Today was gloomy and overcast...tomorrow is expected to be gloomy and rainy, so I won't be able to take sunny outdoor swatch pictures as soon as I had hoped. For those interested to at least get an idea here are some indoor pictures!!! As a note, these are taken with daylight bulb lighting, and I also used 2 different cameras to try to capture some different views and picked what are hopefully the most useful swatches.
...if you missed the Burberry Spring 2013 product post, check it here!!
Burberry Sheer Eye Shadow in No. 26 Gold Pearl
Burberry Light Glow Natural Blush in No. 10 Hydrangea Pink
Burberry Lip Glow in No. 20 Pink Sweet Pea (LE)
Burberry Lip Glow in No. 19 Mallow Pink
Supposedly only the Lip Glow No. 20 Pink Sweet Pea is limited edition.
Gold Pearl is very sheer, and more sparkly swatched then in the compact. Though it is somewhat shimmery too, you can definitely see the sparkle though I don't find it obnoxious. It's subtle enough for a nice evening look, but personally I don't know if I can pull it off for day? Will have to play with it. I did wear it today, and the sparkles did fall below my eyes...so be sure to wear a primer - I didn't. Further down are more pictures of the sparkle.
Hydrangea Pink is super pigmented. I wore this today and barely touched my brush to the blush and lightly applied what little was on the brush - kept doing that until it finally was the color I wanted. Don't go heavy handed to start :-)
These glosses actually stain my lips somewhat. Nothing strong, but enough that if you wore balm over them it would give you a nice flush of color. The colors are sheer-ish but not so much so that you wonder why you applied anything in the first place. Of course you could apply very little and have a sheer effect if you wanted to...but these are definitely not opaque.
Sooooo...anything catch your fancy yet?
