A few days ago, I was talking about Burberry makeup line with Valerie (Ponikuta), how Melbourne has them and not Sydney. She said I should check David Jones out because she's sure that they're already been released in Sydney! So I went to DJ Bondi... and saw the Burberry counter! I was sooo excited! No wonder I couldn't find it in the city! There's only 1 counter in NSW.. only in Bondi!
So I got some stuff from them: the powder foundation, lipstick, and a lipliner.
Burberry Luminous Compact Foundation in Trench no.05
Review: I wanted a compact foundation to replace my Jill Stuart - I use compact foundation mainly in summer and usually ditch my BB Cream because it's too sticky. This compact looks very luxurious - doesn't have that cheap plastic feel - comes with a nice burberry embossed velvet pouch. The packaging gets 5/5 rating from me - I won't lie, that's mostly why I bought these products. When you open the compact, the bottom part will pop up and you can see the sponge! :) The powder is deeply embossed with the Burberry check pattern - and the best thing is you can wear it dry or wet. For dry usage , I just use a kabuki brush for more natural coverage and for full coverage I can just use a sponge. It's very buildable. For wet usage, I just wet my stippling brush for maximum coverage. I must say, the oil control is not that great - but I use a setting transparent powder after foundation anyway so it's alright. The colour is a perfect match - they have 9 shades so you're bound to find your perfect shade! :) It has quite a strong smell... but I don't mind.. like flowery..? So overall - I will repurchase. Even though its on the expensive side (AUD89) the packaging is really, really pretty and you know I'm a sucker for the packaging!
Burberry Lip Cover in Antique Rose No.11
Review: Again, the packaging is super luxe. Loving the magnetic cover, the lipstick itself also beautifully embossed with the Burberry check pattern. The colour is similar to my lips - pinkish beige colour. So when I applied it looks natural - but better. The lipstick is creamy - but not too creamy like YSL Rouge Volupte , and it's an everyday lipstick. It is moisturising - but then it's not really long lasting. But still! I'm happy with this purchase.
Burberry Lip Definer in Rosewood No.07
Review: Okay, I don't really wear lip pencils - except when I wear red lipsticks. I bought this because she put it on my lips and I love it. It just defines my lips and looks really natural! It's creamy and it's not a necessity - but nevertheless I'm happy with this purchase. It just makes the shape your lips look better :)
Here are the swatches of the lipstick and the lip pencil:
Overall - I'm happy with Burberry Beauty. Will purchase more! Especially the eye shadows which I didn't get - the colours look beautiful (and again) LOVE the packaging. Worth checking out.
Here is an FOTD with the lipstick, lipliner, and the compact foundation.
You can barely see the lipcolour, but in real life you can tell that you have lipstick on! :)
