Burberry Light Crimson, Orange Poppy, Tea Rose Kisses Sheer Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Burberry Light Crimson (269) Kisses Sheer Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a medium-dark pink-coral with subtle, warm undertones and a creamy finish. The pigmentation varied from medium to mostly opaque, though the color didn’t apply as evenly as it could have and sunk noticeably into my lip lines. The texture was creamy, balm-like with moderate slip, and it was easy to over-apply the product as it skated across my lips like melting butter. It wore well for three hours but was hydrating while worn.

Formula Overview

$34.00/0.11 oz. – $309.09 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “buildable colour” with a “satin finish” and “continuous hydration.” They have medium, buildable coverage with some shades having more semi-opaque, buildable coverage. I found that “a layer” depended on the shade, as some seemed to go on more heavily–and looked more like a cream finish–and others were more emollient, a bit thinner, and translucent and had more of a stained-like finish. The brand recommended “two to three” layers for more “intense depth and vibrancy.” For all swatches, I applied two layers, and in each shade’s respective review, you’ll find the coverage range described. Generally speaking, though, they definitely weren’t ultra-sheer in one layer; two layers was only needed for more opaque coverage with most shades.

The consistency was more emollient with noticeable slip, which made it easy to apply across my lips, but they can feel like they’re melting as you apply. In my experience, this can lead to over-applying product, so it’s just something I’m more aware of while applying this type of formula to ensure that I don’t layer on too much product. Most shades applied evenly, but a fair number of them had slight settling–the kind that I can see in the close-up photos but not so much just looking in the mirror–to more noticeable settling in my lip lines due to how much slip the formula had. The slip made them comfortable, like a juicy lip balm, and the hydration was there throughout wear and my lips didn’t feel dry or tight for hours after the color had worn off. They lasted between three and five hours on me with some of the richer, deeper hues leaving behind subtle stains.

There wasn’t any noticeable scent or taste. Burberry’s lipstick cases close magnetically, which I’ve found keeps the caps on very securely and ensures that it always closes when you put the cap back on!

Burberry Orange Poppy (273) Kisses Sheer Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark orange-red with warm undertones and a jelly-like finish. It had semi-sheer to medium color payoff with a smooth, creamy texture that was a bit thinner, but still emollient, compared to other shades in the range. This shade had more of a stained-like effect in comparison. The color went on evenly and didn’t emphasize my lip texture. It lasted for three hours and was moisturizing over time.

Burberry Tea Rose (277) Kisses Sheer Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy mauve with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. The color payoff built from medium to mostly opaque (two layers), while the texture was creamy, lightweight, and emollient without being too slippery during wear. The color went on evenly with just a smidgen of product in my deeper lip lines, though it wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance. It stayed on nicely for four hours and was very hydrating over time.
