Fall in love over and over and over again. I’m talking about the newest range of lipsticks from one of my favorite beauty brand, Burberry. Aptly named Full Kisses, these lip pen- style lippies deliver phenomenal coverage, brilliant pigmentation and superbly moisturizing formula. Scroll down for more information, photos, and swatches.
Encased in identifiable gunmetal plaid twist-up tube, these lipsticks differ in presentation in comparison to the classic Burberry bullets. For the most part, they’re chicer and sleeker, kind of a lip crayon but edgier and sexier in so many levels. Sold in 14 shades for $30 each, the Full Kisses collection features beautiful nudes, reds, berries and pinks in varying intensity. I picked up three during the Sephora VIB Rouge sale the other week.
Oxblood is dark berry red, an offshoot of Burberry Lip Velvet Oxblood (a cult favorite) albeit a tad darker and luminous whether swatched or worn on the lips. Lilac is pinkish purple and Nude is mlbb (my lips but better) which pulls warm against my medium skin tone. All three have sensational opacity and wear time sans feathering. The only con is how the tip is exposed (does not twist down like traditional lipsticks) so you have to exercise caution in recapping or risk denting it. Yeah, I’m Just OC like that.
Here are side by side swatches for your better appreciation.
…and here they are in action.
Bottom line, these are all must-haves. Mother’s Day is coming so you may want to treat yourself, your mom, sister and all other mothers in your life. Give me one and I’ll shower you with kisses!
