Do you remember this post where my friend Evelyn graciously swatched the Burberry Summer Collection for all of you?? Well, now it is available at Nordstrom & Burberry Beauty online! The collection as of yet is not available at Saks Fifth Avenue online. Affiliate links.
The bottom swatch is Burberry Pale Barley to contextualize the lighter color in palette No. 01

Fresh Glow in Bronze blended
Here are Evelyn's observations,
The creams spread well with either a brush or your finger. I had them on all day and no creasing, fading or patchiness and it's very humid here today. They will smudge if you rub your eye.
There was good color payoff with one pass of the brush though I found the light turquoise on palette 1 applied more sheerly. It built up well, though.
The dark brown in palette 2 reminds me of the dark cream shadow Tom Ford did for his first Estée Lauder collection.
The Fresh Glow is darker in the bottle than it photographed. The small pump of it on my hand is fairly true to color. It looks very shimmery when blended out but that was a lot if product on the back of my hand. On the face it's sheer, a pretty bronze tint with some shimmer. Not off putting. I wore it today with the original Burberry foundation over top and it probably would work better blended in to foundation or as a highlighter. I have the liquid Chanel Soleil Tan which is slightly lighter and cooler toned on me. (I wear Vitalumiere in 20 or Lingerie de Peau in 3.)
I got tons of compliments today on the ES. I used colors from both palettes and patted Pale Gold in the centre of the lid.
