Burberry Lip Velvet in Pink Azalea: Review, Swatches, FOTD

 

The Burberry Lip Velvets are currently my favourite matte lipstick formulation. Burberry Lip Velvets in Antique Pink and Rose Pink (reviewed on the blog in an earlier post) are staples in my makeup bag.

When I found out that the deep berry shade used on Cara Delevigne in the Burberry Lip Velvets ad (shown below- where she is looking into the mirror, holding a brush)  was Pink Azalea, I suddenly needed to make it mine. In the space of 5 minutes after the MUA applied it on me, the credit card was being swiped and the lippy in the bag.

Pink Azalea is a darkened berry pink with full pigmentation in one swipe. Is it anything like the colour on the Burberry Ad? Not even close, but I love it anyway.

Even though it’s not a bright or dramatic colour, I think it’s quite a unique shade in this finish- and I don’t own any lipstick like it. It’s interesting and sophisticated at the same time. I’m a big fan of this for all occasions.

My only qualm about Pink Azalea is that Compared with Rose Pink and Antique Pink Lip Velvets, Pink Azalea feels drier on the lips and can emphasize lip lines when your lips are not moisturised (just like in these photos haha). I find that with a little bit of lip prepping TLC Pink Azalea sits a lot nicer and it’s well worth the extra effort in this case.
