Expressing my feelings about these blushes will quickly turn from a rational description, to effusive gushing, and finally to incoherent babble- because I'm suffering from a special kind of Burberry inebriation. I know that many of you suffer from the same affliction- so you undoubtedly understand what I speak of!
The texture is soft, smooth, silky, and utterly sublime. This is one of the most refined and finely milled powder blushes to have ever graced my cheeks. While the colors are quite tame, understated and reserved- they are quite buildable. Once applied, they last all day long on my cheeks, but your mileage may vary. I can find no fault with this formula.
What serves as a deal-breaker for some- does not for me, but do be advised that like Burberry lip products the blushes are also quite heavily fragranced (a strong floral). I find that the scent dissipates upon application, or very soon thereafter. That said, if you are amongst the many who either cannot tolerate fragrance in your makeup, or simply abhor the idea of placing fragranced products on your face- then you should avoid these blushes. Do note, however, that I have never detected any fragrance in Burberry eyeshadows.
Cameo (No. 02) is a mid-tone dusty rose shade. This color has a chameleon-like color shifting quality depending on whether you have warmer or cooler toned skin. People with fairer skin might find the pigmentation a bit too rich and the hue too dark, but blended down and applied with a light hand should render beautiful results.
Peony (No. 04) is a gorgeous blue-based pink that is brighter, darker and more vibrant than Misty. It is a very clear pink that translates beautifully onto the skin. This is one of those perfect pinks that creates a lovely flushed appearance that is natural looking, and simply stunning.
I sandwiched Cameo and Peony between Misty in order for you to see each of the colors together, and to demonstrate the differences between Misty and Peony. All three are classic shades that aren't what one would call unusual, bold, or particularly unique in hue. They are timeless rather than trendy, and therefore make the hefty price tag more palatable because they won't go out of style. The colors are gorgeous, the quality is exceptional, and everything from the packaging to the contents is luxe. None of the shades are glittery pearl filled blushes, but instead they create the impression of a natural glow from within (as the name aptly suggests). While I'm not in the least bit bothered by the fragrance, I would have preferred for the blushes to be fragrance-free. In my estimation, it simply isn't at all necessary to add fragrance to makeup products because there are far too many people with sensitivities and allergies who are excluded from the enjoyment of those products.
