I popped into Holt's on the weekend and I ended up dropping by the Burberry counter (and leaving with a few goodies).
First of all, Burberry must hate trees. While their packaging is lovely, they package products within boxes within boxes. Quite unnecessary, but given the price, I suppose they want consumers to feel like they got their money's worth.
Secondly, gosh, I'm a sucker for blush. I picked up No.5 in Blossom, it's a gorgeous coral with a hint of pink and shimmer. I haven't yet checked if I have something similar... I probably do since I'm always drawn to this kind of colour. Blush is my kryptonite. Burberry has beautiful blushes, eight in total. Great colours that provide a natural glow. Plus, they apply beautifully.
My other purchase was a set of Lip Glows. Burberry's glosses are quickly becoming my favourite. I love the colour range that Burberry offers. They're all very natural and wearable. The formula is great, too. Non-sticky, comfortable to wear, and even a little hydrating.
This is a bundle of Burberry's top selling shades. I really like this trio because a) the colours are right up my alley, b) all three are full sizes, and c) the price of each gloss is discounted by 20 percent in this set. Expect swatches of everything soon, but I instagrammed a pic of my current neutral lip fave featuring Burberry's Lip Mist in No. 202 Copper and Lip Glow No.9 Nude Beige.
(Ps, see what I mean? Each gloss was individually packaged in boxes within the box the set came in.)
I also got a little gift with purchase, a mini tube of the new Lip Velvet and a mini fragrance. The Lip Velvet is a beautiful reddish pink shade that I'm excited to try.
Lastly are some samples. I thought these were the cutest sample packets I've received in a long time. One is concealer and the other is lipstick. They both come with four different shades and little brush applicators. Adorable.
I really enjoy Burberry's cosmetics, at least the items I've tried (i.e., blushes, lipsticks, and glosses). I love their natural palette, it's classic and timeless. What are some of your Burberry faves? x
