My first Burberry Light Glow Blush from their Spring/Summer’13 Collection! This is yet another product that i told myself i need at least ONE!! 🙂 Whoops, can you tell i’ve been over-indulging lately?!?! Lucky thing i got it when they were having the 12% rebate at Tangs some weeks ago.

Product Description: (Taken from the Burberry website)

  • A lightweight blush that gives the skin a bright fresh glow
  • Burberry Light Glow contains silicones for effortless and even application and wild rose extract for moisturising benefits

  • Apply to the hollow of the cheeks to slim the face or apply to the cheek bone to highlight

I’m happy just looking at it… so pretty… and i love the embossed trench pattern. It took me a while to actually start using it, cos i just didn’t want to ruin the pattern. LOL!

My thoughts:

What i really like about the packaging is the magnetic closure, it is definitely one factor that sets it apart from blushers of other brands. The texture of this blush is super soft and finely-milled. It applies smoothly like a dream! Do not be fooled by the name ‘Light Glow’! With a matte finish, this dark pink blush is more than decently pigmented. It also has pretty good lasting power, lasting up to 8 hours or so. It gives you a nice healthy flush on the cheeks, and the quality is IMHO, outstanding. It is well worth its S$61. I didn’t really see the point of getting this and Hydrangea Pink which is the other blush from this Spring Collection. They appear to be kind of similar, just that this is a warmer shade and the Hydrangea Pink is more cool-toned.
