Sneak Peek: Burberry Lip Velvet Long Wear Lipstick Swatches

Guerrilla swatches of the new Burberry Lip Velvet Long Wear Lipsticks, below:

L-R: No. 306 Pink Amber, No. 305 Honey Suckle, No. 304 Redwood, No. 303 Antique Pink, No. 302 Peony Rose, No. 301 Pink Apricot 

L-R: No. 312 Hawthorne Berry, No. 311 Bright Poppy, No. 310 Military Red, No. 309 Fuchsia Pink, No. 308 Pink Azalea, No. 307 Rose Pink

I haven't made my purchase so I can't say for sure how they wear. I tried on Bright Poppy and Military Red in store and they both went on smooth and even. They didn't sap moisture from my lips (at least, in the twenty minutes I had them on) and I must say I am definitely intrigued. I've been wanting to invest in a good matte for some time, but haven't been able to settle on a formula. Military Red might come back with me by the end of this week.

These are now available at Saks Fifth Avenue New York. I would like to thank the wonderful folk at Burberry who allowed me to swatch up a storm at their counter. If you would like to speak to a Burberry specialist but don't have a counter near you, please give them a call at 212.940.2836, and tell them I sent you!


  1. OOOO glad to see Burberry is putting out a true matte formula! Wonder when/if this is coming out here so I can swatch them up!

  2. Pink Apricot shall be mine :) Thanks for the swatches!

  3. ohhh I can't wait to try these!!! I love burberry lippies and matte finishes are my favourite!! I hope they're just as wonderful as the Chanel Velvet Rouges

  4. I'll check these out next week when I go over to Bellevue, where the Burberry counter is. I'm hoping they will be paraben-free, but I'm not too optimistic.

  5. wow! look at all these gorgeous shades!!

  6. Wants! O can hardly wait to get one in November on my trip!

  7. I just caught this new lipstick on Norides and Saks and I'm excited about a matte Burberry lip! There are at least 5 to 6 shades I would love to own. Thrilled these swatches were available so quickly.

  8. I am late to this post - redwood looks awesome.

  9. WOW!! Great colours ad great swatches!!!

    I really cat choose which one is my favourite but I think 311 may be the one to come home with me first ;-)
