Burberry Beauty Global Launch

When you think of Burberry, lipstick, eye shadow and mascara aren’t the first things that come to mind. For me it’s the classic trench, their signature checkered bags and my cashmere earmuffs. However, Burberry has now joined forces with luxury heavy hitters like Chanel and Dior, who already possess a solid spot in the beauty market.

July 13th was the official exclusive Burberry Beauty launch at Holt Renfrew, hosted by Natalie Penno, Holt’s Vice President of Cosmetics and Beauty Services, along with Clarins’ Patricia Abergel, the North American Vice President, and Patricia Bensimon, National Make-up Artist and Trainer. It’s always refreshing to see these power personalities traveling all over to meet with clients and fashion enthusiasts in person; it allows us to gain a deeper perspective into the industry from a direct source.

Vancouver’s fashionistas, including media personalities, bloggers, stylists and makeup/hair artists admired the beautiful new Burberry counter that resembled an opulent interior piece in a swanky London flat. Then again, I am not surprised. Burberry thrives on its clean chicness that is always executed with the perfect detail. I was very curious to try some of the makeup and see if the price tag matched the quality. Did it ever!

Their lipstick felt like pure silk on my lips. I especially loved the sepia shade, very Brigitte Bardot! The blush was subtle and very natural, blending ideally with my skin tone. And the shades of foundations really seemed to offer an option for everyone. I tend to see makeup as very disposable, but the pieces in this collection felt more like beautiful accessories in my makeup bag than just something I would misplace and forget about in a week.

Holt Renfrew is the exclusive Canadian retailer of Burberry Beauty, with two counters at their Vancouver and Bloor Street locations only.
