This rather lovely red is Burberry Lip Mist lipstick in Rosy Red. I've tried Burberry lipsticks before - typically the more pigmented Lip Velvet (matte) and Lip Cover (creamy opaque colour) types. This is my first Lip Mist, which is billed as a sheer lipstick. Much like the "sheer" eyeshadows, this isn't a typically sheer lipstick; it has a fair bit of pigment to it, but it appears soft, juicy and non-scary on the lip. The swatch above shows a single pass over the lips.
Packaging as usual is gorgeous, with the satisfying magnetic click when you put the lid back on. The colour itself is glorious - a soft, wearable red which doesn't overwhelm the face and fades to a very gentle rosy flush after a few hours. It's packed full of moisture, feels plush and comfy on the lips, and eventually fades to nothingness without leaving behind a ring of death.
It's love. I'm definitely going to check out more Lip Mist shades - I can imagine the soft juicy texture working well with a really deep vampy scarlet. Yum.
Find it at Harrods, where it will cost you a spendy (but totally worth it if you're a lipstick junkie) £23.
