Get Luxe Lips with Burberry Lip Velvet [In Our Makeup Bag]


What It Is:

Burberry Lip Velvet in Military Red

Why This Should Be in Your Bag:

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.

I love my little hometown and all that goes with living in the Great White North - snow, skiing, hot chocolate, bulky knit sweaters. I'm passionate about a lot of things, but you'll most often find me writing about books, makeup and fashion. As I like to put it, I've got beauty AND brains.
