Burberry Beauty Liquid Lip Velvet Review – The Liquid Lip Velvet formula is clear as having “rich pigment, smooth request” and a “velvet finish that continues up to eight hours” that is “non-drying.” Overall, the formula is eccentric for those who want the variability of a liquid product without the drying aspect of more traditional liquid lipsticks while not forgoing wear time.
Burberry Beauty Liquid Lip Velvet Review – Description
The procedure does not dry down completely, so there will be a transfer, and then the product is so pigmented that the colour continues for a while. We” ve found the colours to wear between six and eight hours and easily survive a solid meal. The liquid lipstick has a smooth, velvety consistency that is almost weightless, is never drying and is always comfortable to wear. A pleasant surprise was that the formula was unscented (with no discernible taste either), which is not the norm with Burberry’s products.
This month Burberry launches a new lip formula called Liquid Lip Velvet. There are 14 shades total with full opaque creamy coverage in bold matte colours. They have a lightweight whipped texture that covers the lip flawlessly and beautifully. The formula is exquisite, especially given that these are full coverage and very matte.
We have ordered five shades sight unseen based on online stock swatches. In the past, we’ve been smitten with a number of the neutrals and nudes from Burberry, as they are typically well-executed and highly flattering. We had high hopes for these as they looked perfect in the tubes!
The Liquid Lip Velvet formula is excellent – it’s unscented, smooth, and offers flawless coverage. For a matte liquid lip product, it’s everything that we could dream of. However, we found the shades we picked lacking. Something was missing in each of the colours we tested. They looked too light, dusty, faded or did not have the right undertone for olive skin.
Since they are matte, you must need a smooth lip surface; otherwise, flakes or dry patches will be emphasized. They are also not transfer-resistant. The light, airy whipped texture makes these super comfortable to wear, but once on the lips, they don’t set or stick like the ones from Anastasia Beverly Hills or Kat Von D. As long as you don’t touch your lips, though, they last remarkably well and don’t slide or bleed.
Swatches, without flash:
- Light Nude is a pale, light beige cream
- Fawn Rose is a dusty, light cool neutral rose pink
- Primrose is a bright blue-based pink
- Dark rosewood is a brownish rose
- Fawn is a brown nude tan
Besides the lasting pigment, the nice thing is that these Liquid Lip Velvets will never dry your lips. If you want to know some similar dupes, We feel like Buxom Widly Whipped Liquid Lipstick and Too Faced Melted Liquified Lipstick are slightly similar
Burberry Beauty Liquid Lip Velvet Review – Conclusion
Burberry Beauty Liquid Lip Velvet Review – we have a love-hate with these. The formula is quite good, and we love how comfortable they feel on the lips. As much as we love the long-lasting power of traditional liquid lipsticks. Sometimes the way they dry down doesn’t feel all that great. The Burberry Liquid Lip Velvets feel like cashmere on the lips. We’ve bummed the colours didn’t work as we had hoped.
Our colouring for our skin tone right now makes it so that the ones we picked are unflattering, flat and dusty-looking on my skin. Based on the online stock photos, we would have found the darker shades like Oxblood or Bright Plum more flattering on my olive-yellow skin. If I add a soft rose or pink lip liner, we can pull off the shadows of Fawn Rose and Dark Rosewood with some tweaking.
You can find the Burberry Liquid Lip Velvet online. We have one more liquid lipstick review before doing a roundup and comparing the liquid lipsticks we’ve tested. Do you have a favourite formula? If you tried these, let me know what you thought!
