Review: Burberry Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base in Nude Radiance
On my ongoing Burberry binge, I decided to try their primer; Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base in 01 Nude Radiance. This comes in two shades and this is the lighter, cooler one. I like the idea of being luminous. My idea of luminous is a lit from within, healthy, possibly a bit dewy skin. What I do not envision is looking like a disco ball. See swatches below - one blended and one not. The sparkle with this stuff is out of control. I applied it to my face and blanched - I thought, ok, don't panic, maybe with foundation on top it'll just peek through enough to be luminous but toned down. Nope. Foundation just covers it up (thankfully) but now I just can't see the point. Big fat thumbs down on this one--it is more like a highlighter than a primer.
