Lipsticks are a small obsession of mine, so excuse me if I post a lot of lipstick reviews. I just love lip products! But I know that a lot of you share this obsession, so today on the menu: 4 Burberry lippies!
The packaging is exactly like the other Burberry products: the silver/grey case with the Burberry check and the beige box. But even the lipsticks have a check print, and I love details like this. They close magnetically, always handy in a lipstick.
There are two different types of lipsticks: Burberry Kisses and Burberry Kisses Sheer. Burberry Kisses are the bigger lipsticks, they actually are quite big, they don't fit in any of my holders - they are even bigger than Tom Ford! (About a millimeter of two.) Burberry Kisses is an hydrating lip color with a satin finish. Burberry Kisses Sheer has a smaller casing and has a more sheer, glossy finish. It doesn't have the checkered print on the bullet.
The colors that I have are:
No.49 Light Crimson: a bright pink color.
No.65 Coral Pink: a coral peachy hue.
No.97 Oxblood: a dark, wine tone.
Burberry Kisses Sheer:
No.297 Midnight Plum: looks very similar to Oxblood, also a wine color.
The colors are all very buildable, if you swipe it just once on the lips it would look like a stain or gloss, but if you layer it (swiping three times for example) it looks pretty pigmented. Same goes for the sheer lipstick, and it's actually much more pigmented than I thought it would be!
The formula of the Burberry Kisses is fragrance-free and hydrating, so that's something I like. It's good to switch to some lighter and moisturizing lipsticks sometimes, I wear dry mattes too often. The lipstick feels smooth and soft on the lips and is easy to apply.
The Burberry Kisses Sheer has a completely different texture, it's almost gel-like and much more glossy than the regular Kisses. Yet it doesn't feel sticky. This one also applies easy and smooth, maybe even smoother than the Kisses because of the gel-like formula.
Burberry - Kisses in No.49 Light Crimson, No.65 Coral Pink and No.97 Oxblood (€29)
Burberry - Kisses Sheer in No.297 Midnight Plum (€29)
The lipsticks are much cheaper than other high-end lipsticks and they are really good. The formula is very pleasant, the pigmentation buildable and there is a big color range. (About 26 colors.) Oxblood and Midnight Plum are obviously my favorite colors, but the brighter colors are amazing for warmer days.
Which color is your favorite?
