Burberry Pink Apricot Lip Velvet
Burberry Pink Amber (306) Lip Velvet

Burberry Pink Amber (306) Lip Velvet ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark, pink-coral with brightness that’s vibrant without being neon or too intimidating. It has warm undertones, but it doesn’t turn orange. Chanel Enjouee is pinker. Guerlain Gracy is brighter, pinker. Guerlain Chamade is a smidgen pinker, and it has a glossier finish (it looks a bit different on). Guerlain Bal de Mai has gold shimmer. Chanel Flamboyante is redder. Burberry Blush is more muted, less vibrant, and pinker.

The new Lip Velvet formula is touted as long-wearing, having a velvet-matte finish, comfortable to wear, and providing hydration while worn.  It’s one of the most comfortable matte formulas I’ve come across.  Pink Amber wore for six and a half hours, and it was comfortable the entire time and never left my lips feeling dry.  There’s a perfect amount of glide in the consistency; it has a good base that it glides on lips and deposits an even amount of color without pulling or tugging.  It doesn’t feel thick or heavy on, so it doesn’t move around easily, but it doesn’t feel like it’s clinging on, either.  It has a sweet, fruity scent but no taste.

    So pretty. I just wish Sephora carries Burberry.

    • Aww! :( I actually prefer Nordstrom, only because of their customer service. They also seem to get the new beauty products a little earlier than Sephora (from my experience).

      • Helen

        I love Nordstorm too! I love the products they carry and their customer service. Unfortunately we don’t have one in Canada until 2013! Can’t wait!

        • 2013 is right around the corner – yay!!

        • Bronwyn

          We’re getting a Nordstrom in Canada? Joys!
          Where is it going to be?

          Just fair warning, a Nordstrom’s in town doesn’t ensure a Burberry counter. :( Ours doesn’t have one, and the only one we did have – Saks Fifth Avenue – shut down a year ago. It’s was a bit of a surprise to hear they didn’t have one, since they have all of the other major high end brands available in store.

    Ah it’s so beautiful! I actually ordered no. 307 Rose Pink from the velvet line and I can’t wait to receive it :).

    Wow, it looks absolutely fabulous on you! o_O

    I’m waiting for the review of Pink Azalea…I hope coming soon :)

  5. i love burberry lip velvet but i hate this orange color.can u do a review about pink azalea ?

  6. Miss Molly

    I like it on you! Your buy it link says Sephora, but takes you to Nordstrom.

  7. stunning color! I imagine it’d be a bit pinker on my lips than on yours. I’ve heard great things about the velvet formula. Gotta check them out! You look beautiful, btw xx

    This reminds me of MAC Hibiscus.

  9. Looks pretty! And the texture looks superb.

  10. Avatar of Rania Rania

    As I have warm tones, I love that it has a bit of orange, it’s a very sweet colour, indeed. Do you think I could wear it with a coral blush?

  11. 30$ is pretty much as for a lipstick, but I think I will make myself a little Xmas present :)

  12. Love this formula so much!

  13. Avatar of rebecca blueraccoon

    I ended up getting 307, Rose Pink, instead of this one, and now I’m wondering if I should have gotten this one instead. Maybe in addition to? :)

  14. Liz

    That looks very flattering on you.

  15. Sabrina

    I got a mini version of this lipstick as a gift and I will definitely be buying a full size! It is as amazing as you say, and even pulls a bit orangey on me. I LOVE IT.

  16. Beautiful colour and great shade !!!

  17. Avatar of Gabby Gabby

    AAHHHHH!! I’ve been looking for a lipstick in this exact same shade for months now! I MUST HAVE THIS!!
    Why must I live in a place where they don’t sell this!?

  18. BREATHTAKING color! It looks really gorgeous with your skin tone too, Christine! I swear, Burberry can do NO wrong, in my eyes!! :D

  19. Avatar of Barbara Barbara

    Reminds me of Lancome’s Corset lipstick. Gorgeous.

  20. Ellen

    Ooooh nooooo Christine!
    Now I NEED this!!!
    I’m already overbudget x)

  21. Mimi

    I would splurge on this. This can definitely be my new HG (the old one was an LE lipstick that I’m almost out of). I love that we have almost the same skintone because I can definitely see how, when and where this could work just by seeing it on you. It would be perfect for my type of workplace, day to day and even special events with the right eye makeup.

    So yeah… I’m SOLD!

    P.S. The fact that Nordstrom sells it is even better, their costumer service does blow my mind.

  22. Avatar of Veronica Veronica

    These warm pinky corals are a bit much for my cool skin (it looks lovely on you, though!), but I am loving the look of this formula. I’ve been looking for a good matte pink for a long time, so I’ll have to look through some of their other shades to see if they have anything that’ll work for me. :D

    Beautiful! Finish looks so smooth!

    Thank you!
