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.
