Burberry Lip Cover Soft Satin Lipstick in No.04 Rosewood

If you see this post on another site than it has been stolen and used without my permission. I only allow reposts with proper credits for my work (please contact me first!)!

I wasn´t particularly interested in Burberry cosmetics but actually bought some items from them for my mom when I was in Hong Kong.

My favorite ebay seller listed a really cute mini sample version of the famous No.04 Rosewood Lip Cover Soft Satin Lipstick so I thought it looked interesting enough to try this out.

The sample version looks pretty much like the full-size however it doesn´t have that cool magnetic closure for the cap but just a regular click-on cap.
I like the delicate Burberry pattern engraved on the tube and the lipstick itself, these are the kind of small touches making those Burberry makeup items feel more precious and special in my opinion.

The lipstick has a very nice creamy texture and feels very comfortable and pleasant to wear. The lasting power is really good for such a creamy lipstick and the satin finish is very pretty.
What I dislike is the strong perfumey scent. It´s the kind of typical lipstick scent (like ...hmmm... Nivea body lotion perhaps?) and it doesn´t fade so this is something that REALLY annoys me.

No.04 Rosewood is a very pretty rosy brown shade that should work with most skin-tones and makeup looks.

Overall a high-quality lipstick and it could be totally perfect if they left that nasty perfume out.

Rating 3/5, obviously due to the overwhelming scent.

wow!! this looks great on you!!

I like the sleek and simple design from their products and it is so tempting to get one or two items for myself, though. I'm bit sensitive when it comes to strong scents in cosmetics. sigh.

I'm always really happy with your honest reviews, and this review shows that you're actually honest, because most people praise the Burberry lipsticks a bit too much. Ofcourse, they are good, but when you are used to Maquillage/Coffret d'Or or even Lavchuca they are not thát perfect.
I still love this colour and the magnetic case is so pretty!

I was thinking of trying these, but now I'm not sure...the smell of Chanel Rouge Cocos bugs me a lot, so these probably would too! Have you tried any Rouge Cocos?

This sample size is adorable and luxurious. I definitely would hate the scent but the texture sounds divine.

I have just been recently introduced to Burberry Beauty and love the line, but my only experience with the lip products has been during a makeover.

I have the exact sample that you just reviewed, as well as another color Cameo Pink, but I haven't tried them yet. The Burberry foundation scent bothers me a lot too, so I can imagine that if it is the same scent in the lipstick, I wouldn't like it enough to buy it.

Do you find that it fades quickly after application? The foundation scent goes away after about 5 mins so I am planning on purchasing. But really I just love the eyeshadows and foundation, not so much the other products in the line.

Well that is one thing getting scratched off my wishlist :(
