I had been after a new nude lipstick for quite some time, ever seen I had ran out of my favourite Nars lipstick in Dolce Vita. Since i’m graduating in the next few days, I thought that I would spoil myself with a Burberry Lip Velvet lipstick in the shade Peony Rose and a new lipliner by MAC Pro Longwear Lip pencil in Morning Coffee.
Anyways, you can see my thoughts on it below and check out some pictures to help you if you’re considering on getting it for yourself!
Burberry Lip Velvet in Peony Rose. It’s a really lovely rosy-nude shade, with a matte finish to it. The formula is not drying at all and it feels so nice on my lips. It claims to be long wearing but I don’t really think it is. I’ll eat a meal and it’ll be almost be gone by the end of it. I’m not sure if this just applies to the lighter shades in their matte range. One minor issue is the strong scent of the lipstick itself, it has that old, floral lipstick scent. I don’t mind it too much, but if you’re sensitive to strong scents then maybe give it a sniff if you’re considering on purchasing it. While the staying power of the lipstick isn’t that great, I still really like the formula and shade of it.
MAC Pro Longwear Lip Pencil in Morning Coffee. Morning Coffee is a brown/mauve shade.This lip pencil can be worn alone or under your lipstick. I bought it so I could bring some depth to the Burberry lipstick. I line my outer lipsticks with the lip pencil and then fill the rest of my lips with the Burberry lipstick, then clean up with edges with the lip pencil again. I like how it’s so versatile and actually like wearing it alone too and it’s long lasting so you don’t need to worry too about touching it up later in the day! Even at the end of the day, after some wear, it leaves still leaves a nice wash of colour on the lips
I love them paired together as the lip pencil gives the lipstick long wearing power and . Lately i’ve been really into nude/rose lipsticks so don’t be too surprised if you see more pictures and reviews in the future.
Thanks for reading, i’d like to know if you have tried anything from the Burberry cosmetic range and if you have any suggestions.
