|Burberry Beauty "Winter Glow" Collection|
There were a few beautiful pieces in Burberry Beauty's festive Winter Glow collection that really caught my eye, including the very pretty and odd taupe highlighting powder which I do not have here sadly.
I do have 4 other pieces that I love though. The entire collection features a lovely balance between antique golds, Burberry's soft signature taupe, and also sexy oxblood red.
|Complete Eye Palette Gold No.25|
|Burberry Beauty Complete Eye Palette Gold No. 25 swatches|
I admit I hadn't been all that interested in the palette initially. (Looked like any other taupe-y bronze palette.) until I saw it demonstrated on a model. I'm telling you, if you have blue eyes... this would looks completely amazing. I don't, but I love it anyway!
|Lip Mist Oxblood No.214|
|Lip Glow Gold No.25|
|Swatches: Lip Mist Oxblood No.214, Lip Glow Gold No.25|
Lip Mist in Oxblood No.214 on the other hand, looks brown in the tube, but goes on more berry-hued. It's semi-sheer but the color builds up beautifully to a jelly-like sheen. Almost like you applied gloss on top. One annoying problem I find with some of the Lip Mists though, is the softer consistency makes some of the lipsticks bend and smoosh against the insides of the tube when used. My particular tube of Oxblood did just that, which is an issue if you love the checks embossed on it.

|Nail Polish Oxblood No.303|
|Makeup look using Burberry Winter Glow collection|
The lip shade really isn't as deep as it looks in the tube. On the lips, it looks like an opaque berry lipgloss. The sheen is absolutely gorgeous. I'd give it a 9/10 if not for the fact that the lipstick smooshed against the insides of the tube.
Have you checked out anything in the collection yet, and if so, which are your fave products?
