Light Nude (01)

Burberry Light Nude (01) Liquid Lip Velvet ($34.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is light peach with warm undertones and a cream finish. The consistency was smooth, more mousse-like so there was more body to the product but never felt heavy on the lips. This shade was one that I found more difficult to apply along the edges, possibly due to the paler base; it made me want to reach for a liner just to get a better edge. It had nearly opaque color coverage that applied evenly. The color wore well for five hours and was neither drying nor hydrating, but I had color pull into my lip lines after three and a half hours of wear.

The Liquid Lip Velvet formula is described as having “rich pigment, smooth application” and a “velvet finish that lasts up to eight hours” that is “non-drying.” Overall, the formula is fantastic for those who want the fluidity of a liquid product without the drying aspect of more traditional liquid lipsticks while not sacrificing wear time. The formula does not dry down completely, so there will be transfer, but the product is so pigmented that the color lasts awhile. I’ve found the colors to wear between six and eight hours and easily survive a solid meal. The liquid lipstick has a smooth, velvety consistency that is almost weightless (I forget I’m wearing it) that was never drying and always comfortable to wear. A pleasant surprise was that the formula was unscented (with no discernible taste either), which is not the norm with Burberry’s products.

Dior Color Gradation Collection for Spring 2017

Dior Color Gradation Collection for Spring 2017

Peter Philips’ new makeup collection for Dior Beauty, “Colour Gradation,” is an inspired take on the perpetual movement of nature, fueled by the ephemeral colors that blossom in spring. Philips’ carefully selected color palette features many playful shade variations—from fresh blues to juicy pinks—which can be worn alone or layered to softly structure the face.

The rich history of the House of Dior is apparent throughout the spring 2017 “Colour Gradation” collection. From the iconic plissé pattern featured in the new blush and eye palettes, to the avant-garde shades of crisp lemon, deep turquoise, and intense pink of the new nail shades, each product is decidedly Dior. Cheeks glow with a soft flush, while eyes build in shade and color. Intense hues mix with subtle highlights for a perfect balance. The shades and textures seem to move across the face with the grace of a couture gown.
