Modern tinted lip balm: Burberry Oxblood Lip Glow
Burberry Oxblood Lip Glow
One of the new lip gloss hybrids: part gloss, part stain and part lip balm. I love this colour – succulent deep red cherries. And the result is super modern: a hint of strong colour as opposed to full throttle lipstick (though that is another modern story, just less easy to get away with). How it opens is thoroughly satisfying – you twist the lid and the applicator wand glides out.
Once the balm has sunk in, lips are left with a soft, pretty, just bitten stain. Chic, healthy, elegant. Of course you can choose other colours – there are currently around 20. But Oxblood is in my winter make-up kit. What I now want is the matching nail polish, but stocks are tight. Grab one if you can.
