Burberry Spring 2016 Runway illuminator palette review
Burberry's spring runway palette is an absolute beaut. I can't lie when I tell you that it really pained me to swatch this bad boy - the embossed design is just so lovely!

The runway palette forms part of their limited edition Velvet & Lace collection, which has all been inspired by their spring/summer womenswear launches. It's a small but perfectly formed collection, with two illuminating powders, a black cherry polish and a nude gold cream eye shadow.

The stars of the show definitely have to be the illuminating powders, not just for the stunning lace design embossed on the surface but also for the amazing ethereal glow they manage to give the skin.

I've been testing out the White 01 shade which works perfectly on cool skin tones, but there's also a gold version which I think would be great for anyone with a deeper or warmer tone to their skin.

The white shade is a step away from my usual highlighter shades and I was worried it might be quite harsh, but it gives a really wonderful glow to the skin. It's also not at all glittery - it's got a definite sheen to it but none of that typical sparkle that you often find with very light highlighters. It also lasts incredibly well on the skin - I applied mine at 7am and was still very happy with the finish at 8pm, despite the fact my foundation had gone a bit patchy underneath. 

Although it might be a bit of a luxe purchase, I always feel that Burberry's packaging really helps you feel like you're making a good investment. The silver-toned palette is very sturdy, with a magnetic clasp to ensure it stays closed in your makeup bag. They also include a mini brush (average) and a velvet pouch to help protect it while you're on the go; I have to admit though, this one will be staying firmly in my collector's item drawer for the forseeable future! 

As you'd expect, these are limited edition palettes so grab one asap while stocks last. You can find them via the Burberry website and on selected Burberry counters worldwide, priced £45.
