One cosmetic brand that always excites me with their new make-up launches is Burberry Beauty. Every single product is spot-on – from the gorgeous packaging to beautiful textures and rich colours. 

This week, I have chosen Burberry’s Lip Velvet in Poppy Red as my lipstick love. The reason? I fell in love with this bold red colour as soon as I applied it to my lips.

Why? a) The soft matte texture makes it easy to apply, b) it glides on smoothly leaving a comforting feel and c) lips are left with intense pigments.

Formulated with a non-drying technology, lips are left with a lovely, velvety finish. At £26 a pop, this lipstick is on the pricey side but it is worth every single penny. A red lipstick must-have!
