For the love of orange. Orange Poppy is part and parcel of Burberry Beauty Summer Showers Collection. The other two being Pink Peony and Pink Azalea. Inspired by the English sunset and rainfall during summertime, this collection features new lip and cheek formula and a lacquer to boot.

For the love of orange. Second to purple, I’m beginning to embrace orange as the new red. That’s the only legit reason why I settled for Orange Poppy, which if you’re feeling the whole matchy-matchy vibe, is composed of a fancy nail polish, fancier lip balm, and fanciest cheek color. Intrigued? scroll  down more for photos and deets.

Let’s start with the fancy lacquer. I flat out admit that I’m not good at painting my nails, it’s not my forte. But see I like my nails to look pretty and chip-free for several days if need be. Orange Poppy No.221 Nail Polish ($21) is orange red; it’s opaque in one coat, creamy, streak-free, and had decent wearability of about four days. I call it fancy because while the color isn’t entirely unique, how can you not love the signature plaid chrome bottle. If you’re a sucker for packaging just like moi, you can empathize with my trivial fascination.

Let’s tackle the fancier lip balm, Orange Poppy No.2 ($28). It’s sheer orange with balm-like feel and texture. It’s hydrating and stains the lips quite a bit. Wear time is four hours, give or take, sans meal. I say fancier because it’s a new formula by Burberry Beauty. It has rosehip, tea and lavender extracts with some oils for moisturization. The packaging is also plaid chrome with signature magnetic closure. If you’re branching to bolder lip colors this summer without the shock factor, wearing tinted balm is a good way to start your fancy journey. I know I said fancy again so let me reword it then, frilly that is!

Finally, let’s meet the fanciest from this collection, the Fresh Glow Blush ($38). Apart from being a new formula, this has a cooling sensation which lasts for about sixty seconds or so. It’s the fanciest because I don’t own anything like it. It’s sheer, translucent, and barely noticeable as you can see from the swatch below. The application is nothing scientific; you apply it straight from the tube onto the cheeks and then blend either with fingertips or brush. Since it’s lightly tinted, I had to reapply and blend a few times to make it more evident on my medium skin tone (over foundation, sealed with setting powder). Since it’s really sheer, I didn’t even pay attention to the wear time, it’s negligible as I would call it. So yeah, the schmancy fancy starts and ends with the cooling thingimajig.

Here’s Fresh Glow Blush…I could’ve applied more so the camera can capture the very sheer color but this is my #FOTD for work. I don’t want to scare my patients with orange cheeks por favor, haha!

    You look stunning, girl! This collection is perfect for you!

    That orange is a nice but very subtle shot of color. I love it! How do you apply gel blushes like that? I always use my fingers but I never feel like it's effective enough.

    • July 4, 2014 / 7:35 am

      Good question! I use either fingertips or brush. Sometimes both when I'm not satisfied

  3. July 3, 2014 / 2:45 pm

    BEAUTIFUL! I really love those colors!

  4. July 3, 2014 / 3:37 pm

    This collection is SUPER fancy! I think I'd want to pick up the lippie, just because!

    I love the orangey/coral shades. So pretty! I bought a coral lipstick yesterday and I love it!

  9. July 3, 2014 / 7:30 pm

    Nail polish that comes in so stylish packaging and is opaque in 1 coat, creamy, streak-free and you can wear it 4 days without any problems? Yes please! 🙂

    • July 4, 2014 / 7:40 am

      yes it's pretty impressive, considering that I constantly wash my hands throughout the day in between patins, not to forget a follow-through sanitizing!

  10. July 3, 2014 / 7:34 pm

    I love that color on your lips! Gorgeous

  11. July 3, 2014 / 9:25 pm

    I always get so excited when I look at high end makeup then look at the prices and think "…yeah, I don't need it that bad!" But that polish looks good and the staying power sounds awesome… May have to make a splurge purchase!

    • July 4, 2014 / 8:04 am

      Let me know how you like the quality. Thanks for stopping by!

  12. July 3, 2014 / 9:36 pm

    OOOh Hot stuff!
    I just wish the blush was more pigmented. 🙁

  13. July 3, 2014 / 10:32 pm

    Sheer under a stain can be super faaaancy too 🙂

  14. July 4, 2014 / 4:30 am

    Beautiful and they look like wearable colors for a wide range of skin tones

  15. July 4, 2014 / 5:12 am

    Absolutely fabulous picks! I especially like the cheek color, it's so dewy and looks totally natural.

  16. July 4, 2014 / 4:31 pm

    The price is plenty "fancy" too bad about the cheek product. I like the idea of a cooling product for the summer.! BTW orange IS def one of your colors!

  17. July 4, 2014 / 6:17 pm

    WANT WANT WANT and this looks fab on you!

  18. July 4, 2014 / 6:44 pm

    The packaging is just gorgeous! I love the way the lip balm looks 🙂

  19. July 5, 2014 / 9:50 pm

    those colors look beautiful on you – gorgeous. I love Burberry packaging – I got a few samples in my glossybox or birchbox last year and love it.
