A quick review on a new blush that I picked up recently – this is slightly late as it’s a limited edition item, but since I’ve already taken the photos and tested it for a while, I thought that I’d just put it up. At the time of putting up this post, I can still find online and they also had a few left when I picked this up in Singapore about 2 weeks ago.
Burberry London with Love Blush Highlighter is a light medium pink with a luminous finish. It’s made up of a medium pink with a satin finish, and a light white highlighter with shimmery sheen finish. There’s 8g of product; I can’t recall the exact price since I bought it with loyalty points, but it should be around the S$75-S$85 range.
The Burberry website claims that you can “give cheeks a natural radiance with the heart-shaped blush and use the highlighter to subtly illuminate the face. The two shades can be applied separately or blended together for a customisable finish.” Personally, I find it hard to use the highlighter separately given the shape; it’s still possible with a tiny brush.
I use this blush either on its own, or blended together with the highlight shade for a lighter and more luminous blush. The colour payoff is great – not too strong with one stroke but the intensity is buildable; it has a very soft but not powdery texture that is very easy to blend. This lasted the whole day for me, more than the 8hour mark.
I’ve been a fan of Burberry blushes for a while and this doesn’t disappoint me. I would totally recommend this if you can still get your hands on it!
