Nude Beige (201)

Burberry Nude Beige (201) Kisses Sheer Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a soft peach with warm, orange undertones and a creamy, lightly glossy finish. It had buildable coverage from sheer to medium, but it didn’t get much more opaque than that. The texture felt smooth, lightweight, and creamy enough to go on without feeling too slippery, but this shade slipped into all of my lip lines and emphasized my lip texture. It lasted for two and a half hours on me but was, at least, hydrating.

Formula Overview

$34.00/0.11 oz. - $309.09 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "buildable colour" with a "satin finish" and "continuous hydration." They have medium, buildable coverage with some shades having more semi-opaque, buildable coverage. I found that "a layer" depended on the shade, as some seemed to go on more heavily--and looked more like a cream finish--and others were more emollient, a bit thinner, and translucent and had more of a stained-like finish. The brand recommended "two to three" layers for more "intense depth and vibrancy." For all swatches, I applied two layers, and in each shade's respective review, you'll find the coverage range described. Generally speaking, though, they definitely were ultra-sheer in one layer; two layers was only needed for more opaque coverage with most shades.

The consistency was more emollient with noticeable slip, which made it easy to apply across my lips, but they can feel like they're melting as you apply. In my experience, this can lead to over-applying product, so it's just something I'm more aware of while applying this type of formula to ensure that I don't layer on too much product. Most shades applied evenly, but a fair number of them had slight settling--the kind that I can see in the close-up photos but not so much just looking in the mirror--to more noticeable settling in my lip lines due to how much slip the formula had. The slip made them comfortable, like a juicy lip balm, and the hydration was there throughout wear and my lips didn't feel dry or tight for hours after the color had worn off. They lasted between three and five hours on me with some of the richer, deeper hues leaving behind subtle stains.

There wasn't any noticeable scent or taste. Burberry's lipstick cases close magnetically, which I've found keeps the caps on very securely and ensures that it always closes when you put the cap back on!

Cabana

Bobbi Brown Cabana Crushed Lip Color ($24.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark coral-orange with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had buildable pigmentation from semi-opaque to mostly opaque (two layers). The texture was lightweight, thin, and waxy, though it didn’t feel clingy and still had a subtle sheen to it after the initial application. It applied evenly, but it could have been a bit kinder to my lip texture as it seemed to emphasize imperfections just slightly. The color stayed on well for five hours and was lightly moisturizing while worn.

Formula Overview

$29.00/0.11 oz. - $263.64 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "high color payoff" with a "blotted-down stain effect" that "glides on comfortably" and keeps lips "hydrated." It's also supposed to be long-wearing and is buildable from "blotted-down" in one layer to "intense color payoff" in two to three layers. The majority of the shades in the range have medium to semi-opaque coverage in one layer, and they were buildable from there with two to three layers. A few shades applied less evenly than others, though most went on well enough.

The consistency was more like a firmer, harder balm, as it glided easily across my lips, but it didn't feel wet, emollient, or oily, more waxy like a traditional lipstick but very lightweight. Some shades pulled into my lip lines and a few emphasized my natural lip texture, while others were more smoothing and flattering in finish/texture. The wear typically lasted between three and six hours with some of the richer/darker shades leaving subtle stains behind. The formula was more non-drying to lightly hydrating, but it wasn't hydrating enough that I'd put it in that category (hydrating lipstick). They had a faint, lemon-meets-wax scent that sometimes wasn't noticeable at all (depended on the shade).

All swatches are with two layers.

Orchid Pink (213)

Burberry Orchid Pink (213) Kisses Sheer Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a soft, light-medium pink with warmer undertones and a pearly sheen. The color coverage built from semi-sheer to medium (two layers). The lipstick had a lightly creamy, balm-like consistency that melted as I glided it across my lips, and it deposited even coverage, despite having a moderate amount of slip. It didn’t smooth out my lip lines as nicely as some shades have in the range, and there was a touch of product that sat in my deeper lip lines in the close-up photo but that I couldn’t see in person. This shade lasted well for four hours and was moisturizing while worn.

The formula is supposed to have "buildable colour" with a "satin finish" and "continuous hydration." They have medium, buildable coverage with some shades having more semi-opaque, buildable coverage.

Sazan Nude

Bobbi Brown Sazan Nude Crushed Lip Color ($24.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a light-medium beige with warmer undertones and a satin finish. It had medium coverage that was buildable to mostly opaque pigmentation in two layers, which was how the formula was designed. The lipstick had a lightweight, smooth, lightly waxy consistency that glided across my lips but never felt slippery or “wet” on. The color went on evenly and didn’t settle noticeably into my lip lines, just in the close-ups. It did seem to apply lighter than it appeared in the tube and swathed (triple checked that!). This shade wore well for three and a half hours and was non-drying.

Formula Overview

$29.00/0.11 oz. - $263.64 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "high color payoff" with a "blotted-down stain effect" that "glides on comfortably" and keeps lips "hydrated."

Coral (257)

Burberry Coral (257) Kisses Sheer Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a bright, medium coral with warm undertones and a glossy, cream finish. It had medium coverage in a single layer, which built up to nearly opaque pigmentation with two layers. The consistency was smooth, lightweight, and creamy with moderate slip–enough that I could feel the product move if I pressed and rubbed my lips together, though it didn’t leave streaks behind when I did so. There was a bit of product that gathered in my lip lines but wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance. The lipstick could have applied a bit more evenly, as it didn’t seem to adhere as well to the inner area of my lips. It wore well for four hours and was moisturizing while worn.

Cedar Rose (281)

Burberry Cedar Rose (281) Kisses Sheer Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a muted, medium mauve with warm undertones and a luminous, pearlescent sheen. It had incredibly fine shimmer strewn throughout that gave it a luminous finish that was a bit glossy, a bit pearly, but it wasn’t frosted or metallic. The pigmentation ranged from medium (one layer) to mostly opaque (two layers) where there was a hint of my lip freckle peeking through. It had a lightweight, balmy consistency that some slip but didn’t feel unduly slippery on where the color really shifted around. There was a very slight amount of product that gathered in my deeper lip lines but wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance. It lasted well for three and a half hours and was moisturizing over time.
