While I was in Milan, I did some swatching at a Burberry store. One of the things I decided to check out was the Burberry fresh glow highlight- a powder version of their popular fresh glow primer.
Like all Burberry products, the packaging was stunning, but I was curious. Does the product inside match the hefty price tag?
Rose gold is like a subtle champagne pop while pink pearl is the perfect shade for a candlelit glow. White is an icy color that may look chalky on deep skin tones. Nude gold is probably the best shade for deeper skin tones (but even then it probably won’t work on anyone darker than a medium tone).
All of the shades swatch beautifully. All of these were done with 1 swipe (finger swatch) for pigment and another half swipe to even out the color. They glide onto my hand smoothly and the powder feels incredibly soft and finely milled.
Here’s my dilemma: These cost $68. Charlotte Tilbury’s iconic Bronze and Glow costs the same amount, and that comes with a highlight and a bronzer. It also comes with nearly twice the product.
So here’s what I have to say. If I happened to win the lottery, I would get one of these (probably pink pearl). And I’m sure I would love it. Until then, I’m chalking this up to be another overpriced powder that is pretty nice, but most definitely not worth the hefty price tag.
