I received a sample of Burberry Lip Cover Soft Satin lipstick containing 4 shades - Blush no. 09, Nude Beige no. 01, Rosewood no. 04, Brick Red no. 19. Burberry does know how to make lipsticks which feel like second skin on the lips. All four colors are sheer and hydrating. Since the sample size is so small I can only apply with a brush which does not help in getting intense color. These are faintly scented but nice. The wear time is not great.

Blush no. 09 is reddish pink and brings out the natural pink in your lips. One can wear this shade everyday with any look. It may look good on all skin tones. This was the first color I tried in this sample and it really looked beautiful. This is a favourite. I plan on buying the full size once available in India.
Nude Beige no. 01 is a beige shade which falls flat on my dusky skin tone. It could be used as to lighten the lip edges. Frankly this shade is for light skin tones.
Rosewood no. 04 is a brown with some shimmer. Again, this is an everyday color and makes the lips look natural, shiny and healthy. Colors like Rosewood and Blush are complete sellout.
Brick Red no. 19 is dark red. Since it leans brown on me, I do not use it alone. After applying a favourite red, I use this shade just on the middle of lips. This shade is only for winters, other times it’s too dark.
Recommendation - Burberry lipsticks are great and the packaging is classic. If you are a newbie to lipstick and can lighten your purse a bit, start with this range of Burberry.
