Hope all of you are enjoying winters with delicious lohri, pongal and sankranti delicacies. I had to prepare a fresh batch of snacks for my friends as my naughty toddler finished all of them. Anyway today I am here to talk about another lip product from Burberry which is becoming my favorite brand for lip products especially. I bought few more shade from the Kisses Gloss range and one of them is “Bright Rose”, a shimmer free, juicy bright coral pink gloss which is our guest of honor today! So let’s read more about it!

A moisturizing, lightweight, non-sticky gloss that delivers a buildable wet shine lip look.

My Experience with Burberry Kisses Gloss Bright Rose No. 61:
The gloss comes in traditional Burberry gloss packaging with a patterned cap. It does have a subtle fragrance which is way mild to bother even sensitive noses. Overall, it is quite user friendly and travel-friendly packaging.
The shade “Bright Rose” is a bright coral pink juicy shimmer free gloss, pretty much to my liking. However, it comes up way sheer with subtle translucency on lips which might be a turn off for gals seeking intense color pay off while gals looking for a subtle coral pigmentation would love it. Personally I would have also loved a bit more color intensity though I am fine with its sheer pigmentation as I can wear it on no makeup or subtle makeup days! It does add color to our lips even if it is bit on sheer side but it is not a transparent gloss completely.
Considering its sheer coverage and translucent sheen, I think it is not suitable for beauties with pigmented lips unless they wear it over lip liner or lip color. I don’t think multiple layering would help with coverage in this shade though it gives pretty wet shine finish which looks good overall.
The texture of these glosses is really perfect, neither thick nor liquid just apt to adhere to lips for decent hours depending upon person to person and shade respectively. Like this shade wears for decent 4-5 hours with its juicy sheer finish on lips keeping my lips moist even after fading off lips unlike few shades which have a slightly better staying power. The gloss wears comfortably on my normal dry lips without setting on dry patches and/or lip lines; hence, I find it perfect for even dry, parched lips as well. In fact it gives a nice fuller lips effect overall which might be perfect for thin lips. It has even color proportion which gives subtle juicy even finish to lips keeping them soft supple for several hours.
It highly transfers to cups and glasses throughout meal time thereby fading within 4-5 hours with no distinct sheen, just soft supple lips. It won’t accentuate or highlight your lip flaws other than being on sheer side. I would definitely recommend it to gals who love subtle glosses while beauties with pigmented lips and/or seeking high pigmentation must skip it or wear it over lip colors/lip liners.
Pros of Burberry Kisses Gloss Bright Rose No. 61:
• A shimmer free, juicy, lightweight bright coral pink lip gloss.
• It won’t accentuate or aggravate dry lip issues further.
• It certainly gives fuller, plumped up lip effect.
• It gives a high glossy shine to lips.
• It is not formulated with parabens, phthalates and sulfates.
• Quite user friendly and travel friendly packaging.
Cons of Burberry Kisses Gloss Bright Rose No. 61:
• The shade is on the sheer side, hence tricky for pigmented lips.
• It comes off completely after one heavy meal.
• It does not provide intense color pay off.
IMBB Rating: 4/5
Would I Repurchase Burberry Kisses Gloss Bright Rose No. 61?
We do get similar coverage and properties in many lower priced brands and hence it might not work for everyone. However comparing its soft, hydrating formula which never irritates my dry and even parched lips, I feel I will get it again no matter how pricey it is.
