Burberry Kisses Sheer (C$36 for 0.12 oz) is an ultra light weight lipstick and delivers a balm-like gel texture which hydrates lips while wearing. I wanted to thank the Burberry group for sending these beautiful Lipsticks for my review. As I have mentioned in the previous post Burberry Illuminating face powders, this is my first time going over Burberry beauty line. So far I am loving it and I can’t wait until I discover more about this beauty line and to share it will you all. I have one more post about the new release from Burberry lipstick line which is to come just right after this review.
These  Burberry Kisses Sheer comes in twist up tube with a magnetic cap. This Burberry Kisses Sheer line carries in 28 gorgeous shades with a sheer shine finish. The texture is creamy and glides onto the lips effortlessly and feels moisturizing. In terms of coverage I would say they are sheer to medium in coverage, definitely buildable and you can get the true color with second or third swipe. It has a translucent texture and gives lips a glow with just one swipe. For me it’s always good to know that they have been formulated without Parabens, Sulfates and Phthalates. I loved how it is free of fragrance and lanolin, this added a plus point to this lipstick.

Closer look to all shades and swatches:
Based on my testing I would say no if you’re having a super dry lips. Having a smooth lips surface is must for these lipstick in order to get the most out of them. I’d recommend applying a primer before (at least an hour before) wearing this lipstick or scrubbing lips once a week will permanently solve the problem for good. As my readers know by now I love wearing light weight formulas with a sheer coverage during the day rather than full pigmented lipstick unless it’s an event. This Burberry Kisses Sheer is perfect to wear during the day and night. I find they do little smudge around the lip line, adding a lip liner by lining and filling or mixing with these lipsticks would not only seals it from smudging, it will also give a new look each time you’re wearing. Having said that if you’re have a pigmented lips wearing nudes lipstick with sheer or translucent coverage is a little bit challenging, by lining the lips with a lip liner will even out the sharp contrast between the natural lip color and the lipstick. Lasting power isn’t quite as long but it lasted like the average medium wear lipstick, but adding any long-lasting lip liner under neat will extend the wear of it.

I am not getting over the fact that I had no red lipstick on my drawer. I have a couple of deep reds (burgundy), but nothing that I could have compare the Military Red from Burberry with. But as you can see from the swatch above, it is a beautiful bright red shade that is definitely a must for this season, since I have seen lots of military shade pieces trending for the season, this Military Red will give a perfect look to the outfit.

IMG_1839Bottom line these Burberry Kisses Sheer are amazing in terms of formula, wear and finish. After playing with these for couple of weeks now I am truly impressed with them in any terms, totally looks luxurious carrying and wearing. The Burberry Kisses Sheer is available at Sephora stores and online at www.Burberry.com and www.Sepora.com.
