My take on this shade: Trench 04 . I am Skin type 3 (combination oily)

Luminous and like a mousse! That's how it all to me. That rhymes somehow eh? haha! The moment I swept this on my face, 3 worsd outta my mouth..."Oh. My. God" 

Burberry Asia's Intl MUA Celestine Sng taught me how to use this well and with that it's now my holy grail liquid foundation. It blends easily into a smooth and even finish and on top of that, gives a nice luminous look. For reference, I am NC20-25 and Trench No. 04 is just my perfect shade. It did not oxidise on me too...clap clap clap!

This has a mousse like cream texture, and it does not feel heavy on the skin and surprisingly feel light weight. This foundation would work best with buffer brushes like MAC109 or the  Sigma F80. Using the right tool, the foundation would feel like your second skin. For me? It's still my trusty fingers that works most of the time.

Should I still mention how brilliant and stunning the packaging is? The unusually long cap with the Burberry check has a good heft to it and shuts with a satisfying click...just like opening up a can of soda amidst the daytime's raging heat.

The pump is user-friendly and locks,  beautiful and functional, isn't that awesomesaucy? Though some might find it heavy, to me it's just loaded with the right weight to it. Without the lid, the bottle is totally light.

Same as the pressed powder, I like the baby powder scent. This scent still lingers even after a few hours of wear, so if you're not one who likes scented foundations, skip this.

Provides a light to medium coverage which is buildable. However do not expect it to give you full coverage as it is more focused on targeting that skin luminosity finish.

Dewy and a satin matte mix...with that luminous glow!

Lasting power 
This foundation can last for more than 8 hours on me. Match it with a good oil controlling primer and extend it's performance to an additional of 2-3 hours or so.

Product overall

With this, there is no need to put a primer, the finish it gives me is just adorably nice, truly lightweight on my skin as well. This one I use and set with my Burberry Sheer Pressed Powder . It’s also buildable, and generously affords good coverage despite being described as sheer. It does exactly what a foundation should. It also has a pleasant luminous finish which catches the light nicely. It's as if I have used an illuminating primer as a base. I love how it gives my skin a mix of dewy finish, makes me look I am so alive.

Re-purchase? Hell  Yes.
