Burberry Bright Poppy (311) Lip Velvet
Burberry Bright Poppy (311) Lip Velvet

Burberry Bright Poppy (311) Lip Velvet ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deepened, bold berry-red with a matte finish. MAC Heaux is similar, slightly brighter. Guerlain Liu is redder. MAC Rebel is slightly more berry-hued. MAC Lush Life is lighter. Guerlain Lou-Ling is slightly lighter. Burberry Bright Plum is a bit darker and redder. See comparison swatches.

It has semi-opaque color, but there’s a sheerness to it that you can tell by how my lip freckle comes through. The consistency is lightly creamy, so the lipstick applied evenly and smoothly without dragging along the lips, but it’s not too thick or heavy, and it doesn’t bleed or feather. It lasted for nearly seven hours and left a light stain behind, and it felt moderately hydrating while worn and for a couple of hours after it wore away. The finish on this isn’t quite as immaculate as other Lip Velvets, though, even if the lipstick is still quite good–it is inevitably not quite as impressive!

    That colour is beautiful. I have been interested in this collection since the first little preview and I’m pretty sure I’ll be making my first Burberry purchases soon. Can’t wait to see how the Oxblood lip colours will look.

    Ooh this is lovely! I recently got 2 Burberry lipsticks, Hawthorn Berry lip velvet and Deep Burgundy lip cover, I adore both! Hawthorn Berry lasts an extremely long time, I will have to look into Bright Poppy as well! The more I explore Burberry cosmetics, the more I fall in love with them, I can’t wait for the fall collection!

  3. Love this! It makes me ready for autumn/winter.

    This is one of those colours that i would throw on without eye makeup for just a pop of colour.
    Did you see that??? just talked myself into buying yet another red lipstick…..

  5. Way too dark for me, but you look fantastic with a shade like this :-)

  6. Ooooh, another Burberry lipstick to add to my list! They have a fantastic selection of colors. I wish there was a counter closer to me!

    Christine, how would you compare this finish to the NARS Velvet Matte lip pencils?

    • I think they’re both very similar – very matte – but this probably starts off slightly less flat matte compared to the Velvet Mattes.

  8. Beka

    I’m so glad you reviewed this. I bought it when it first came out, but had to return it. It was splotchy, dry, and did not apply smoothly at all. It made me not want to try other burberry lip products. But, if this shade didn’t perform as well as others, I might give it a go-especially when the fall colors come out. Also, thanks for the dupes because the color of this lipstick is gorgeous!

    • No problem, Beka! I didn’t have the same type of problems, but it was slightly less impressive than a lot of the other shades I’ve tried, so hopefully one of the others works better for you!

    Hey Christine. That color looks amazing on you. I own MAC Rebel and love it. What do you have on your eyes? What blue is that?

  10. xamyx

    I love the color it appears in the tube, but as usual, it goes on *much* different. At least Burberry lets the consumer know what to expect with a specific shade name, and not some ambiguous pun, or random name.

  11. This shade looks amazing and really good on you. I have never tried the Burberry Line. I think this may be my first purchase. Love that you paired it with a blue eyeliner!

  12. VickyM

    Christine you look great, this color is very pretty on you :D . This would be too dark for me but I really want a Burberry product, yet again I´m tortured by this brand that we don´t have here, we only have perfumes…

  13. sarah

    This is very pretty, but the name is all wrong to me. Poppies are my favorite flowers and they make me think of bright orangey reds. Either way, this a beautiful fall color.

    I am so happy to hear this is a dupe for Heaux! Thanks Christine!

  15. love this color. it make me beautiful for all event :)
