Burberry Festive 2016 Collection

Makeup

Today let’s take a look at some of the pieces in the Burberry Beauty Festive 2016 Collection. This festive collection features new limited edition products along with some specially packaged, limited edition versions of Burberry favourites. Like holiday collections in the past, this years assortment features special gold toned packaging, instead of the usual Burberry gunmetal hue.

The boxes are even glammed up for the holidays in metallic gold instead of the normal Burberry trench beige.

Burberry has released a special gold packaging edition of their Burberry Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base in Nude Radiance ($54 CAD). While there are many luminous foundation bases on the market today, the Burberry Fresh Glow was one of the first available when it was released many years ago. This is actually my third bottle (or maybe fourth) of this beautiful hydrating fluid primer and my second gold holiday version. I love the special holiday editions because it is a gorgeous product to have on display on your vanity. While this primer may not be the best option for those with very oily skin, those with normal to dry skin will love the light, hydrating formula and the subtle lit from within glow it gives the skin.

The Burberry Kisses Gloss in Parade Red ($31 CAD) is a new and limited edition shade of the Burberry Kisses Gloss formula. These glosses are very lightweight and non sticky and offer hydrating and comfortable wear. 

The shade Parade Red looks intimidating in the tube but given the sheerer, gloss formula it applies to the lips as a wearable mid-deep tone berry shade. This would make a great lipstick topper to add a little shine to your red or berry holiday lip, or it makes a great everyday lip shade when worn solo. It does have some very sparse, fine glitter but it can barely be seen in the tube and isn’t at all noticeable on the lips.

Burberry Nail Polish in Gold Shimmer ($23 CAD) is another limited edition shade in golden packaging. This is actually a really stunning nail colour as it is more than just a gold glitter topper. It has a rather dense concentration of very, very fine golden shimmer combined with gold glitter. You could easily build this up with 2-3 coats and where it on it’s own. It would also make a very impactful glitter top coat with little effort as the glitter applies very uniformly.

The collection also includes an absolutely gorgeous Gold Glow Fragranced Luminizing Powder, Gold Shimmer Eye Palette, and more.
