Burberry’s Holiday Collection


One of the luxe beauty brands that is exciting me most these days is Burberry Beauty. I had the opportunity to interview Wendy Rowe, the UK celeb makeup artist that works with Christopher Bailey creating each new collection. She talked about “effortless elegance”. That is how Bailey sees Burberry Beauty. So you’ll notice that each limited edition includes a nude colour story and one with more dramatic colour like Military Red or Oxblood. The quality of the formulas is very good and the packaging modern and sleek. Here’s the story behind the holiday collection.

Burberry Fall/Winter fashion look

“ I describe the Burberry beauty look as effortless elegance. Every product should be quick and easy to apply.” – Burberry Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey


Brand: Burberry Beauty

City: London

Collection: Burberry Festive Beauty Collection

Creator: Wendy Rowe, Burberry Makeup Artistic Consultant

Theme: Effortless Elegance. Rowe has taken the streamlined Burberry beauty look and updated it for the holidays thanks to gold accents. Lips are dressed in confident red or soft nude. The complexion is glowing and radiant. Eyes are adorned with gold or champagne. It’s modern and youthful in its attitude.

Collector Palette: This limited edition eye palette enhances eyes with a golden, illuminated look. You’ll find a luminising base to highlight, two buildable colours and an intense liner to define eyes

A Golden Glow: These limited edition illuminating powders only appear this time of year and this one is beautifully done. It’s a pressed powder infused with the notes of My Burberry Eau de Parfum. Use the brush provided to highlight cheekbones, shoulders and décolletage. What I love is this golden powder works on almost every skin tone. It’s truly universal beauty.

Gold Touch: This multi-use, pearlescent cream highlighter adds a delicate golden glow to eyes, lips and cheeks.

Focus lips: Keep the complexion neutral and play up your lips in either Parade Red or Gold Shimmer. Golden gloss applied over red lipstick creates a beautiful coral effect with dimension. It’s stunning!

    The collection is gorgeous and I rate it an 8 out of 10.
    Burberry is such a timeless classic brand with innovative colours, textures and packaging while maintaining their core values.
    I have only tried the fragrance therefore I appreciate your in-depth analysis of the cosmetics.
    The gold looks amazing and the lipsticks look vibrant and lush.
    A lovely giveaway that any woman would be delighted to receive.

    It’s Burberry. It’s gold. It has glitter. I I love it. My favorite part is the textured lipsticks and powders. I do think the cases are a little understated for such a glam look. 9/10.

    I don’t have any of these lovely items. I have went with my daughter into the Burberry in Chicago, and she has purchased a couple of these items, so I have seen them. I would definitely give this collection a 10! @LoriOdijk

    This collection is 10/10! These are the types of shades I’m into right now as a new mom of two…very understated luxe. The Burberry Kisses in Parade Red is nice (and quick fix!) for pop of colour and the gold shimmer dust is like pixie dust…magically lifts up your mood after months of sleepless nights! @portiacor

    What a great holiday collection! I love that Burberry is a line I can trust to give me the neutrals I want for day and fun and edgy products to amp up my look for night. The shadow palette is something I can see myself using daily. How fun would it be with that Shimmer Dust in gold? The My Burberry Eau de Parfume Festive Edition is just plain festive- like it says!
