It seems that every major fashion house has to branch out into the beauty sector, with the likes of Chanel, Giorgio Armani, and D&G doing so well I don't know what took Burberry so long! Who's next?
The Burberry packaging is as sleek as you would expect it to be, it feels very luxurious and the reflective metallic packaging with the subtle Burberry print looks very nice, I'm glad they didn't do it in a more obvious way.
Below we have the Lip Glow in 'Heather' which is a dark plum shade with a cream finish, I wore it today and I have to say it's not my shade - I would say this would suit a more mature woman. On the good side, it's not sticky and feels really moisturising on the lips.
The Sheer Eyeshadow in 'Porcelain' is a small compact with a mirror, it also has a black velvet pouch.
The colour is a pale champagne, in terms of Mac it's a combination of 'Ricepaper' and 'Naked Lunch'. It's a nice highlight or all over lid colour. It's nicely pigmented, I'm not sure why it's called 'sheer'? It's finely milled and not chalky.
Here are some swatches...
What do I think? It's beautiful and high quality but it's just not my cup of tea. I feel like it's aimed at the more mature wealthy woman! It would be nice to see the other colour options, I'm sure there's a nice nude lipstick and hot pink lipgloss for the younger lot. :) I'm sure many people who are Burberry lovers will be ecstatic and want everything but this range doesn't wow me and I wouldn't recommend spending your money on it as I think there's better.
Available exclusively at Harrods from 12th July in the UK . Prices start from £15.
