Guys, I got buried in Burberry! Yes I’ve been sitting on that line for a whole night, lol! Moving on… I had quite a fun day filled with make-up and a lot of Burberry. Now I’m still fairly new to Burberry, especially the cosmetic range because it’s tricky to get hold of. They only sell it in one store in the whole country here so it’s a bit of an expedition to get there. I also got to see the lovely Burberry spring collection, but more on that on a later date because it’s not available yet (Belgium why you so slow!). Today I’m letting you take a peek of what’s coming up on the blog because I just got so excited that I just wanted to share a bit already!
Burberry is known for their fragrances and it seems like I’ll be sampling some of them now together with body lotions and shower gels. What I like about the brand is that they are really classy, sophisticated and somehow simple. You can clearly see that when you smell the scents, they are nice, not too heavy and very wearable and pleasant. It’s actually weird that I never got into their fragrances before because they are light enough for me to wear (I’m literally allergic to heavy scents so I can’t wear just anything).
The cosmetic range is a dream. I’ve read so many great reviews by now and I see why. Their eye shadows are so buttery soft and fine and the lipsticks are nice and creamy. I will be testing out the foundation too and will let you know about that too! So when it comes to their make-up you obviously got to love their design because it’s everywhere! I actually like it, it’s very nicely done and I’m sure I don’t want to ruin it but we’ll see about that, lol.

When it comes to the make-up, Burberry does deliver in quality. The price point is definitely on the higher end. I really appreciate the packaging, it’s clean, well thought and I just love the little details about it. The eye shadows come in little velvet pouches with the design and the lipstick has a magnetic click. It’s all really well made and you see it. If you are looking for very wearable colours with good quality I really do recommend to take a look and swatch and try out their formulas. It’s not for everyone, it might be not dramatic enough or it’s not that edgy as some other brands but it’s more like a solid line with amazing formulas. And we all appreciate that, no?

I was finishing my little photo shoot with all the Burberry products when I suddenly found a little box in the bag where I put all the products in. It turns out to be a super adorable mini lipstick! I squealed a bit, because come on, mini lipsticks are the bomb! So I put it next to it’s bigger sister for a family photo and there you go! Happy Wednesday everyone!
