Burberry Beauty Sheer Foundation

Burberry Beauty Sheer Foundation
Burberry Beauty Sheer Foundation (A$75/30ml) is my absolute HG foundation - no doubt about it! The Sheer Foundation line is available in 9 different shades and each shade is labelled as 'Trench', as in the famous Burberry Trench coat, follower by a number between 1 and 9 where 1 is the lightest and 9 is the darkest shade. My skin was matched to Trench No. 05 which is equivalent to MAC NC20. The packaging is just ah-mazing! The iconic Burberry check pattern is adorned on the cap and gives a luxurious and sophisticated look to the foundation bottle. The dispenses a small amount and I always end up using about 1 and a half pumps for each application. The bottle looks very bulky, though the bottle is made from a durable and lightweight plastic material - no more breakages when dropped.

Burberry Beauty Sheer Foundation has a very unique scent which is subtle yet quite pleasant, however, the scent disappears after awhile. The lightweight formula has a relatively thick consistency, however, it melts into the skin and spreads very easily to give a flawless complexion with a radiant glow. I am amazed about the consistency as my first impressions was that the thick foundation would not spread easily, however, the formula does contain silicone derivatives which helps to provide a smooth and even finish to make the skin feel naked. The coverage is medium to heavy and conceals small blemishes, dark under eye circles and redness around the corners of my nose. Burberry Beauty Sheer Foundation is buildable, so you could either layer on more product using or foundation brush or use a sponge for heavier coverage. The formula feels very hydrating and comfortable on my skin. I especially love the longevity of Burberry Beauty Sheer Foundation as it sits well along my T-zone and does not fade during the day. Overall, I am very pleased with the results of Burberry Beauty Sheer Foundation, the scent, consistency, quality, hydrating properties, finish and longevity, and I will definitely find myself repurchasing once this foundation runs out.

 Have you used any Burberry Beauty products? Which is your HG foundation?
