Sometimes high-end brands are overrated. The packaging can be underwhelming and the formulas and colours are on par or worse than the average to cheaper brands. Burberry is every bit a high-end line and if you love your luxury brands then Burberry should be on your 'It' list. I just love the metal magnetic casing with the signature plaid detailing.
Burberry Soft Satin Lipstick in Rosewood is like a classic trench - it's a neutral lipstick that will never go out of style. It's a lovely rose-pink with brown undertones and golden shimmer. On my skin tone, the brown tones of the lipstick come out more. On fair-skinned beauties, it looks rosier. I love that it looks different on everyone making it a very wearable neutral. In the tube, it doesn't look too exciting but if you're looking for high-end neutrals this is a must-have basic shade.
I LOVE the satiny smooth finish of this lipstick. It's buttery soft, well pigmented and contains anti-aging properties for fuller definition. I love smushing my lips together just to feel the lipstick. The only bad point for me is the texture and colour aren't as long-lasting as other lipsticks. My solution - I like to press it into the lips as a stain with my fingers then apply the lipstick from the tube. I also notice that after a few uses the lipstick looks like it's melting. Don't worry, it's not so soft that it will break on you!
The shade range is something I would love to have in my kit for my brides. There is a great selection of neutral and blushing shades. At $30 USD, this will definitely be a splurge item for me.
