It's All About That Lace: Burberry's Spring Runway Palette Is Something Of Beauty
Some brands I love because they're truly effective, affordable or innovative; others I love simply because they create lustworthy products that are oh-so-pretty. Burberry is one of those brands. Their makeup may be eye-wateringly expensive, but sometimes a girl has just got to treat herself! As soon as I set eyes on this new Spring-Summer 'Runway Palette' I couldn't resist the purity of the tone and the elegance of the design; it's so beautiful that I've barely managed to bring myself to swatch it, let alone use it. This lace pattern embossed on the surface was inspired by the fabrics of the SS16 clothing collections, which are equally as stunning (I've got my eye on a coffee coloured lace trench coat, in case you were wondering.) It's great to see the fashion brand ensuring there's a genuine fashion link between their catwalk garments and their beauty collection; the outer pack even features a slip-on plastic lace protective cover, just to make this highlighting powder stand out even more in store! Like all of Burberry's highlighters and powders, this is super-lightweight and glides over skin effortlessly to add a touch of light to skin - that is, if you can bring yourself to use it rather than just stare at it. It's buildable too, so you can create a much more intense 'strobing' effect if that's your thing. My thing? Keeping this in an air-tight drawer so I can bring it out when I need to remember there are beautiful things in the world worth cherishing.
