REVIEW & SWATCHES | Burberry Full Kisses

4:59 PM

If there was ever a lipstick that I want to tell everyone "You've GOT to try this" it's this one. Trust me, there are plenty of lipstick formulas that come across my desk but very few I am as excited about sharing as Burberry's Full Kisses line which was sent to me as part of my partnership with Burberry. (SALE ALERT: Sephora's annual VIB sale runs this weekend from Nov 11-14 for 20% off, which these lipsticks are a part of, using code 20VIB.)

From opacity to ease of application to hydrating feel, it ticks off plenty of boxes as a favorite go-to lippy.

The packaging has a reflective gunmetal tube which twists the product up from the bottom. There is a good portion of the lipstick which is always visible so it's wise to take care when opening the cap not to scrape the product. I found the tip shape particularly interesting because it's almost like the tip of a highlighter which makes it extremely application-friendly since you can see where the lipstick edge is without any fancy arm contortioning.

I was sent three shades: Rose Apricot No. 521, Lilac No. 541, and Rosewood No. 533. All are a modern, glossy formula without any glitters or shimmers. 

Rose Apricot No. 521 is a pastel creamsicle shade. Because it's quite bold, I would recommend it for those with lighter skintones for everyday wear but it is still very pretty as a statement lipstick. It translates gorgeously in photos as well.

You guys probably already know what a fan of purple lip products I am so Lilac No. 541 is totally up my alley. Particularly in the Fall time, it's a great pop of color since it matches both smokey and neutral eyes and it's especially pretty on those with yellow undertones.

You know how I love to save the best for last and Rosewood No. 533 is it! I bet you thought it would be Lilac which is what I assumed, but believe it or not this shade is even better! If there's one kind of lipstick I can't live without it is the holy grail MLBB (my lips but better) and I have officially found my new favorite. 

This slightly warm coral-rose brightens my whole complexion and looks natural yet sophisticated. Yes it's not as exciting in photos, but trust me, this baby made me do a little happy dance as soon as it was on. A well-used product is a well-loved one. :)

You can find the entire Burberry Full Kisses line now at Sephora and Burberry for $30 apiece.

If you are stocking up on a few favorites or gifts during the VIB sale, I highly recommend trying it out especially Rosewood No. 533 for an opaque, hydrating MLBB which will work across many seasons and skintones.

    1. You should! I love how they feel when worn and the color payoff is really wonderful.

  4. Rosewood is a fantastic shade. It really looks lovely on you. Of the three it is the one I'd most likely choose for myself ^^

    I find the packaging intriguing. I'm a total weirdo about packaging.


    1. Aw thank you! It's definitely the easiest to wear. And I'm such a packaging nerd too, haha!

  5. These shades are beautiful! Love what you represent.
