Summer make up has hit the stores! There were many bronzers that I have been eyeing for these few weeks, however I am glad that I am able to pass few gorgeous bronzers such as Dior Nude Tan, Chanel Sable Beige and Guerlain Emillio Pucci. I am not a heavy user of bronzer thus there’s no need for me to buy a lot of them. However, I can’t avoid buying Burberry’s Summer Glow. Such a pretty and classy packaging and yes it’s a limited edition! Moreover, the color suits my skintone very well. It’s not too dark and can be worn as a highlighter as well. Buying this is like shooting two birds at a time, you’re getting an item that can be used for two functions. This item is retailing at S$90.
As usual, there’s a unique scent in every Burberry’s make up products. I don’t know how to describe the scents but I like it. As you can see, there are 4 colors here. When I want to sculpt my face, I’ll use the two darker color on the left. The color combination provides a dark color that doesn’t look too obvious on my skin. On the other hand, when I want to highlight my face in a more natural way, I’ll swipe my brush on the two lighter colors. On the picture below, I have swatched each color for your reference
As you can see, the two colors on the right are very sheer. I won’t recommend to swipe your brush on this palette entirely if you want to use this as a bronzer (unless you are very very fair). In my opinion, swiping your brush as the two darker color will provide the best shade for asian fair skin tone.
My final conclusion of this product:
The packaging of this product is a standard metal packaging from Burberry (like Burberry’s blusher). It looks elegant, mature and beautiful . The texture is very smooth and silky. This is very easy to be applied on the cheeks and I am loving the finish. It’s not totally matte; it contains micro silver shimmer that gives you the perfect glow. If you are looking for a true bronzer, I don’t think this is for you. It’s less dark than most bronzer thus this won’t really show. But if you are looking for a more natural bronzer, you’ll definitely need this. I find it hard to find a bronzer that doesn’t look too harsh on me and finally Burberry has this product that I need 🙂 Overall I am very satisfied with this product and loving it.
