Now for the last holiday makeup collection–and not the least. Burberry went with the gold theme, and really rocked it.The gold boxes alone are pretty, but when you open them up, you really see how stunning they are: super glossy metallic with an overlay of their signature plaid. Top marks, Burberry.
I received three products from the Winter Glow collection: the Gold Glow Luminizing Powder, the eyeshadow palette, and the Lip Glow in Gold. There are also some darker reds, a base and nail polishes in the range, which look just as gorgeous.
The powder on first impression looked a bit grey to me, and I wondered how it could look gold on the skin. However, the colour doesn’t show, but a subtle veil of super finely milled shimmer graces the skin. I needed to really load up my brush before I really saw obvious sparkles on my skin.
The eyeshadow palette is a great one–gorgeous neutrals that carry a soft shimmer–not as metallic as Dior’s shadows, but subtle and understated. The four shades also make is super easy to create a quick smoky eye. Perfect for the holiday season and all year round.
If you want a 14 carat gold lip this Christmas, the Lip Glow is what you need. A clear gloss shot through with glimmers of gold, this works both over your natural lip for a pretty metallic lip, or apply it overtop any lipstick to create a knockout look.
Readers, I applied this makeup in the hopes of taking a nice photograph for you to demonstrate how pretty this makeup is, however, I’ve had trouble sleeping the past few weeks, and my dark purple under eye circles really showed through in the photos. This one not only shows you the eyeshadow and lip gloss, but also how much I wish I was sleeping.
