We try a LOT of products here at My Beauty Matches and one of our favourite parts of each month is when we pick our brand of the month, and focus upon a specific brand to find out what they are good (or great at). Each week we delve into their product selection. We do rigorous tried and tested on a whole host of their best sellers, new launches classic beauty products so we can let you know what really deserves a space in your makeup bag. Saving you the time, effort and potential money from buying a product that's not right for you, or just doesn't live up to the expectations (or price tag).This month we are focusing upon the icon British brand Burberry, and their gorgeous Burberry Makeup collection (sadly not testing the handbags). We only focus upon a brand that’s worth the hype each month, and with a few solid years since their original launch in 2010 it’s definitely time a Burberry Makeup review was placed in the spotlight.

Whilst already smitten before we even try the makeup, we have managed the “hardship” of trialing their range and picking our favorites from our tried and tested Burberry Makeup review. Read on for our 5 Burberry Makeup Must Haves: the products that we simply can’t live without.

1) Burberry Glow Fluid Base, Golden Radiance £34.00 This water infused primer feels imperceptible on your skin, no caking or visible lines, just an instant shot of hydration, whilst the golden shade adds warmth. Added to which the intense light reflecting pearls blur minor perfections and add a serious dose of what I’d call super healthy glow to your skin. It can be layered under foundation as a primer or used on its own to highlight. A fab multi purpose makeup product I won’t be without this summer.

2) Burberry Fresh Glow Luminous Highlighting Pen in Nude Radiance £25.00 This product has changed my life. The slim pen is PERFECT, we repeat perfect for adding a little glow on the go. The Fresh Glow pen is the latest product to launch as used by the pros backstage at Burberry by Wendy Rowe, Burberry Artistic Consultant. The suits all shade really does flatter every skintone. The pen makes applying highlighter flawless and even more precise, whilst the doamed nib and creamy formula glide smoothly, with not a hint of dragging or sticking. Pop it in your handbag to perk up your face at work mid afternoon. Perfect for glow lovers! Nitya, Beauty Writer

3) Burberry Velvet Foundation £35.00 This ingenious formula, not only matches my skin tone perfectly (beige 26 if you’re interested) but it also manages to be so light that you can barely feel it, yes it still delivers a great amount of coverage and evens out skin tone. The matte feel mates skin look velvety with a golden glow, and SPF 20 protection. This is the perfect combo for summer days! Unlike some foundations it doesn’t create a mask like finish, it makes your skin look real, but so much better! Rachael, Beauty Editor

4) Burberry Effortless Eyebrow Definer £22.50 (similar here) Eyebrows are here to stay, so we may as well make the most of them. Which is so easy with this brow beauty. The slanted nib makes filling in sparse brows a doddle, whilst the cream to powder formula looks incredibly natural whilst boosting brows to proportions you may have thought were long gone. I didn't manage to make a brow appointment pre- party recently, but my brows still managed to look gorgeously groomed with just a few strokes of this and a swipe of the brush to get the shape I’d always dreamed of. Nidhima, Founder.
