An ode to Burberry ‘Oxblood’


A berry toned lipstick with just the perfect amount of brick red and wine hues, this one’s an absolute winner for Christmas dinners and here’s why.

The texture is divine. It’s satin to the touch and has sheer to full-on pigmentation that allows more room for error. It feels almost nothing on the lips and glazes over textured lips. I would condemn that this lipstick will not last through christmas pudding or a divine turkey, but if you do not mind the touch ups, this one will not disappoint in color payoff and comfort.

The tone is quite neutral so it really brightens the teeth and pairs consistently well with soft browns, beige’s and golds on the lids with a generous sprinkle of strobing. If you do want to take it up a notch, which I did, I added a little touch of Kat Von D’s Damned in the edges to add a subtle lip ombre and here’s the result. What do you think?
