I’ve been intrigued by Burberry’s addition of make up products ever since its launch and the newest product, Burberry Kisses, is a collection of 28 luxuriously buildable and hydrating lip shades inspired by Burberry’s iconic fabrics. However for the samples we could only choose between a few shades, I chose 05 Nude Pink.
With samples, you don’t expect to get any nice packaging of sort so I was shocked to see that the Burberry Kisses sample came with the exact packaging of the full size version only much smaller. I absolutely adore the packaging of this especially the iconic Burberry pattern imprinted onto the lipstick itself.
05 Nude Pink is a beautiful natural shade, very much ‘your lips but better’. It is very creamy, smooth and comfortable to wear and not drying in the slightest. However, the longevity is not the best, it definitely does not last anywhere near 6 hours like Burberry suggest. I would say it’s a perfect day to day shade, if you don’t mind topping it up every few hours.
Due to this, I would probably not fork out £25.00 on a full size version of this when I can get a much cheaper lipstick to achieve the same look from Boots or Superdrug. However I’d imagine other shades in the range may be worth it, I do wish I had now chosen a darker shade, like 109 Military Red.
