After being dressed by Burberry for the grand store opening in Amsterdam march 2012, I had the pleasure to also try out the newest Burberry makeup line. Of course I wasn`t sure what to expect from this makeup line but I wasn’t doubting a second that if the makeup is being made with the same craft in style with their clothing and perfume, that there wouldn't be a doubt these product will be major. And so I tried some of them out ..
Let`s start with the foundation by Burberry. First of all the texture feels soft and light and it glides directly on your face once you apply it. It gives an even finish with flawless results and the color looks natural on your skin, something I find really important.
The rouge also comes in an amazing make up box with the Burberry stripes and yes also this rouge gives you the perfect spring cheeks. To be honest I am never a real fan of blush since I am always afraid the rouge doesn`t really blend in with my type of skin-color, but this one blends in naturally, you have to scrub it in for a bit so that it`s not too obvious. I am a fan of a natural skin look, I hate the pancake effect on peoples skin so for me it`s a real must that a rouge has a high `blend-in` factor.
The eye shadow is without exaggerating, the best eye shadow I have had in ages! The brown shade with some brilliance in it gives a great shade. For proof see the picture below......
By unpacking the mascara I first thought they gave me the perfume instead, since the mascara package comes in an elegant shell, a package you don`t expect for a mascara. All I can say about the mascara is that it is surprisingly intense in just one stroke! It seals the deal with incredible thickness and intense color. It over sizes your lashes to their longest, thickest effect. One side note is that the mascara congeals in clumps pretty fast so you have to brush it out.
I can definitely state that Burberry didn`t fail with their beauty collection, the products are of the same quality as what Burberry is known for. Elegant, timeless and of high quality!
Thanks to Burberry I also used their rouge and put on their dress while receiving a Dutch Model Award 2012!
