Burberry Kisses Lipstick

I am pretty sure that everyone and their mother managed to get their hands on a free sample of the stunning Burberry Kisses Lip Colour back in March/April. It was possibly the best twitter campaign ever. I opted for a beautiful nude shade called Nude Pink (05) and I am in love!

First of all, how lovely is the packaging? So sleek and elegant! Even more adorable in a mini version :) I still can't believe Burberry were giving these away for free! I am now tempted to treat myself to a full size version (£25.00) in the same colour, maybe a bit darker.

The formula of the Burberry Kisses is very hydrating, creamy, easy to apply and feels super comfortable on the lips. The finish has a bit of shine to it (similar to MAC lustre) and shade Nude Pink is a perfect everyday lip colour, giving me the 'my lips but better' look. I would describe it as peachy pink, but it looks more nude in daylight (see last photo). The colour lasts on the lips for 2 hours, but I am sure that darker shades have better lasting power.

Did you manage to get your mitts on a free sample?
