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.
