I confess that I couldn't resist the limited edition gold packaging from the Burberry Holiday collection.
The collection consists of four
items with only the gold nail polish being new. Trench Kiss #216 lip
mist (£22.50) is a lot paler than I was expecting. Its a flat beige, with a slight warm tone and applies like a wash of pale foundation on
I find the lip mist formula balmy in texture with good
hydration/moisturising abilities, however trench kiss shows up lip lines
and any dryness.
I knew this would be a difficult shade for me to wear but I wasn't quite
expecting it to be so unforgiving. I think the sheerness of this is its
saving grace, so as long as I prep my lips well and put on one swipe
then layer with a gloss I do get a ultra nude lip that works.
Swatched below with four swipes,
I'm one for thinking a product shouldn't require effort to make it work
so ultimately this is a miss for me. Nevertheless, I don't want to
convey negativity on the actual colour of this, as this really is a true
beige, which I know a lot of people seek. I guess I am so use to seeing
nude shades with hints of other colours like pink or peach, so when faced with the reality
of what a true beige nude is, I was taken aback.
I bought this from http://uk.burberry.com
I should mention they have a lot of products that are not in stock from other online sites and the delivery was really quick (within 24 hours) and the products packaged really well.
