Burberry Sepia 03 Lip Gloss And Lip Liner











Burberry conveniently named both gloss and lip liner as Sepia (#03), which makes locating and matching in a hurry a lot easier when you're in a hurry. But this is not why they're so awesome- it's all about the textures and color. I've bought these two items back in August and have been constantly reaching for them, even when not wearing the Burberry lipsticks I got at the same time (though as you can see, they work beautifully together).

Sepia is a warm brown-based rose. The lip liner is a little more neutral than the gloss and is a great base color for lips: under lipstick or topped with the Sepia gloss. It's soft and glides smoothly but never bleeds into lines. I did find that some color tends to gather in the scar on my lower lip, but it's not really an issue- I don't use the pencil without something on top. The gloss is very pretty (and not just because of the sleek Burberry packaging) and keeps the promise of hydrating and glowing. It's comfortable, not sticky and has no shimmery particles. There's a faint powdery makeup scent that goes away within minutes and doesn't bother me.

Bottom Line: Who could ask for anything more?

Burberry Sepia 03 Lip Gloss and Lip Liner ($27 each) are a Nordstrom exclusive, online and in select locations.

  1. I couldn't agree more about the Burberry lipglosses. I bought No. 1 Rosewood about two months ago, and it has quickly become a staple. I'm quite pale, so it's actually the color my lips would be if they naturally always had color -- just very pretty. After your review, I think I'll pick up the matching lipliner.

  2. I was very happy with Burberry that they had all the "systems" match. It makes life so much easier.
    I also found most of their colors very flattering for light to medium complexions.
    As I grow older, it's more about flattering than boldness. These are my thoughts that ring in the new year...

  3. This color looks so pretty-I've never tried their products before and will have to give this a try. I'd heard the textures are nice too.
    I love having this color in my stable-brown based roses work very well with my skin tone.

  4. Well both of these are going to my buy list :-) I'm really discovering gentler, "neutral" lip colors in recent times (after a long addiction to burgundy and carmine reds) and Burberry really excels in this department.
