Spring Splurge: Burberry Bliss
The linen packaging of both the foundation and lipstick was divine. Elegant and simple but so Burberry. I ordered the Sheer Fluid Foundation in #2 Trench. Note: The swatches on Burberry.com are far from they're true color. I found swatches of the foundation on other blogs and gave it an educated guess...lucky for me I nailed it. The color is just right for my ultra fair skin. It has pink undertones and is, very sheer! I will probably purchase this again in the summer when I have more color, as I also think it is best suited for normal/oily skin. My skin is very dry in the winter and although this doesn't dry me out and is very gentle, the finish is more matte than I like with a very soft finish. There is absolutely no need to powder over this. Also, it does have quit a strong scent, like roses and baby powder, it goes away by the time I'm applying my mascara so it really doesn't bother me at all.
