Burberry Kisses Hydrating Lip Color Lipstick in "No.113 Union Red": Review and Swatches
Last month I checked out the new Burberry Beauty counter that opened at The Hudson Bay Richmond Centre. After getting a glimpse of the beautiful new setup and all the Burberry makeup releases, I took home one of the new Burberry Kisses Hydrating Lip Color Lipstick ($36 CAD). Available in 22 new shades, this new line features a buildable formulation: one "kiss" provides a sheer wash of color while two or three "kisses" give a more intense, long-lasting color.

Packaging:
The Burberry Kisses Lipstick comes in a reflective gunmetal rectangular case. The cap and the lipstick itself is etched with the classic Burberry tartan pattern. The overall feel is very classic yet modern, very fitting to the Burberry allure. Additionally, the cap shuts with a magnetic closure, super snazzy, perfect for application on the go.

Formulation:
The Burberry Kisses lipstick features a very slick, lightweight, and moisturizing formulation. No.113 Union Red is a bright brick red with a beautiful natural sheen. The color is quite saturated, even just one coat provides quite a bit of color. However, because the formulation is so creamy and slick, it doesn't cling nicely to the lips and thus will transfer and fade with eating and drinking. So it's probably best to keep it handy for touch-ups.

Overall:
No.113 Union Red is such a gorgeous color! It's a unique red that's totally up my alley. The formulation of the Burberry Kisses is indeed very hydrating and comfortable but the wear isn't too impressive. However, the gorgeous packaging pretty much makes it irresistible. 

Availability:
The Burberry Beauty line is available at Nordstrom Chinook Centre, The Bay Richmond Centre, online at Burberry, and Burberry Boutiques at Vancouver and Toronto.
