How are you doing today? Excited for Valentine’s day? Me too! Well, I know we are married, and have a little kid too, but romance and love are beyond age and even your marital status. I am lucky in the sense that my spouse thinks alike and always makes me feel like his dream girl even after 5 years of marital bliss. Mostly, he is in charge of giving surprises and planning for our date, but this time I am determined to surprise him on 14th Feb! The feeling of loving someone and being truly loved by someone makes you lively again. I know I am his wife but the idea of proposing to him makes me go nervous with those butterflies in stomach. This is so crazy man! Anyway, I have another gloss treat from Burberry Kisses for you today. So let’s read more about it.

My Experience with Burberry Kisses Rose Blush No. 89 Lip Gloss:
The gloss comes in usual transparent plastic tube packaging with a signature Burberry pattern cap with a sponge doe-foot applicator. Overall, I like its user friendly and travel friendly packaging.
The shade “Rose Blush No. 89” appeared a rosy brown shade to me at first but to my surprise, it comes way sheer rosy pink on my skin tone. Oh yes, it is a tricky shade for my skin tone as it makes me look a bit tanned. I could have still lived with the shade but the finish is not up to the mark as well. It comes up way sheer and bit streaky even with multiple swipes. I feel it can also highlight our lip flaws as it tends to sit in lip lines sometimes. This is the first time I am coming across a sheer disappointing shade from this brand; I dislike few other shades too but at least I have no complaints with their creamy finish.
It looks gorgeous, creamy rosy brown in swatches but it is so different on lips! However, I see that the gloss is so hydrating and creamy that I never experienced any other issues while wearing it on. Talking about staying power, it stays for 4-5 hours on my lips which seems so good considering it’s a sheer gloss. In fact I like its texture which nicely adheres to lips with a non-sticky, lightweight finish. It stays even with light snacks and tea/water breaks. Besides its streaky sheer finish, I found it decent enough to hydrate my lips so well if only it had perfect color pay off too.
I think that we can still sort out the sheer finish with the use of lip liner beneath this shade and this way it might help with the tricky color pay off as well. But I feel it is not worth taking all efforts at this price when we have pretty better products in the market.
Pros of Burberry Kisses Rose Blush No. 89 Lip Gloss:
• A pretty rosy pink gloss with a hydrating formula and non-sticky finish.
• It hydrates our lips for good hours without accentuating any further dryness,
• It stays for good 4-5 hours and manages to stay on lips even with small tea/water breaks.
• Pretty user friendly and travel friendly packing.
Cons of Burberry Kisses Rose Blush No. 89 Lip Gloss:
• The shade is quite misleading in the tube.
• The finish is way streaky and sheer on lips.
• It does seem sitting in lip lines.
• It might be tricky for pigmented lips.
IMBB Rating: 2.5/5
Would I Recommend Burberry Kisses Rose Blush No. 89 Lip Gloss?
I still use it over a lip liner and make it work somehow. Sadly, this shade will be a skip for me and will recommend you all to give it a skip as well.
