Hello Beautiful People!
I was recently sent a Burberry Kisses sample in the post and thought I’d write up my review about it.
I’m not a lipstick person at all. Every so often I convince myself that I’m some kind of expert makeup artist and can do the perfect lip, so I buy several lipsticks and then never end up using them because I’m actually really terrible at the whole thing!
As it’s springtime now, I’ve been experimenting with much lighter makeup styles, trying out nude palettes and barely-there faces as opposed to my usual go-to winged eyeliner and heavy brows solution. I want to try and create fresher looking faces for this spring/summer as I’m more confident with using makeup than last year and find it really exciting experimenting with new products (although makeup brushes are still beyond me, there’s so many??!!).
I really love this cute little sample though, it’s given me fresh hope with using lipsticks! The Burberry Kisses lipstick retails at around £25 in the full size and I’m definitely going to look into purchasing one soon because it’s so good! I got the shade ‘Nude Pink 5‘, which I thought would be perfect for an everyday spring pink look. I actually think it’s a little bright for me and I would have preferred a more nude base to the colour, however the colour is still really sweet and dainty.
The packaging on these lipsticks is beautiful, from the textured box to the engraved tube- I’m a sucker for packaging anyway so this is a giant plus for me. The actual texture of the lipstick itself is so creamy and very buildable, it’s easy to apply and very pigmented.
I’m giving this lipstick a definite 9/10 and am going to be on the lookout for the full sized product in other colours to complete my spring face!
Have a beautiful weekend!
