Today I am excited to be sharing with you some products from the Burberry Spring/Summer 2016 Runway Velvet & Lace Collection. Unveiled at the Burberry Functionregalia Womenswear Collection runway show, this look is all about satin skin with natural and effortless contouring and highlighting, open nude eyes, and statement lips.
The star of the collection is of course the stunning limited edition Burberry Spring/Summer 2016 Runway Palette in White No. 01($72 CAD). This gorgeously presented illuminating powder features an intricate lace pattern inspired by the fabrics in the womenswear show.
This pressed powder is finely milled will a soft, silky, and beautifully pigmented formula. While well pigmented this powder still has a translucent quality allowing you to create a subtle, luminous glow or build it up to a more intense, strobing highlight.
Compared to the BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Pearl, the Burberry powder has a slightly more shimmering effect (without being glittery or sparkly) and a translucency, while Pearl is more opaquely pigmented with a strong metallic sheen. They are quite similar in overall effect and colour.
The limited edition Burberry Eye Colour Cream in Nude Gold No. 121 ($34 CAD) is the perfect way to achieve the natural, open eye look featured in the show. This spongey, airy mousse cream shadow gives lids a sheer wash of glowing beige gold.
The shadow has a beautiful texture that is a delight to blend onto the lids. The shade is luminous and dimensional without being overly shimmery.
There are two limited edition nail colours featured in the collection.
Burberry Nail Polish in Optic White No. 440 ($23 CAD) was featured in the runway show. This is a true white cream polish. It is rather sheer but build up to mostly full opacity in two coats. I think 3 coats would be needed for perfect opacity.
Burberry Nail Polish in Black Cherry No. 304 ($23 CAD) is a gorgeous, and aptly named, polish. I see this more as a fall/winter shade but it is beautiful nonetheless.
The Burberry Spring/Summer 2016 Collection is available now. You can find Burberry in Canada at selected Nordstrom and Hudson’s Bay, Sephora Mississauga, as well as online at thebay.com, sephora.ca, and burberry.com.
