Burberry’s Lip Velvet Liquid; Is It Worth Its Price?

So, I was tempted. Not by any bloggers or anyone, but, by its packaging. Yes, you’ve heard it right. I bought it because of that expensive looking matte tube. What’s wrong with me, I did ask myself. Well, I bought it anyway, and it was the first time that I’d spent so much solely for my lips. I treated myself a Burberry’s Lip Velvet Liquid in Black Cherry No. 57. I originally really wanted Oxblood No. 53 though, but it was out of stock.

Then again, I have developed a crush on Burberry since I was twelve, so I guess, spending on this (along with Cashmere Foundation, oops) as my first purchase from Burberry’s beauty range would do it. And Burberry always did so well for its campaign; Iris Law as the face for the latest beauty range is quite perfect too. She’s gorgeous.

So, is it worth its price? Let’s see.

Comfortability and Dryness:  I’d give it 8/10 for comfortability. I can feel the ‘velvety’ as soon as it touches my lips; it’s a nice and smooth, unsticky feeling so that’s good. I have no problems applying it, but I noticed that it didn’t work so well when I have a dry lips. Especially the colour that I bought is a dark colour, so that one time when I had a chapped lips, it had looked like I don’t know how to apply a lip liquid on my lips. Then again, lesson 101 on lipstick/lip liquid – we shouldn’t really be wearing any on a dry lips. Having said that though, surprisingly enough, it doesn’t worsen it. Honestly, I’d give 10/10 for being completely non-drying.

Longevity: It’s absolutely high pigmented so, even after you had your sandwich and a cup of coffee during breakfast, the gloss might have faintly disappeared but the colour still remains on the lips. Though with Black Cherry – in which the colour is similar to the colour of a plum – it would leave your lips looking slightly darker and funny looking without it’s gloss, so, it’s better to reapply.

Price: £26. Expensive, but the quality made up for it. My advice though would be – get the absolute right colour that would suits you. I’m a little disappointed that I bought Black Cherry because I realised that I wouldn’t wear it everyday.

Extra note: It is called a velvet liquid because it’s not completely matte and not completely glossy.

The colour is really like you’ve eaten a dark cherry.

Oh, I love Dark Rosewood too.

Thank you for reading.
May you have happy thoughts always,

      I thought Charlotte Tilbury’s lipsticks are already expensive. But yeah, the quality is really great so it’s ok 🙂 x
