I bought this after reading so many fantastic reviews particularly as a one wash colour. This is a very mediocre shadow. I have dark hair and pale skin and the colour makes me look tired and washed out. I wouldn’t recommend this as a one wash colour at all.

I was so excited for this foundation to launch because the Fresh Glow Liquid foundation is my holy grail! I hoped the stick version would be the perfect companion to the liquid for areas where I need extra coverage, but unfortunately it is not. I have mature skin that is prone to dryness and dehydration which means stick foundations rarely work for me (with the exception of Tom Ford’s Traceless Stick), but Burberry’s Gel Stick was marketed as having “encapsulated water” as well as ingredients that nourish, moisturize, and add glow”. Well, It did none of the above. I tested it with and without the Burberry Fresh Glow Primer and the only difference was the primer added a bit of softness to the finish (but only a slight amount). It was not enough to prevent this foundation from drying the heck out of my face. The SA at my counter was pushing hard for me to buy the FG primer...when I told him I already owned it, he stressed I should be absolutely sure to use it with the Gel Stick. That should have been my first red flag. I shouldn’t have to use a primer to get the effect that a foundation alone is said to give. Don’t market a foundation as glowy if it’s the PRIMER that really provides the effect. Simple, right? Alas, me being me, I HAD to try it...after all, it’s Burberry, and until now, I’ve never had a fail from the brand. Sadly this foundation is not useable for me in any way. Again, keep in mind I’m recounting how this foundation worked for my skin type. PROS--Has a nice cooling sensation upon application. -It feels slightly hydrating at first but the effect only lasts a few minutes-It really does blend easily, both with a brush and fingers-The packaging (plastic and lightweight) has a good closure that snaps shut to prevent the product from drying out or coming open when not wanted. CONS-Dull matte finish-Drying on my skin type (dry/mature)-Began to break up after about 3 hours, began to appear grainy and dry, especially under my eyes-Accentuates both texture and dry spots-Creases and collects in every fine line (and very badly in the not so fine lines!). -Medium coverage at VERY best...had to build feverishly to even achieve this. -ZERO GLOW unless you count the tiny shimmer particles that are totally useless (they don’t show on the skin).I’m beyond bummed about this one. It’s the total opposite of what it’s marketed to be! If they’d have launched this as the “cashmere stick” I think the reception would be much better, because it’s MUCH more akin to the Cashmere Liquid foundation than the Fresh Glow Liquid foundation..Bottom line, HUGE fail for me. I’m inclined to say this foundation would be much better suited for combo/oily skin that has very few lines or textural issues. However the short wear time and the way it separates/pools, make me wonder if it would wear well on oileir skin types either! Basically if you already have perfect skin and want a light coverage, matte formula...ya may wanna try this. If you don’t, save your money.

i was looking for quad of quality shadows to reliably produce a fast and amazing go-to eye look. and i got it! OMG it is love! the shades and finishes are perfect for me. all of the my boxes are checked off with this one.the lightest is a mostly-matte skin-toned base shade perfect for setting primer and blending out other shades. box 1 checked!the 3rd shade is my transition and a perfect matte mauve for me for this purpose. box 2 checked!the 4th shade is outer lid/V/liner and is a satin-matte plum. box 3 checked!the lid shade is described as copper-pink.. like a muted rose-gold. it has, what i deem to be, a pearl finish. nice! box 4 checked!this quad does not deliver a blingy party look ... classy/elegant/sophisticated are better words for it. i suppose it looks and sounds boring to some but i find each of the shades to have the correct amount of depth and also in relation to each other. (hope that makes sense). i had doubt that the lid shade would fit in but it magically does. i can use it wet if i want to punch it up a bit.of course the shadows apply and blend easily and smoothly. after my last palette was a bit of a letdown (dior quint in dream which is all matte), this was a real pleasure to use.pics above are not mine - one is from 'cosmetic proof' and the other belongs to 'color me loud' so thanks to those people
