Fall 2014 beauty with Burberry

burberry beauty fall 2014

Recent events have had my pining for my homeland that is Britain. I’m missing the food, the side streets, the rude people and even the rain a little too much to handle. Naturally I’m gravitating towards anything with a British background and my recent opportunity to explore the Burberry beauty collection felt just like home.

I’ll admit I sometimes roll my eyes when I hear of luxury brands trying to tap in to beauty market at this point in time. “It’s going to be all about the packaging, I just know it,” is what I usually think about such a thing — Take Louboutin doing sixty something dollar nail polish. Please.

I digress.

Burberry’s beauty line surprised and delighted me. The quality of complexion, the unique shades and textures. So much luxury in one place without the sacrifice of quality. You’ll want to read more

My favourite part of the collection. I took Bright Poppy on TV with me — you can see more here. This lipstick is the perfect deep, berry shade. Hello cranberry lips with a matte but soft finish. There’s something about this formula that offers an opaque matte finish that doesn’t dry out the lips. WHY are you so perfect, baby?

Firstly, I love the name of this shade. Elderberry can I just eat you and stain my lips with the gorgeous shade that you are? Fine, my tips will have to do. Burberry brought the A-game to the world of lacquers and this formula is nothing but gelish, deep, dark colour that takes two coats to glossy perfection. I didn’t even wear it with a top coat it was that good.

Another surprise for me was how good their complexion line was. Let’s face it they had to nail this one since their ads boast flawless finishes from the likes of Kate Moss and Cara Delevigne (girl crush). Velvet Foundation offers a matte finish but oh. my. goodness. does this formula make your skin glow from within.

The only downfall I had with it is that when I caked on two thick layers ( there was a reason) It caused me to break out. On any given day a light layer of this really gives me perfect skin.

Don’t you love the finishes and shades? I’m obsessed with how beautifully British this look is. Nothing but bold brows, matte skin and that bold, berry lip. Ugh. I could just eat it.

    You look so stunning, Rema! If your face doesn’t sell that foundation, nothing will, not even Kate or Cara. Burberry’s beauty line is one of the best. Their eyeshadows are in-cred-ible. I want everything, lol! So sorry you’re missing your homeland, ladybug! Maybe you can cross the pond for a visit soon? Much love!
