On most days, I like to go for an easy and light makeup look that can get me out of the house in under 10 minutes. The essentials include the following: on fleek brows, mascara, eyeliner and blush.
I was really excited to be able to try new products from Burberry that had potential to become a part of my daily routine. Starting with the blush palette, the packaging feels quite exquisite and had a really pleasant pattern on it. I took a liking to the blush as it had little specks of gold shimmer that shone subtly in the light, along with pigmentation that was buildable and not too harsh. A highlight and a blush combined into one is really handy when you’re short of time. Plus, it came with a compact slanted brush that is really convenient when I’m on the go.
The Full Brows came as a brush liner on one end and a powder wax shadow on the other, something I’ve never tried before, as I’m more accustomed to brow pencils and powders. These gave more of a subtle tint that was not as intense as I hoped it would’ve been. As someone with sparse brows, it basically did very little to give me definition and shape, although I can imagine how well this would work for someone with a bit more eyebrow hair.
In my KULALA Beauty Pack, there were also two Cat Eye Liners that had similar packaging to the brow pens – one brown, one black. The brush tip applicator is something I love very much, as it’s good for creating thin lines to achieve the perfect cat eye flick. As for the other end, it’s amazing for a smokey eye that I might try for a nighttime look. Although the colours are not the most intense, it suits my daily makeup because it’s more natural. I took it out for a test run to see how it would hold up in Singapore’s humidity. Even though it did fade off, it didn’t smudge or give me panda eyes. Would I still wear it? That is a yes.
