I noticed about the lipstick was the magnetic packaging! They sent me over a great shade actually because many colours look odd on me, This colour is again a nude and its a 'your lip colour but better' shade. It is quite light on the lips and you would need to re-apply it during the day but looks very natural and is flattering. 

  Mascara: I was sent over the brown version of the mascara & I dont usually wear brown mascara because I dont see the point but I would purchase this in black, I love the brush and again the packaging feels so high end and fancy! It is see-through which is also different for a mascara and it does work well but as its brown just dosent show up as well as it could 

  Eye pencil: This pencil is lovely its creamy and is dark brown with shimmers, Would work as a great base or to line the inner eyes, not too much to say, a lovely pencil! Not too unique in colour but is easy to work with. 

 Overview: I really love the collection from what I have seen of it, again it is very luxorious and many of the products feel quite heavy, All the packaging has the Burberry check engraved and it is even etched into the powders (Which i feel like I shouldnt ruin haha) I think alot of it is dupeable, as in you can find the same colours elseware if you really wanted to but if you are interested in trying out something from burberry I would definatly recommend it, It is nicely scented and its something you would feel proud to whip out of your makeup bag! 

 Fave products: Eyeshadows & lipstick 
Least favourite: Mascara

 I know this post was VERY long compared to my usual ones but I hope you found it somewhat helpful and maybe its something new to have a gander at! 

 Hope you are all well, 

 Sammi xoxo

How do you like the burberry body? I work at Macy's in the fragrance department, and that bottle especially the lotion always looked so intriguing. I tried it but I didn't like the scent on myself:(

Marion said...

I feel very jealous right now. Anyways, I'm looking forward to using those stuffs and wearing a new Women's Safari 4-pocket Belted 2-piece Pant Suit for my job application tomorrow. Wish me luck.
