MAKEUP | Burberry Full Kisses Lipsticks with Lip Swatches

I'm really glad glossy is coming back because my lips have been so temperamental lately. I don't think I have ever mentioned this here, but whenever I get stressed, my lips get super swollen with tiny blisters and then flake like crazy for about a week. You can't even see anything, but my lips just feel very tight and uncomfortable. If anything, I have been asked if I have had lip injections whenever I have a flare up because my lips look so full! These flare-ups started when I got a big promotion at work in 2013 and then while I was prepping for my wedding. It went away while I was in the beauty industry and then came back when I started my current job two years ago. It is what it is so whenever I have a flare-up I go back to my glossy finish lipstick buddies to mask my dry patchy lips. My new friends go by the name of the Burberry Full Kisses* ($33.00 CDN) and they are a creamy full coverage, luminous finish lipstick lasting up to 8 hours!

The packaging, like everything Burberry, for the Full Kisses lipsticks are solid and luxurious with a pen-shaped applicator.

The flat top lipstick bullet allows for application promoting fullness and volume as the method of applying is one swipe down on each side of the top lip starting from the cupid's bow and then one continuous swipe along the bottom lip. These look cool and after watching application videos, I figured applying these would be a no-brainer. The instructions even say "mirrorless application".
I did not find these THAT easy to apply. While I found the central parts of my lips just fine, it was the corners of my mouth that I had issues with as I found it difficult to angle the lipstick on my bottom lip to get a clean finish.    

I am also not the biggest fan of the pen-like packaging because I keep dinging the actual lipstick bullet with the pen cap when I open/close it! Firstly, the pen cap is very tight so when you pull it off, you have to make sure that you do it perfectly straight and not move it too much. Quite a bit of the lipstick is exposed and everything you see in these photos is the lipstick at its lowest so putting the cap back on also requires some extra attention. Let's just say that all four of my lipsticks do not look QUITE the same as these photos!

The formulas on these are absolutely fantastic and you will have no complaints from me in that department! Pigmented, shiny, creamy and though they do last almost all day for me, they are NOT transferproof so be prepared to see very pigmented lip stains on your coffee cup and water bottles!

Final verdict: Even though I had some issues with the packaging, I have been using Nude almost every day. Talk about one of the most perfect nude lipsticks! Lilac was a close second and the shine and wear on all four of these Full Kisses were pretty good. They feel great on my lips even when they are going through stress flare-ups and the shine distracts from my dry patches! There are 15 gorgeous shades of Burberry Full Kisses and packaging aside, I thought these were fantastic as the formula and pigmentation is really what I fell in love with.
