Burberry Lip Glow



Many moons ago you may recall that I went on a rather indulgent Harvey Nichols spending spree, aided by the prospect of being rewarded a goodie bag worth £130 for being so good bad (you can read the post here!) With this being the case I decided to treat myself to some luxurious high end products Id had my eye on for a while, with one of those items being the Burberry Lip Glow in No. 14 Nude Rose. 

Please please dont judge me for my next statement. I always used to associate Burberry with chavs. In my head I picture the Ed Hardy tees and Burberry peek caps that were all the rage during the early noughties (imagine Buster Brady on Mrs Browns Boys and you'll kinda get the idea haha). But I take back my words about Burberry, especially when it comes to the brands beauty line. 

I love the sophisticated, decadent feel of the simple packaging with the classic plaid design on the lid. Its in another league to the Plain Jane packaging that houses my trusty Barry M glosses (note: this isn't the type of gloss to throw in your bag for a night on the tiles). 
Nude Rose is a barely there neutral pink, perfect for layering with a nude lipstick for a glossy finish, or worn alone as a subtle 'your lips but better' shade. This natural gloss claims to 'reflect light to create illusion of plumper, fuller lips', a statement I would definitely agree with. Unlike most lip glosses I dont find Nude Rose to be sticky at all (we all want to avoid the whole hair stuck to lips scenario, right?!) 

So is Nude Rose unique? NO ... Is it a show stopping gloss? NO ... Can it make any beauty addicts heart flutter with its jaw droppingly luxurious packaging? YES
If im brutally honest its a product that I could probably have done without (you wont see me rushing out to get a backup when it runs out), but we all need a little luxury once in a while right?! 
Nude Rose will set you back £18 and can be purchased from the likes of Harvey Nichols & Selfridges
Have you tried anything from the Burberry beauty line?!

  5. Of course you could've done without this product but it's BURBERRY *____* You needed it ;) I think sometimes it's okay to treat ourselves to some super high end things for spits and giggles. It's nice just to have and at least this is a color you know you'll get use out of!!
