Burberry Primrose (21) is a neutral-toned, medium pink with a cream finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $34.00 and contains 0.2 oz.
Burberry Primrose (21) Liquid Lip Velvet ($34.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a brighter, medium peony pink with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque coverage in one layer, while the consistency was spreadable, velvety, mousse-like, and lightweight on the lips. This shade lasted for five and a half hours on me but some color pulled into lip lines after three and a half hours of wear. I was able to rub my lips together to smooth the color back out, though. The formula was comfortable to wear and non-drying.
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.
