Burberry Mallow Pink 1a

Spring 2013 brings new lipglosses to Burberry Beauty— I chose Mallow Pink (#19) and Pink Sweet Pea (#20) ($27 each).  Both have a similar formula–beautiful, glossy and well pigmented. These vibrant colors apply with a nice dose of rich color which nearly cover my pigmented pink-mauve lips (not all glosses do).

These have a slight perfume scent which fades after a minute or two, and I find that these are non-drying. They are one of my favorite lipgloss formulas for comfort and longevity.

 Burberry Mallow Pink is a rich pink coral.

Burberry Pink Sweet Pea is a vibrant pink with blue pearl. This combination has some edge. Although Burberry has some amazing strong reds, Pink Sweet Pea breaks new ground as one its standout pink glosses.

Here are some swatches with some vibrantly colored glosses in my collection. Here are Burberry Pink Sweet Pea, Burberry Mallow Pink, Chanel Courtisane, Chanel Pink Pulsion, the very sheer Chanel Fluo Laser, Chanel Pink Teaser, and Guerlain Terracotta Gloss Fraise a Coquer (this was limited edition from a past collection and no longer available, and yet it’s spectacular).

Bottom line: If you are looking for vibrantly colored, yet sophisticated, beautifully formulated glosses, these are both amazing choices. The colors are brightening and gorgeous.

  1. What pretty glosses!

  2. I love the Mallow Pink gloss – so pretty!

  3. Beautiful! Sweet Pea reminds me of LMdB’s “Mum’s the Word” released last spring…similar bright, opaque, cool magenta…love!

  4. Hi Amy, both Mallow Pink and Sweet Pea look beautiful on Liz, but I would have say Sweet Pea is the standout here! Hydrangea seems to a perfect pairing 🙂

  5. Mallow Pink looks absolutely stunning on Liz! Oh boy… these are going to be tough to resist!

  6. I am so torn between theses two!-it’s like choosing between your children !-impossible -the sweet pea make your blue eyes pop!

  7. Thanks for the swatches! Is Sweet Pea close to Chanel Glossimer Jalousie #169? I thought of it when I saw the pictures 🙂

  8. Sigh….I can’t decide which one I like more. First world beauty problems!

  9. Both look lovely on Liz!! But I prefer Mallow Pink. Something about it is just so attractive and cute.

  10. I couldn’t decide between these two so I bought them both 😀 I love them and they’re both in my purse for on-the-go color. The formula is also fantastic; it’s *so* comfortable to wear I’ve been known to put this on instead of lip balm! I ended up not getting the Coral gloss because I was worried it would be too orange for me, and I *think* that was the right call, but I keep looking at swatches online and reconsidering.
