When I read that Burberry was releasing a new line of matte lip color, I couldn't order a tube fast enough...I picked up Pink Apricot (the lightest shade, naturally) and am beyond pleased with the formula, moisture and lasting power of this formula.
While I am currently working on a proper review of Pink Apricot (#301), I wanted to share the swatches I hastily procured last week at Nordstrom...it was evening, so I couldn't take any shots in natural light.
Here is more on the Burberry Lip Velvet (which retails for $30) straight from the Nordstrom website:
Burberry innovation brings a new finish for lips: a velvety matte radiance, inspired by the most opulent of English fabrics. Iconic pigments provide incredibly dense and luminous color, gel technology gives comfortable long-wear performance, while triglycerides and wild rose continuously hydrate. The result is effortlessly elegant, protective and breathable.
I hope these images are of use for those of you ordering online...I am loving the Burberry Lip Velvet; it is a truly hydrating matte option, perfect for fall and winter!

Bottom Line: Burberry has crafted a winning lipstick with the Lip Velvet formula...it is highly pigmented, rich, hydrating and lasts forever...so happy with this purchase. Keep your eyes peeled for an up close and personal look at Pink Apricot soon!
