Here's something that will help us all recover from a long weekend and from a Tuesday that feels like Monday: red lips!
Burberry Lip Mist Sheer Lipstick in Rosy Red (#205) is probably one of the most potent reds released this summer as part of the sheer lipstick trend, but it is still light enough for day wear (as long as you can wear classic reds), and take you from morning to late night. Applying one coat is more than enough, but for a night out on town you can take it to the next level with a second and still enjoy the light formula.
The finish of Burberry Rosy Red looks a little shinier than in Blueberry. It lasts a little longer than Chanel Rouge Coco Shine, but Chanel has the advantage of leaving a uniform stain on the lips once the shine wears off. Burberry Lip Mist wears off completely, color and shine, but at least on one occasion it left some unsightly debris that required a quick touch-up. Still, this is a good summer option that is easy to apply and is low maintenance for a true red lipstick.
Bottom Line: Very nice.
Burberry 205 Rosy Red Lip Mist Sheer Lipstick ($30) is a Nordstrom exclusive, online and in select locations.
