Burberry Beauty set to hit the Toronto Holt Renfrew tomorrow!

There are three magical words that just make me so happy to hear - no, not "I love you" - I'm talking about "new makeup line" - just typing it makes me smile!  Iconic brand Burberry who has already added their plaid signature to just about everything you can think of, has finally made their foray into the cosmetic market - about time!  I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek at the line today and I had to be warned more then once to stop drooling on the products!

The line is divided into four components - Skin -  Sheer Foundation, Sheer Compact Foundation and Sheer Powder, Glow -  Light Glow - the blushers, Warm Glow - the bronzers and the Beauty Brush, Eyes - Sheer Eye Shadow, Effortless Mascara and Eye Definer and Lips - Lip Cover - lipsticks, Lip Glow - glosses and Lip Definer.

Sophia Perri, the National Makeup Artist for Burberry was on hand to give me a demo of the products and I now need her to come to my house every day and do my makeup - the look she gave me was so soft and pretty!  Which is probably a good description of the colours in the collection.  There is nothing bright or garish it is a soft, pretty and very wearable line.  And the packaging, well don't get me started you know how I feel about packaging!  Luxe is the word that springs to mind with wonderful attention to detail!  And of course the distinctive plaid is in evidence everywhere from the outside casing to even being embossed on the makeup itself - I told Sophia that I wouldn't be able to use it for fear of messing it up - which of course is bad news for me because I end up buying two of everything - one to use and one to look at!

I will be back to you soon with pictures of the whole line - I did take some pics today but my camera isn't cooperating and won't cough them up!  Until then, Toronto girls can get themselves over to the Holt Renfrew on Bloor Street starting tomorrow and check out the counter in person.  Vancouver girls will be able to find it at their Holts next week - for everyone else, well thank heavens for online shopping!
