Burberry Beauty Mini Haul and FOTD

Luxury British fashion house Burberry launched their cosmetics line in June 2010. Available exclusively in Harrods (and Nordstrom in the U.S), the products look too beautiful and sleek to resist.

The colours of their line are natural, light, timeless and iconic. The outer packaging looks very Burberry trench-esque, and the packaging itself is pretty heavy with a very luxurious quality to it. Every item has the graphite coloured metal with the Burberry check on it, and would look great on any dressing table.

From this line I bought the Light Glow Blush in Peony No.04, and Lip cover in Blush No.09.

Burberry Beauty Light Glow Natural Blush in Peony No. 04

The blush is packaged in a heavy shiny granite metal case which comes inside a velvet black pouch. The case looks very sleek and has hidden magnets to help close it. The mirror pretty much takes up the whole size of the case, making it a good sized mirror.

The blush itself is imprinted with the Burberry check. I would describe the colour as a soft, pale peachy pink. It's an absolutely gorgeous colour that I fell in love with straight-away, and would amazing on light coloured skintones.

I really love this blush, and it's now one of my favourite blushes. It comes with a small, good quality brush that feels so soft and silky. The product itself is everything I look for in a blush; amazing buildable colour, sheer texture which is soft and smooth on the skin, and gives my skin a great glow.

Burberry Beauty Lip Cover Soft Satin Lipstick in Blush No. 09

This lipstick is packaged in the super sleek granite coloured cuboid metal case, and closes with a magnetic click. The lipstick itself is also imprinted with the Burberry check.

The colour of this lipstick is a very flattering shade of pinky rose. It has tiny glod shimmer particles in it and has quite a pleasant rose scent.

Here is a simple FOTD using the Burberry blush and lipstick:

I've heard great things about their Sheer Foundation, about how sheer and dewy it is. Their eyeshadows look gorgeous too from what I've seen on beauty blogs, so I will definitely be checking them out next time I'm in London!
