Burberry Blossom 05 Light Glow Blush

Blossom 05 is not a new blush in Burberry Beauty's lineup. It was one of the original colored released and is part of the permanent collection, which is a very good thing since the color is gorgeous and versatile. I picked it up when I needed a warmer blush than my usual fare- something borderline coral but not quite, without an obvious orange cast. The mission was more difficult than one would think, probably because of my olive green skin tone more than any product's fault. This Burberry blush fit the bill with the added bonus of its very fine texture, subtle glowing finish and overall quality.

The best way I can describe Blossom (#05) is as a pink peach. Sabrina of the Beauty Look Book has great comparison photos of three Burberry blushes and you can see that next to Russet, Blossom is lighter and brighter. It's one of the most wearable warm cheek colors I've ever come across and as I use it lightly (my swatch is quite heavy), I can blend it into a natural healthy glow to go with certain makeup looks.

The packaging of Burberry products is legendary: a heavy compact embossed with the famous pattern, a black velvet protective pouch and even the outer box looks and feels luxurious. The line has been growing and offering more shades with every season and is definitely a favorite.

Bottom Line: hits the sweet spot.

Burberry Light Glow blushes ($42) are available from Nordstrom, online and in select locations. Soon the line will also be available at Saks NYC flagship store.


  1. Ahh, this was my first Burberry blush and it is still wonderful to me! It gives just the perfect flushy color on my light yellow toned skin. The price tag is worth it.

  2. oh pretty! its on my list already! ;)

  3. I only own Peony but I can't wait to buy more! Your review was spot-on, as usual <3

  4. I have Burberry Blossom brush too & it's a pinky coral shade. It's highly pigmented and such a lovely color that compliments my warm complexion very well. <3 =)

    For reference, I'm a Mac NC30/35.
