Burberry Birds and Bees Spring/Summer Makeup Collection
This Burberry Birds and Bees Spring/Summer Makeup Collection represent the elegant and sophisticated woman. This collection is all about unique pink shades to achieve feminine and sexy look.
The lady who sold the Burberry products to me was very friendly and took her time to explain what other collections we can expect from the brand and also that they changing the entire ingredients of their makeup products. So by the end of the year all eye shadows can be applied dry or wet and the lipsticks would have sheer finish but very easy to build on to achieve a more intense colour on your lips. With this being said, Burberry become a more ‘ flexible’ brand. Using their eye shadows dry and their lipstick sheer you can create natural look or by wetting their eye shadows, more saturated colour effect can be achieved a long with more intense lip colour.
Rose Pink No:201 wet & dry silk shadow is warm dusty rose with a reddish brown undertone. It has a matte finish and the pigmentation is amazing. It applies so smoothly and is such a effortlessly blendable eye shadow. Rose Pink is my first eye shadow ever purchased from Burberry and because of their silky texture and high quality, i consider purchasing few more of their range.
After i have done my swatches i was amazed how long lasting the wet eye shadow was. I tried to take it off using my hands, but it had like a stain effect on my arm. Than i used a wet wipe and it did easily come off. Really impressed with the lasting power!
I would say this particular shade can be a little bit tricky. Because it has slight red under tone and it might make your eyes look swollen if you don’t combine it with the correct shades. I usually apply it on my lid and blend upwards. Than i apply dark brown or dark grey and smoke it out. It looks gorgeous! These shades blended together create really sexy smokey effect.
The packaging looks like a small jewelry box to me. I adore it! So pretty and sophisticate looking. It has a big mirror and closes with strong magnet to keep your eye shadow safe. It comes with a small cute pouch. Perfection!
Pink Azalea No:223 nail polish is a gorgeous deep berry shade and i believe it has been relaunched from Summer 2014 collection. The quality of the nail polish is not the best i have come across, but i just love, love the colour. Two coats are enough to achieve the perfect finish. Unfortunately, on the next day i can see nail polish already missing on the tips of my nails. It could be my nails, as they are on a dry side and chip quite easily…i don’t know… but to be honest i still feel this nail polish is one of my favourite, just because i love this shade so much. Can’t get enough of it…
P.S. And it drys out pretty quickly, which is always a plus for me.
