I was very excited to try out the new Burberry Bright Glow Foundation because base products are up there in my favourite category in beauty and I love Burberry’s take on skin. It is always fresh, glowy and flawless and everything I want for my skin. I have been testing it and have some photos, swatches and thoughts to share with you.

This is the kind of foundation that you could put on in a rush and not bother with bronzer, blusher and highlighter, and still look alive and not at all flat. I discovered that because when I tried it for the first I was in fact really rushing and literally managed a light application of this, then a nude lippy and a quick slick of mascara. And when I looked in the mirror throughout the day, my face still had lots of dimension which was a lovely surprise.

I have the shade Ochre  No 20, which I thought was going to be a touch dark, but actually it evens out my skin nicely and I don’t really feel the need for bronzer to warm things up.

I didn’t set this with powder and it lasted really well. I am always happy when I can skip powder because I love having the real juicy skin look of freshly applied foundation. It’s so hard to keep that with powder.

It bonds with the skin really beautifully and you can pretty much forget that you’re wearing it because it feels so light. It moved a tiny bit on my nose under my glasses, but considering I didn’t even powder my oily t-zone, I don’t think that’s too much of a problem.

I love the glowy, bright finish and the fact that it creates a lot of light and shape to the face without any other products. Also, the anti-pollution complex and SPF30 is a great bonus going into winter, as I am real fan of protecting my skin from the environment all year round.
