The new formula is called Velvet, and offers a long-wearing matte finish that will still hydrate the lips. There will be three shades available now, and 12 in total to follow. I am anxious to try these because I find Burberry's existing lipsticks quite hydrating ... while historically I have found matte lipsticks drying on my lips, I know that if anyone can make a hydrating matte, it's Burberry!
Here are the three shades available at the Trend Show - Military Red, Pink Apricot, and Pink Azalea:
|Burberry Velvet lipstick - Military Red|
|Burberry Velvet lipstick - Pink Apricot|
|Burberry Velvet Lipstick - Pink Azalea|
These shades look gorgeous, especially Military Red and Pink Azalea. As I said, there will just be these three for now (in a limited quantity for the Trend Show - if you are interested, definitely pre-order), but more are coming soon.
Burberry will also have two gifts with purchase. The first is available with a $150 purchase, and includes a full-size Pale Rose eye shadow:
Angie from Bellevue's Burberry counter says that the color is a little darker than Cameo Pink (you can see Cameo Pink lipstick along with a few others at The Beauty Look Book here and at Cafe Makeup here) and can be applied anywhere on the face, but she particularly recommends the cheeks and lips.
Also - those eye palettes I wrote about in this post will be available in November, and Angie is currently accepting pre-orders for them. I can't wait to see these palettes!
If you would like to place an order, call Angie at 425-455-5800 x1043, or email Angie.Streeter@nordstrom.com. She is always very helpful, and she will ship your order for free! Tell her you found her info here at Pretty Addicted.*
