Burberry Beauty Lip Cover Sepia Pink Review, Swatches, LOTD

Lip Cover was released in July 2010 and since then has become a must-have in makeup pouches everywhere.

Burberry Beauty's Autumn/Winter 2012 collection saw the release of more Lip Covers. The collection also comprises of a new Velvet Foundation and three additional shades to the Sheer Eyeshadow lineup.


Name: Burberry Beauty バーバリー ビューティ Lip Cover リップカバー Sepia Pink No.32
Price: RM 96 for 3.8 g
Release: August 2012
Made in: Italy

The lipstick has a lot of little details that you come to expect from designer brands that have made a foray into beauty products.

The iconic Burberry check pattern etched onto the lipstick bullet and the tube is very sleek. The self-aligning magnetic closure provides a satisfying click sound when I slip the lid back on.

It has a nice heft that I usually associate with high end products. However, I find it to be unnecessarily clunky and don't even get me started on the reflective gunmetal grey casing. Here is how it compares to another fingerprint magnet, Lunasol Full Glamour Lips S, which is also ensconced in a square tube.

Yes, despite all the complains, the packaging is indeed très chic!

Sepia Pink is rosy toned mauve taupe. It looks unremarkable when swatched but I promise that you will love it on your lips. I would imagine it being flattering on both fair and tanned skintones.

It looks very natural on my pigmented lips which brings the term my lips but better in beauty blogging lingo to mind.

It feels very moisturising on and glides easily with a lot of slip. It even works well on lipbalm free lips. Colour payoff is pretty decent with two swipes yielding considerable coverage.

Since it is so creamy and all, it doesn't resist eating or drinking. You will certainly need to touch-up afterwards. On its own, it will last an hour or two maximum before wearing off.

Do I need more Lip Covers? Beyond a doubt, yes! I tend to favour glossy and moisturising formulas and this lipstick definitely fits the bill. And once I factor in the pleasing aesthetics... it is really a no-brainer.
