Burberry Beauty Spring/Summer 2013

Burberry Beauty S/S 2013

Just as we were about to celebrate the beginning of Spring, we’ve been hit with a full on snow storm.  Not to worry, we can pretend it’s Spring with some of Burberrys newest Spring/Summer 2013 offerings and stay cosy indoors!  Burberry describe the new collection as; "A Powerfully feminine look with glowing shots of colour, inspired by the mood and energy of Burberry Porsum spring/summer runway collection."  This to us is like a grown up, sophisticated version of the usually super sweet girlie spring look, all encased in the most beautiful packaging we have ever seen.


Burberry Beauty S/S 2013

Burberry Complete Eye Palette in Smokey Grey No.1

I’ve never seen a more beautiful eyeshadow palette in my life!  This palette comes complete with a set of three mini brushes and 4 eyeshadow shades to choose from for the perfect smokey eye effect.  I especially love that there are two metallic shades (white and blueish grey) and two matte shades (slate grey and black).  Each eyeshadow is extremely pigmented and easy to blend, I can’t wait to experiment with it, so many possibilities!

Burberry Light Glow Natural Blush in Coral Pink No.9

This is an extremely easy colour to wear and will be a perfect addition to your Spring makeup bag.  Often blushes with a strong colour can be a little too pigmented but this blends so easily into the cheeks.

Burberry Lip Glow Natural Lip Gloss in Fondant Pink No.21

After trying this lip gloss out, it may have changed my opinion on lip gloss.  I’m waiting until the crazy weather dies down as I can’t stand getting my hair sticky from lip gloss but I’m sure this will be a staple during the warmer months.  A very easy colour to wear and layer over lipstick.

Burberry Light Glow Natural Blush in Hydrangea Pink No.10

Beautiful packaging aside this is one of the most pigmented blushes I’ve ever tried.  All you need is a tiny little swirl of this to create a gorgeous rich berry colour on the cheeks.  This one is perfect for evening I’d say as it is a darker more rich colour than the usual pinks I go for.  This looks great just dusted on over some bronzer for an effortless contoured look.

Burberry Effortless Mascara in Midnight Brown No.02

When it comes to mascara I’m usually always a black shade kind of girl, so it was nice to try something a little more natural, especially as I am paler skinned.  This goes on very dark still (which I loved) and is quite frankly the best mascara I have ever used.  This has the perfect consistency in my opinion.  It’s not too wet but it’s not too thick either.  It separates my lashes beautifully and adds just the right amount of volume for daytime, but then builds up for a more dramatic evening look.  I wont lie I will most likely be buying the black shade when payday rolls along.

Burberry Lip Glow Natural Lip Gloss in Cameo No.08

Recently I’ve been going a little lip gloss mad, especially for evenings so this couldn't have arrived on my doorstep at a better time.  If you hate lip gloss because of the sticky gloopy texture then you NEED this.  I’d compare the consistency of this to a balm, it’s so soft and smooth and lasts forever.  The colour of this is a perfect everyday nude/peach that is pigmented enough to wear alone or over the top of some lipstick.

We have fallen in love with these Burberry beauty items, so much so that this is probably only the beginning of our collections!  Have you guys tried anything from the Burberry Beauty range?

    I think the blushes would be the best product to save up for, I've used them almost everyday and haven't even made a dent in them. I can see them lasting forever! - Sami
