I’m having a bit of a love affair with Burberry makeup at the moment. There are a few products that have become permanent fixtures in my makeup bag, the most recent one being their latest launch – Lip and Cheek Bloom*.
The Lip and Cheek Blooms are a multi-use product that’s designed to give a soft wash of colour that works on both lips and cheeks. It’s a very creamy formula that works best dabbed on with your fingertips and blended out for a soft, subtle finish.
There are six shades in the range to choose from, ranging from 01 Rose, which is a soft pale pink, through to 09 Poppy, a bright red. I was slightly scared about Poppy when I initially opened up the packaging – I thought I’d be happy to use this on my lips but that it would be going nowhere near my cheeks as it looks so bright in the pan! That assumption was proved totally wrong though – the product might look bright, but applies as a gentle flush of colour that manages to look natural even on my pasty skin. You can build these up for more depth if you want, but I love the gentle finish these give.
Despite being cream products, these don’t slip and slide off the skin. Once it’s on, it stays in place for hours at a time. Lasting power is obviously a bit better on the cheeks than the lips, but in both areas it acts as a slight stain, leaving you with a hint of colour for hours on end.
If you’re previously stayed away from cream blushers for fear of overdoing it, then definitely give these a try – they’re honestly so simple to use!
Burberry Lip and Cheek Blooms cost £24 each and can be found from Harrods and in Burberry beauty boutiques.
