A very Happy New Year! Hope all of you are doing great. So the festive season is over and the New Year has just begun with all new possibilities, In this new year, I gifted myself a lovely lipstick from Burberry and officially this is the most expensive one in my dresser. I am finally going to review it and help you decide if such super luxurious designer brand cosmetics are worth the money.
Explore velvet intensity with Lip Velvet Long Wear Lipstick. Burberry innovation brings a new finish for lips: a velvety matte radiance, inspired by the most opulent of English fabrics. Iconic pigments provide incredibly dense and luminous color, gel technology gives comfortable long-wear performance, while triglycerides and wild rose continuously hydrate. The result is effortlessly elegant, protective and breathable.
Tips: Apply Lip Velvet with fingertips for a natural stain of color or use with a Lip Definer Pencil for a more polished elegance.
$33 for 0.12 oz. / 3.5 gm (Nordstrom).
It is a creamy matte lipstick which glides on the lips providing them with hydration unlike the super dry and powdery mattes.
The packaging is to-die-for, it’s not bling but has ultra-sophistication oozing out of it with the iconic tartan pattern on the lipstick case which is made of metal with a magnetic closure and does not attract fingerprints – how luxe! The lipstick bullet has the same tartan pattern on it, I just love it!
My Experience with Burberry Rose Pink No.307 Lip Velvet Long Wear Lipstick:
I am a self-confessed matte lipstick lover and I own 4 MAC retro mattes and 7 matte lipsticks from NYX and other brands, so that might help you to understand what a matte lip lover I am 😀 I was browsing through the beauty store checking out the lovely products and swatching testers. I fell in love with the color and texture of the lipsticks from Burberry. The store people were generous enough to give me a deluxe sample of another product which I would be reviewing shortly.
After a lot of thought, I picked up this lipstick, it was so damn difficult to make the selection as all the shades were so awesome. I stayed away from the dark shades because I wanted a lipstick that I can wear on a day-to-day basis. This shade is a lovely dusty rose and it brightens the face without any dramatic makeup. As I have mentioned before, it is not at all drying for a matte lipstick. The texture is creamy and gives full coverage in a single swipe, but even after layering multiple times, it doesn’t flake or feather. The only con that I find is that it minimally transfers after application, but other than that, there are no cons.
The lipstick has no distinct smell which is great. The magnetic mechanism is super impressive. I would love to get more shades and I am mighty impressed!
