Burberry just launched Matte Glow, a new generation of foundation that makes your skin look flawless and photo-ready without the heaviness and cakiness usually associated with most formulations promising similar results.

If that wasn’t enough of a selling point, the foundation is enriched with “life-proof” technology that makes it heat, humidity and pollution resistant. Its ultra-light weight and breathable formula is also enriched wih a high concentration of pigments that help to soften and blur imperfections like discolouration, pigmentation and pesky breakouts.

The Shades

The liquid foundation comes in 30 shades that ranges from fair to dark and covers warm, cool and neutral undertones, to ensure that the shades suit every skin tone, perfectly. Burberry Singapore however will carry 28 shades.

It Also Comes In A Compact

The range also comes as a pressed powder, encased in a beautiful compact which makes touch-ups on the go a breeze. The pressed foundation however is only available in six shades.

Finding Your Perfect Shade

For me personally, finding the right shade for my skin tone has always been a nightmare. But Burberry has the solution.

To start off, you need to identify your skin tone intensity, followed by your skin tone family (fair, light, medium, deep or dark) and finally your undertone (cool, neutral or warm).

People with a cool undertone usually have a rosy undertone and tend to burn easily in the sun. People with a neutral undertone on the other hand have more even toned skin and tend not to be too pink or golden. People with a warm undertone have more golden or olive toned skin and tend to tan easily and most Asians tend to have a more warm undertone .

If you are still perplexed, the staff at the Burberry counter will be able to advise you and help you select your perfect shade, like they did for me.

Before application
After application

Never having found the perfect foundation in the past, I was skeptical that I would find the right shade for my skin tone, but I did and I absolutely love the look and feel of the new Burberry Matte Glow.

When I want sheer perfection for daily wear, I simply mix a pump or two with my moisturiser. The texture is really amazing and absorbs perfectly into the skin. Would I recommend this product? most definitely yes!

You can find the new Burberry Matte Glow foundation at Sephora.
