Burberry Beauty Has Landed
We told you it was coming, and now the wait is finally over. Burberry Beauty launches online at Nordstrom today, bringing with it all of the chic, effortless versatility you’ve come to expect from the heritage brand’s wildly popular apparel. “It was the only element missing,” according to Burberry designer Christopher Bailey, who conceived the idea of a cosmetics line while working on a runway show a few years back.
Each of the face, lip, and eye products is crafted to be easily applied and easily worn, boasting incredibly soft, breathable textures. A color palette of smoky metallics and neutral khaki tones calls to mind Burberry’s iconic trench, as does the signature check pattern that graces every compact of face powder and tube of lip gloss. Standouts include the Natural Bronzer in No. 1 Warm Glow—a powder formula that melts into your skin; the Sheer Eye Shadow in No. 6 Almond, a taupe-y greige that perfectly mimics the color of those blessed with slightly pigmented eyelids; and the Lip Cover in No. 19 Brick Red, one of the brighter hues in the collection that still retains a certain neutrality insofar as it is a well-executed version of the quintessential, deep color that somehow manages to look like it belongs on anyone who tries it. And bonus points for the magnetic closures that make each item feel that much more luxurious.
