I haven't tried a Burberry beauty product for ages, but the Burberry Fresh Glow Gel Stick Luminous Foundation & Concealer recently caught my eye. It isn't a new product by any means, but is new to me and so I wanted to try it out.
The Burberry Fresh Glow Gel Stick Luminous Foundation & Concealer comes in many different shades and I opted for the shade Porcelain No. 11, which looks to me like it would be great for light skin tones, but a little warm for fair skin tones. The product comes in a twist-up tube, with classic nude Burberry packaging, so it can be applied straight onto the face or you can apply it to the back of your hand to warm it up and then use a brush or beauty sponge.
It has an innovative water-based formula that is enriched with Aloe Vera and is therefore very soft and light on the skin. The Foundation Stick uses encapsulated water which bursts on contact with the skin, to deliver long-lasting hydration to prevent dryness and caking. I find that it layers beautifully and is easy to build up if you are wanting more coverage. It states it has medium to high coverage, but I would say more medium all in all, however I did find that it covered my redness and smoothed out my pores really well, which I was pleased about.
The overall effect this foundation gives is one of those 'lit from within' glows, making my complexion look super healthy and smooth. I enjoy that this is a hydrating foundation as I do get dry patches on my skin, and instead of sticking to those dry areas, it smooths them out and keeps them nourished. The formula uses optical diffusers to reflect light, which helps to illuminate and define the facial contours for a radiant finish, and it is definitely one of the prettiest looking foundations I have tried in a while and I am over the moon with how it makes my skin look.
Due to a lot of face covering use, I often try to steer clear of heavier foundations and so this is the perfect everyday product as it is quick and easy to apply, makes my skin look dewy and healthy and has excellent staying power.
The Burberry Fresh Glow Gel Stick Luminous Foundation & Concealer retails for £36.00 for 9g and you can find it online at Look Fantastic here.
