MAKEUP | Burberry Spring/Summer 2016 Runway Palette in No.2 Nude Gold

It's already the end of August and as much as I want to keep languishing in the slowness of summer, I am realizing that I have a whackload of products for summer that I still need to discuss! So, Lord knows I don't need anymore highlighters as it is always the one thing that I tend to forget in my everyday makeup application process, but there is something about looking outside, seeing sunshine and then wanting to "self-illuminate"!

I had a really hard time even swatching this beauty of a highlighter, but Burberry has once again given a whole new meaning to the words "limited edition"! The Spring/Summer 2016 Runway Palette in No.2 Nude Gold* ($72.00 CDN) is truly a thing of total beauty with its intricate lace design being inspired by the latest in women's fashion. This highlighter is both lightweight and buildable and makes skin appear lit from within.

I didn't even review/swatch last year's Runway Palette because it was so goddamn beautiful that I didn't want to disturb it. Fortunately, I have run my fingers and brush over this highlighter numerous times and the lace design is still happily there.

I barely have to press to pick up any colour and though there is also a No.1 White version, the Nude Gold can be layered to look subtly golden or blended for just the appearance of a healthy glow. The formula is far from powdery and though I wouldn't say it's buttery, it still feels like something luxurious.

Final verdict: I think every Burberry item is worth picking up because it is one of the few brands where I find it hard to be objective due to all the prettiness. I have yet to be let down by a single one of their products. If you love collecting LE items, the Burberry Runway Palettes are the definition of limited edition. If the lace pattern disappeared in one swipe, then maybe I would have something negative to say, but I have used it multiple times now and I have yet to see any pattern diminish!


The Spring/Summer Runway 2016 Palette is available at Sephora online and Burberry counters while supplies last.
