Burberry Beauty Lip Mist Natural Sheer Lipstick in Field Rose and Nude Peach - Iconic Nude Collection Summer 2012

These Lip Mist shades are part of Burberry Beauty's Iconic Nude Collection, and will be added to the permanent line.  There are four new shades in all; I purchased two: Field Rose and Nude Peach.

Burberry describes its Lip Mist formula as a Creamy lipstick [which] offers a hint of natural, sheer color that leaves lips with a moist, dewy finish."  I would say this is true, except that Lip Mists usually offer more than a hint of color.  To me they are like a pigmented gloss.  They feel creamy (as opposed to sticky) with a more toned down shine, and while the color is sheer enough that your natural lip color comes through, there is still appreciable color on there.  I would say they are somewhere between semi-sheer and semi-opaque.   

The wear time is about average for me (2-3 hours or so), unless I eat or drink.  In that case I will need to reapply.  That's to be expected with this kind of gloss-lipstick hybrid, and I don't mind it at all.  These seem similar in premise to Chanel's Rouge Coco Shines.  I would note that these have more color and wear longer on me than Rouge Coco Shines.

Field Rose is a lovely warm dusty rose with just a hint of pink shimmer, and applies as such on the lips.  It looks softer and warmer on my lips than it does in the tube; it's a very 'my lips but better' shade that will go with pretty much everything.  Field Rose is exactly the kind of color I love and it's my favorite of the two.

Nude Peach is, as the name suggests, a nude peach.  There is no detectable shimmer in this shade.  It has a lot of nude in it, but there is enough peach to keep it from looking beigey or brown.  To me it's a nicely balanced shade; the peach adds life to the lips, while the nude keeps the color soft and natural.  This is another shade that will go with everything.     I think Nude Peach would be nice for someone who wants a very toned down version of all the bright peaches, oranges, and corals that are so popular this season.

Overall I am very happy with these lipsticks. I'm a gloss girl, but I sometimes I just really want to wear lipstick and these are a nice combination of the two. They glide on with ease, feel creamy and moisturizing, and give lips a nice amount of color and shine.  I like Chanel's Rouge Coco Shines, but I prefer Burberry's Lip Mists.  I purchased mine from the Burberry counter in Nordstrom Bellevue. They will be available soon online, but until then you can call Angie at the Nordstrom Bellevue Burberry counter at 425-455-5800 x1043 and she will ship them to you.
