Fragrances -Burberry -Brit

Burberry Brit EDP was the first perfume I ever fell in love with. When it came out in 2003 I could never find the money for a bottle. In hindsight I wish I had found the money because it probably would have been my signature scent all these years. I finally purchased a 3.3oz in 2015 before they changed the design on the bottle. I’m so happy to have it in my collection, for both scent and nostalgia purposes. Brit EDP has such a pleasant scent. I’ve always described it easily as Italian almond biscotti cookies drizzled with fresh lime juice. It’s sweet but balanced with the tart freshness of the lime. It’s not too sweet, not too foody, not too tart, not too citrusy. Also, Brit EDP works year around. Most people think it’s best for Autumn, but I think the freshness also makes it fitting for spring and summer while the gourmand aspect makes it great also for winter. You could wear Burberry Brit to work or school during the day and also to parties and dates in the evening. It’s youthful but not immature. Burberry Brit really has no age and it also doesn’t seem dated to a specific period of time.

Sillage and longevity are moderate. Burberry Brit EDP isn’t too strong and shouldn’t offend anyone. I can faintly smell it on clothes in the hamper, so it does have lasting power on fabrics. I’ve noticed that Nordstrom no longer carries Brit online and that Sephora is cutting back bottle size offerings. Ulta and Macys still carry all the Burberry fragrance offerings including Brit, so that’s nice to know. I hope Burberry isn’t planning on discontinuing Brit or any of their other perfumes. IMO Burberry makes pretty good fragrances.

Burberry Brit EDP is a great fragrance and will always be close to my heart. I think it’s a safe blind purchase for yourself or as a gift.

Fragrances -Burberry -My Burberry Black EDP

Smells almost makeup-y in the bottle (a mood I really like) but on the skin a citrus note overpowers the creamy musky notes and smells like harsh edged grapefruit, or something that might scent a bathroom cleanser. Its not a pleasing combination. Nope.


Mascara -Burberry -Cat Lashes Mascara

No.3 Midnight Blonde is very nice greyish brown, if usual black mascaras are too bold for your color type.

I don't like the cubic packaging, it's very long and big for only 7ml of product, and its sharp edges are unpleasant to touch and almost cutting a hole in my cosmetic bag..

As a fond of classic straight fiber wands (which I can press to the side when opening the mascara to remove excess), I absolutely HATE this plastic one. There is always too much product and the bristles are too sparse and make clumps.

So I have to keep this mascara at home and use it with other old mascara's wand. What a pity, because the stuff inside seems good and easy to work with, is not too dry or thick.

Fragrances -Burberry -Weekend

Aaaah Weekend. It is a beautiful antidote to the dank, damp, rainy weather we have had in New England lately. It didn't help that I haven't been feeling 100% lately ( and trying online dating...what a minefield. Don't do it if you don't have to). Needless to say, it's put me in a foul, witchy and downright man-hating mood. None of my perfumes have managed to "perk me up" at all. Then I saw the bottle of Burberry Weekend that I had purchased a few weeks ago. Hey, it's the weekend and it's a dry 70F weather day. Almost feels like an early "F" word day.(I mean Fall; don't want to even think about it yet). Weekend is like smelling ripe, juicy nectarines drizzled in honey. There is no honey listed in the notes, but I swear I smell it. I also don't get the hyacinth or any powdery notes. It's straight up sweet fruity juiciness. It's really a spirit lifter. I haven't felt this good in days. I find the lasting power excellent. I dabbed some onto a cotton ball; applied it to my pulse points and then tucked the cotton ball into my bra . I keep getting lovely wafts of Weekend. I've read about reformulation; frosted bottle vs clear one. I haven't noticed any difference. You can either dress up or down with this scent. I'm easily "kicking around" today in a tank top and a pair of my favorite shorts. It would be effortless to wear it to a nice late summer/early Fall wedding with heels and pearls. Laid back, yet classy. Well done, Burberry... Thank you, too for making my day!

Lip Gloss -Burberry -Kisses sheer Oxblood 293

This review is for the shade English Rose. I love both the color and finish. It's a glossy, supremely moisturizing, gorgeous formula. It's closer to a lip balm because of its balmy texture. Completely non sticky. Feels like butter. The color is amazing too, really compliments my light neutral skin tone. I use it of the Lip Contour in Fair, which is my favorite lip liner. The reason why I don't give it 5 lippies is the amount of product you get and the packaging. It's only 2 grams, which is SO little, especially with this kind of product that you have to reapply consistently throughout the day. I also find the packaging a bit cheap, because it's mostly light plastic and it feels light in the hand- for the price point, I'd expect more. I'm honestly torn about this, but I might repurchase- that's how much I love this formula!


Eye Shadow -Burberry -Eye Colour Contour Smoke & Sculpt Pen in Midnight Brown

on 8/3/2018 2:07:00 PM

These are closest to Laura Mercier Caviar sticks which among the cream shadow sticks offered are the best. I chose two of these (Midnight brown and Dusky Mauve) to have different colour options and they fit into my wardrobe but only in a small way. Midnight brown is very close to Bobbi Brown's shadow stick in Stone though Stone is cooler. LM Cocoa is similar to Midnight brown but Cocoa is slightly coppery and is a prettier look for my blue eyes though I think it would enhance brown eyes better also. Dusky Mauve is very close to Bobbi's Dusty Mauve though BB is more plum. The Burberry products blend just as well as LM. With the exception of the two colours mentioned BB overall do not blend very well (Bark, Vanilla, Taupe). So if you are in the market for these two shades, both of which are very natural (neutral is relative to an individual's complexion) the BB are cheaper and perform the same in every way. I use Midnight brown on the outside of my eye and to line the lower lid with Dusky Mauve in the crease.

I found the product nice. But its packaging is not safe. As of other products from Customboxeszone

I was excited to try it, as I saw all this raving reviews. But unfortunately I do not think this mascara is so good.
I got mine in black, which is not a deep black colour, but rather black with some hints of grey\green\brown.

The packaging is really nice - you can open and close it without any issues. The mascara itself is rather thin and wet, and smells a bit like perfumes, which bothered me at first, but then I got used to it. It did not irritate my eyes or skin - I feel very comfortable when wearing it.
In general it stays on whole day as long as it is fresh. When it starts getting older and drier, staying power is not so impressive - I could see some black dots and marks all-over my eyelids. I know, they are oily, but many mascaras can resist it.

And the final thing - the brush. I hate it. If the brush would be different, I would rate it min. 4 stars, but this brush was killing each morning. I could not find the method to get the right amount of mascara to transfer with brush to my lashes. It's not the problem of the brush is getting too much product, no - it is the issue of how the brush delivers the product to your lashes. This "how" changes even with a slight change of the way you keep the wand or in an angle the brush follows the lash line.


So very often I had to fiht spider legs and clumps, so, no - thank you. I will try to fins something different.


Foundations -Burberry -Fresh Glow Foundation

I bought it because I thought Lisa Eldridge mentioned it as a pale foundation (later I found out it was probably a different one, which is now discontinued. I am about NW10- NW13 in Mac, and shade 11 is way too dark for me. Another “porcelain” foundation that is just orange.

If you are darker than me and have normal to dry skin and have 50€ to spare, you’ll like it

As a previous reviewer, I also got a sample of this.
Initially, it smells like a men's cologne from 90's, I can smell different perfume notes for a minute or so, but in a minute it transforms into one note sweet overpowering smell.
I rarely like sweet fragrances, they often give me a headache and this one isn't an exception.
One time wear was enough for me, there is no chance I will ever use it again.

So far have been using this foundation for 2 weeks and I really like it. It does a good job of making my skin look even and perfect. The make-or-break is that it lasts through the day. I wore it to a sunny outdoor wedding and it held up pretty well. I have normal / combo skin so tend to get shiny looking pretty fast, but not with this. Also like how it feels going on the skin –kind of a cooling/refreshing sensation which is nice. It’s a bit more matte than I would have expected but personally don’t mind that. It goes on more medium-ish coverage I would say. I definitely add a few more strokes to make it higher coverage but can see it working for someone that likes to sheer their foundation out too. I don’t use this as a concealer, even though it is marketed as one. Just prefer something with more coverage and precision for that. Also love that you can throw this in your bag. Overall recommended!

Fragrances -Burberry -Touch

I received this fragrance for Christmas and was initially a bit apprehensive. I am 58 years old and not fussy about a lot of "new" (read created after 1990:) fragrances. Lately I have been all about fresh & citrus-y fragrances.

This one is lovely though. Not too sweet and not too sharp-very well balanced. Fresh while also feeling warm. It had a hint of powder but not old lady powder. Also a bit peppery to start then a bit woodsy and also whiff of floral..

It is soft and feminine and inoffensive. I would say it is a classic type fragrance & I love it.

You really need to give this product a chance by getting the makeup artist to apply it to your face in the store. It doesn't look/feel great on your hand for some reason, but once you get it brushed on it feels weightless and blends flawlessly into your skin.

I was hesitant at first as it looked like a weird color on, but once it was blended it looked really good. It's got a color correcting element in it so that's why it doesn't immediately match perfectly with your skin.

The MA helping me did use the Burberry Fluid Base primer under it. The combo looked really natural and glowy on my skin. My friend actually decided to try it/buy it on the spot too based on how good it looked on my skin.

Really recommend it - it's a stick so it's easy to apply and easy to take with you anywhere.

I absolutely love this scent. It’s light and fresh. It’s almost like fresh air. I always get compliments on it. People usually mistake it for a really nice soap because it’s so clean. I use it when I skipped showering. (Add a little dry shampoo and no one is the wiser.) I only demoted it to a 4 because the scent completely evaporates in 2 hours. I HAVE to spray it on my hair or put down a lotion base first. But it has to be an oily lotion to grab the scent. I think that makes it a little tedious to use. I use the spray but then I carry the rollerball in my purse because it WILL need a refresher.
