Burberry Pink Amber (306) Lip Velvet Review, Photos, Swatches

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.

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).

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!

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.

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? 🙂

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.

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!?

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.

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. 😀
