Burberry Light Glow Blush in No. 3 Rose

Burberry Light Glow Blush in No. 3 Rose
With Flash
More Burberry blushes! I have quite a few more to go through. :D Burberry makes hands down one of my favorite blush formulas so when I heard the word that they might be changing manufacturer, I grabbed one that I wanted out of current line up. It was more of I will get it now in case I want it in the future, but I like it a lot.

Burberry Light Glow Blush in No. 10 Hydrangea Pink

So much Burberry reviews lately! I had been waiting for this for months! Burberry released two new Sheer Glows with their spring launch: Coral Pink and Hydrangea Pink. My initial plan was to get both but two looked pretty similar in several swatch pics. They look very different in terms of undertone so it makes sense to get both. However, the way I wear blushes and given the size of my collection (it's not big. I just like to keep it relatively small), I had to skip Coral Pink. Between the two, Coral Pink is warmer, lighter, and more wearable option for a lot of people. But for me, I was sure Hydrangea Pink would be a much more flattering option between the two.

Burberry Sheer Eye Shadow in No. 21 Midnight Brown

I'm back with more Burberry. This was another raved product that I wasn't sure if I was going to like it or not. I usually love brown shadows. They don't look particularly good on me and doesn't excite me too much. But this one is rather beautiful so let's look into it!

Burberry Sheer Eyeshadow in No.22 Pale Barley and Comparison with Pink Taupe Palette

I absolutely love few Burberry eyeshadows that I have, and Pale Barley is the star. Unfortunately, Pale Barley has been missing everywhere. No worries though. I hear from here and there that it's coming back soon. :) Also if you can't wait, I have something similar in the Burberry line to show you. :) Not exactly a dupe but it looks very similar on the lids.

Let me introduce my favorite eyeshadow palette. This one trumped Guerlain Les Fumes. :) I showed this in a Burberry haul before and promised a review. Here it is!

Bronzer/Contour Powder Comparison Swatches

There's no denying that I am a fan of contouring, so I ended up with more bronzer/contour powder than I should. Taking advantage of that I took a comparison pic. I left out my beloved Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel but I can assure you it's more orange than any of these. Lol

List of products:
Benefit Hoola
theBalm Bahama Mama
Too Faced Chocolate Soleil
Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder in Medium
Burberry Earthy
Nars Laguna

bronzer swatches

Out of these, I contour my cheeks with Burberry Earthy and KA Sculpting Powder the most. When I am using a "cute" blush color, KA doesn't fly. It's too gray. Burberry pretty much goes with every blush color but it won't give me strong contoured look though. Those two have the best quality in terms of how finely milled, blendibility, etc.

When it comes to contouring my forehead, I randomly use the other ones. That partly due to me trying to use stuff up and the fact that forehead contour colors are easier than hollows of the cheeks. 

I like to use Hakuhodo G5521BkSL for contouring my cheeks and it works beautifully. :)

Let me know if you have any questions and hope this helps. :)

Burberry Haul!

\o/ Very excited. :) I already tried one of these, and it's flat out lovely. This picture does not do them any justice. They're much more beautiful in real life. Lol. I am attempting to take better pictures tomorrow in natural light so that I can include them in their reviews. I think I am done trying to use flash to take pics. Anyways, will be back with reviews soon! :)
