BURBERRY BODY PURSE SPRAY AND LIPSTICK REVIEWS


Hello lovelies, so today I have decided to talk to you about some beautiful products that I got a while ago and haven't really discussed with you! I tend to buy most of my make up from Harvey Nichols and usually rush straight to MAC cosmetics but I never really get the chance to look at other brands. I've always wanted to try Nars, (not sure why  I haven't tried anything from there), Armani and Burberry. And finally, I took the plunge. To be honest, I didn't even know that Burberry did make up, I've only ever seen their lipsticks in the Harrods special Glossybox edition and really wanted one then but unfortunately didn't get one in my box.  I am delighted to say that I am now the proud owner of two Burberry lipsticks and the Burberry Body eau de parfum purse spray (which is unreal by the way). 


The perfume, aaaah possibly the best perfume that I have ever smelt. I don't even think I knew that Burberry did perfume, I think I may prefer this to Flowerbomb (oh yes I did say that!). Selfridges say that it is 'a seductive and feminine fragrance inspired by the timeless elegance of the iconic trench coat' which I suppose is pretty cool. The case that it comes in seems so much more durable than a bottle, not only is this purse spray perfectly portable, but it is also made out of rose gold, crazily glamorous!  You even get two refills with it and they last for ages (well, not if you spray it to the extent that I do) I hope that this lasts me until Christmas because it's my must have item. I wish that I could let you all smell it, I urge you to smell it somehow because it's just gorgeous. This costs £50.00 which I suppose isn't too bad, when I compare the price of Flowerbomb, which is what I usually wear. Not to mention, this is eau de parfum and therefore, 'real' perfume, it isn't the evaporated eau de toilette version. This is just perfect to be thrown in my bag on a day to day basis but I love to pop it in my clutch on a night out too.

 Okay, so anyone who knows me will know that I am addicted, well and truly, to Mac's Myth lipstick. We just have this love affair which is probably never going to end. It's just perfectly nude and doesn't look like lipstick. I also wear a Nikki Minaj lipstick by Mac, which is bright pink, I do tend to feel like a clown when I wear it though. I am probably more impressed with the pattern on this Burberry lipstick and the packaging than the shade of the lipstick. That is a personal opinion though, it's just me being picky about the colour. The lipstick or 'lip velvet' as Burberry nicely call it, is long lasting and looks beautiful on, unfortunately the colours just aren't really me. Actually, I tell a lie, the pink apricot colour (left) is really nice, it's kind of a pale pink, although the photo doesn't show it very well. It's just a bit brighter than my usual Myth so I can deal with wearing this, I just wish the redwood was a bit more vibrant, I really want a ridiculously vibrant red lipstick or a deep purple lipstick. I'm sure that they do a large array of colours though and i'm going to have to have a look through them all and try some colours, i'd love to see if they do a nude colour similar to Mac's myth. What I will be trying to get my hands on next is this lipstick in 'bright poppy' it's an incredible deep purple colour. I wouldn't mind trying their velvet foundation too. Wow, both will be going on my Christmas list.
As you can see, the pattern on the lipstick is ridiculously glamorous. It literally is incredible, it's Burberry's new print, and it makes me not want to touch the beautiful lipstick. It is too pretty. The case itself is absolutely gorgeous, it's possibly the poshest lipstick that I have ever come across. The lid is magnetic and sticks to the case which is handy as I always lose my lipstick lids. I also like that it is square in shape, instead of the usual lipsticks which are shaped like bullets. You can see the colours a bit better below.
 The top left is the red wood, below this (very difficult to see) is the pink apricot with flash. You can see that it's really nice and shiny. To the right you can see both colours with and without flash. obviously it's difficult to see what the colours look like unless you actually saw me in person with them on. Follow me on instagram and I will try and upload a photo of me wearing them tomorrow when i've actually got some make up on:  emshelx is my instagram. Next stop: bright poppy.

All in all, I am extremely impressed with Burberry as a make up brand. After looking on their website, I would love to try their powders and their velvet foundation, I think i'll be popping into Selfridges next time I'm in London to pick a few Burberry items up - I would love my make up bag to be full of this elegant and glamorous brand. I think it's the packaging that sells it for me, it really is high end designer stuff. These are definitely items that should be on your Christmas list to add a lot of glamour to your stocking. If you get a free minute, have a look at Burberry make up online, everything looks amazing.

Lots of love, Em x

  10. Burberry Body is a heavenly scent! I just wasn't too keen on the bottle, if you want to take it out and about, it's a slightly awkward shape! xoxo

  14. Men are often categorised cheap louis vuitton handbags as minimalists when it comes to fashion omega watches online and this is not necessarily a negative thing. Whilst women tend to go over the top best christmas gifts when choosing an outfit and the accessories to go with it, swiss rolex usually opt for a simple two piece combo paired with one or two statement discount gucci handbags accessories. Rather than venturing out on regular shopping trips and choosing a bunch of high street items, men often have work commitments and other hobbies which prevent cheap chanel handbags from shopping as much as women. So when a man finally finds the time to go shopping hermes bag outlet for himself, it is no surprise that they often blow the budget. From smart trousers and cheap louis vuitton handbags and chains, there is so much for a man to consider when trying to achieve a prestigious look. One of the most important cheap omega watches to incorporate into your appearance is a luxury watch.
