The last thing I need is a new lipstick range to become obsessed by. I mean, seriously it's the last thing I need. I'm already a fan of Burberry cosmetics, even though it's taken me TWO YEARS to pick up a lipstick for some reason.
Packaged in the brand's signature print, it has to be said that these are some of the loveliest packaged lipsticks on the market - what can I say, I'm a sucker for a pewter casing!
I was sent Copper 202, and, I have to admit that my heart sank a bit when I opened it, as I find it incredibly difficult to wear brown-ish shades on my lips. However ...
This lipstick isn't as opaque as it seems. Much like my beloved Chantecaille Lip Chics (which are my favourite lipstick texture bar none), these are a sheer, almost-balmy lipstick, but they are not lacking in pigment.
On my hand this is a rust-brown shade, sheer, but on the lips, it covers up my uneven lip pigmentation very well, and is a far more nude-shade than you'd expect from the bullet. I really like it, it's nude, but not too beige so it doesn't make me look like a corpse. It's extremely comfortable in wear, it feels thick and nourishing, and doesn't dry my lips out. Like other sheer lipsticks, wear time is about average, around three hours or so, but it's not a real chore to keep reapplying with a lipstick like this, to be honest.
I adore the magnetised lid too, which means you can't put the top back on in the wrong position, as you see here. If you do try to put the lid on incorrectly, the top spins around till the magnets line up properly, and there are literally seconds of fun to be had sending the top spinning around and watching it settle.
All in all, this is a a lovely lipstick, and one I've been wearing a lot since it turned up. Lovely texture, pretty packaging, and a nice colour. :sigh: I'm going to need at least three. Pink Heather and Field Rose next, I think. Dammit.
The Fine Print: PR Sample. I HATE when a sample leads to unexpected purchases. My bank manager is going to kill me. Still, there's always the wedding account, hey?
