Burberry Liquid Lip Velvet No. 21 Primrose

Burberry Liquid Lip Velvet No. 21 Primrose Liquid Lipstick

I'm not the biggest fan of liquid lipsticks because my lips are prone to being dry, plus I find that a lot of them look too flat. That being said, I have a few that I like (post here) and when I saw that Burberry were releasing a range of lip velvets, I decided that I'd take the plunge and order one. There are 14 shades available - nudes, pinks, berries and reds so I think there is something for everyone. I chose No. 21 Primrose, which is a beautiful mid-pink, although I really wanted 09 Fawn Rose but it was out of stock. I ordered directly from Burberry & received my order within 3/4 days with free delivery.

This is my first Burberry makeup purchase and I have to say that I really like the packaging not only of the product itself but also the Burberry gift bag that it came in, but then again when I'm spending €28 on a liquid lipstick, I expect a bit of luxury!

Now on to the lipstick itself. The pigmentation is spot on - one swipe gives a completely opaque finish and the small doe foot applicator means that it is easy to get a precise application. The texture is thicker than some other liquid lipsticks that I have tried but it doesn't feel heavy on the lips and it applies very evenly. It takes a little bit of time to set but once it does, it doesn't budge and the finish isn't super matte - it is velvet as the name suggests. As a result, it doesn't show up any dryness on the lips and doesn't look as flat as some matte lipsticks can. 

It is extremely comfortable to wear and in terms of longevity, I find that it lasts for around 5 hours on the lips before it needs to be re-applied and it can be topped up without any caking or flakiness, which is a big plus.

I absolutely love the petal pink shade and think I will get more wear out of it come Spring/Summer. For now, I would love to get my hands on Fawn Rose so I am keeping my eye out for a re-stock of that shade and I also love the look of Brilliant Violet.
