Burberry Fall/Winter 2014 Makeup Collection: Review
Introduced at the Burberry Prorsum Fall/Winter 2014 runway show, the new Burberry makeup collection features a range of products that highlight and celebrate, chic, natural beauty. Today I have the Light Glow Natural Blush in "Earthy Blush No. 07" ($49 CAD) and the Lip Cover Lipstick in "Tulip Pink No. 27" ($36 CAD). To see some swatches and review, click.......

Packaging:
Both products come in very elegant reflective gunmetal grey packaging with magnetic closure (even the lipstick). The iconic tartan pattern is etched both on the packaging and on the products themselves. The blush compact also comes with a surprisingly nice and soft travel blush brush.
The overall design is very simple yet super luxurious and classy, much like Burberry clothing and accessories.

Burberry Light Glow Natural Blush in "Earthy Blush in No. 07"
Formulation & Pigmentation:
Light Glow Natural Blush in "Earthy Blush No. 07":
This is definitely one of the most interesting blush I've seen. The color is a very light taupe-y beige, which is a bit too muddy to be considered a nude blush yet it certainly isn't dark enough to be used as a bronzer (unless you are very pale). I can see this easily being used in editorial makeups that feature a very neutral monochromatic look but for a everyday look, it would be quite hard to make this one work. In terms of formulation though, the blush is incredibly soft and silky and the pigmentation is great as well.

Lip Cover Lipstick in "Tulip Pink No. 27":
This is a gorgeous nude rose. I'm generally not a fan of neutral lipstick shades but this one actually looks quite gorgeous because it has a warm pink undertone. The formulation is quite pigmented and lightweight and the lipstick has a natural satin-y finish. The wear isn't great, I get about three to four hours without eating/drinking.

Overall:
These are two make a very beautiful and elegant addition to any collection. The lipstick is a wonderful pink nude with a lightweight formula and the blush is silky, pigmented, and soft although I wish the it was in a more wearable shade.

Availability:
The Burberry Beauty line is available at Nordstrom Chinook Centre, online at Burberry, and Burberry Boutiques at Vancouver and Toronto.
