It’s one of the most exciting times in blogging for me to receive beauty products from my favorite luxury brand, Burberry. Their products are always on point, classy and good quality. It’s super exciting for me because I have received not only one product but three in the Burberry Essential Box.
How I got this box was very fortunate. I didn’t go above and beyond by contacting Burberry myself nor did they contacted me directly. How I got in touch with them is that I am part of an Influenster, a community of over 3 million social savvy shoppers that stay on top of the latest product news & expert tips, so I get a chance to win VOXBOX (a box full of full-sized free products that you get to review and keep) each month.
Good news is you can be a part of this community and will have a chance to receive free products, test and share your opinions with the community as well. If you are interested you can sign up here.
The products I received are Fresh Glow Highlighter (Rose Gold No. 04), BURBERRY Fresh Glow Highlighting Luminous Pen (Nude Radiance No. 01) and BURBERRY Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base (Golden Radiance No. 02). Now let me go over each product.

-Apply the illuminating powder around the edge of the face, onto the temples, cheekbones, down the center of the nose, and along the Cupid’s bow to lift and brighten the complexion.
-It can also be applied to the eyes, décolletage, and arms for a flattering glow.
My first impression of this product is WOW! The classy Burberry packaging is so simple but yet sophisticated. When you open the case you can see a beautiful lace designed highlighter. This product is so pigmented. The color is so beautiful and looks very natural on my skin. My skin looks so glowy and dewy, especially in the light. I personally love using this highlighter for nights out.
Color: Nude Radiance No. 01
Diisostearyl Malate, Octyldodecanol, Polyglyceryl-3 Diisostearate, Polyethylene, Mica, Cera Microcristallina (Microcrystalline Wax), Zea Mays (Corn) Oil, Propylene Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Tin Oxide, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-Di-T-Butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Lavandula Stoechas Extract, Rosa Canina Fruit Extract, Bht, [+/- (May Contain): Ci 77491 (Iron Oxides), Ci 77891 (Titanium Dioxide)].
-Pair with Face Contour for an even more defined and sculpted look, or apply on top of Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base to further highlight and illuminate areas of the face.
-To use, apply on the center of the forehead, along the bridge of the nose, on the Cupid’s bow, the apple of the cheeks, the chin, and along the collarbone.
-Blend lightly with fingertips.
This pen highlighter is for on the go, instant glow must-have item. I like that it comes in a pen form because it is so convenient to carry around with you. As well as the ease of use, it’s so much easier to use than a regular form of highlighter, especially when highlighting the corners of your eyes. I have to say that I’m not a big fan of using this product for the inner corners of my eyes thinking. I tend to tear up easily which always ruin the highlighter. But I definitely LOVE using this product on my Cupid’s bow a lot. The color is beautiful. I also love the creamy texture that makes it so easy to apply and blend only using my fingertips.
Color: Golden Radiance No. 02
Water, Glycerin, Isohexadecane, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Ethylhexyl Stearate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Sodium Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Cassia Angustifolia Seed Polysaccharide, Polysorbate 80, Panthenol, Carbomer, Sorbitan Oleate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Rosa Canina Fruit Extract, Tocopherol. +/- (May Contain): CI 77019 (Mica), CI 77891 (Titanium Dioxide), CI 77491 (Iron Oxides).
-To achieve an illuminated effect, apply to nude skin or under foundation.
-To create a sheer, glowing wash of color, blend into eye shadow.
-To highlight, smooth onto cheekbones, the bridge of the nose, and the Cupid’s bow.
I was afraid to use this base when I first saw the color through the bottle. The color looks a little bit too dark at first glance. But once I tested on my skin I’m in love! The product is very lightweight, comfortable on my skin and very easy to apply. It makes my skin look and feels so glamorous. Literally feels like putting liquid gold on my face. The color is just perfect. I can wear it without any other makeup and I still feel as confident as wearing full makeup. I also love that it doesn’t feel sticky at all and my skin can breathe. It’s a Summer must-have beauty product for sure!
This is my finished look using all three products. My apologies for the bad lighting. I took the picture at night so it is kind of hard to see how the glow looks like from this picture. I will have to say that the color and the glow are so gorgeous in person. You might want to stop by Sephora or Burberry Counter near you and try all these products out before you decide to purchase.
Don’t forget to check out Influenster and sign up so you will have a chance to receive some full-size beauty products to try like me. Thank you for stopping by my blog today.
Enjoy your day, my love.
See you again soon! 🙂
