Burberry Kisses – Military Red

The acquisition of Burberry Beauty’s Burberry Kisses in Military Red was one spurred on by none other than Stacey from Expat Makeup Addict. Her tempting Lip Six posts are always a good test of self control and in this instance, I had none. Oops.

Now, I am not a regular red lipped wearing lass. I will almost always go for the pinky or mauve shades. But there was something about this particular red that just had to be mine. So off I went and ordered one from Net-a-Porter and apart from swatching it and having a quick try-on, it has sat, unloved on my dresser waiting for the day I would be brave enough to face the world with a bold red lip.

Then along came my inspiration in the form of Anne from Linda.Libra.Loca and suddenly I just knew this week was it. I was going to do a red. On a Monday. To work. Huh…? Say what?!

Burberry Kisses – Military Red – Yes, we can all tell my swatch photography needs some work!

The Burberry Kisses formula is good’un. Hydrating but not overly slippy and will stay on the lips for quite a number of hours before fading away pretty evenly. Reapplication is a breeze, in an 8 hour day, I touched it up twice. I don’t think that’s bad at all considering it’s not a matte and I wore no liner underneath.

The Burberry Kisses range is just so beautiful, I want them all! Next on the wishlist is Rose Blush.
