Burberry Liquid Lip Velvet Review

 

Burberry Liquid Lip Velvet Review

 

Good Day Peeps! Right when these lippies came out, they weren’t really well-received, yet they were sold out somehow. I never really understood the mixed results and I wanted to try them myself, so I visited my local Burberry counter at Nordstrom and swatched these Liquid Lip Velvets on my arm. However, I wasn’t really smitten like most reviews at that time because the formulation is somewhat not like most matte or velvet liquid lipsticks in the market nowadays, or at least I expected it to be one. I felt like the textures were somewhat inconsistent like some were sort of watery, while some were creamy and didn’t seem to settle on the skin. So, off I went home without them.

Fast forward, a couple of months later, I noticed that the reviews of the Burberry Liquid Lip Velvets were somewhat getting better and better, and obviously, I wanted to give it another try. Oh well, tough luck, I couldn’t find the shades I wanted anymore. The Liquid Lip Velvets have been sold out for some time already, so I had to wait and hope. It took a while to acquire the two shades I’ve been eyeing, and once I received them, I felt like I was really wrong with my first impression towards them, and now I am currently loving them a lot.

 

The shades that I purchased are below;

 

Burberry Liquid Lip Velvet

Fawn No. 05Nude Rosy Brown. I call this the perfect warm neutral shade with hints of rosy brown. This shade is simply stunning and it’s one of the most beautiful mid-tone nude rose shade I’ve ever seen. It’s so wearable for any complexion and it’ll look best with anyone that has a medium skin tone. The hint of subtle brown warms the shade and making it naturally and subtly alluring.

Dark Rosewood No. 17Intense Rosewood. Slightly similar to Fawn No. 05 with a more mauve pink tone. This one is another head-turner and there’s a reason why it’s almost always sold out nowadays. It’s a great shade to have if you’re into nude shades but wanted a bit more color.

Even though these Liquid Lip Velvets don’t really transform or dry into matte effect liquid lipsticks, thus making them non-transfer proof, I realize that it really doesn’t seem to matter because I adore their colors. Theirs are the most well-blended shades of lipsticks I’ve ever tried and it complements on anyone’s skin tone perfectly well. The packaging is robust and sleek too, which is what you’d normally expect from most Burberry beauty products. The brush applicator could use some improvements but for those who are finicky with scented lippies, fret not because these Liquid Lip Velvets almost don’t have any scent.

You may or may not like the whipped creamy formulation and the sort of velvet effect that these have on the lips, but if you want lip colors that won’t settle into the lips’ fine lines and feels very comfortable, then you might want to try them. They feel really creamy, almost thickly whipped yet they’re lightweight. They also have a powdery or chalky consistency which makes a natural, smooth, and seamless effect on the lips. It’s almost like you didn’t just apply a lipstick, but it’s more like you’ve had it hours ago, or that the shade has always been your lips’ natural color. Ain’t that nice? They’re also well-pigmented, so each swipe could last from 4-6 hours on me, although you may want to reapply after eating.

Besides the lasting pigment, the nice thing is the fact that these Liquid Lip Velvets will never dry your lips. If you wanna know some similar dupes, I feel like Buxom Wildly Whipped Liquid Lipstick and Too Faced Melted Liquified Lipstick are slightly similar, but I think the newly-released Bare Minerals GEN NUDE Matte Liquid Lip Color is a very good contender. A review of it will be coming soon. So, stay tuned.

 

The Burberry Liquid Lip Velvet is available in Sephora, Nordstrom, Net-A-PorterSaks Fifth Avenue, and Burberry.com

Samples of The Week: Fresh, Dior, Tarte, Sunday Riley, Tory Burch & Burberry

Good day folks! Here’s another set of samples that I’ve been testing for this week’s review. The products that I’m about to mention are truly great, and most of them are worth having in regular sizes. There’s a lip treatment, a nourishing moisturizer, a scent for men, some lip swatches and a blush. I don’t remember where I got each sample, but I’m pretty sure most of them are from Sephora, and some may be from Nordies, if I’m not mistaken. So, without further ado, let’s start the review.

 

Tory Burch Jolie Fleur Lavande, Burberry mr Burberry eau de toilette, tarte Amazonian clay 12-hr blush paaarty, Sunday Riley ceo moisturizer, dior rouge dior matte finish lipsticks, fresh sugar lip treatment perfecting wand

 


 

fresh sugar lip treatment perfecting wand review

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment Perfecting Wand (0.1 oz: $24) – A lip treatment/exfoliator that smells or tastes like mango with lemon. It has loofah oil, cupuaçu and mango butter for moisturization, with black currant and grapeseed oil as antioxidants. This lip treatment has tiny sugar particles that’s meant to scrub and exfoliate the lips with its silicone or rubber-like wand applicator. Great for using every day and also as a lip conditioner at night. Though I didn’t notice much exfoliation with this lip treatment, I love that it keeps my lips moisturized overnight and it prevents my lips from drying even more. The silicon applicator feels great when massaged onto the lips, but it doesn’t necessarily exfoliate. The overall formula is great, it’s thick and it works very well if you are prone to dry chapped lips, though I think there could be some other products that may work just the same for a much lesser price tag.

 

rouge dior matte lipsticks

Dior, Rouge Dior Lipsticks, Matte Finish (0.12 oz: $35 ) – These are a few sample shades of the latest Rouge Dior Matte Lipsticks. The formula is extremely matte and slightly drying, but long wearing for about 6-8 hours. The bubblegum/cotton candy scent can be a hit or a miss for some, but I actually like it a lot. There’s different shades in this particular finish and they seem to be wearable and quite pretty. Out of all the 4 shades swatched below, I like the 772 Classic Matte shade because it’s the most wearable shade of all. Delicate matte is too nude for me, 787 Exuberant Matte is too bright for a pink, more like an electric/neon pink, while 999 Matte is also good, but it’s too bright of a red for me. A fiery red that’s almost red-orange in tone.

tarte amazonian blush

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Paaarty (0.2 oz: $29) – Got this as a birthday gift from Sephora. I love shade of this sun-baked blush. It’s soft and wearable for a natural daytime look. It gives a subtle flush on the cheeks and it stays on for a long time. Don’t worry, this won’t make you look like Pikachu. LOL.

Sunday Riley C.E.O, C+E Antioxidant Protect + Repair Moisturizer review

Sunday Riley C.E.O, C+E Antioxidant Protect + Repair Moisturizer (1.7 oz: $65) – Never tried any Sunday Riley products before, and I could say that this long-named moisturizer is heavenly. With a superior and highly potent form of Vitamin C and some added antioxidants, this moisturizer is luxurious and it smells good, like an orange tart or an orange cream. It goes into the skin smoothly and it keeps it hydrated for a long time. A little too oily or too thick for my taste though, specially in this warming weather. Since this moisturizer has no Spf, I’d probably use this at night. Otherwise, I love this cream a lot and I could see this working well, because we all know that Vitamin C is really good for the skin.

 

tory burch Jolie fleur lavande

Tory Burch Jolie Fleur Lavande (6ml Rollerball: $29, 50 ml: $95, 100 ml: $125) – A light scent of lavender with hints of magnolia and bergamot. It’s on the powdery floral side and is soothing and refreshing at the same time. Very long lasting as the scent could still be noticed the following day. It’s ideal for spring and has a nice and clean dry down.

 

mr Burberry eau de toilette

Burberry, Mr. Burberry Eau de Toilette (1.0 oz: $55, 1.6 oz: $68, 3.3 oz: $88, 5.0 oz: $115) – A scent for the modern man, it’s casual, it’s sensual and smart. With grapefruit and Guaiacwood, this scent is simply pleasing to the senses. It’s not musky, but more of a refreshing long lasting scent. I usually love men’s perfumes or colognes and this one is really good. Slightly similar to Hugo Boss Perfumes, but this one is more irresistible.

Verdict: I love this week’s samples a lot. If I have to buy them in full sizes, I’d say, I’ll probably purchase the Sunday Riley C.E.O Moisturizer, Tory Burch Jolie Fleur Lavande, Mr. Burberry Eau de Toilette para mi esposo, a couple of Rouge Dior Matte Lipsticks in shades of my choosing, and perhaps a few of Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hr Blushes.
