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

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.

Burberry Lip Velvet Rose Pink 307 and Antique Pink 303: Review, Swatches, FOTD

I’ve been mad about matte lipsticks lately. There are so many brands coming out with great matte ranges in recent times, and new matte formulas are getting better and better; In fact, some of them wear better on my dry lips than non-mattes (I would not have believed this possible 2 years ago).

The Burberry Lip Velvets are an example of a beautifully formulated matte lipstick, with a gorgeous colour range. I looked into the Lip Velvets after Yishan from Beauty Swatch recommended them to me, and eventually ordered Antique Pink, and Rose Pink from Nordstrom (see rest of haul here).

 

 

Burberry Lip Velvet Antique Pink is a matte beige taupish pink which reminds me of vintage sepia toned photographs. It’s full coverage in one layer and gives your lips a rather romantic soft focus look.

Burberry Lip Velvet Rose Pink is a matte deep rose pink with full coverage in one layer. It’s a very sophisticated pink, and has the same soft focus effect that Antique Pink gives your lips.

Both Lip Velvets are long wearing, apply silkily, and feel feather light on the lips. Matte lipstick perfection.
