What It Is:
Burberry Lip Velvet in Military Red
Oh Burberry, how I love thee. Seriously, Burberry is probably my #1 luxury brand. When they announced a new, matte lip color formula, Lip Velvet, I was beyond excited! I decided to go for a classic red that was getting all sorts of hype in the blogosphere, Military Red.
How To Use It:
Even though this is just lipstick, consider yourself warned: it is PIGMENTED and requires precision application. I recommend applying a red lip liner first and then using a lip brush to apply Military Red. I usually follow up with a couple swipes of the actual lipstick to enhance the color.
CC Rating: A+
Burberry – can you do no wrong!? Not only does Burberry’s new formula, Lip Velvet, deliver on its promise of moisturized matte perfection, the shade Military Red is really a stunner. I’ve worn this several times and every single outing I get loads of compliments. I admit; I was a bit worried about pulling off a warm-to-neutral toned red, but it happened!
There is literally no fault with this lipstick. If you are a fan of mattes, then you need to get at least a few Burberry Lip Velvets into your stash. Despite the slightly high price tag, they are a delectable treat and literally worth every penny!
Burberry Lip Velvets are available at their website for $30 USD/$36 CAD.
