Morning! Today I am sharing a quick review post on a recent makeup purchase of mine. I have ordered a Liquid lip velvet (LLV) from Burberry. There are 14 shades available but the ones I originally wanted were out of stock. In the end, I went for a more neutral and natural looking shade, Fawn.
Official product description
A new statement-making matte cream colour with a comforting, whipped texture.
Developed with a new, innovative formula that combines rich pigment, smooth application and a whipped, creamy texture to create a bold, velvet finish that lasts for up to eight hours. The comfortable, non-drying formula keeps lips supple and moisturised during wear, ensuring the colour does not dry, fade or crack.
Available in our boldest palette, each of the 14 shades coats lips with a shot of saturated colour in one gliding movement.
Joining the Lip Velvet collection, new Liquid Lip Velvet provides a light-as-air feeling and a cushion-soft sensation upon application.
£26 for 6ml, Made in Italy
Fawn is a neutral brown shade with pink/peach undertone that goes pretty well with my warm skin tone. I originally thought this will be a “MLBB” shade, it pulls more brown on me.
The packaging is very nice, same shape and size as their lipgloss range. The lid is non-shiny and the tub is frosted.
The LLV has an airy texture to it, it applies smoothly and evenly. It felt very nice on the lips, like I wasn’t wearing lipstick at all. The matte-ness does not mean it will be non-transferable. In fact, it transferred onto all my cups and glasses which I was quite disappointed by. This means I will need to touch-up more often, I guess this is no different to normal lipsticks.
I also agree that this is highly pigmented, full coverage in 1 swipe.
I did not find this to be long-lasting, but I did wear lip balm so it might worn the longetivity down by alot!
Beautiful palette of shades available
Comfortable to wear and non-drying
No bleeding of colour into lines
Not long-lasting enough
In summary, I do like how comfortable it feels and pigmented it is but it will be unlikely for me to get another shade… I would prefer it to be longer lasting.
Thank you for reading and have a great day!!
