These forthcoming Burberry Lip & Cheek Bloom products are really interesting. They’re made to a ‘bouncy’ formula, so feel a like a gel/mousse hybrid with a blur feel to them. They give a translucent matte finish that’s very much in keeping with the ‘English Rose’ concept of Burberry beauty using sheer and natural looks.
The two shades (of 6) I have here are Orange Blossom and Peony – my favourite is Peony – it’s a hot coral/pink hybrid that does a cheek pop. However, you do need to work with the texture. When I tested the Burberry Lip & Cheek Bloom products, I found that it can almost clot a little on the skin; the trick seems to be that you use very small amounts to smooth over with a brush or a fingertip and build up, rather than go for the full look immediately. Because it’s a slippy texture though, you can really work it to a seamless finish.
So, as you can see from the swatch, they’re touches of colour to enhance the tone. I didn’t like them on my lips though – but I’m not a matte lip fan personally. For those that love a matte lip, I think these are quite a discovery – all the sheerness of a translucent gloss but in a matte formula. I don’t think I’ve seen that before.
The pots, in case you wonder, are actually glass – I was so sure they were plastic so I tapped one against my tooth and feel lucky to still have that tooth! Definitely glass. The Burberry Lip & Cheek Bloom is £24 and launches in June.

I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
