Trend Talk: Burberry Beauty Giveaway!

Tina Craig at Burberry Beauty/InStyle Event

I had so much fun tweeting and co-hosting the Burberry Trend Talk event with InStyle Magazine! The ultimate highlight was meeting the InStyle Style Ambassador Tai Beauchamp. Not only is she gorgeous (and TALL!), but she was so much fun to dish beauty with. And I loved meeting all of the Beauty Snobs who attended the event. If you haven’t tried Burberry Beauty, you are seriously missing out. It is hands-down one of the best beauty lines on the market. The Sheer Luminous Concealer ($40) has a brush applicator that makes it so easy to blend. It’s creamy without being heavy, and the full coverage hides all of last night’s sins! The Effortless Mascara ($28) is great for layering because it doesn’t dry or clump! My favorite has to be the Lip Mist ($30), though. It’s like a lipstick, gloss, and balm all in one! For girls who want a hint of color and shine, the Mist will be their best friend. Find all of Burberry Beauty’s products at Nordstrom.

We are giving away a Burberry Beauty basket with a $100 Nordstrom gift card! To win, tell us what your favorite iconic British fashion item is (mine is the Burberry Trench, natch!). Please leave your choice in the comments section below. We will select the winner next Friday October 26th at 5 p.m. EST.

Burberry Beauty Lipstick, Concealer, Mascara

    Oh my gosh yes, the trench! I have a Burberry bucket hat but I’d die (almost) for a trench!

  63. Cheryl Engelmeyer on said:

    This one isn’t necessarily a fashion item, but when I was living in London, all the ladies loved to carry their oyster cards (used to ride the tube)in designer card holders. Mine is from Mulberry and it’s a cheerful poppy color. QUINTESSENTIALLY BRITISH for the London traveler! <3

    I love the Burberry Plaid and have seen it on the lining of raincoats, umbrellas, and shirts. Even the dogs can have outfits showing off this famous plaid. I have a vintage Burberry skirt which is long and has a big decorative pin to keep the wrap closed. I also have a scarf with the plaid and can wear to make my outfit preppy.

  107. The classic Burberry Trench!

  108. What makes British fashion so wonderful is how timeless and enduring it is. But the one accessory that will truly never go out of style? A gorgeous English boy on your arm, keeping you both dry in the London rain with a classic old-fashioned black umbrella.
