Burberry Signature Look • Military Red

Burberry Beauty, Signature Look Nude Glow
I am very excited to finally welcome Burberry Beauty into my make-up collection! I have seen and read so much about Burberry make-up of late which made me question, why have I never tried it? To be fair it is not easily sourced where I am and with any new brand, you really want to see it in the flesh so you can have a play. There is a Burberry Beauty counter at London Heathrow T5 and between me and my husband, we travel a lot hence picking up this 'look box' which I thought would be a great way to become familiar with the brand.


Burberry really has had a change in image as I remember when their fashion was 'unfashionable' (chav in a word) but Burberry really is now a luxury, very prestigious, high end brand and this comes across in the make-up with it's stunning, classy, elegant packaging. You can't deny how amazing it is to look at; it really is beautiful. Burberry are definitely known for their signature looks on the catwalk and these beauty box sets are all inspired by the runway. 

There are three designs in the Signature Look Nude Glow box set series, The English Rose, Brit Nude Beige and Military Red - all containing the same products but in different shades. Nude Glow is the classic red look - a red lip and red nail never fails to make you feel and look amazing! The set includes 4 full sized products which actually saves you money by buying them this way as opposed to buying all items individually. It features the Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base (Burberry's No1 top selling make-up product), Eye Colour CreamBurberry Kisses Lipstick and matching Nail Polish (Priced at £75/$100 from Duty Free, £99/$130 online).

This product is the star of the show for me and I can see why it's the top selling one as this is truly stunning. Being water infused the light fluid glides over your skin and feels so cooling and hydrating the moment it hits. It's not shimmery or sparkly, it just has this unbelievable glow that no camera can quite capture and is totally stunning on the skin. Even when you apply the rest of your make-up, this luminous 'natural' glow still comes through and makes your skin look incredible. I don't find many primers that match up to my beloved Laura Mercer one but this is on the same level and top of my star list. Once you try this you are indeed hooked. I love, love, love this product and is a Burberry product you should most definitely try out for yourself.

First of all, I love that this comes with a tiny portable eyeshadow brush that is located underneath in the box; its all about those details! This eyeshadow is very unique because it looks just like a powder in the pot  so you expect it to be a powder but it's really creamy?! A great point is you get no fall out either being so creamy even though you think its a powder. It works as a cream to powder finish and again I absolutely have fallen in love with this and cannot fault it one bit. It works so well as a wash of colour all over the eyelid but also blends like a dream with other eyeshadows to add more intensity and dimension. It feels like velvet and glides over the eyelids super easily to give a gorgeous satin finish. It honestly does not crease or move the whole time you have this on so the staying powder is incredible. When I went to remove it, it still looked as pristine as it did several hours ago - seriously impressive. This mink shade is exactly the shade I would have chosen myself individually as its the perfect all rounder and love the fact that it really does mimic the Burberry trench coat shades. I also think this is one of the most beautifully packaged single eyeshadows that I have sever seen.

• Nail Polish, Military Red No.300 link!
A Runway Inspired shade with a high gloss finish that is the exact same red as the lipstick. This is just divine and the very definition of a true red. The polish itself has a nice wide brush which makes applying this super easy, it's glides on, is very opaque so you could even get away with applying just one coat and it is indeed super glossy as it states. It also dries very fast too which is always a high selling point for me as I hate waiting for my nails to dry! I love bright nail shades so this is very me and perfect for any occasion. I will definitely look into buying a few more shades as they are gorgeous polishes - it helps that they look super fancy on the dresser too of course.

It took me a while just to actually stop staring at the stunning Burberry embossment on this lipstick and actually use it but I guess make-up is for wearing not staring! Im so bad for that.  This is a satin finish with super shiny polymers that give brilliant shine as you can see above! The lipstick formulation is very clever as it has been designed to give you a multiple choice of looks from just the one shade. You can apply just one layer to give a glossy tint, or add more layers to intensify the whole look and shade; I applied three layers to get the full effect and wow, what a red! 

I wasn't expecting it to be so hydrating and shiny by seeing it in the bullet but my god it really is! It does stain your lips slightly but has serious staying power even when the glossiness has mattifed. It's the best of both worlds with the hold of a matte and the finish of a hydrating lipstick all in one. Being the massive lipstick lover that I am, I knew I would love this very true red lipstick but I ultimately love it's unique formulation. It glides on like butter so if you struggle with red then this is the one to go for as it's so easy to apply and looks stunning and is such a perfect red tone for so many skin tones. I am so happy to have this in my collection - totally love it.

I think it's safe to say that I am now a BIG Burberry Beauty fan hence me having to tell you about the products as I am seriously very impressed and obsessed. I think Burberry have truly encapsulated their brand into a very special and unique beauty brand that has been well thought out and designed. The packaging is super luxurious and makes you feel very special having this in you make-up collection. 

I already have a list of more products that I want to get from the line so stay tuned as this wont be the last you hear on Burberry Beauty here on my blog! If you can get your hands on one of these sets then my advice is do!
