As the winter months move through Northern California, I’ve been loving my deeper toned lipsticks more and more. The one that I’ve loved most has been Burberry Oxblood Lip Mist ($30) because of its rich, moisturizing formula, deep-jewel toned color, and sheerness that looks young and modern. Used without a pencil liner, the look is polished and yet never overdone (and certainly not goth!).
Here are comparisons with other deep sheers in my collection–Burberry Blueberry Lip Mist (which is close), the sheer, deep wine Yves Saint Laurent Pourpre Intouchable (reviewed here) and Chanel Rouge Coco in Rivoli. Burberry Oxblood has a good kick of color. With a medium-intensity liner underneath (I’ve been using Chanel Rose Cuivre (reviewed here), although others can be used too of course), it gives serious, rich, shiny color that lasts for hours. When worn alone, the wear time is better than Chanel Rouge Coco Shine, and about as good as the Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Shine.
Here is Burberry Oxblood on Liz, without any liner, primer or base. Here is a full-face look:
Here, she is also wearing Burberry Nude Radiance Fresh Glow on her upper cheek (reviewed here) and forehead, and Burberry Nude Radiance Fresh Glow Powder on her lower cheek (reviewed here). She’s also wearing Guerlain Crazy Terracotta as a blush, Burberry Lip Mist in Oxblood. She’s styled her fair with the T3 Bodywaver (also available at Sephora), Alterna CC Caviar Cream and Alterna Luminous Shine Mist.
Overall, I’ve been loving Burberry Oxblood. It’s been a lovely addition to my cooler-toned based looks this wintry season.
