SPRING BEAUTY WITH BURBERRY

So this post isn't about new spring beauty launches from Burberry, but instead about some recent additions to my collection which i feel are perfectly apt for spring and summer. I was kindly treated to some Burberry Beauty bits for my birthday by my parents, and after swooning over the packaging for a while i finally gave them a go and so thought i would share them with you. 

As always, i am so in love with everything. From the incredibly luxe, eye catching, yet simple packaging to the beautiful formulas and great shades, i pretty much feel like Burberry can do no wrong. I feel like they are one of the best high end beauty brands on the market, even though they are often overlooked. I think this may partially be due to the fact their products aren't so readily available, but if you live in London i highly recommend visiting their Beauty Store in Covent Garden - Its perfectly laid out, the service is amazing and you can swoon over their accessories whilst you're there. I've also ordered from their website a couple of times, which is a breeze with free next day delivery, and comes complete with high quality packaging so you know your pieces will arrive safely.

I've only used a few of the products for this look as i wanted to really showcase my favourites. This look is more of an every day look for me. Most days i tend to use a good coverage foundation and concealer, a brush of bronzer and highlight and a dash of powder, before finishing off with bold brows, a sweep of cream eyeshadow, lashings of lengthening mascara and a nude lip.

These products fit in perfectly with my everyday look as the Eye Colour Cream Shadow in Mink blends out easily to create a sheer wash of bronze colour which is definitely build-able and very long lasting, and the Burberry Kisses Sheer Lipsticks are soft and hydrating. They are so pigmented considering the soft creamy texture. They don't last the longest amount of time but considering how much of a pleasure they are to use, i really don't mind. I actually don't really need to use a mirror with these as long as i've lined my lips in the morning! I'm wearing the shade English Rose here which is a pinky nude.

One thing i didnt wear in this photo was The Burberry Complete Eyeshadow Palette. I love these palettes are probably my favourite to use. The colours are so soft, buttery and easy to blend. They are a little sheer but in the best way possible. You can apply a dusting for a wash of colour and subtle definition, or build up a couple of layers for a real smokey eye which still looks perfectly blended and applied. This palette is more daytime appropriate than my other one. It contains 4 shades which remind me of muted garden shades. You've got a cool brown, a light muted pastel khaki brown, a light blush pink and a light cork colour. They all work perfectly together to add a little colour to the eye without being too much. it really is a truly interesting shade range!

I would say my favourite of them all is actually the Fresh Glow Compact Luminous Foundation (i use it as a powder), which seems like a bit of a boring choice. Its actually brilliant! I have the shade Rosy Nude and although its described as a foundation, its definitely very sheer and much more like a powder. It conceals redness, takes away shine, smooths everything out and gives you the most natural skin like finish. Its by no means glowy, but its definitely not matte either. If i'm in a rush i can apply this once in the mornings and be done, but it really does prolong the wear time of my makeup if i apply it in the day once or twice too.

So all in all, an amazing selection of products for a really natural and perfected daytime look. I am so in love with all things Burberry Beauty, i can't wait to try more. Have you tried anything? If so, what products are your favourite?
