New make up basics: Burberry

I am not a big fan of Burberry like most Asians. I don’t like the emblematic, monochromatic plaid. I’ve always thought it was too  English, too preppy and a bit sad. I do appreciate the classic Burberry trench, don’t get me wrong. But the plaid? Hell no.

So, I was very intrigued by all the buzz that the Burberry beauty line created last year. It must be good, I thought, since it’s been compared to Giorgio Armani Beauty and for me that has got to be the best make up out there. I’m a loyal fan, so I was skeptical of Burberry.

But, in December, after finding a store that carried the beauty brand, I succumbed ( as I am the perfect victim of  glossy advertising) to purchasing a few products.

Verdict: I was quite amazed. The packaging ( a subtle plaid etching on gun metal), is heavy and elegant. The quality is wonderful. All three products went beyond my expectations.
