There is no question that the Burberry Siren Red Spring 2013 Collection features beautifully rich saturated hues that might seem uncharacteristic of the Burberry's quintessentially tasteful neutrals, but it turns out that they are quite adept at bold perfectly on-trend colors as well. In fact, one might arguably suggest that their bold hues are as spectacular as their signature neutrals. I would suggest that Burberry has stepped into a whole new arena, and has done so with great style.
Pink Sweet Pea Lip Glow Natural Lip Gloss No. 20, which is one of four new Lip Glow shades, is the only limited edition piece from the collection. It is a gorgeous highly saturated fuchsia, with multi-colored pearl, that imparts the perfect amount of twinkle (not unfortunate migrating chunks of glitter). It can be sheered out or built up, and it does leave behind a bit of a stain. As saturated as it is, it remains a lip gloss rather than a liquid lipstick or a hybrid formula- in other words, it is not so opaque as to completely obscure the visibility of your lips below.
The formula is smooth and creamy, and not in the least bit sticky. I get about 2-3 hours of wear time out of this formula with normal use, but your wear-time may vary.
