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.
I wanted to replace my Becca Shimmering Skin Perfectors with something lighter...much lighter. Becca's highlighters are beautiful, but as I get older my skin looks better with very light, almost invisible products. Ever since I switched to a BB cream I just want my skin to look like real skin, like you truly have nothing on, but still fresh and glowy. Fresh Glow serves that purpose.
I've only used this as a highlighter on my cheekbones, nose and chin. As I use a BB cream I don't need a primer anyway. The product itself is like a gel, very light and blends completely into the skin if you rub it in. Only with a magnifying glass could you see the shimmer particles. To get a highlighting effect, I patted the product onto the skin and used 2-3 layers. It did not disturb my BB cream and since it's also a primer, it dried fast and lasted all day.
Compared to Becca's SSP in Pearl specifically, Fresh Glow is much, much lighter in texture and much less glowy, producing a minimal highlighting effect. It really just looks like "freshly washed skin" or that satiny look of babies' skin when it catches the light. I'd probably have no use for it 10 years ago as the effect is very subtle and some might say non-existent, but it suits me now.
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.
