I am delighted to share with you some items from the gorgeous Burberry Summer 2016 London With Love Collection. I am always excited for Burberry’s seasonal collections as they manage to embrace colour and trends while maintaining their sophisticated image with quality, wearable products.
The star piece in the collection is the Burberry London With Love Palette ($72 CAD). This limited edition beauty is a blush and highlight palette featuring a Burberry embossed heart blush shade in the centre surrounded by a highlighter. The blush is a gorgeous rose shade and the highlighter a beautiful pink leaning ivory with a refined glow.
The powders are very smooth with a silky feel and rich colour payoff. The compact gives off a beautiful scent that I don’t notice on the skin once applied. Looking at the highlighter in the pan I didn’t expect it to offer much of a glow on the skin but it gives a beautiful, radiant sheen to the skin that is natural but noticeable.
The design of the palette actually makes it quite easy pick up each shade individually. You can also swirl them together to soften the colour of the blush and give it more of a glow.
The collection also highlights the Burberry Lip Velvet Lipstick ($38 CAD) in stunning brights for summer. These aren’t your typical dry matte lipsticks. They have a light, silky, velvety texture and impart lips with the rich, vibrant colour payoff you expect from a matte lipstick, but with a beautiful a soft-matte sheen. These lipsticks don’t feel at all drying. Given they aren’t they usual thick, dry matte formula the wear time is a bit less than a typical matte, yet longer than the average cream lipstick.
Shown are the limited edition shade Fuchsia Pink, followed by Rosy Red and Coral Orange. So gorgeous! Normally I would do lip swatches for you as well but I’m having some sort of allergic reaction thing happening with my lips right now that is making lip swatches a little impossible.
Coordinating perfectly with the vibrant hues for the lips are these beautiful limited edition cream Burberry Nail Polish ($23 CAD) shades in Coral Pink and Coral Red. These shades are quite similar with the Red being just a touch deeper than the Pink. These colours are absolute pedicure perfection. And of course look just as lovely on the nails.
