Burberry Light Glow Natural Blush in Tangerine ($42/ No. 6) is a soft peach with a touch of brown.  As with Burberry’s other blushes, it’s packed in a gorgeous, heavy metal compact with the luxury brand’s iconic plaid etching.


Despite the name “tangerine” which suggests a bright orange, Burberry Tangerine gives a soft peach-nude glow.  Like many Burberry items, it plays well as a sophisticated color.  Here it is on Liz:

 You can see how soft it is compared to Shu Uemura Peach 47, a color that I’ve long considered to be a classic peach tone.

Burberry Tangerine is much softer and more brown than the comparatively orange Shu Uemura Apricot, and far less pink and bright that Chanel Tweed Corail (reviewed here).  As with many Burberry Light Glow blushes, Tangerine gives a beautiful, soft wash of color.  You can see how it was incorporated in a Burberry makeover at this post.

Above, Liz is wearing:

  • Chanel Vitalumiere liquid foundation in 20 Claire/Cameo
  • Caron powder in Translucent
  • Burberry Beauty Tangerine blush
  • Chanel Rouge Extrait de Gloss in Exces
  • Hourglass Film Noir Mascara
  • Prestige Total Intensity liner in black (lower lash line)
Hourglass Film Noir was provided for review and consideration to Cafe Makeup without charge.

  1. wow, she wears a face powder?! liz’ complexion looks SO nice! i’ll have to check those Caron powders for sure!

  2. Liz looks lovely! This is a surprising blush – I’d have expected it to be more orangey, but as you noted, it’s Burberry. 🙂

  3. I am adding this to my growing Burberry list. Liz looks gorgeous!!! Hello Model! The blush isn’t what you think of when you hear Tangerine, that’s for sure. It is so sophisticated. I don’t have any of your comparison blushes, so that means I can get this, right?

  4. I love everything Burberry. Their beauty line is very exciting, I’m enjoying all the eyeshadows, blushes and lipsticks that you’ve reviewed and some more… I’ve got their eye brushes this early spring and recently realized that I’m reaching for them more often than for my MAC, BB, LM, Trish, CHANEL, Chantecaille and even Hakuhodo brushes! Amy, I remember your review of Burberry face brushes, and I keep asking about them at my local Nordstrom but the only face brush they’ve heard about is Kabuki brush. Where can I find those wonderful face brushes from your post? Thank you for introducing me to this fine cosmetics line.
