Burberry 205 Rosy Red Lip Mist Sheer Lipstick





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.

  1. I have *such* a hard time resisting red lipsticks. I do prefer lipsticks that leave a stain, though. "Unsightly debris"? lol. I'm visualizing cat-fur dust bunnies stuck in the corner of your mouth. (My dust bunnies roll around like tumbleweeds.)

  2. LOL!! Pretty colour but I think I'll avoid the tumbleweeds! I like a stain left behind as well, although the RC Shines didn't do that for me either :-(

  3. Wow nice colour.. Looks very moisturizing.. When I pass the burberry counter their packages always attracts me but their colours are just not amazing..

    Might try out their blushes soon

  4. If I wore lipsticks I would be all over this! Looks very pretty even though I'll be passing on it.

  6. ZP, I have this thing about red lipstick. I see them, I must have them. Thankfully I also wear them a lot. And leave marks on cat foreheads when I kiss them.

  7. C., give Guerlain RA a try if you haven't already. They might do the trick (reviews coming soon, of course).

  8. DS, Burberry's packaging is stunning and truly luxurious. Funny enough, I don't own any of their blushes yet (love the bronzer, though). Must rectify soon.

  9. HDtM, give me a second to process this: no lipstick? at all?

  10. N., it's not that bad, and I think that since you often prefer lighter shades the ones in this range might actually be what you're after.

  11. Heh, I also brand my cats with red and rose. And I understand you have four more (cats) than I. I bow down to you!

  12. Thanks, ZP. It's great to see how so many of us are cat lovers. These creatures are such a big joy.
