Burberry Ruby Lip Cover


If you follow me on Instagram you will know what a huge lipstick fan I am, especially red lips. I am a die-hard Ruby Woo fan (which I reviewed here apologies for the very low quality pictures) but I thought it was about time I branched out and tried something different, so Burberry Ruby Lip Cover (No 18.) made its way onto my Christmas list.

Now I knew it was going to be luxurious, it is Burberry after all but when I opened this I was truly delighted. The packaging is stunning with a magnet close and the classic Burberry check which is then imprinted on the lipstick itself. My first thought was 'how will I bring myself to use this and disturb the pattern', yes I am a Virgo through and through! 

When applying I noticed how smooth and buttery this felt, it is very moisturising (unlike Ruby Woo) and glides straight onto the lip. I was expecting quite a deep red however on the lip it is brighter with a glossy finish. With it being so glossy it does feel like it isn't going to last and will disappear with your first drink however I was quite impressed with the lasting power, only having to touch up once or twice. One of the biggest selling points of Ruby No.18 is that it is meant to suit all skin tones, because of this it is the colour that they use at Burberry fashion shows. It is a great shade for your first foray into red lips.

It is a luxury product at £22.50, maybe one for your birthday or next Christmas, if you can wait that long! If anyone knows a dupe for this please let me know below, I might try and find one myself. Are you a red lipstick fan? Which is your favourite one?
