Bright Crimson

Burberry Bright Crimson Liquid Lip VelvetBurberry Bright Crimson Liquid Lip Velvet ($34.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had rich, opaque pigmentation with a smooth, cream-mousse hybrid consistency that was easy to spread across the lips. Initially, it seemed more white-based and almost chalky, but after a few minutes, it seemed to transform and looked smooth, even, and lush on the lips. The color wore well for six and a half hours, left a stain behind, and was neither drying nor hydrating.

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.

Military Red

Burberry Military Red Liquid Lip VelvetBurberry Military Red Liquid Lip Velvet ($34.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a vibrant, medium red with neutral undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff with a smooth, even coverage. The consistency was velvety, mousse-like but still a little more emollient than other shades in the range (it even appeared glossier after applied). There was a bit of color that pulled into my lip lines, but it was bright enough that it was hard to notice from a normal viewing distance. This shade wore well for seven and a half hours and left a stain behind. It was neither drying nor hydrating.

Bright Crimson just made me audibly SQUEEE!!! My poor neighbor….NOT! He deserves it with all his power drilling and hammering after midnight or early in the morning.?
Well, I probably just woke him up!!! ?

Military Red is also gorg, but I’ve got a ton of reds to use up as is.

Just ordered The Brilliant Violet and Oxblood! Unfortunately, both are backordered at Nordstrom until next month! I can wait, tho!

I’m really trying to not cave but it’s seriously getting harder and harder! Aside from the vanity worthy packaging, I’m in love with the formula and the colour selection available so far!

So excited that these are good and scent free. I picked up a le marc yesterday and I love it. So soft, so adult lol if that makes sense. I feel like these are the same so I’ll def be picking up a color

Let me know if you like these as well, Mo! I was pleasantly surprised these were unscented as Burberry usually has fragrance in their lip products!

bright crimson is lovely – reminds me of a Givency lipstick, Rose Dressing. Alas I’ve never met a liquid lipstick I like; i feel like they just suck the moisture out of my lips. but i think i’ll try this one.
