Hi lovely ladies,
This is my first article on IMBB. I read posts on IMBB regularly and love all of them. Today, I am going to review Burberry Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base. I love using primers and makeup base. I have used Dermalogica, Inglot Under Makeup Base, and primers by MAC, but right now, this one is my favorite. My sister brought it for me from Singapore.
This light fluid illuminates the complexion, resulting in an understated and elegant ‘lit-from-within’ Burberry glow. The 55% water-infused primer glides across the skin with incredible ease and hydrates instantly. Its blend of mirror-flat intense reflection pearls help to blur minor imperfections for a shimmer-free, youthful luminosity. The formula can be used in multiple ways: Apply to n*de skin or under foundation to illuminate. Blend into eye shadow, creating a glowing wash of transparent color. Smooth onto cheekbones, the bridge of the nose and the Cupid’s bow to highlight.
75 SGD, approximately Rs. 3505/- for 30 ml.
Available in 2 shades: N0 – 1 Nude Radiance, No 2- Golden Radiance.
How To Use:
Apply Fresh Glow all over clean face for immediate, natural radiance. They claim that,to perfect your complexion and give skin an added glow, mix Fresh Glow with your shade Fluid Foundation. To highlight and sculpt the face, apply Fresh Glow over your makeup to cheekbones, bridge of nose and chin.
My Experience with Burberry Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base:
I have picked up the shade “Nude Radiance,” which is for very fair and fair skin tones whereas Golden Radiance is for dusky skin tones.
Packaging: I love the packaging. It looks exactly like the Burberry Fresh Glow Foundation with the iconic Burberry pattern. It is light and travel friendly and comes with a pump. I would also like to mention that the pump has a lock feature, so you never have to worry about the foundation leaking out while traveling.
Texture and Finish: The texture is creamy. It blends with your skin so beautifully that when you spread it out, it looks little sheer and transparent.
I have combination skin and my skin is very much sensitive. I have an oily T zone which means I need a mattifying effect on that area, so I pair it with a foundation like Estee Lauder Double Wear Maximum Cover Camouflage Foundation or Burberry Fresh Glow Foundation. This primer gels perfectly with both the foundations to add a luminous finish. I was so surprised that my face looked so fresh, glow-y and healthy. It definitely gives a fresh glow to the face. It holds up through heat and humidity.
I used it for my cocktail party and I danced like anything, but my face was looking fresh even after so much exertion. You just have to dab a little bit powder on your face if your skin is oily (compact or loose powder whatever suits your face). I usually use Clinique Blended Face Powder. I also used this product for my engagement.
Sometimes, I also use it without foundation, with a good sunscreen when I have casual office meetings. It imparts a natural glow to my face and I love it!
Also not to forget, as the product claims, I once used it as a highlighter over the primer and it gives a completely natural effect without being glittery. Let me also mention that a little product goes a long way.
Pros of Burberry Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base:
- Gives a fresh glow and radiance to the skin when mixed with a foundation.
- Comes in a pump packaging, with a lock in mechanism.
- Flawless and lightweight for everyday use.
- Does not dry out the skin.
Cons of Burberry Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base:
- A bit pricey, but totally worth it.
- Limited availability in India.
- No SPF.
