This product didn't do much for my skin. I found the liquid to be sticky and didn't absorb well into my skin. If anything, it made my skin a little slicker. I never get oily cheeks (it's that darned T-zone that gets me), but I find myself blotting within hours of application. I wouldn't say that this was a terrible product, I'm sure that it works well with others, but it was not for me because I just found that it did absolutely nothing.
to start off with - i have oily skin which means i need mattifying foundations and i am very jealous of people who can pull off radiant complexion looks with glowy skin. my current 2 HG foundations are estee lauder double wear light and the burberry velvet foundation. i paired Fresh Glow with the Velvet foundation - and oh my gosh, I was so inexplicably surprised! My face looked literally so fresh and glowy and healthy - without that shimmery slick that i usually get when putting highlighter on top of my oily skin. some people use fresh glow as a primer (and i believe those who have normal to dry skin can) - but for me, I usually put an oil-free primer first, then fresh glow, then the velvet foundation. OR, I get 1/3 of a pump of fresh glow and mix that with 2/3 of a pump of the velvet foundation. both methods give a beautiful finish on my face. my makeup does not slip or slide, and i only need to blot 1-2 times a day. burberry's makeup is really such high quality and the packaging is definitely the best among all high end brands. not to also mention that the pump has a lock - so you never have to worry about any product leaking out when travelling with it.
A bit expensive but you get what you pay for. Very lovely subtle glow that works as a moisturiser, primer and highlighter.
This started to separate within just a few months of opening it. Before that it was very nice. Maybe I got a dud.
How do u spell LOVE??? This stuff is incredible, pricey, but well worth it! As a sixty year old, we need whatever it takes, and this is definatly it!!! Try it ladies you won't be sorry.
I love this. This primer is currently $48 USD for 1oz of product, which definitely puts it in the upper echelon of primers on the market, but it's fabulous. This primer is very fluid, like a liquid foundation and the finish is dewy and luminous. At first, it looks like a slighty frosty champagne color with tiny micro-shimmers, but when you spread it out it just looks shiny and transparent. I can't detect a scent at all, and I don't find it makes me any more oily than usual. It does seem to make my foundation last longer, but only by an hour or two. I use this under liquid foundation and find that it does give a more radiant finish. Plus, the packaging is great- a plastic bottle with a pump, and a metal sheath with the classic Burberry check pattern on it. Too bad it gets covered in fingerprints, but it is still an awesome product!
So far... So good! Gives an amazing glow to my skin before using my Burberry foundation, although it can be used on it's own as well I would say! It isn't sticky or weird feeling once on the skin, and applies very easily with fingers. It has a slight shimmer in it but doesn't make you look greasy or a negative shiny once applied. I think it would be good for all skin types! Although mine is normal, and combination in the summer.
I was skeptical to buy this product because of its high price but my friend told me it makes her look so good with the foundation. The Burberry velvet foundation itself is already an excellent product, but using this primer underneath truly makes your skin glow naturally. People would stop by and tell you that you have really good skin without knowing that you are wearing this magic liquid & Burberry foundation.
While this does give a very luminescent glow to your skin, it is very subtle. I personally mix this in with my Chanel VL foundation. I find that this does give the most beautiful radiant finish when applied alone but mixed or used under the foundation .. it doesn't really show up because the foundation masks the purpose of this illuminator. It smells and feels divine. Very expensive at AUD$70 it makes me feel luxurious and makes my dressing table look incredibly elegant.
First off, let me tell you a little about my skin. I have a sensitive, combination skin - dry on my cheeks and oily on my t-zone.
I had no interests in getting this product when i went to the mall but as I came by the burberry counter, I was drawn to this. When I tried this on back of my hand, I was surprised by its lovely texture and subtle but pretty shimmer. It looked so gorgeous under the heavy lighting. I was even concerned it might make my face like a shiny mirror ball, but when I tried it at home, I was so relieved that shimmer looked so subtle and lovely. It has a light texture which does not make you feel heavy whatsoever. Herego, it's perfect for summer.
I use this product as a highligher under my foundation. I apply this on my cheekbones, under my eyes, forehead, bridge of my nose and a little bit on my chin. I am just thankful that it hasn't broken me out. A lot of base products out there make me break out, so I am just glad it hasn't so far. I think it does act like a primer also because ever since I started applying this product on my t-zone, I dont have to blot my t-zone as often. It certainly controls oil.
As far as the price goes, it is definitely on a expensive side and I do not think it would be a right choice for those who want very visible shimmer on their face. However, if you are like me and want subtle, pretty, lovely shimmer, then this is THE right product for you. And I honestly think that if you apply this as a highlither after your foundation, I am sure the shimmer will be a lot more visible.
I have tried out the benefits' high beam, bobbi brown's highlighter pen, Mac's cream highlighter, and a lot of other powder highlighter, this is my favorite so far. I only gave it a four-star because it is not moisturizing enough. I don't think i will be using this product in winter - I will use something more creamy and moisturizing. But this is just perfect to use it in summer. I hope you find this review helpful. Thanks for reading =)
