Hope all of you are doing great! Today I am here to introduce my brand new Burberry purchase with you all, which belongs to one of the permanent editions in their spring 2016 collection, the “Full Kisses”. I own many lip products from Burberry and find them pretty decent for the price & quality. And now, these newly launched lipsticks proved to be love at first sight.
Burberry launched these shiny pens in some 14 bold & luminous shades and, believe me, it is a real task to select a handful of colors from these shades; I picked up 3 of them from different color family: Oxblood #549, Peony Rose #513 and Rosehip #537. I so love these bold and luminous shades on my lips. So let’s read more about Burberry # 549 Oxblood Full Kisses!

Designed to hug every contour of the lip, the unique flat-top bullet follows every curve as it draws, effortlessly defining, shaping and enhancing from corner to corner. Mistake-proof and ideal for on-the-go application, the formula coats lips in one vibrant stroke with a rich veil of bold, luminous colour lasting up to eight hours. Infused with active ingredients, the lip-contouring formula saturates lips with hydration, each shade delivering a smooth, intense and creamy finish.

My Experience with Burberry Oxblood No. 549 Full Kisses:
The lipstick comes in a shiny metallic gray retractable pen packaging with a patterned cap. It does not have any significant fragrance, much to our liking. I simply love these cute pens that make the range stand out. But, it is real hard to judge the shade inside as all the shiny metallic pens are identical. The packaging, sure, can confuse you if you own more than one shade from this range!
My shade “Oxblood” is a beautiful, bold and luminous oxblood red shade with no shimmers, which might scare you at first. Considering my pale skin tone, even I felt a mini heartache when I first received it. But, it complements well with a full face of makeup and neutral eyes. Not to forget, its light-weight finish makes it wearable on my pale skin tone. The subtle tones still scream for attention in the most graceful way, I must say. I am sure it is going to be a heartthrob of many dusky and medium skin toned Indian beauties.
In fact, I would love to sport it for evening parties or for auditions. Talking about its formula, it is really amazing I think. I haven’t come across such perfection so far. I mean, it comes up as a bold and pigmented lipstick on my lips yet it does not feel heavy or creamy at all. It maintains that subtle translucency with a luminous and juicy finish on my lips, which I love to the core. Oh yes, it has a nice, lightweight, gel-like texture which slips effortlessly on my lips, delivering one stroke high shine color. The color soon settles down to even toned, saturated oxblood red color.
It maintains that lightweight translucent pigmentation and a wet juicy shine all through the day while making my lips look subtle and moist. I find it suitable for every beauty, including beauties with pigmented lips as well as with dry lips; just that, they might need a good scrubbing and hydrating session. I say so because even I see that the formula slightly clings on to the dry patches.
Moreover, the wet juicy texture makes my lips appear fuller and hydrated all day long as I feel soft and slippery lips throughout the wear time and even after removing it. I didn’t find it sitting in the lip lines or feathering around though it will transfer heavily, being a moisturizing and juicy formula. I am also impressed to notice that it does not easily melt, like the usual creamy versions. It also does not feel to be tugging my lips. It has a perfect texture and glossy feel.
And, it stays on & on for good 6-7 hours on my lips with transferring issues and mild fading. But, the luminous and glossy finish stays intact for several hours and usually fades after one heavy meal. I feel the range certainly fulfills all the claims and Burberry has nailed the packaging too. I would love to try more.
