I have been DYING to try out Burberry's makeup line since it came out. With it not being available locally for me to see in person, that's been extremely difficult. There are SO many great products with well known names behind them, that it's hard to bite the bullet and buy from a new beauty brand that isn't available with testers at your local counter. Hopefully, in the future, Burberry Beauty can take off and be available at my local Nordstrom too ;)
My first ever product from Burberry Beauty is the Nude Rose (no. 25) Lip Cover Soft Satin Lipstick.
Nude Rose as a shade is pretty true to it's name. It's a beige pinky rose shade that glides on with ease. This lipstick is uber creamy and wears very, very well. I've heard a few negative comments about the scent, but I don't really smell anything. There is a slight hint of a scent, but it's barely noticeable. I actually forgot about it having a scent until a friend asked me what I thought about it. Unless you're extremely sensitive to smells, you should be ok in that department.
The packaging is nice, though I did expect it to be a bit heavier, like Guerlain. I love the pattern on the casing as well as on the lipstick bullet. The case closes magnetically, so you have to make sure you have it on there just right for it to shut. I wasn't a fan of that at first, but now I kind of like it.
I definitely look forward to purchasing more from the Burberry Beauty line, after I stalk some online swatches, of course ;)
Burberry Lip Cover Soft Satin Lipstick retails for $30.00 and you can pick this up at Nordstrom.com.
I received this lipstick as an early birthday present from one of my international girls that I CP for. I just thought that should be disclosed since I didn't purchase this myself ;) Thank you, Julia!!
