When it comes to stunning color, the new Lip Velvets by Burberry steal the show! Available in 14 scintillating shades and packaged in chic frosted tubes, these pigments are bold, trendy and comfortable.
I chose three shades that show-off my style – glamorous, edgy and vibrant. The lush formula glides on effortlessly and coats lips in layers of rich, highly saturated color with a beautiful matte-cream finish. Nourishing oils keep lips supple, smooth and hydrated while the formula stays moist to prevent tightness and flaking.
These gorgeous shades apply full-coverage and dramatically intense without skipping and they accentuate your pout for hours! Magenta is a red-based pin-up pink that is bright, classic and flattering. Black Cherry is deep and vampy so it makes a statement on its own or contrasted with soft eye shadow. Bright Plum is my favorite shade for every season and occasion. It is vivid yet not too daring and looks amazing on all skin tones.
The applicator is rather long and standard but it does a good job smoothing on the buttery color and blending consistently. You can also use the very tip to outline the lip contour and I had no issue with feathering or bleeding. If you are on the hunt for some new lip color I highly recommend trying these, the Lip Velvets retail for $38.00 each.
On Valentine’s Day I also received some new Burberry Kisses Hydrating Lip Color and I am just as obsessed with these shades as I am with the Velvets. Magenta Pink is lightweight and lavish with a rich matte finish and striking vibrancy. Pink Peony is soft, refined and perfect for spring with sheer, satiny shine while Military Red is sophisticated and fiery - great for a night out. The lipsticks are etched with Burberry’s signature pattern and retail for $38.00 each.
