Burberry Blush Lipstick
Burberry Blush Lipstick

Burberry Blush (09) Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a pretty-in-pink touched by coral with very subtle gold micro-shimmer and mostly opaque color coverage.   It has a lovely creamy texture and a slightly glossy look. I find Burberry’s formula fairling moisturizing and long-wearing–about four hours with this shade–and comfortable to wear.

I think this is an incredibly flattering shade–it’s not too warm or cool, it’s just that right shade that will work for a variety of skin tones.   On those with pinker lips, it will turn a beautiful shade of rose, and on my lips, that hint of coral seems to strengthen than when just swatched on the skin.  The lipstick is rose-scented, though, so those with sensitive sniffers beware! I don’t really sense any taste, though. :)

  • Product: 29/30
  • Value: 8/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 4/5

RECOMMENDATION: Burberry’s new lipsticks are a nice option for those with drier or more needy lips, because the formula wears well without drying lips out.  This particular shade will complement a lot of skin tones because of its more neutral undertones.

    I’ve never heard of this brand, but that’s a gorgeous colour and very wearable

      Burberry is a designer brand known for their iconic plaid print. I think.

      • Dawn

        Oh yes, forgot about that. I know about Burberry check and can’t stand it – so chavvy lol. Didn’t know they did cosmetics so didn’t make the association

  2. Lovely colour, looks very good on you! 😀

    Wow, I really like it! It’s just that it’s almost my natural lipcolor, because my lips are quite pigmented..

  6. I want it! Hahaha, maybe a Crosswires dupe, right??

  7. It looks so pretty!

  8. Madilynn

    This looks really good on you! I think it should be your staple color.

  9. This is such a sensible colour. I think every woman should have a colour like this in her lipstick collection because it really is one of those shades that could do no wrong.

  14. Laura

    very nice, lovely shade

  15. Eileen

    That is, indeed, a lovely color on you. I love the quality of Burberry’s lipstick, but I hate the case it comes in. I’m not a big fan of the needlessly large, sharp angled case. The lipstick is beautiful on the lips, but the case is uncomfortable in the hand.

  16. Leea

    It looks very flattering on you! :) A lovely shade.

  17. Alexis

    What a pretty everyday work color.

  18. Jessica

  19. Evanna

    Oh God, this is lovely! I’ll need to investigate on one…

  20. Opheliana

    Damn, I want their make up, but I can’t find anywhere to buy them in sweden.

  21. Jennifer

    LOVE This!
    Might have to splurge on this.

    Is there a MAC L/S dupe?

  22. lolo

    A dupe for this is MAC See Sheer or Viva Glam Cyndi.
    Don’t waste your money on overpriced lipstick!!

    • Neither of those look like this on me, just a heads up! See Sheer is more orange, Cyndi is redder!

    • Jennifer

      Thanks. I was thinking right now maybe MAC’s Resolutely Red Lipstick LE from the High Def collection. I have that… On the swatches they look pretty matched up on screen… hmm..

    I just sent for “Blush” 09 at Nordstrom. Have Heather Rose, Dusty Rose, and Rosewood. I am surprised at how much I enjoy this lipstick. I wish the case were smaller, but it’s fun to drop the cap on the tube and watch it twist into place. The lipstick is delightful. Thanks for the beautiful swatches!
