Review: Burberry Light Glow Blossom Blush

This is just another short post on another blush by Burberry. I have already elaborated on the packaging before, so I won’t repeat myself. Let’s just say this is something I won’t depot. I love the case, even though it’s heavy an it takes up precious space πŸ™‚Β I bought this blush online from Harrods many moons ago, together with other goodies. I don’t know if I should recommend getting stuff from there because it took them more than a week to pack my stuff but after they sent it out to the courier company, the package arrived in just a few days. Anyhoo…

 

Burberry Light Glow Blush

Blossom Blush No 5

Today, I will show you Blossom. It is quite a pigmented blush, compared to Peony, and I prefer to use a very soft blush brush that is not as dense to apply this. I tried using the brush included, and it just wasn’t flattering. The colours were not diffused properly, and the colour went on too strong at first swipe. Not my usual way of applying. I like to keep things soft, and slowly build from there. When I use the brush included, it also kicked up more powder compared to when I use my Chikuhodo Z4 or my Lunasol cheek brush.Β Burberry blushes are a dream to apply, as I have mentioned before. They are easy to blend, and I never have the problem of having the blush disappear on me. It is definitely a splurge, but a splurge worth your while πŸ™‚

How would I describe Blossom… I’d say it looks like coral peachy pink? On my arm, it swatches more pink, but on me, it definitely looks warmer. See photo below – it definitely translates pink, doesn’t it?

And here is how it looks on me. More coral than pink! So I’m thinking maybe this blush will pull more pink on those with cooler skin tones, and if you have warmer skin tones like mine, it might look more peachy coral πŸ™‚

Today also marks my 8th wedding anniversary, but I’m confined at home, staying with the newborn. I guess we’ll be celebrating at home, with the new addition to the family. Perhaps we’ll make up for it when I’m allowed to go out – then, we’ll have a date night! I am blessed to have a very kind and gentle yet fierce and protective man to call a husband, a childhood sweetheart, someone who loves me through all the thick and thin, smelly farts, burps, snores and all. Now with 2 girls and a little baby boy, our family is complete and I look forward to all the adventures we’ll have together πŸ™‚

  • Hey Lily, happy wedding anniversary!!! I hope you’ll have a great time in the house and maybe something to make up for it afterwards πŸ™‚

    I reaaaallly need to look into Burberry blushes! I have Earthy and I really like the texture. Blossom might be a bit light for me, but it’s perfect on you! I like how coral it pulls!

    • Lily

      Thanks Sunny. Actually, Blossom might look really natural on you! If you have access to a Burberry counter, you’ll need to try it on πŸ™‚

  • Happy Wedding Anniversary to you both! Sounds like life is awesome for you both! Congrats!
    Wow, pink on the arm but very coral on the cheeks! I used to have Russet but gave it away to Marky, so next time I’m at a counter I plan on picking it up because I miss it!

    • Lily

      Thanks Tracy. Yeah! How weird is it that it looks so pink on my arm and not on me? LOL! I blame my yellow undertones. So many people talk about Russet – I should look into that

    Happy Wedding Anniversary Lily! I really need to try one blush from burberry..this shade looks very much similar to thebalm frat boy! coral peachy pinks are my favorite type of blushes after the earthy tones πŸ™‚
    Absolutely loving your eye makeup in this look..so pretty!

    • Lily

      Thank you Parita. I haven’t explored many blushes by TheBalm, except for 2 InStains.

  • Awww! Such a sweet little notw about your husband and family! Happy 8th Anniversary!
    Very surprised how peachy coral the blusher pulled, but I really like it on you, very natural and fresh, pairing very well with the eye look you did here!

    • Lily

      Thank you Noodles. Corals suit my skintone, but I didn’t expect it to look so warm on me. LOL!

  • Ah, so sweet, Lily. Happy anniversary! πŸ˜€

    I can’t wear Burberry blushers because of ingredients, so every time someone raves about how lovely they are I’m like :*(. But it’s ok. Hahahaha.

    • Lily

      Thanks Larie, and BOO… do you get rashes or itches or something?

  • Happy Anniversary! πŸ™‚
    I’d buy a Burberry blush just for the packaging. I love the shade on you, it might be too light or cool toned for me. I really like the shade Cameo though, it’s on my wishlist! πŸ™‚

    • Lily

      Thank you Xuvious. And yes, GET CAMEO!

  • Hi Lily, happy wedding anniversary! πŸ˜‰ And I honestly thought that I was settled in the blush department as I have acquired so many new ones over the last months, but wow … This looks STUNNING on you! I really need to look into Burberry blushes, like in asap!

    Hope you had a great day with your hubbie! πŸ˜‰

    X Alice

    • Lily

      Thank you Alice πŸ™‚ There are so many blushes out there, but these Burberry ones are absolutely divine. I mean, given the price point, I’d be pretty upset if they weren’t!

  • Liz

    Sounds like a nice snuggly evening. Happy anniversary! πŸ™‚

    I just got Cameo from Gummy’s blog sale and it’s so dreamy to apply – now I know what everyone’s been talking about. I’m dying a little at your shot of the still immaculate blush pan. Apparently the Burberry boutique in our city now sells the makeup too, so I’ll be taking a dangerous voyage there shortly!

    • Lily

      Thanks Liz. It was just another evening, with the baby. We did watch a movie in bed though πŸ™‚
      Ooo… and do let me know how your little adventure to Burberry goes. It is dangerous!

  • Wow, happy wedding anniversary! And so much you have achieved together in all these years! I’m probably a day or two late in writing this. Even if you stayed home, I hope you wore this or another gorgeous blush πŸ˜‰ xx

    • Lily

      Thank you Sofia! Unfortunately I didn’t get to use any blush. I haven’t used any makeup since Ashton was born, actually. Lol!

  • Happy anniversary, Lily! You look glowing and beautiful as always. I’ve been lemming a Burberry blush for literally YEARS. This one looks amaze. I hope you guys do get to go out and celebrate your 8 years of marital awesome! XOXO

    • Lily

      Thanks Kristen. We stayed at home but made up for it later πŸ™‚

  • wow the color is so prettiness so do the packaging

    • Lily
