Burberry Kisses *

I was kindly nominated to receive two different shades of Burberry Kisses, Burberry's new buildable and hydrating lipstick. I was really impressed with the samples so I just had to blog about it! 


This spring, Burberry has introduced a new collection of lipsticks, Burberry Kisses. The collection has 28 shades of moisturising but buildable lipsticks which allow you to choose the intensity of colour on your lips as well as giving you up to six hours of hydration. The formula is enriched with lavender, green tea and rosehip extracts which give the lipsticks a really natural smell and very lightweight feel on the lips. 


Firstly, the lipstick samples came packaged in a white box, which when opened, showed all the different samples and your boxed lipstick. The lipstick itself is then boxed in a textured cream box which tells you your sample shade. And then the lipstick is in Burberry's typical packaging, a dark metallic silver magnetic box (I don't know what you'd call the outside of a lipstick? haha) with their brands usual check pattern, on both the box and the lipstick bullet. I reeeaaally like how it was all put together! 


 I received the shades 'Sepia No. 85' and 'Nude Pink No. 05' which are both quite natural pink toned colours. The 'Sepia' one is more of a darker pink, but on the lips gives that "your lips but better" kind of colour. I really like this one! And the 'Nude Pink' is a pale pinky tone which when on looks like a tinted lip gloss, but less glossy, if that makes any sense! It reminds me of a Kylie Jenner type nudey-pink tone.


When on, the lipsticks feel like a lip balm. I really like this as it doesn't feel heavy or sticky but still look like a lipstick. I was also a bit sceptical about whether they are actually bulidable as I thought they may be a bit too sheer, but they are! My darker shade (Sepia No.85)  is definitely buildable, in which it looks like a tinted lip balm with one coat, and a full on lipstick with 3 coats. I love the look of it when I have 3 coats! And the lighter one (Nude Pink No.05)  is less buildable, but still is. I find that it looks sheer, and sticks to the dryer parts of my lips, however with more than one coat, it starts to look really nice. 


Burberry Kisses are available online here, aswell as in stores now. They are £25 each with free shipping and returns to the UK. They are also available in certain department stores such as selected Debenhams and Fenwicks.
