I generally prefer Burberry Lip Covers as compared to Lip Mists because I prefer the creamy opaque finish. But for Oxblood I had to make the exception. Who could resist that gorgeous limited edition gold casing?
Oxblood is a deep red bordering on burgundy to my eyes. It is a semi sheer lipstick that becomes opaque after a few applications. If you are new into reds or dark colours, you can pat Oxblood lightly on your lips to give your lips a more stained look.
|Applied without lip liner|
The above lip swatches were made without any lip liner so you can see how Oxblood looks. I personally like applying a lip liner to give my lips a more defined shape. I use Burberry's Lip Definer Shaping Pencil No. 05 in Brick Red which I feel goes well with Oxblood. In the picture below I wore it with Brick Red lip pencil.
I love Burberry lip products. This is no different. Lip Mist are however softer in texture so please make sure you do not put your Oxblood in your car or somewhere warm. Be careful when you take it to use. Don't press it too hard or you will find your xblood damaged. If you can't find the one with the limited edition casing, you still can find Oxblood in the normal gunmetal casing.
