It’s no secret that I love the Burberry Beauty line. I have never been disappointed by any of their products. When I saw that their spring collection contained new blushes and a new eyeshadow I was incredibly excited, to say the least.

I recently stopped by the Burberry counter at my local Nordstrom and was excited to see the spring line up out. I picked up a few things that caught my eye.

Burberry Hydrangea Pink Blush

It’s bright, pink, and slightly fuchsia toned. In one word: it’s gorgeous. Like all Burberry blushes I have tried it is utterly smooth and silky, and packs quite a punch in the pigmentation department.

Burberry Hydrangea Pink Blush Comparison Swatches

Swatches L-R: MAC Salsarose, MAC Azalea, Tarte Natural Beauty, Burberry Hydrangea Pink

Hydrangea seems to sit somewhere in between Natural Beauty and Azalea. I am so thrilled Burberry is releasing brighter colors in the lip and cheek department. This bright pop of pink is the exact blush I was looking for for spring.

Burberry Gold Pearl Shadow

Burberry Gold Pearl Shadow

I was initially a bit hesitant to purchase this shade because I wasn’t sure how exactly it compared to the other Burberry neutrals I have in my arsenal. Turns out it’s quite different but it is also more sheer than other shades from their line.

It also has a fine shimmer shot throughout. You can see the shimmer particles in the photos above and below.

Burberry Gold Pearl Swatch Comparisons

Swatches L-R: Burberry Pale Barley, Burberry Trench, Burberry Gold Trench, Burberry Gold Pearl, Burberry Porcelain

You can see that Gold Pearl is much more yellow in tone and much lighter than most of the other shades. It’s closest relative is Trench, but Trench is more neutral. As I said above, it’s more sheer then many of the other shades I have tried. It might be one best swatched in person if you can.

Burberry Sweet Pea Swatches

Burberry Pink Sweet Pea

The one gloss that captivated me from this release was Pink Sweet Pea. It’s a very unique color (look at that shimmer!) and it pairs well with the Hydrangea Blush. It leaves behind a nice stain on the lips long after the gloss has worn off. The formula is comfortable, not tacky or sticky. It wears off evenly, and can be built up or sheered down to your liking. It’s my favorite item from the collection!

Burberry Sweet Pea Swatch Comparisons

Swatches L-R: NARS Strawberry Fields, Burberry Pink Sweet Pea, NARS Easy Lover

When I pulled glosses to compare it to I really couldn’t find anything I had that was close. Strawberry Fields is much darker, and Easy Lover is lighter and much more sheer, but does contain a similar shimmer. But just LOOK at that color. It’s absolutely swoon-worthy, right?! It has a blue-ish shimmer that you can see in the sun and it’s perfection on the lips. My SA couldn’t confirm it, but I have heard that this shade is limited edition.

What spring collection have you admired the most so far? For me, I’d definitely say Burberry is at the very top.

    Hi, you XD Burberry really did take on bright lips and cheeks, huh? Hydrangea Pink looks like a perfect blend of Azalea and Natural Beauty. I can see it pairing well with a subtly smokey gold and bronze eye this summer. Pink Sweet Pea really packs a punch too. I hope to see these paired in a FOTD post sometime soon!

  2. i really want pink sweet pea and hydrangea pink AHHH! thanks for the swatches :)

    I think I need Hydrangea Pink! It looks so bright in the pan, but your swatch has convinced me it is definitely wearable! I haven’t got to see Burberry yet. So far I’m really sweet on the Chanel and Guerlain spring colletions!

    Hydrangea Pink looks just perfect for spring! And Pink Sweet Pea is gorgeous! Lovely swatches and comparisons as always.

  6. Such lovely products, and lovely swatches! I want that blush.

  7. Awesome swatches! Love me some fuchsia, and now my need to get these has been turned up to eleven. :P

  8. I’m surprised at how neon Sweet Pea is — it’s a surprisingly daring colour for Burberry!

  9. I picked up both blushes today because I couldn’t decide between the two. I absolutely adore Burberry beauty.

    Oh I am loving these gorgeous shades! I am unable to get to a Burberry counter but am adoring the new Chanel offerings – just in time for my birthday hehe.

    Thank you for comparing all those Burberry eye shadows to Gold Pearl. I have all those ones, too, and I am torn about if I should get Gold Pearl or not. Do you find it has glitter fall out at all? I am sure I will end up getting it eventually, knowing my love of these shadows. I was told this color is a good brightener. I find that Trench is a little darker than I want it to be at times.

    I have to concur Danielle, Burberry’s spring collection is at the top of my list. It’s probably the only one on my list, actually! LOL So far nothing else has rocked my world, but that blush and lipgloss need to come play at my house :P

  13. Oh my, these are gorgeous! I agree Sweet Pea is great for spring and summer and that pop of color–a surprise from Burberry. Pale Barley is my favorite eye shadow of all the Burberry shadows.Thank you so much for Gold Pearl to the others, I think I’ll stick with my LM Gilded Moonlight–more pigment.
