Finding The Perfect Nude #1 | Burberry Lip Cover no.11

Finding the perfect nude is rather a hard task. All of the most loved nudes in the blogging world are either too pale, too pink or just not right for my skin tone. For example, Mac patisserie and shy girl just make me look washed out. So, i have been embarking on a quest to find the perfect nude lipstick for my skin tone, and my first new found love is the Burberry Lip Cover in Antique rose, no.11.

This lipstick isn't really your typical nude, but more a 'my lips but nuder' shade. It's definitely more on the pinky end of the scale, but does a good job at muting down the lips whilst giving them a bit of colour. In terms of formula, its pretty much opaque and leaves a satin finish on the lips, not matte, but not sheeny either and it really stays put. I'd say this lasts a good 4 or so hours on me before i feel the need to re-apply. If you're around my skin tone then this will be a great subtle everyday lipstick for you, but even if you're paler or darker i can see it being a universally beautiful looking lipstick. The thing i really do love the most about burberry lipsticks has to be the packaging. They're so luxe and sophisticated, everything down to the simple embossing and magnetic closure - they really do know the way to my heart. Being a high end brand they're rather expensive, but being cheaper than Chanel means i don't feel so bad buying a couple...

So, if you've been having the same struggle as me, then maybe this post has helped to point you in the right direction. I've got a couple other nudes lined up which fit other criteria, so stay tuned!
