Review | Burberry Beauty Lip Mist Natural Sheer Lipstick in No. 210 Pink Heather

August 3, 2012

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.

      Thanks, Meryl.

      It looks pinker than it does in the tube!
