Matte lips have been the craze for a while. Not just matte, but clay facial mask…matte. My lip balm addicted lips quiver at the thought of wearing such a drying product. The Burberry Liquid Lip Velvets are a happy medium.
It has a whipped formula that is supposed to be comfortable, non-drying that won’t fade, dry or crack. I wouldn’t call them moisturizing in the traditional sense, but it has enough silicones in the formula to prevent it from sucking the life out of your lips. I didn’t experience any cracking and it maintained matte/velvet finish.
The pigmentation in the Liquid Lip Velvet’s is awesome. I was blown away with the first swipe. The color stays intense for hours, but needs fixing up after meals. It also leaves a nice stain behind.
When initially applying the product, it has a slippery feel that stays around for quite some time. The slip feels comes from the silicones, which feels good initially, but after an hour or two, I was reaching for my lip balm. It isn’t a perfect lip product for me, but if you’re looking for a more manageable matte finish, these should be considered.
The Burberry Liquid Lip Velvets are $34 for 6mL.
Black Cherry #57
If your lips are naturally dark brown like mine, #57 comes off as a really, really dark brown. There is no hint of “cherry”.
