Reviewing Burberry’s Lip Glow in Mallow Pink [In Our Makeup Bag]


What It Is:

Burberry Lip Glow in Mallow Pink from the Spring ’13 Collection

Why This Should Be in Your Bag:

Burberry, how I love thee. Seriously, this cosmetics line is absolutely fabulous, with products well worth every single penny! Their Spring ’13 line “Siren Red” features a few new shades (most of which are permanent!), including their luxurious Lip Glow formula in Mallow Pink. It’s described as “bright coral red” and, in the tube, pretty much fits that bill! The Lip Glow formula is stand-out amongst lipglosses; it’s non-sticky and actually moisturizes while adding glossy shine!

How To Use It:

The doe foot applicator on Burberry Lip Glows makes application a breeze – just swipe and go! Often, lipgloss is suggested to be worn over lipstick, but Mallow Pink is really a standalone color and can be worn without anything else.

CC Rating: A+

God Burberry, why do you have to be so darn perfect!? Mallow Pink is officially the shade of Spring/Summer 2013; everyone will be wearing (or wishing they were wearing) this lipgloss! The formula is the same glossy, yet moisturizing goodness you’ve come to love from Burberry. The scent is identical to all of Burberry’s other offerings: slightly floral and very subdued. I actually love it, but if you have a scent aversion, this may be a no-go for you.

The $27 USD/$30 CAD price tag may be a bit tough to swallow for some gals, but trust me, it’s worth it! Burberry Mallow Pink Lip Glow is available from their websites, or Nordstrom in the US and Holt Renfrew in Canada. Enjoy!

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.
