Burberry Lip Cover

Sunday, 10 March 2013

Please excuse the dark circles and messy hair... Unfortunately, I have no excuse! I actually received this mini sized Burberry Lip Cover lipstick in a Glossybox months ago. I've long since unsubscribed but I thought I'd share this little gem of a lipstick with you. This is possibly the cutest little lip product I've ever seen, it's like a baby lipstick. The full size will undoubtedly be far less adorable, but I can safely say that the quality will be just as amazing. Rosewood No 04 is definitely not a shade I would normally go for. I tend to stick to my corals and pinks, rarely venturing to the dark side. It's probably more of an Autumn/Winter lip shade, for those of you who like to rotate your makeup with the seasons. Since this is a sheer cover lipstick, it's not as daunting to wear as I first expected. It seems to be a mauve red in the bullet, but translates on my lips as a brown-based red. I call this my 'grown-up' lipstick - the shade I wear when I want people to take me seriously.

Wear time isn't great, but that's to be expected with a sheer lipstick. It does fade evenly though and avoids the dreaded outer ring of lipstick on the lips. It feels hydrating and doesn't dry my lips out - always a positive. Burberry is a brand which I'd never have even considered for make-up before I was introduced to this lipstick, but I may just have to investigate because I'm thoroughly impressed with this little gem.
