That I am a huge fan of the lipstick/lip balm hybrid paradigm made their Lip Mists the logical starting point for me. The packaging is ultra luxe with a satisfying heft and shiny mirrored surface that is sure to send even the most reserved makeup magpie into a frenzied state of delight! As the lid approaches the base of the tube a magnet snaps it into place with a pronounced thud. It just screams of quality and attention to detail. Of course Burberry fans will be smitten by the quintessential plaid pattern embossed directly into the lipstick itself- leaving no question as to who the designer is.
I can find no fault with Burberry Lip Mists for me personally. That said, the formula (rather unnecessarily) contains a pronounced perfume scent that will be an absolute deal breaker for those who cannot tolerate fragrance in their makeup let alone in their lipsticks. I have grown accustomed to the scent which I would liken to a vaguely floral aroma, but I do tend to prefer unscented lipsticks.
Another thing that can be a bit of a challenge is the presence of the magnet closure mechanism that is definitely a nice feature when in use, but can become somewhat problematic when being stored. Those very magnets simultaneously attract and repel other makeup- making your makeup storage an active kinetic space! It makes stacking them a challenge, and at times somewhat frustrating. That said, it is an inconvenience that I will happily endure because the products themselves are amazing.
