Here is Pink Heather Lip Mist, part of the Burberry Beauty Iconic Nudes Summer 2012 collection.
I was given to understand that the Lip Mist range, though melty-smooth on the lips, isn’t very tenacious and tends to go soft, becoming smooshy in the tube. I found this to be untrue for this lipstick: The bullet of my press piece is sturdy and does not give way when I applied pressure to it; neither does it soften in the tube.
Heather Pink is a medium muted pink that is mostly cool but pulls a touch warm on me (it has definite brown tones when swiped on a piece of tissue paper). Contrary to its ‘sheer’ label, it offers more than a wisp of colour, building up in opacity quite easily. It is rather lasting too.
As you can see from the photo, it has a natural-looking shine. It’s interesting to me, as the lipstick itself looks somewhat matte. I believe the lustre is activated by the heat from my lips. On its own, it makes a good lipstick for neutral or smokey eyes. I can’t wear it without any eye makeup, though – I’d look washed out.
Lancôme L’Absolu Crème de Brillance in 220 Beige Tropique is the perfect gloss complement to this lipstick.
It not only adds a lovely shine, it also brings out its pinkness.
In Singapore, this lipstick retails at S$43.
