Burberry Fresh Glow Primer/Corrector
I was very excited when I received the Burberry 'Fresh Glow' as a Christmas gift. As the product that was allegedly used on Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in the infamous Burberry 'Body' adverts, my first thoughts turned to whether I could look as much of a mega babe as Rosie. After I quickly snapped back to reality (*sigh), my first thought turned to the packaging. They say don't judge a book by its cover, but when it comes to cosmetics I am alllll about the packaging (sound the shallow horn).
The chunkyness of this item straightaway made me think luxury. We've all owned a cheap item that the lid comes off after one use and explodes everywhere, so I appreciate the fact that you could probably throw this in your bag walking out of the door without later finding it in pieces and stuck to your bag lining.
The product is supposed to be a multi-use, between a primer and highlighter. It is definitely a product with light coverage, and provides a glow without the sparkle/glitter element that seems to be in a lot of highlighter style products, especially ones I have tried i the past. Because of this it has a much more natural effect which makes it really versatile in terms of wearing it for day or night.
It also works well as a primer, but it almost seems a waste to use this as primer when it looks so nice on the face as a base or highlighter.
This is going to be a go to product of mine when I faze out my heavier foundation over summer. Though knowing the UK I may be waiting a long time...
