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.
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
