The BURBERRY Fresh Glow Foundation SPF 15 PA+++ came out on the market a while back, and it sucessfully replaced in the top of my preferences, the now discontinued Burberry Sheer Foundation, which used to be a favourite of mine for the spring and summer months! I used to have that one in the colour No.04 Trench, if I’m remembering well!
Then, two years ago, another Burberry face base was launched ( the Burberry Fresh Glow B.B. Cream – the best B.B. I had the chance to try, even better than Dior and even Estée Lauder… I know, bold statement there, which I obvioulsy assume! See for yourself what I mean in this post here! ) and made me forget about my Sheer, which eventually went out of date somewhere in the depths of my makeup drawers, and I had to dispose of it!
Long story short, I was extremely happy to see that Burberry “brings my favourite back”, be it in another form, with another name and other shade range ( which to be completely honest, was a little bit of a nightmare to match myself to, since for my Sheer in Tench, I got matched to in Milan, at the Burberry counter from La Rinascente, in Piazza Duomo… ).
The formula of the BURBERRY Fresh Glow Foundation SPF 15 PA+++ is comfortable, and gives that no-makeup-look I adore. It’s also very beneficial for the skin, as the formula features “vitamins and moisturising extracts ( Burberry’s signature blend of rosehip, tea and lavender extract ) to help keep skin hydrated for up to eight hours and enhance skin suppleness”. Plus it’s packed with anti-oxidants and sunscreens factors to “help protect against the damaging effects of the sun.”, being free of Parabens, Sulfates, Phthalates.
It has medium buildable satin coverage and a natural-looking finish, it’s light, which I prefer my bases to be, and exquisitely dewey, very close to the radiance of natural daylight!…
On certain complexions, this might give the illusion of an oily look… But if you ask me, it’s just an excessive dewey-ness, which I personally prefer in my face bases! I love the aspect of an healthy-looking complexion, especially during the hot months of the year and to balance everything out, I like to keep the rest on my makeup as matte as possible! I’m thinking matte eyes and matte lips!… It’s only a personal preference though, as I think matte foundation makes my complexion look powdery, chalky and pretty much old.
I found that it applies best with my Tom Ford #02 Creamy Foundation Brush and with my damp Beauty Blender to uniformize the colour and the finish! I go with my Beauty Blender over the brush application, because I found out that like that the foundation doesn’t accentuate pores or cling onto any eventual dry patches I have!
Also, this is the kind of foundation you need to give it time to set, then apply your other powder products: setting powder, contour, highlight, blusher and finishing powder.
This colour I own, Ochre No.20, has a lot more pink undertones in it than I usually go for, but when blended out, it somehow manages to give me a beautiful, luminous look, and a bit of a tan as well!
You can see me wearing it in this post here!
Can’t wait for the warmer weather to be here, to get some colour onto my pale slin and to properly wear this foundation again!
Well, it’s also almost gone! So, I’m waiting for your recommendations!
See you soon, Beautiful!
