burberry lip glows

A whole post dedicated to lipglosses, there's something I thought I'd never see on my blog! But all in the name of Burberry of course. It's a well known fact that I hate lipglosses apart from on the rare occasion so it has to be said that I was the ideal candidate to put this lot through their paces. The sleek and classic packaging makes these glosses superior to anything else in my collection, if I were ever going to be impressed by a lipgloss this was the best chance. Upon applying the product to my lips I loved the silky rather than sticky texture and the fact they taste like Turkish Delight, so another big plus on that count. They are also really pigmented and what I would best describe as a finish between a lip stain and gloss. Finally, I found that the product lasted on my lips for longer than expected, in my eyes they are the perfect glosses to try out if you are a typical lipgloss hater. They may be pricey but put those horrible sticky pink cheap lipglosses to shame. 

Coral No.22 £18 - I usually don't go for coral colours on my lips but I really like the blue undertones in this that give it a slightly frosty finish. If you were to choose just one lipgloss for the Summer season this would most certainly be it.

Vintage Gold No.18 (limited edition) £19 - When I first saw this shade I thought to myself 'brown lipgloss? yuck' but surprisingly it's turned out to be my favourite of the bunch. I've never really tried a warm toned lipgloss before and maybe that's why I've never got on well with them before, this shade really suits my skin tone and is like a 'my lips but better' shade. It makes my lips turn a deeper shade of red with a hint of sparkle, definitely well worth a look if you hate the typical pink lipgloss shades.

Pink Sweet Pea No.20 £18 - Last but not least is this bright fuchsia pink, it has no shimmer or glitter making it a great choice for those who like a simple lip colour. I really like this one as it brings out the green in my eyes really nicely and doesn't look too glossy. This will be my go to shade for Spring!


  1. I agree that Burberry mastered these colours, even if not a lipgloss fan...Vintage Gold looks tempting too, seeing it turning into a MLBB hue

  2. These look lovely! The colours are so unique yet so nice! :) ♥
