Review: Burberry Lip Velvet in Pink Apricot
As unimpressed as I am by Burberry's Lip Mist formula, I feel the opposite about their Lip Velvets. This is their longwearing, matte formula and it is great. I rank it up with my beloved Givenchy Le Rouge, though Le Rouge is still a teensy bit superior for me because it has a tad more slip. The Lip Velvet in Pink Apricot glided on smoothly and was opaque in two passes. It wore well - 4 hours or so - even through a meal. I adore the packaging. It is sleek and sophisticated and expensive-looking - as well it should be, given what these cost. Pink Apricot itself is an orangey peach. I can see myself reaching for this quite a bit in the spring/summer months.
