Burberry Bright Plum (15) Lip Cover Lipstick
Burberry Bright Plum (15) Lip Cover Lipstick

Burberry Bright Plum (15) Lip Cover Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep, berry wine with cool, pink undertones and a luminous finish. MAC Rebel is more berry, less red. NARS Palais Royal is redder. NARS Valparaiso is lighter, less red. MAC Red Dwarf is lighter, pinker. MAC Endless Drama is browner. MAC What Joy is darker. Guerlain Gigolo is a bit darker, less berry-hued. Guerlain Bee is purpler, lighter. Chanel L’Impatiente is darker. See comparison swatches here.

Burberry’s lipstick formula is always a joy to test, because it’s very consistent (which always makes it easier!) in quality: long-wearing, lightly hydrating, rich color, and is comfortable to wear. Bright Plum is mostly opaque with rich, even color that applies evenly and smoothly. The consistency of the lipstick is lightly creamy, so it glides across lips without pulling or tugging, but it’s not so slippery that it will bleed or feather while it’s worn. With this shade, it lasted six and a half hours rather well, and then it started to fade and left behind a strong stain for another hour or so. It does have a slight floral scent but no discernible taste.

  11. I always enjoy seeing reviews for Burberry lip products. You can just SEE the quality of the lipstick based on the swatches. They are so smooth and rich and that natural shine is gorgeous!

  12. Oh My… this looks like it’s the perfect lipcolor for me! Unfortunately this shade isn’t available in the german Burberry Online Store. :(

    This reminds me a bit of Guerlain L’Heure Bleue, at least the way it looks on me. Hopefully that will be enough to convince me that I don’t NEED it…

  16. Lauren

    Love the color, but I’m way too pale to pull it off well, IMO.

  17. This is such a pretty color.

  18. What a gorgeous shade, both in the tube and on you, Christine! Lemming for this and the blush on your cheeks. Oh, dear! :D

  19. Alice

    What a gorgeous color! I wish Burberry lipsticks didn’t have such a stong scent, I cannot wear them.

  20. stacey

    The quality is there….for some reason Burberry is not my cup of tea.

  21. muby83

    Christine, is this similar to Tom Ford’s violet fatale?

  22. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of raloves Ra

    It looks much more sophisticated than I expected.

    I know this post is a few months old, but I’m still debating on whether I need to pick it up or not! Such a lovely color.
