Burberry Beauty has a limited edition Iconic Nudes, which includes the Sheer Summer Glow Natural Highlighting Compact ($50). A combination of two bronzers, a light whisper pink and a pearly highlighter shade, this bronzer adds a soft layer of natural blush-bronzer to those with lighter skin tones.

In shade, the pearly texture of the powder can be seen:

Here are swatches both blended (on the left), and of the individual colors on the right:

Burberry’s standard line of bronzers includes a variety for a range of skin tones. This palette appears to be desgined for lighter skin tones–perhaps NC 35 and higher. The colors are so soft and delicate that it’s difficult to apply too much.

I applied the left (bronzer) side of the palette mixed, using a kabuki brush (the Edward Bess Luxury Face Brush) on the contour area of the cheek, and touching it on the forehead, bridge of nose and chin.  I used the hightlighter/blush (the right side) on the top of my cheek. I then used the highlighter color applied lightly just under my brows for a tiny highlight there.

The colors are very soft and natural, and should accommodate both warm and cool skin tones. This is absolutely gorgeous, lovingly made, and embellished with the iconic Burberry check. Absolutely amazing, versatile palette for a natural, glowing look.
