Burberry Pink Apricot Lip Velvet
Burberry Antique Pink (303) Lip Velvet

Burberry Antique Pink (303) Lip Velvet ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a pinky-brown with hints of beige. It’s a fairly neutral color, but if I had to pick, I’d say it leans warmer rather than cool, but I think it is rather neutral overall. Urban Decay Naked has a soft pink iridescence and is rosier overall. MAC Impressive is slightly darker and pinker. Bobbi Brown Heather Pink is a touch pinker. Guerlain Avarice is brighter, pinker. MAC Spice is very comparable. Bobbi Brown Uber Nude is browner–lacks the rosiness of this shade.

The formula is just creamy enough to enable a great glide-on consistency that deposits even, opaque color without pulling or tugging at the lip. Because it’s not too creamy, it doesn’t move around or feather, and it feels lightweight on. It was comfortable to wear and lightly hydrating over the five and a half hours it wore for. It comes in a square, matte-finish tube with a magnetic enclosure and has a sweet, fruity scent but no taste.

A+
The formula is excellent and delivers on every aspect Burberry promised: long-wearing, rich color, hydrating and has a comfortable-to-wear formula.

    Beautiful! It’s going on my wish list :). Thanks Christine!

  2. mirian

    This remind me of Chanel rouge coco mademoiselle ! very nice

  3. Christina

    yay thanks christine!!!

  4. Shu

    Thanks Christine for swatch! Looks good on you..:). Do you think the colour is similar to Mac Twig? Also do you plan to do a review on the colour Bright Poppy No 311? It looks like a nice colour and excited to know what you think of it.. :)

    • I don’t have Bright Poppy, unfortunately!

      I think Twig is a bit browner!

      • Michelle

        I have Bright Poppy and it actually goes on darker than you would think. Its looks sort of like a red bordering on berry (my skintone is about a MAC NC15 or Burberry Trench 201). Its definitely more muted than MAC Russian Red or Such Flare. Honestly I’m in love with the shade and it wears really well. I’d definitely give it a shot (plus if you order from Nordstrom they have free shipping and returns). Hope this helps.

    Very pretty :) Will you be reviewing more colors in this line? I’ve been looking at them at Nordstrom, but holding out on buying until I see a review.

  6. I think this might be a good nude for my skin tone! I’m loving the colour, it looks very moisturizing…I really want to try this!

  7. Kristen Bailey

    This is beautiful!

  8. Nice

    Hi Christine
    Are u going to review the foundations? That would be cool

  9. Lovely shade! Would work great as a natural pink for my skin tone!

  10. CHelsea

    This is really beautiful!!!
    I always want to find lipstick similar to this!

  11. Cat G

    I love colors like this. Then again, I basically love all Burberry lipsticks posted here!

  12. I always feel kinda excited when I see a product gets an A+! :) This is such a beautiful shade and so non-lipstick-looking when on. Looks like my version of “nude”.

  13. Totally gorgeous! I know I have a dupe of this.. the colour looks so familiar. I just can’t put my finger on it right now. I think it may be Tom Ford Pink Dusk.

  14. This is a gorgeous shade!!! A kind of MLBB shade for me, which is the closest to nude shades I can do. I also love Burberry formula, so I think I should get this one :)

    Btw, is Burberry now available in Sephora??? That would there will be more places to get it, and not only in the one counter where it’s available over here.

  15. helen

    I am absolutely LoVinG this entire line! Just when i thought you swatched the perfect shade, you swatch another!!
    I’m salivating at each swatch. How can i justify ALL of them (i’ll figure out a way, now just don’t tell VISA…)

  16. alex

    Hi Christine, thanks for the review.
    How would you compare this shade to chanel rouge coco mademoiselle? Are they dupes?
    Thank YOU :)

  17. blueraccoon

    *sigh* You keep reviewing the colors I don’t own, which then makes me say “Ooh, I think I should get that.” :P

  18. I LOVE pinky-brown lips and Burberry has put out another stunner, that’s for sure!!

  19. Jae

    Oooohhhh, this looks like a shade that could be MLBB!! I’m going to have to try it! =) Thanks for the awesome swatches, Christine! =)

  20. Veronica

    I think I have found my perfect dark pink with this one. <3 *sigh* Burberry, you are going to kill my wallet this year.

  21. VickyM

    I want it :( , I need some Burberry things ASAP it´s the only brand I have been looking for that is not available to me.

  22. Liz

    As soon as I saw it in the tube, I knew it would look great on you. And I was right, it does.

  23. Alison

    Ahh, Burberry. You’ve really got to love it when a brand is well-edited and consistent with its line – and delivers on its promises!

  24. Andrea

    I want this with the force of a thousand suns.

  25. Esther

    OMG christine i was just checking this out at the beauty hall today and wished to myself you had reviewed this so you could help me decide!! :P

  26. I am loving this color! It looks beautiful on you Christine!

  27. Leeza

    This reminds me a lot of Revlon’s Colorstay lipstick in Rosy Nude- discontinued recently but still my HG go-to nude lipstick <3
