Burberry Beauty is a brand I’ve absolutely fallen in love with this year. Apart from a couple of cute lip glosses and lipsticks which I’d bought a year or two ago, I hadn’t really delved into the brand too deeply, but I have to say, I have fallen absolutely head-over-heels in love with their Christmas 2016 collection, and I’m sure you will too!
Possibly my favourite piece from the limited edition line up is the Gold Touch Eye, Lip and Cheek Illuminator. Packaged in a dinky glass jar, complete with gold, Burberry-checked lid, this is one of those products which is begging to be left out to display!
And, as pretty as the packaging is, the real star is the illuminator itself. I feel like illuminators and highlighters are one of those products I didn’t really bother with until about 18 months ago, but now I can’t get enough of them! Burberry’s offering, though, is something completely new. It has an absolutely glorious, lightweight cream consistency which disappears into skin, leaving behind nothing but a perfectly, subtly golden glow.
The consistency means that it’s also super easy to build up, if you want a more dramatic look. I have been loving a super light layer of it over the very tops of my cheekbones, and in the inner corners of my eyes. It catches the light perfectly, and looks so pretty. It’s also absolutely stunning, painted on the very tip of my cupid’s bow (although I do tend to save that trick for evenings out). The golden shimmer is exactly what my skin needs, and is a perfect way to get your makeup feeling Christmas party ready!
