Burberry Light Glow Blush 07- Earthy Blush

Today's bit of Burberry for today is the final shade I've selected in my first purchases from Burberry's Light Glow Blush range. By luck or circumstance, all three lean brown or orange.

Shade 07, Earthy Blush, is not a traditional blush.  This shade was really designed to be a contour shade for us fair ladies. Although I've swatched it like a traditional blush, this is really meant for contouring.

Earthy is shimmery without sparkling.  It's finely milled powder and blends very well.  Burberry's blushes last all day on me and are among my favorites in terms of ease to worth with.

I used a MAC 130SE in order to pick up the maximum pigment for these swatches. This sheers out wonderfully on the skin.

Overall, I find this lovely for contouring, and it fills a hole in my collection.


  1. Hi! I just started following last week. So, I apologize if this question has already been answered, but have you tried Burberry Misty? I just saw it compared to Chanel's discontinued Narcisse on lola's secret beauty blog (I think). It looks lovely. I've been kicking myself for not getting Narcisse for years. :) I haven't tried any Burberry products yet, but your beautiful swatches have been convincing me to give it a try. Your Chanel summer 2014 swatches drove me to order much more than I originally anticipated as well. :)

  2. Hi there and welcome!

    I haven't tried Burberry Misty, but it and Peony are the next 2 on my list to try. I accidentally ended up with just brown and orange blushes from Burberry with my initial three. I do really recommend Burberry. I resisted until two months ago, believe it or not!

    Sorry for your wallet with Chanel Summer 2014! I'm mulling over what my second batch of purchases will be at the moment. The shades are all really wearable (save the cream blush for me), so you can't really go wrong. What did you purchase?

  3. That's quite alright. I was planning on getting New Moon. Then I saw that they were going to have Utopia, the shimmering lavender, and knew I couldn't resist. I had planned to avoid the bronze shade since I figured the holiday bronze would suffice, but after seeing your swatches I got all three and the purple mascara. I'm seriously considering the eye liner because it looks gorgeous, but I never have good luck with Chanel eye liners not making a mess on my face. I'm going to wait on the cheeks and lips to see them in person. I bought the new Joues Contraste blush in Vivacite sight unseen...big mistake. I know I'm in the minority, but I never seem to love Chanel blushes.
