Burberry Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Foundation, BB Cream and Primer


Bonjour, hello, hi.

I'm currently writing this while neck high in journals, I'm supposed to be in the middle of writing my dissertation, in fact my first hand in is today but instead I've decided to have a quick pit-stop and write up a little review on my blog (as you do)

If you follow my Snapchat 'Goodowl' (if your not then why?!?) then you will no doubt already know Burberry got in touch and hooked me up with some of their products yeah I know, I totally had to pinch myself as well, i've gone from the girl who sat and the back of the class with her natural collection makeup (no hate, I still love me some of their concealers) whilst her friends played with their expensive makeup to the girl who's rocking Burberry foundation, how this transition has happened to me I do not now, but I'm more than welcoming it with open arms. 

The first thing out of my little Burberry bag of goodies was the new Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Foundations, I could have died at the sight of the packaging - seriously they look like mini spaceships and I'm totally down with that.

The Primer

First up is probably my absolute favourite out of the three, *The Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base. I don't think my vocabulary is expansive enough to describe just how much I've fallen for this product, yes maybe it's a glorified highlighter in a pretty looking bottle, but damn does it give a good glow. At £34 per 30ml a pop it's a pricey little shimmer, but it gives you the most gorgeous 'glow from within' granted that's probably the most overused phrase when it comes to describing highlighters but in this case it's justified. 

The light fluid can be used to illuminate your entire complexion as a base underneath your makeup or over your moisturiser. It has a blend of pearls which help to blur out minor imperfections, all without imparting that awful hey-look-at-his-body-glitter-I'm-wearing look. It can also be used mixed in with eye-shadows, a experiment I'm yet to try, and of course as just a highlighter giving you a glow that Kim K herself would be envious of. The highlighter comes in two shades; No. 1 Nude and No.2 Golden Radiance, The one photographed and the one I'm wearing below is No.1.


The BB Cream

I'm not a fan of all these BB/CC/DD/EE creams, dependent on the brand they can almost mean entirely different things - some offer a full coverage and some barely any - in the case of Burberry it's safe to state it's a light coverage, so those lucky devils among us with minor imperfections and are just looking to colour adjust here and there, this is for you. God I envy you. 

*Burberrys Fresh Glow B.B Cream comes with SPF 20 and is a great little moisturiser and the colour is build-able but again it's a very sheer base so not ideal for people with heavy blemishes like myself, it comes in three different shades: Fair, Medium and Dark.

The Foundation

Lastly it's onto the *Burberry Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Foundation SP15 which comes in 14 shades ranging from Porcelain to Deep Brown. When it comes to foundations I consider myself a bit of a hoarder, I own far too many most of whom are probably now unfit for humans as I've had them way too long (fear not I don't wear them, just haven't plucked up the courage to part ways) point being I've bought a lot of foundations over the years, from high-end to low-end I've pretty much tried everything all in the quest to find that perfect blend which covers my acne scars but still shows skin and doesn't cake

Is the quest over? Not quite yet. Don't get me wrong this is a great foundation, it gives you the most gorgeous glow, the photo taken above is with studio lighting (I say studio, it's with my bargain soft boxes), this kind of lighting is more often than not my most harsh critic as combined with my DLSR it can show pretty much everything, so if that foundation has creased or a spot is still visible you can be damn sure you'll still see it. The foundation has fared pretty darn well with my acne, apart from the odd patch which I can cover with concealer it pretty much concealed, so kudos to you Burberry. It's a medium build-able shade and has the most beautiful and natural looking dewy glow.

One thing I do love about this foundation is it's ticked most of my 'perfect foundation' boxes, it's dewy, lightweight, it covers most of my acne and you are still able to see my skin underneath. The problem I find with heavier coverage foundations is that you can tell your wearing foundation, with this it just looks as if you have naturally gorgeous skin, you can still see my freckles through it, which is something that's often lost with my other foundations. So what are the drawbacks to it? Well on my skin it just doesn't last that long as someone who works in a studio and constant touches their face through out the day it just doesn't withstand the constant fiddling, which some of my other foundations can, also without a powder I can find it starts to slip and for someone who has dry skin and is anti-powder that just doesn't bode well.  For a further in-depth look keep an eye out on my Youtube channel as I will be uploading a compete Burberry makeup look demonstrating these up soon :).
