Review: Burberry Light Glow Peony Blush

I don’t believe I reviewed any of my Burberry Light Glow Blushes before. I bought a few Burberry items through Harrods online shop last year, and while I have been using them, I haven’t told you about them. It was my first time shopping at Harrods, and while it took them about 2 weeks to put together my stuff (and there weren’t that many, trust me), the shipping itself only took a few days from the UK to Malaysia. I definitely experienced much better customer service, but all the items reached safely in their pristine condition, and that’s the most important thing. I haven’t shopped there ever since, however 😛

If the name Burberry didn’t tell you it’s a luxury brand, the feel of the packaging definitely does. The heavy metal case is sleek and masculine but its smooth and flawless lines make it orgasmic to touch. It’s sexy and well thought out, even Tom Ford packaging doesn’t beat it. My favourite packaging so far, and yes, while it’s all superficial, first impressions and first touch matter before you see the product inside. The blush itself is embossed in Burberry cheque, the same as their eye shadows. The powder is silky and smooth and picking up the product with a brush doesn’t kick up any powder at all. It applies like a dream, and the texture is so fine, the blush blends itself. Yes, I am spoiled and because of this, some of my lower end blushes don’t feel the same anymore. Why you no blend yourself???!!!???

Peony is a very light cool pink and I think will suit lighter skin tones. It can definitely be built up, and someone with medium skin tone can pull it off without it looking ashy. I prefer to apply this lightly just for that slight hint of pink. It gives that barely there blush that makes you wonder if I’m wearing any blush at all. I wore it in my recent post, and you can see that it goes well with nude and bold lipsticks as well. But of course, it clashes if you wear very warm lipstick like orange. Works better with pink, red and berry lips, of course, like how I wore it here. I have a few more of these to show you, but I’ll talk about them another day. Have you tried any of these Burberry Light Glow Blushes before? What’s your favourite shade?

  • One of my favourite blushes is Russet! Gives you super model cheekbones that blush. Thanks for reminding me about it! I need to wear it more!

    • Lily

      Ah Russet I don’t have!! You should wear it definitely 🙂

  • Bella

    This is so pretty, but yes, very cool! I agree with you about Harrods shipping. they ask a flipping fortune, more than Selfridges, and why? I have Burberry Light Glow in Cameo, Blossom, Coral Pink and Hydrangea Pink. I like them, but for some reason don’t use my Burberry very much. (I prefer Hourglass and Nars blush x a million).

    • Lily

      I haven’t tried Hourglass blushes before. NARS, I agree. The blushes are great… but these I find are softer 🙂

  • Hey Lily, isn’t it strange??? You’d think with the amount of money they charge, they’d send your stuff with a DRONE in the next hour or so! Anyways, I recently laid my hands one one of these (Earthy), and it’s pretty good. I need to look into the other shades, but most of them seem a little too muted. Maybe very easy to pair, but I already own so many of those 😉

    • Bella

      Sunny, Blossom is not muted and I think it’s right up your street (coral and all!). It’s actually a pretty , slightly pinky coral, just pink enough not to turn me yellower at all. It’s my favourite of the Burberry blushes I have. Earthy looks so pretty,and is a great simultaneous contour I believe, but I think the benefits are mainly for skin tones lighter than I.

      • Hey Bella, you’re right! I definitely need to take a closer look at Blossom now!

    • Lily

      You’re right. I haven’t had such an encounter before. Even those that ship for free are faster. LOL!

  • Such a pretty and soft colour! I have Earthly and Hydrangea Pink, and love both a lot, esp when I dont want bling and glitter all over the face.

    • Lily

      I have Hydrangea Pink as well. Such a lovely shade!

  • lyn

    Pretty colour! I’m on a blush ban and shall not be tempted by this!

    • Lily

      I’m on a makeup ban, period. LOL!

  • Don’t have any and they’re not p-free, boo, but that means more money for other blush, LOL. I have a quad, though, and I agree – the packaging is some of the nicest out there. So hefty and stuff.

    • Lily

      LOL yup, there are so many other blushes out there 🙂

  • Jaa

    I can never have enough subtle pink like this. ^_^ Peony is so beautiful gaaah!

    • Lily

      I think it’ll look beautiful on you, Jaa!

  • HA HA HA! “Why you no blend yourself???!!!???” Crying! I haven’t tried a Burbs blush yet but Earthy has been on my list for EVER. Sounds like it needs to arrive under my Christmas tree this year from Santa (AKA Mastercard)! 😉

    • Lily

      Wouldn’t life be much easier if blushes blended themselves? LOL!

  • Liz

    Dammit, I still don’t have a Burberry blush. And now we don’t even have a counter. I was hoping to indulge while in San Fran but that didn’t happen. BUT SOME DAY!

    • Lily

      Someday over the rainbow, it’ll be yours. ….
