Burberry Beauty’s Natural Sheer Lip Mist in Blueberry ($30 / #6) is a lightly textured deep blue-red.  I happen to love lipsticks in this color family.  They can look so pretty and dramatic on pale skin.  Some, like Chanel Rouge Coco in Rouge Noir, are highly dramatic, requiring a bit of care and precision in application (and re-application).

Burberry’s Lip Mist in Blueberry is a softer, moisturizing version of this trend.  It’s a color that one can dash on in the morning.  The cool, slightly mauvey-blue tones is part of this gorgeously-engraved bullet. The formula is light, moisturizing and has a slightly gel-like feel.  The color gives excellent coverage–it’s not as opaque as Chanel Rouge Noir, of course, but still covers my naturally pigmented lips very well.  On Liz:

Here’s Burberry Lip Mist in Blueberry in close-up on Liz:

Here are some quick swatches next to Chanel Rouge Coco in Rivoli (reviewed here), Chanel Rouge Coco in Rouge Noir (reviewed here), and Nars Velvet Lip Gloss in Baroque (reviewed here) and Club Mix (reviewed here).

Burberry Blueberry fits well with clothes in the Fall and Winter months.  It’s deep enough to be within most makeup-wearer’s comfort zone, but has enough color and pigmentation to make a subtle statement.  Many women are afraid of reds, but are comfortable with off-reds, or sheerer reds.  If so, Burberry Blueberry might be a good transition color for you to increase your comfort level withe more vibrant colors.  I love the formula and, of course, the iconic packaging.  Highly recommended.

  3. Love it! I also love Liz look here. Which products is she wearing. Thank you. You always help.

    • Hi Mar, she’s wearing Rose Ecrin blush, with Chanel Illusion D’Ombre eyeshadows in Emerveille and Epatant in the outer crease area.

      • Thenk you. The blush is beautiful and I wish I had those cheekbones.

      • Yes, thank you, very pretty make-up. is Liz still smitten with chanel lumiere? I’ve been keeping my eye out for the new chanel foundation…..though I don’t know a thing about it. (Had not ever seen Burberry Blueberrry but it is now on my official list :-) ).

  4. WOW I LOVE that! It looks incredible on Liz. I may just have to make the extra effort to get my hands on Burberry for this and Midnight Brown!

  5. Very pretty! My kind of red. :)

  6. Hi, I just wanted to let you know that I bought the Burburry primer as a result of your review and it is excellent! By far the best primer I have ever used. It is a holy grail product for me now. thanks again.

  7. that color reminds me of benefit good to go. NARS orgasm (I don’t know any other way to word it) lip gloss looks beautiful over club mix as well as the shades you swatched above. I put it over club mix this past weekend and it was so pretty.

  8. Looks lovely! Have you heard when the Burberry Luminous Concealer will come out?

  9. Lemming alert! What a gorgeous berry! The color really suits Liz.

  11. Thank you very much by the gorgeous pictures! It looks awesome on Liz.
    Don’t you think that the color of the Burberry Blueberry resembles the Rouge Coco Shine Bonheur?

  12. What an amazingly beautiful sophisticated lipstick!

  13. Did Liz put anything under or over the lipstick? I have this – but mine is quite dry…I think I’ll have to try it over lip balm. It looks nothing like your picture of it on Liz!
