Burberry Beauty Spring 2012 Review

The Burberry Beauty Spring/Summer 2012 look celebrates the British Summer with warm shades.  Colour palette inspired by the Burberry Prorsum Spring/Summer 2012 runway collection.

We’re so excited about Burberry Beauty’s Spring/Summer 2012 and had so much fun reviewing each and every piece from the collection.


LIP GLOW $27 Each: (Left to Right) Hibiscus No. 13, Nude Rose No. 14 – These two glosses are sheer, build-able while giving your lips an ultra shimmery finish.  Hibiscus is a perfect gloss to grab and go as well as having an extra in your purse.  I personally love the bright pink tint Hibiscus leaves on my lips.  Nude Rose is perfect to use on top of any lip cover or can also be worn alone to give a very natural look.

LIP COVER $30 Each: (Left to Right) Golden Peach No. 29, Primrose Hill Pink No. 30, Devon Sunset No. 28, Tulip Pink No. 27 – These four lip covers are the perfect hues and just in time for upcoming spring/summer season.  I noticed immediately how it left my lips feeling moisturized and the color lasting for a couple of hours.  Applying the Nude Rose Lip Glow to any of the lip cover hues will give it the extra shine.  What I thought was fun about the lip covers was the magnetic case that automatically closed the lid for you.


SHEER EYE SHADOW $29 Each: Trench No. 02, Pale Barley No. 22 – To create the ultimate natural look, apply Trench as the base on your entire eyelid, then use Burberry No. 9 Socket Line Brush to apply a generous amount of Pale Barley from the outer corner working your way to the mid crease of your lid.

MASCARA $28: Midnight Brown No. 02 – Finish off the natural look by applying the mascara.  I like how this mascara can create a subtle natural look and is build-able to create a more dramatic darker look on your lashes.  I’m very picky about my mascara with a rule that it shouldn’t clump while adding more and does not smudge after wearing for a few hours.  And this certainly passed the test.


LIGHT GLOW $42: Rose Blush No. 03 (Blush) – This blush gives a soft pink hue to the cheekbones and is perfect if you want to create a minimal look.

WARM GLOW $48: Copper Glow No. 02 (Natural Bronzer) – This bronzer can be used alone as on your cheekbones, and sweep a small amount with a brush on your forehead and the bridge of your nose to create a soft, shimmery bronze effect.  It’s also great for sculpting your face.

FRESH GLOW $48 (Luminous Fluid Base) – This has to be one of my favorites for the face.  It gives your skin a gorgeous luminous glow and dewy finish.  It’s lightweight and a little goes a very long way.  I apply a small amount to the top of my cheekbones along with the bridge of my nose.

EYE DEFINER in Midnight Blue No. 4 – I am loving this eye liner that applies on smooth with a creamy texture making it perfect to blend along side your lash and water lines and what’s really cool about this liner is that it comes with it’s own sharpener.  SHEER CONCEALER is liquid comes out through the brush by a few clicks from the base.  A very little goes a long way to cover blemishes and dark circles. This is definitely my new best friend for my not so flawless skin.


For look 1, I wanted to create more of a natural look.  Eyes: I used Trench No. 2 as the base for my eye lid and used Pale Barley No. 22 for my crease and topped it off with Midnight Brown mascara.  Face: I applied Fresh Glow to my cheek bones and the bridge of my nose, then for my cheeks I used Rose Blush No. 3 and sculpted my face with Copper Glow No 2.  Lips: I used Devon Sunset No. 28.

For look 2, I wanted to add a little more drama to my eyes by adding the Eye Definer in Midnight Blue No. 4 and used Lip Glow in Hibiscus No. 13.
