Burberry Light Glow (blushers) in Hydrangea Pink no.10 and Tangerine Blush no.06

Hello there!
Today I will be sharing with you, my reviews on couple of the Burberry blushers.

Official Description:
A lightweight blush that gives the skin a bright fresh glow.
Burberry Light Glow contains silicones for effortless and even application and wild rose extract for moisturising benefits.
The complexion glows with natural looking radiance.
Apply to the hollow of the cheeks to slim the face or apply to the cheek bone to highlight.

The Packaging
The compact is metallic and embossed with Burberry check pattern, it comes inside a navy velvety pouch. Inside the compact, you will find a nicely sized mirror plus a slim brush that’s made of natural hair (no idea what animal…). But do not underestimate this brush, it is actually great to use with the blusher!

The compact feels sturdy, but I will not drop it to test its durability!! :p

The Product
These blushers have the usual Burberry cosmetic fragrance, which has been described as “wild antique rose”. This scent is quite noticeable when you first open the compact, it doesn’t bother me much. It could be something that you will need to be aware of before making your purchase online!

Burberry light glow (blushers) are finely milled, and goes on skin very smoothly. Be mindful that these blushers are highly pigmented (especially Hydrangea Pink, this requires an extra light hand to work with!)

Application
For the tangerine blush, I have used the brush that comes inside the case. I took this with me on holiday and used this as light contouring colour / a nice subtle blush.

The brush is great for contouring when turned slightly horizontal, and when used upright it is good for applying soft wash of colour on the cheeks. The soft bristles mean its good for blending too. OBVIOUSLY, it will be better when used with some proper makeup brushes.

I can only use RT face brush (or duo fibre blusher brush) with the Hydrangea Pink. Due to it being highly pigmented. The swatch photo was done with 1 swipe, the colour has staying power and it takes alot of work to undo any mistake :/

The Shades
These shades are not from the new collection and I believe they have been out for at least a year and part of the permanent line. These are matte blushes.

“Tangerine Blush” sounds very scary, tangerine to me.. it’s an orange shade. But this blush colour is not orange, the shade is very wearable and looks natural on my NW25 skin.

“Hydrangea Pink” is an intense mid fuschia pink, gives a very “Spring” feel. When applied lightly it does waken the face up in a radiant kind of way.

Summary
out of the 2, I do prefer Tangerine Blush 🙂 simply because it is easier to wear but Hydrangea Pink is fun! I have another shade but not had much use out of it yet.

Pros:
Long lasting
Highly pigmented
Fancy & luxury packaging 😛

Cons:
Pricey
Pretty weighty, I don’t carry this around with me!
