Burberry Lip Glow Gloss in Rosewood ($27 / Burberry ‘Lip Glow’ Natural Lip Gloss #01) is my first exposure to Burberry Beauty’s lipgloss range. Although I’ve tried many other items in their line–the foundation, some blushes, eyeshadows and some of their lipsticks–I was intrigued to try their beautiful neutral toned glosses.
The container is modern, classic and gorgeous. The clear rectangle is substantial without feeling too heavy, the closure is secure and the doe foot applicator is foolproof. This is a gloss that you can put in your handbag and apply it anytime, usually without needing a mirror. I have a deep love for easy to wear, gorgeous glosses that shine. There are no apparent shimmery bits in this gloss, so as it wears down the look is quite natural.
I chose #01 Rosewood because it fits so beautifully with the rest of Burberry’s line-it’s a neutral, beautiful, high gloss neutral that compliments so many other items. The staying power is quite excellent for a gloss, and it feels moisturizing and not sticky. It has a luxurious feeling. There is a slight scent in the tube that fades immediately when I put it on my lips (how do they do that?)
Here’s a comparison with some other easy to wear glosses, Chanel’s Extrait de Gloss in Insouciance ($30) and NARS Dolce Vita ($24):
Overall, I love Burberry Rosewood lipgloss-highly recommended.
As an aside, there’s a fun Holiday video posted on Burberry’s site–has a very London vibe. Enjoy!
