The Burberry Summer Showers collection is a range of three shades options for cheeks, lips and nails (Orange Poppy, Pink Peony and Pink Azalea). Its very much about juicy colours with a dewy finish and brings us two new product; Fresh Glow Blush and Lip Glow Balm.
The Fresh Glow Blushers (which consists of over 50% of water) seemed
somewhat translucent when I swatched them so I picked up two of the Lip
Glow Balms instead (£23 each).
Orange Poppy #01 is a brightening coral/orange.
Pink Peony #02 is a healthy looking pink.
They don't have lots of slip like some tinted balms do and both have a
nice glossy sheen finish.
The initial swatch is very sheer, reminding me of the Benefit hydrating
tinted lip balms. Shown below Benefit lollibalm then Burberry Pink Peony swatched once and then the same shades swatched 3 times.
Unlike Benefit, I am pleased to say that they apply a lot more pigmented
on the lips (Orange Poppy is undeniable more
pigmented than Pink Peony). This does make me wonder if the
Fresh Glow Blush would have applied more pigmented on the cheek compared to when I swatched them).
Swatched below once then three times, Orange Poppy then Pink Peony,
The balms feel moisturising, and make the lips feel softer. The formula
contains nourishing oils and waxes which helps to protect from
dehydration and I find my lips still feel in this condition after the
product has worn off.
Its a nice concise collection of cheery looking shades and I have to say
I'm tempted to go back for the more plummy Pink Azalea Lip Glow Balm.
I bought these from Harrods
