It’s far to say that I am obsessed with Burberry.
I own a Burberry wallet, scarf and watch. I wear Burberry perfume at least three times a week and I love the Rosewood Eyeshadow (in my opinion, there is no better taupe colour on the market!). So no surprise to anyone that I found my way quickly to David Jones this month so purchase some Burberry Beauty products so that I would qualify for the very generous Burberry gift with purchase.
I have done a recent audit of my makeup collection and to be perfectly honest, I don’t need any more lipsticks, glosses, eyeshadows or mascaras. So what was I going to do in order to spend the mandatory $79 to receive the gift? Another foundation of course! I justified this to myself by saying that foundation is something you wear everyday and so this is the product (probably along with mascara) that has the highest turn-over in a girl’s beauty bag! (Did I convince you?!) I have been looking at the Sheer Glow Foundation for a few months and so I finally decided to purchase (Shade No.4). But, guess what? It was only (only!) $75…..so I had to buy something else to qualify for the gift!! So I ended up with the Sheer Glow Concealer (Shade No.2) – of the YSL Touch Eclat family. The Burberry Makeup Artist did assure me however that the difference between the YSL and the Burberry Concealer was just that – the Burberry conceals and highlights – while the YSL only illuminates/highlights.
So then the beautiful gift with purchase…..starts with a very luxe black beauty bag with the Burberry logo on the front.
A full size Sheer Eye Shadow in No.14 Lavender. Now - I’ll be honest. When I read “Lavender” I was a little disappointed. Until I opened the luxe packaging to find a gorgeous shade. Smooth and pigmented, it will be taking pride of place in my beauty bag alongside Rosewood.
A full size Burberry Eye Brush – No.11. I am really excited about this – as this will be the first of my Burberry tools for my collection. In a beautiful velvet pouch, this eye brush is different to everything else that I own – with a thick tapered head of bristles. I can’t wait to use it!
A second Burberry Brush – the Beauty Brush. A lovely little face brush – just the right size for my hand bag make up bag to use with my translucent face powder.
A hot pink Lip Mist – Camelia Pink No.207. Probably 5 shades brighter than what I would normally wear, but I am looking forward to breaking this shade out over the Christmas Party season in the coming weeks and glossing it over with one of my YSL Lip stains!
A 4.5ml Burberry Body perfume. Just the right size for my handbag – love love this scent!
Finally, the most gorgeous mini Beauty Glow – Multi-use Highligher. On the box it says Lips/Cheeks/Eyes. It’s a gorgeous rosy/coral shade – and I can’t wait to try it!
I have to say, I was rather pleased with my Burberry purchases from David Jones. It’s a nice little gift of luxury to myself – which after a tough year at work, I more than think I deserve!!
