Review & Swatches: Burberry Light Glow Blush in Rose No.03 & Blossom No.05




Rose No.03 is a rosy pink color, while Blossom No.05 is a pinky coral. In indoor lighting, they both look semi-matte when applied on the face. Under direct sunlight, Blossom looks shimmery, while Rose has like 3-4 tiny specks of shimmer, which are barely noticeable.


I must warn you, these two colors are extremely pigmented. You must use a light hand and a fluffy brush or you will look clownish. (Tip: Use a dense brush and setting powder to buff out over applied products.) The angled travel brush that comes with the blush is more useful than most brushes that are included in the compacts. It's not as soft as my full size brushes, but it's a decent mini brush. However, I really don't have high expectations from brushes that are included in the compacts and I must admit, I still prefer to use a full size brush to apply my blush. 

Another thing to keep in mind is that it has a strong fragrant scent, which might bother some people, and the compact doesn't fully open all the way.


On to the things I love: I love the classy Burberry packaging, of course and that the signature check pattern is embossed on the actual product. 

The texture feels silky because it contains silicone, but it still feels comfortable on the skin. The blush blends well and lasts all day with no touch ups. 

I find that these 2 shades in particular complement medium skintones. Burberry also offers other shades that are more suitable for lighter complexions (Peony No.04) as well as darker complexions (Russet No.01).

For reference, I'm a Mac NC30/35, Dior Forever 021 mixed with 031, MUFE HD 127 and L'oreal True Match W4.

Note: It's $42 for 7 grams/0.24 ounces at Nordstrom and Sephora.

Have you tried any of Burberry's blushes? I would love to know what you think. =)

  2. Hey Grace!

    I like both, but prefer Blossom a little bit more because coral shades compliment my warm NC30/35 skin tone better. =)
