Burberry Kisses

Hey beauts,

Hope you all had a good weekend! I went shopping but totally didn't get what I went for! Bex you made a list for a reason! *sigh*

Anyway I'm sidetracking. For those of you on Twitter. You may have seen the very ingenious campaign by Burberry to spread the word about their new lipsticks.

The #Burberrykisses concept basically meant you could send 5 people of your choice a Burberry Kiss sample, they choose out of 4 shades, then they recommend 5 people, who recommend 5 more. On and on, so on and so forth.

Brilliant idea from a high end brand. Not only does it get people talking about the lippies but it also gave beauty bloggers a great incentive to post about them, thus boosting interest come release day.

I was tweeted by the lovely and was super excited to choose my colour! :D

I chose sepia no:85 which I thought was a pinky, mauve shade but comes across more brown to me (which is so strange as in Kristina's review here, it looks way more pink!) it does have pink undertones however the brown was more dominate once applied.

Its a gorgeous satin finish which I love and glides on so smoothly, you don't even feel like you're wearing it plus these beauties are enriched with the brands signature ingredients of tea, lavender and rosehip which help keep your lips hydrated. The bonus of this is, you don't really need a lip liner unless it's to add extra longevity. Winner :D

Burberry claim these last up to 6 hours, now I did get a good 3 before I needed to touch up, however I had eaten a meal so I automatically re-apply due to wiping my mouth with a napkin (don't you feel happy now I shared my hygiene routine haha)

(by the way are my lip pictures ok or weird? Would hand swatches only, be preferred?)

Overall a really nice lipstick, very cool packaging with the sleek Burberry design on the tube and embossed into the lipstick. It's little things like this, that makes a product feel more luxurious.

These little tubes of loveliness cost £25 (pricey but so nice) and come in 28 shades. Go check them out here :)

Have you tried any of these lipsticks? What do think? 

Much Love,

  1. I absolutely love the shade of lipstick, I've never considered Burberry for makeup before (I have a few super soft Burberry jumpers which I've worn to death) so maybe I need to add some Burberry lippy to my life! :) x

    1. Oooh you lucky thing! I'm so treating myself once I hit my goal :)
      Defo try these lippies hun, the formula is spot on and the various shades are gorgeous! I'm eyeing the coral one. Simply delicious. Lol x
