Burberry Sheer Foundation Luminous Fluid Foundation No. 02 Trench

It’s in the midweek now and the weekend is going to hit right around the corner. I want to share with everyone my latest catch which is Burberry’s Sheer Foundation that I bought at Nordstrom. The packaging right off the bat, is like walking in and out of the boutique with trench inspired thick khaki colored shopping bags with the word “Burberry” in the middle. Instead of walking out with bags they made the packaging feel the same as if your walking out of the Burberry store. So lets get down to the details!

What I find that sets Burberry apart from everyone is the stylish but elegant looking case. Obviously it has the infamous Burberry check insignia on the top of its case. Even though the whole thing is made of plastic the feel is very smooth.

Out of the nine shades for the liquid foundation I picked No. 2 Trench, is the second lightest shade with a subtle pink tone.

I found that the “instruct-able” on the box to be rather amazing. It shows how the pump should be twisted to work especially in a sketch!

This thoughtful design sure eliminates unwanted spillage of the foundation. The transparent bottle makes picking up the right shade a breeze.

I noticed while popping open the case there is a mechanism that ensure the top does not come off the bottle randomly. I think they made it a little too tight but I guess after much use, it would loosen up.

After dispensing on the back of my hand, there’s an earthy rose scent lingering in the air. Even though the name suggests, “liquid foundation” the consistency is rather thick like cream.

Once smoothed on, a radiant yet luminous sheen is added to the skin. Looks very bright! It’s also moisturizing and leaves my skin soft and flawless.

I just had the urge to compare Burberry’s Sheer Foundation (L) to Lunasol’s Water Cream Foundation OC02 (R). Much to my surprise even though Burberry had a natural glow and luminous look, the coverage along with the oil control was rather lacking. That makes it more suitable for normal to dry skin and great for winter time.

    I have not tried this brand before but this looks promising, the finish is beautiful.

    I usually go for a yellow base finish though so not too sure if this would compliment asian skin with yellow under tone.

    Thank you for sharing =)

    Thanks for commenting! I got the pans at Coastal Scents. TKB Trading also has them and they are cheaper there, but TKB has a minimum spending amount.
