Burberry Primrose Hill Pink Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a brightened warm pink that borders on pink-coral. Make Up For Ever Folk is slightly more coral. MAC Watch Me Simmer is brighter, slightly less pink. NYX Haute Melon is a bit more orange but has a similar look. Guerlain Nahema is much more coral. MAC Ultra Darling is slightly redder.  This kind of shade is flattering on both warmer and cooler skin tones, because it doesn’t have a lot of orange or coral in it.

Burberry’s Lip Cover formula is supposed to be hydrating, yield full color coverage, and feel lightweight against the lip.  It’s lovely during application–soft, smooth, which enables it to glide on effortlessly without pulling or tugging at the lips.  It also is able to deliver nearly opaque color coverage in a single pass; you don’t have to go back and forth with this shade.  The creamy consistency is very lightweight, though, and it gives the finish a luminous quality that makes lips look fuller.  I love how hydrating the formula is–my lips always feel good even after this has worn off four hours or so later.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Are you not doing swatches in natural lighting anymore? I wish you would, because direct flash really washes the color out and when I go in person to check out the shades I see on here, they turn out to be much darker.

These are older swatches – unfortunately, if I went back and re-did everything I already spent hours on (I have about 6000 unedited photos I’ve taken of products I have tested that need to be reviewed), I’d never ever get through what I’d like to post! I only just moved into a place where I have room to take swatches in studio lighting (not natural lighting, just FYI, so there is no confusion! :)).

You take HOURS to take PICTURES? ……………………………….o.o……………………………………………………………………………………

Don’t be sorry – you do an AMAZING job!! It is incredibly time consuming to get those pictures done and blog posts written, I don’t seriously think anyone can gripe about the amount of time you spend getting everything perfect!

Jessica Avatar

I for one appreciate every minute you take to do these reviews! I always check here first before I buy my make up. Thanks Christine! 🙂

Christine, your pictures and swatches are the best on the internet. You are NOT too slow!! Please don’t feel like you need to re-take any pictures, these are amazing too! Thanks for all your hard work, it is deeply appreciated.

Christine Avatar

Thank you, Gen! 🙂 I always want to – like whenever there is a “big” change, I want to re-do everything, but I KNOW that I can’t. It’s like a buffet — I photograph/swatch more products than I can actually test and review, so I’m perpetually behind. Can’t let myself do things like re-takes when it’ll just put me behind further, LOL. I am working so hard to get through the backlog right now!

I’m amazed at how quickly you move christine! I don’t have a blog, but when using photos for presentations, it takes me much longer than a half an hour per photo–I don’t know how you do it but I DEFINITELY appreciate it! 🙂 P.s. I was amazed that even though it’s a bright shade in the tube, it was a perfect MLBB shade on you! 🙂

You are AMAZING, Christine!!! We totally appreciate your hard work. It’s come to the point with me that I often don’t buy anything unless I see a swatch of it on your site. If I do go ahead and buy it, it is then only because I TRULY like it and have tested it in person. Also, I have bought lip colors — Emotive from Chanel, for instance — that is so dark on me (but I love). Then, I check out your swatch and see how it compares to others and *wow* it doesn’t look that dark on you! Your swatches have helped me truly gauge how something might look on me. That’s given me confidence to judge colors better for me (and spend less money!!) and even buy makeup online.

I REALLY appreciate all your hardwork!!! You are the best!

I LOVE that the love it or leave it buttons are back. Also, can I put a request in that you review Nars’ new tinted moisturizer? Thanks for all you do – I love this blog so much and I now have two drawers of makeup to prove it.

Christine Avatar

They are just temporary but will probably be removed, unfortunately – we were trying to rush it and get something for readers while we work on rebuilding it from scratch, but I have to deactivate it in order to approve and reply to comments – it is wreaking havoc on the site since we installed it. I don’t know if it’s something we can fix. We will spend a few more hours on it, but I’m sorry – it is likely going away again! Sorry again! 🙁

This is gorgeous. Even though I think it will look redder on me (I have olive undertones) I want this shade badly! Thanks for the review Christine 🙂

Primrose Hill looks lovely on you Christine. BTW, do you remember the blush you were wearing?

Your blog is a delight to read. And I know it’s not something you just throw together, with photos and comments, and comparisons. It’s astounding that you make comparisons! It certainly benefits all the readers because you have a great command of the cosmetics industry. Your in-depth reports, recordings, swatches, and PHOTOS are all appreciated, regardless of low light, high light, flash, no flash. Don’t be put off by a tiny minority of readers who post petty criticism. I for one, and scores of many readers, appreciate your wonderful work. 🙂 Big hug.

Gorgeous color with just the right amount of shine. It is a nice pinkish coral color which I have been searching for to wear this Spring and Summer. But…at $30 a tube, it will never be in my budget. Too bad!

Oh God, seems like all Burberry lipsticks are simply amazing! At least they are not limited edition, so I can get my hands on them anytime 🙂

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
