Awhile back Burberry released their Summer Collection. I was intrigued but, at the time I had many other items I wanted to purchase so I passed. But of course me being me I couldn’t help but think about the collection so I bought a few pieces. There were three items in all. The Lip Glow Balm ($28/ea.), the Fresh Glow Blush ($38/ea.), and the Nail Polish ($21/ea.). I opted to skip out on the blush since I am not really a cream blush wearer.
So first we have the Lip Glow Balms. I ordered two out of the three shades, Pink Peony and Orange Poppy. These are quite on the sheer side, which I like. Pink Peony is a mellow pink. It isn’t too bright but, still has a nice shade to it. Orange Poppy is a bright orange. I don’t have much like it in my collection. I think it will be great for the summer time. These have a few hours of wear time. I have heard that if you apply them with a lip brush you can get more pigmentation. I like a good sheer lipstick so I am happy applying these right out if the tube. They remind me very much of the YSL Volupte Sheer Candy’s.
And then we have the Nail Polishes. Again I opted for two out of the three shades, Pink Peony and Orange Poppy. As we all know I love a good coralish and pinkish color. These polishes are very pigmented. You could probably go for one coat but, I applied two just because that is what I like. Orange Poppy is a muted orange that is a bit pearlized. You can’t really tell when on the nails but when the sun hits the bottle you can tell. Pink Peony is a darker pink shade. It reminds me more of a raspberry shade. These polishes last at least three days with no chipping. On the fourth day I did get some chipping enough to change my polish.
Overall I really like these shades. And I totally want to try more of the polish shades!
Have you tried any of these items ?? What did you think ??
