Burberry Fall 2011 includes Lip Cover Soft Satin Lipstick in Nude Rose ($30 #25), a highly wearable deep nude with a strong rose undertone. There are various colors that are so easy to wear that you barely notice that you have them on–several easy pinks fall into this category. A nude rose can fall into this category, as long as it’s not too nude (which can make one look lifeless) or too brown (which can make one look stuck in the 1990’s). Nude Rose is an elegant solution. The final effect gives a beautiful polish and finish to the overall look, providing a flattering soft color that works on almost any age. It’s a nude that makes one looks polished and alive. On Liz:
Here are some swatch comparisons of Burberry Nude Rose with Burberry Lip Mist in Copper Mist (review forthcoming), which is sheerer and more gold, Chanel Rouge Coco in Plumetis (review here) which is more pink) and Chanel Patchouli (review here) which is in the same family but is less creamy and more shimmery.
I can recommend Burberry Nude Rose–it has a creamy, pleasant formula that looks very polished and luxurious. My husband swears that Burberry’s formula are the ‘most kissable’ of all of the high end lipsticks that I own.
Just a word on Burberry in Nude Cashmere ($30 / #26), also released in this collection–no. To elaborate, for some reason this color just turned gray on me. I’ll just say it. Although I’m an avid fan of the universality of Burberry’s color palette, I’m not sure what they were thinking on this one. To see the shade, Sabrina at The Beauty Look Book has swatches here (although she notes that this isn’t a color that she prefers either).
