I recently had the pleasure of previewing the new Burberry counter at Sephora in Square One! Burberry has now joined the Sephora family, offering a wide range of gorgeous and classic beauty products. The collection includes a wide range of foundations, powders, lip products, and cheek products, as well as the Autumn 2015 limited edition collection.
I got to play around with some of the products in the store, as well as getting my makeup done by the Burberry makeup artist!
Just in case you’re wondering, lots of samples were missing from the counter because makeup artists were demonstrating them on people!
The Burberry beauty collection was primarily focused on their gorgeous base products. Based on their iconic trench coats, the base makeup and foundations are fresh, effortless, waterproof, and light to wear. The Burberry Cashmere foundation comes in 14 different shades! Effortlessly buildable and blendable, the creamy texture melts on to the skin for a soft-matte finish and lightweight, weatherproof result. For reference, the MUA used No.20 Ochre on my skin. She also used the Face Contour Pen to contour my nose, cheekbones, and jaw, followed by the Fresh Glow Pen to add a soft highlight.
The foundation was so lightweight and comfortable, yet had a great medium amount of coverage! Definitely less noticeable than my current Revlon Nearly Naked foundation, which has a creamier texture.
Quite a large selection of lip products. Burberry offers two different types of lipsticks – the Burberry Kisses Satin Finish lipstick, and the Lip Velvet Soft Matte lipstick. Very nice finishes and again, very pigmented. The satin and matte finishes were not drying on the lips. The mattes have some great colours for autumn! Also a great selection of glosses for a high shine finish – Burberry Kisses gloss and First Kiss lip gloss,
Absolutely in love with these cream blushes. These Lip and Cheek Bloom pots have a lovely, almost moussey consistency. When applied to the cheeks, they become a soft powder. The colours look quite bright but apply sheerly and have very buildable coverage. The orange one is right up my alley! The MUA applied No.5 Peony (bottom left) to my cheeks, and it was a very pretty colour!
The Autumn/Winter 2015 runway collection had a very military / camoflauge theme. Lots of greens, khakis, nudes, and champagnes. The runway eyeshadow palette was inspired by the Burberry Bucket Bag in camouflage suede, and the three eye colours can be applied as single shades or combined to create a bohemian smokey eye effect.
There were also eyeshadow quads inspired by some of Burberry’s iconic runway looks. I personally love the set in the middle – those rosy shades are gorgeous!
Needless to say, I’m absolutely in love with Burberry products. I’d love to try out more of the base colours, and their concealer! The MUA used a creamy and pigmented concealer with a sponge applicator to spot conceal and I loved the texture – must check that out next time I’m at Sephora.
I was given a few try out for myself…
What are your thoughts? Have you tried any of Burberry’s beauty products? Is there anything you’d be excited to try? You can also purchase Burberry products on Sephora’s online store!
