Because I guess I'm scared of red at the moment, I've ventured down the darker, burgundy route to find 'my perfect colour'.
These Burberry lip velvet lipsticks are lovely, the actual lipstick is embossed with the signature Burberry tartan which is such a nice touch.

No. 311 Bright Poppy.
I haven't worn the Bright Poppy yet, but I'm so in love with Hawthorn Berry I just can't bring myself to cheat. On the lip it looks a lot deeper than the swatch, it's quite burgundy but has an orange undertone, it just seems to work well with my skin. (I'd say I'm fair/medium in skin tone). These lipsticks are highly pigmented, yet they are pretty versatile. You can slather on both top and bottom lips for a rich, dark colour, or just dab a bit on the bottom lip and smooch your lips together for a much subtler look - perfect for everyday wear.
They are quite moisturising, but they are meant to be a matte finish, so they don't feel shiny or slippery at all, and there's no chance all your hair will stick to your mouth with the slightest gust of wind. Don't you just hate when that happens?! I think they feel slightly dry on the lip, so I like to sweep on a bit of balm after, but that's up to you.
These are probably the most expensive lip products I've ever owned, so as you can imagine, they're still in the boxes, and I must be careful with them at all times.
The packaging is gorgeous too, if that's not a weird thing to say? The actual case is magnetic, so it snaps back on the right way round to keep it beaut at all times. Lovely.
Have you tried any of the Burberry lip velvets? Do you like them?
Happy Monday everyone!
