Burberry say: "A single kiss of colour gives understated luminosity; two or three kisses gives intense depth and vibrancy." You can really build up the colour result from a delicate whisper of colour, to something much bolder while remaining on the side of understated; these lipsticks are perfectly wearable for those of you not accustomed to the texture of a lipstick, but who still demand a great colour result. The rich blend of satin finish pigments and shiny polymers provides a luminous finish that's relatively sheer, providing lips with a touch of shine that makes them even more kissable. The colour result is also a lot more wearable and doesn't look or feel like lipstick, which can sometimes be ageing; this is a very modern approach to lip colour.
Enriched with Burberry’s signature blend of tea, lavender and rosehip, the light texture glides on with supreme comfort and gives six hours of continuous hydration; lips feel hydrated and smooth, without being weighed down by a drying and thick texture so normally associated with lipstick. Although the downside is that you do have to ensure your lips are looking their best underneath (the pale shade looked horrendous until I'd undertaken a little lip buffing and maintenance,) these are a great daytime alternative to gloss or balm. My lips aren't left feeling dry, the colour doesn't bleed or transfer to excess, making these great for popping in your bag and reapplying on the go. With thirteen fabulous shades to choose from, I've no doubt there's a colour to suit everyone.
The 'Burberry Kisses' lipstick is exclusive to Harrods; available in 13 shades and priced £25.00.
