The spring collection from Burberry seems to contains more brighter hues than I would normally associate with the brands image. So whilst I thought the blushes pretty I decided to settle on the one eyeshadow in the collection and the limited edition lip gloss.
The Sheer Eye Shadow in No. 26 Gold Pearl (£22.50) is a sheer very yellow toned gold with sparkle.
Unfortunately this isn't quite as smooth/buttery soft as my other Burberry shadows, and its also lower on pigment.
I have to say that I was not pleased when I saw how yellow this was in the pan as my skin is cool toned, but applied I find it doesn't work against my colouring and instead brightens my eye area very well.
The pigment of the Burberry Lip Glow in No. 20 Pink Sweet Pea (£18.50) is extremely saturated. The colour is a crisp, bright, fuchsia pink shot through with a blue iridescence.
The colour applies very smooth and has an average wear, though leaves behind a lasting pink tint. I'm very fussy with the feel of glosses and do find this a bit tacky/sticky but less so that the average lip gloss.
I think these two pair well together, add some black liner and you have a nice fresh, modern look. However of the two I'd say to skip the shadow as I don't think its representative of the normal quality I would expect from Burberry.
I bought these from harrods.com
