Spotlight: Burberry Beauty Lip Velvet Long Wear Lipstick Swatches


Dec19
Hello :)

The Burbery Beauty Lip Velvet Long Wear Lipsticks (SGD$43) have been out for a while but I never really had the chance to take a good look at them. While at the recent Burberry Beauty Vintage Gold event, I managed to swatch them all and have picked a favourite :)





I know that No.301 Pink Apricot exists but it doesn't seem to be in the display - it might be sold out (I forgot to ask; there are 2 testers of No.303 instead). 

The packaging is very very sleek - a deep grey (Jet Grey perhaps?) in a matte finish, embossed with the iconic Burberry check. This sets it apart from the Lip Cover and Lip Mist range which both feature a shiny casing.




The lipstick bullet itself also features the iconic check. There's something very alluring about the finish of the lipstick bullet itself - very polished, luxe and really does make you think of fabric.

Here are the swatches of all 11 colours in the display:








My favourite shades of this lot would be No. 304 Redwood, No.307 Rose Pink and No.310 Military Red. No.304 looks like a great brown-pink shade that I really enjoy wearing - this kind of shades tend to go welll with practically anything. No.307 is a great deep rose that is very feminine while any self-respecting red lipstick lover will definitely want to own No. 310 Military Red - bold, sophisticated and very alluring.

I love how these swatch and apply - very smooth, plush and almost weightless. I have naturally dry parched lips so with long-wearing lipsticks like these, I must soak my lips in lip balm before application.
