REVIEW | Burberry February 2016 Show Makeup2:11 PM
Hey all! Today I wanted to share with you another makeup collection in collaboration with Burberry and Sephora which was used in Burberry's February 2016 Womenswear show. I'm so excited to be partnering with Burberry, so wanted to send a big thank you to Burberry for sponsoring this blog post and sending me these to try out! As the designer label is known for, there is a mixture of luminous, wearable makeup with a bit of sparkly edge.
Can we just take a minute and admire that gorgeous Zip-Top Technical Nylon Pouch at the bottom? I am a huuuuge sucker for anything customized and everything from the gold embroidery and weighty hardware to the leather pull and classic black nylon exterior calls to me. It has quickly become my most cherished daily makeup clutch and trust me, I've had plenty!
Moving on to some serious eye candy is the Runway Palette, an illuminating powder for face & eyes. It's imprinted with a floral embroidery pattern used in the February 2016 runway show and can add a golden highlight to cheeks or a pop of shimmery goodness on the lids. It's one of those limited edition pieces that will have you staring at it lovingly every time you open up the case!
Next is the Shimmer Dust Loose Glitter and the shade I have here is Black Glitter No. 02. The girls wore this in a spread under their eyes in a cool-girl, Bowie kind of way. The particles are a steely, black hexagonal glitter which flash rainbow colors depending on the light.
A couple products which have quickly become bestselling staples for Burberry Beauty are the Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base and Fresh Glow Highlighting Luminous Pen which I used previously in my Glowing Foundation Routine Tutorial.
As you can see in the swatch, the Luminous Fluid Base blends into the skin for a healthy look without the sparkly disco effect. For a more concentrated glow, I love using the Luminous Pen to highlight eyes, tops of cheeks, and the cupid's bow above the lips. Both are incredibly easy to wear since they can blend out to a subtle finish.
Three lipsticks used in the show were Burberry Lip Velvets in Damson No. 425 and Nude Apricot No. 401 as well as Burberry Kisses in Nude Beige No. 01.
Lip Velvets, as their name implies, have a velvety matte finish with tons of opacity while Kisses are a hydrating formula with a bit more shine. As we are heading into the Fall season, Damson Lip Velvet was just asking to be worn with a Burberry-inspired simple makeup look. Just a bit of contouring and glow, with a deep berry lip.
