Burberry Hibiscus Lip Glow Natural Lipgloss
Burberry Hibiscus Lip Glow Natural Lipgloss

Burberry Hibiscus Lip Glow Natural Lipgloss< ($27.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a medium-dark fuchsia pink with just the faintest hint of white micro-shimmer (you really have to look hard to physically see the shimmer!). Dolce & Gabbana Vibrant is richer, pinker, more opaque. MAC Indigo Pink is darker, more opaque. MAC Real Posh is plummier. NARS Bougainville is redder, more opaque, and darker. MAC Radiant Jewels has more shimmer and appears brighter.

Hibiscus has semi-opaque color coverage–it changed my natural lip color significantly, but there was still a lot of my natural lip peeking through. It has a lovely glossy shine that gives lips a fuller look. Burberry’s Lip Glow formula is supposed to be comfortable, reflective, hydrating, and yields sheerer color. The formula is non-sticky, medium in thickness, and feels a little gel-like on the lips (that’s a compliment!). It feels comfortable to wear, and it’s somewhat hydrating. My lips feel good post-wear, but I do need lip balm after an hour or two. It is floral-scented, though, and it’s not subtle–not unpleasant generally speaking, but if you’re sensitive to scents, this may be too much. Hibiscus wore for three and a half hours.

I like the way it feels on lips the most--it's comfortable, slick, and does impart some moisture during the three and a half hours it lasts. There is a smidgen of settling into lip lines but isn't noticeable from a normal viewing distance.
