Burberry Lip Mist in Blueberry Review

September 8, 2011

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.

    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.

    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?

    What an amazingly beautiful sophisticated lipstick!

  • bisbee September 9, 2011 at 2:40 am

    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!

      No, she did not.
