Burberry Nude Rose Lipstick for Fall 2011

August 4, 2011

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).

    What a lovely color! Thanks for the review. This is Chanel “plumetis” by the way, not “plumentis” (maybe they made a mistake on the packaging- “plumentis” doesn’t mean anything). Sorry about being a spelling nerd- as a lover of French brands I thought you would want to get this right.

    This is completely unrelated but I’d love to hear your thoughts on the eyes to kill mascara!

      It’s fixed and I really, REALLY appreciate the correction. I assure you the mistake is mine, not Chanel’s! I will give thoughts on ETK–It just arrived and I’ll try it out over the next few weeks….

    I passed on this colour, as I’ve amassed such a large collection of Burberry lip shades (both mists and covers), but your posts always make me ponder my decision-making! (Earthy is now on my to-buy list.) Nude Rose looks beautiful, and I happened to have picked up Plumetis already, which I adore. Hrm, maybe I will buy Nude Rose when I’ve whittled down more of my lipsticks. As for Nude Beige, I am with you on that one. I haven’t tried it on or seen it in person (only on Sabrina’s site and in pictures that my trusty Burberry SA sent me), though I had a gut feeling that this shade wouldn’t cut it for me.

    Is it awful that I am seriously lemming Nude Cashmere and am frustrated that I have no access to Burberry? Grey-nudes are best on me, surprisingly.
