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:

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.
