Eye Shadow -Burberry -midnight brown eye shadow

on 12/30/2017 1:21:00 AM

I’ve wanted this color for a while and finally took the plunge. I'm so glad I did. The color is a gorgeous mid-tone, neutral brown, not too warm, too cool, not diluted, nor too pigmented. The color I see in the pan, it the color it stays on my lids. The texture is incredible: it feels like silk and is very lightweight. It’s the most buildable I’ve ever used so I can make it as sheer or opaque as I want. I’d call this eyeshadow a satin finish. There is a shimmer in some lights, but it is so subtle it’s almost undetectable. And I like that’s there’s a generous amount of eyeshadow, some high end brands have the tiniest eyeshadow pans. I will buy this again and I’m eager to try more colors from Burberry.

Lipstick -Burberry -Military Red

on 12/28/2017 12:26:00 AM

"Hall Of Fame Lipstick" The best money can buy. Red Carpet Ready.

Please Note: This is for the regular formulation of the Military Red Lipstick which I consider superior to the Velvet. It has a clarity about it. It is the prettiest shade of Red. But it is unique. And I cannot explain how. It lacks the heaviness of a standard Red, yet it is bright, has depth, and is Red. The lip pencil of the same color is awesome. The duo is "Red Carpet" all the way. I have been devoted to Chanel Reds for more than 20 years.

Chanel has been de-throned. So have the $54.00 most excellent Guerlain lipsticks. I tried other colors, I bought one in a "Velvet". It's good. I never reach for it. Sometimes it's not the whole line, it's a legendary super-star "Hall of Famer color". That is what I am saying here. Reapplication is necessary.

If you lack a lipstick that has some juiciness and oodless of sex appeal - buy this duo now. Feel low and want compliments? Apply and go to grocery store, dog park, Five Star restaurant. Bar. Men will flock in your direction. So will women. BTW it NEVER resorts to sloppy bleeding or any problems that can be inherent in Reds. It's a Top Performer in C,C+C.

Perfumes are very personal and what smells good to someone might smell awful to another. But I must say I LOVE perfume, and this is one of the worst smells I’ve worn. Maybe I’m too young for it (I’m 19) but this made me sick. I smelled it at first and I wasn’t thrilled with the smell, but i thought maybe it might smell different when it dries down. I was wrong! It immediately gave me a headache and it made me ever so slightly nauseous.the notes say peach and apricot I don’t even know what I smells it’s so strange. However, I love Burberry black, and the packaging on this is beautiful! Might work on someone else, but definitely not for me!


Blush -Burberry -Lip and cheek bloom

on 12/13/2017 12:16:00 PM

I had this in "Hydrangea", a bright cool pink.
The texture of this is unique and interesting enough - like a whipped mousse, somewhat spingy/spongy and very silky, silicony and a bit powdery to the touch. Unfortunately, when it comes to the performance, the only good thing I found about this formula is that it has a natural semi-matte finish on the face (kind of like cream-to-powder products, though it doesn't get dry or emphasize skin flakes like many of them do) without that greasy look of some more traditional cream blushes. You can also apply it over foundation or over powder with equal results.

When I pick this blush out of the jar, no matter if I'm using my fingers or a brush, it comes out in strange flakes of product (I even want to call them "lint"), and I have to work hard with my fingertips to roll and smear those flakes around my skin. I also had difficulty blending it around the edges - it seems like no matter what I do, the colour just spreads around my cheeks and sits on top like a stain instead of blending into my skin (though it does fade a bit and looks less garish after 10 minutes or so). Because of this, I found it hard to control where I apply this blush, and it often ends up all over my face in the 18th century fashion.

Some might enjoy the velvety texture or have a better luck applying it than I do, but this blush has another significant downside - it starts fading almost immediately after application and vanishes completely in just a couple of hours, if even that.

On the lips, it looks pretty drab - very sheer, completely matte and short-lasting; however, I never had any luck with "lips & cheeks" products (usually great on the cheeks but too dry for the lips, sometimes great on the lips but too greasy for the cheeks) and I bought this as a blush only, so I'm not knocking down the rating because of this. If you're looking for something to use on the lips, though, I wouldn't recommend this.

So beautiful. It makes your skin look heavenly! I have very dry skin with some red patches, and this evened out my skin. After I powdered and set with makeup spray, this bad boy lasted all day too! I will definitely get a full bottle of this soon!

Blush -Burberry -Light Glow (blush) in n. 2 (Cameo)

on 11/16/2017 1:19:00 PM

foto

Out of the three Burberry blushes I have (Cameo, Earthy and Blossom), this is my personal favourite, and the only one I might repurchase:

I find that all Light Glow blushes have very...interesting colours with complex undertones, and they seem to change on the face or in different lighting more than other blushes I've tried. "Cameo" is not at all the plain old subtle everyday pink I thought I was getting. It's not easy to describe, but "ruddy brown rose" is the best I can do. On the cheeks, it develops quite strong reddish tones (something I don't see in the pan at all), and in warm electric light it turns brownish, with barely any hint of rose. The end result, I think, is similar to that of plum blushes rather than anything in the "pink" category. It also goes on much darker than you'd expect.
As someone who's not a fan of muddy blushes, I was surprised that I liked it. At least for my neutral/waxy yellow fair skin, it's not the best for a "rosy glow" on the apples of the cheeks, but it is the perfect colour for applying along the underside of the cheekbones, away from the ear, or below another rosy blush (a sort of "draping"-lite?). Somehow, the brown tones seem to emphasize the facial structure, and the red/rosy tones make it appear more like the skin's natural colouring and keep it from looking like strange dirty stripes (magic, basically).

Burberry blushes are praised a lot for their pigmentation and texture. I wouldn't say that that's a strictly good or bad thing: they offer way more payoff than the usual sheer-and-subtle high-end blushes, and I have no complains about the quality, but I don't find them as "user-friendly", and can't say that it's my favourite formula (though I'm in the minority here).
I have to be very careful about what brush I'm using (even the softest one picks up a whole lot of product and kicks up a bit of dust due to the buttery texture, and experimenting with the brush included in the compact always resulted in unblendable splotches), or what I'm wearing underneath it (not enough powder or even using a heavier, oilier moisturizer under the foundation made it difficult to blend). As far as 100% matte blushes go, this might be the least flat, muddy and chalky blush I've tried; still, I find them trickier to use in general, and, given a choice, would go for a satin finish.

Lipstick -Burberry -Liquid Lip Velvet

on 11/16/2017 9:34:00 AM

The Liquid Lip Velvet is one of the first Burberry products that I've tried and I must say I am quite impressed. The formula has a light whipped texture and you almost can't even feel it on your lips. The colors are pretty matte but are not drying in the least bit. The colors I have are Oxblood, Regiment Red, Magenta, and Fawn Rose. I love that these don't have a taste at all- no perfume, vanilla, mint or chemical taste. They are all very pigmented but work well on my fair skin tone. I always use a lip primer (Urban Decay Ozone Primer) and I didn't notice any feathering or creasing. These last quite a while without needing to reapply and fade pretty evenly. There isn't much transferring either. For my first Burberry product I am quite impressed. My review video with swatches is here:

Been using this for few years now and it has been my go to perfume. I use it day and night. Every time my friends smell this it always reminds them of me. It smells very clean, not a girly girly perfume (which i love). Def a must try


Fragrances -Burberry -Brit Rhythm for Her

If you love lavender and unisex fragrances, this is one to try.

I was given a decant by a friend, because I was looking for a not too sweet, not too strong, office appropriate fragrance for the office. I'm an oriental and chypre lover, and many of my fragrances are fine in cool weather, but too much for summer, and some of them are just not office appropriate at any time of year (Ciara, Shalimar and Cinnabar, I'm looking at you).

I've now worn this five times.

It goes on very sharp and citrus like, even though citrus is not listed in the notes, I am assuming that citrus tinge is a combination of blackberry leaf, aldehydes and neroli. Give it 10 minutes, and it becomes a cool, slightly metallic, woodsy aromatic lavender, with vetiver and musk grounding it. Definitely a modern, slightly edgy fragrance, let down by the clean "laundry musk" note. By this time, the citrus has turned into blackberry and neroli. There is a faint, mixed floral note which smells a little bit like peony, a little bit like rose, and a little bit like orange blossom. None of these are distinct enough to make a good impression, they just seem to blur together.

All up, I love the concept of this fragrance, but not the construction. It ends up smelling a bit muddled. If I desperately wanted another clean, not too sweet floral for the office, I would go a buy Rosabotanica or L'essence, both by Balenciaga. As it is I have a couple of fragrances that fit the bill. I just wanted something new for summer because I'm a perfume junkie.

On my perfume eating skin, longevity for the edt is fabulous. This lasts all day and more. Sillage is moderate. I've had a few friends give me the sniff test. They all said it didn't work on me, but they all thought it an acceptable office fragrance.

Lipstick -Burberry -Lip velvet in Military Red

Just but it!!! I bet here's no skin tone it would go wrong for!! I tried it on at Sephora while shopping with a friend. It literally lasted me the whole night without any reapply!! Went back the next day to but it! Looks like just bitten lips. Not red lipstick. Usually the lip colors I go for due to my big lips. You more than likely won't regret it!

BB Cream -Burberry -Fresh Glow BB Cream

on 9/28/2017 11:57:00 AM

foto

My experience with this product is different from that of my fair-skinned counterparts. For me, its final application was not yellow, but sheer with a subtle illumination. My typical undertones are cool and pinkish, which has always led me to believe that I should wear a base that has the same undertones. I have been incorrect: on me, a pink-toned base only exacerbates them, leaving a mask-like finish. Out of the tube, this BB cream (in Fair) looks quite yellow, but when it is blended, it disappears completely. It diminishes the redness around my nose and mouth subtly, leaving behind a soft glow. It is only mildly fragranced, which I appreciate. If you have a lot of redness to cover, you'll likely need to look elsewhere, but if you want a soft glow and subtle coverage, I think that this is a good place to start. It's the only Burberry product I own, and it's made me want to explore the line more.

I usually don't like strong powdery scents, I tend to go for gourmand ones (i.e. La vie est belle) but this got my attention.
The packaging it's gorgeus, fancy, and looks incredible on my vanity. I don't know how to really describe the scent, but the longevity of this is amazing (about 9h). Kinda expensive, but I find it perfect for autumn, paired with a scarf and black boots.


Fragrances -Burberry -Brit

This review is for the EDP. This is actually a pretty unusual fragrance for me as gourmands are not typically my favorite. I recently tried another perfume that had almond in it, and while I did not like that particular blend, it made me crave something with a similar almond note. As other reviewers have pointed out, Brit starts out a little sharp and citrusy, but the lime settles down pretty quickly on me and I get a nice almond-vanilla-amber drydown with maybe just a touch of wood. As I said, many gourmands, especially the warmer ones, tend to be too spicy for me, but there's no spice in Brit on my skin. It is warm, inviting, and very comforting without having any kind of spicy kick to it. While I didn't really think that this would be a fragrance that I'd love, I actually do really love it and I think I will be reaching for it a lot during the fall and winter. It is a nice change of pace from the florals, aquatics, green etc scents that I tend to use on a frequent basis and I can definitely see this having a prominent position in my fragrance rotation.
