I have wanted to try the Burberry Beauty range for ages, always look online but wanted to see it for myself before buying. I have been in Harrods several times recently but haven’t actually spotted in there even though they do stock it. So tonight I was over in central London and popped in to John Lewis on the way home as they started stocking the collection back in May.
It’s a nice big space in John Lewis, Oxford Street – its slightly back from the main beauty section over on the left hand side near the lifts. Lots of products to try and the assistant Anna was very welcoming and helpful – makes a change from the snooty assistants here in Guildford!
Anyway, I want it all – its totally my type of collection, very natural. As I am saving for NYC I was quite reserved and opted for these two…
First up the Lip Velvet 303 -Antique Pink
No more lid popping off and lipstick all over my handbag lining!
This is a nice matt pinkish brown. I have tried it and you can build it up so that its quite dark or mix with a bit of lip balm for a softer rosy lip colour. Presented in a heavy matt grey case with the traditional Burberry check, but what I love about the packaging is the magnetic closure – no more lid popping off and lipstick all over my handbag lining!
Next is the Complete Eye Palette – Mocha No02
Now this was a hard choice as all the colour palettes are gorgeous! I went for these colours again because they are nice and natural and they are not to shimmery or matt – just really nice. The shadows just glide on and have a nice velvety texture that blends so well.
Again beautiful packaging with a a velvet cover for the compact and three make-up brushes.
The real test will be when I wear both tomorrow all day…..
I was also given a little gift, a Burberry compact and make-up bag.
Thanks John Lewis 🙂
