Burberry Beauty A/W15 Runway Collection and Recent Relases

Burberry Beauty is one of my favourites because of the brand’s aesthetic: that effortlessly chic British woman in a Burberry trench is something I strive for. Except, where am I gonna get the money for a cool and very expensive trench coat? But I digress…

There are several new releases from Burberry in the recent months and I’m going to quickly run through what’s good, what’s okay, and what didn’t perform that well. Oh, and you get to see my face again! I’ve marked my picks with a ⭐️! 😉

Burberry Cream Shadow Mink 102, Kohl Eyeliner Storm Green 06, Kohl Multi-Use Crayon Jet Black 01

Eye Colour Cream Shadow in Mink No. 102 ($34) ⭐️. Ugh! Can I get permission start all rave reviews with ugh! now? This gives me the glossy eye of my dreams! It’s described as a cream eyeshadow, but to me it is actually a powder eyeshadow that is super creamy and blendable. I just use my finger to apply a wash of colour on my eyelids. This shade is a beautiful taupe beige on my skin tone. It does not crease on me, which makes it a great base for a more elaborate eye makeup as well.

Effortless Kohl Eyeliner in Storm Green No. 06 ($32)⭐️. This one glides nicely and is waterproof, and it also smudges well if you want to soften the line. Storm Green is the perfect khaki green, and it makes a lovely daytime alternative for black.

Effortless Kohl Multi-Use Crayon in Jet Black No. 01 ($33). This is very black and very smudge-able. Unfortunately this is too smudge-able for me; it just keeps slipping and smudging! This one stays creamy and does not really set, so it needs to be locked down with an eyeshadow on top if you want to keep it on for more than 5 minutes.

Fresh Glow Highlighting Luminous Pen ($39) and Face Contour Effortless Contouring Pen in Medium No. 01 ($39). Subtle is the name of the game with these highlighting and contouring sticks. They are not going to bring intense lights and shadows to the face, but they will be great for those who are new to contouring. The Contouring Pen also comes in Dark No. 02, which will probably suit my complexion better. I personally am not jumping for joy over these. I think they’re alright; we’ve seen these before.

I forgot to wear blush. Get it together, Geekz! If I did wear blush with this, I’d wear Burberry Earthy Blush, which is also a re-promote for the A/W15 collection.

Burberry Lip Velvet Nude Apricot 401, Military Red 429, Oxblood 337

And now we’ve come to the best part: Lip Velvet in Burberry Lip Velvet in Nude Apricot No. 401 ⭐️, Military Red No. 429 ⭐️, Oxblood No. 337 ($38). Nude Apricot and Military Red provides opaque coverage in one pass. Oxblood takes a few passes to get full coverage, but it gets there without obvious patchiness. These are luminous mattes and they feel like they hug your lips in cashmere. Very flattering and so easy to wear, you gotta get your hands on at least one! Military Red is my favourite. It’s been a while since I’ve been excited over a shade of red!
