If you haven’t signed up for Influenster yet you’re seriously missing out! It’s a completely free site that allows to review and ask questions about literally any product and sends you boxes of free stuff to review if you’re a blogger or influencer. I’ve been a member of Influenster for years and have received some amazing boxes from brands like Maybelline, Hourglass, Armani, and more. You can read all about it and sign up here!
The latest box of goodies to hit my doorstep was the new Burberry Vox Box filled with luxury liquid lipsticks and more. When I first received the campaign email, I was bouncing off the walls because I’m a die hard fan of liquid lipsticks and just knew that Burberry was going to knock my socks off with their luxurious packaging and superior quality.
And they did! Not only did I receive 2 of the gorgeous Burberry Liquid Lip Velvets but Influenster also tossed in a matching lip liner and highlighter stick to pull the look together. Yaaaaaas! Seeing all those sexy manila boxes made my heart flutter and pulling everything out almost made it stop. Everything is so gorgeous!
The Influenster Burberry Vox Box included:
- Liquid Lip Velvet in Fawn No. 5 nude rosy brown
- Liquid Lip Velvet in Bright Plum No. 49 intense plum
- Lip Definer Lip Shaping Pencil in Bright Plum No. 7 intense plum
- Fresh Glow Highlighting Luminous Pen in Nude Radiance No. 01 soft yellow gold
As you can imagine, the packaging is immaculate and everything feels solid, sturdy and luxe. Even the Lip Definer feels like it costs a million bucks. That’s not the most impressive part though. The packaging is certainly enticing but the quality of everything is truly out of this world. Burberry isn’t just fancy frills. They know their stuff!
The Liquid Lip Velvet is seriously the best liquid lipstick formula I’ve ever tried. And I’m not just saying that because they were free or the packaging is so chic. The Liquid Lip Velvets sport a creamy, whipped mousse texture that’s featherlight and super plush so it doesn’t really accentuate dry patches or fine lines. Both Fawn and Bright Plum were intensely pigmented with full coverage in a single swipe. The small precise doe foot applicator made it super easy to apply Fawn and Bright Plum–even without the Lip Definer.
The shades aren’t super unique. You can certainly find a light peachy beige nude and bright fuchsia pink liquid lipstick anywhere. That being said, you’ll be hard pressed to find a good nude and bright, hot pink that perform this well. The formula of the Liquid Lip Velvets is what truly sets them apart from other liquid lipsticks on the market. They’re matte from the get go so there’s no annoying or uncomfortable dry down. Which means they’re also quite comfortable to wear all day long without flaking, peeling or ripping my lips apart. Burberry gets 2 snaps for whipping up these insanely good Liquid Lip Velvets!
The Lip Definer is no slouch either! Thanks to the Burberry touch, the Lip Definer feels quite sturdy and much more luxurious than any other lip pencil I’ve tried. The formula is also quite impressive, too! The Lip Definer glides across the lips like silk without that waxy texture typical of most lip liners. Instead, the Lip Definer lightly hugs the lips without robbing them of moisture so they always look plush, kissable and ready to go.
I don’t typically wear a matching lip liner when I rock a bright pink lip but for sake of testing purposes I tried the Bright Plum Lip Definer and Liquid Lip Velvet combo. They work quite well together and the Lip Definer helped the Bright Plum Liquid Lip Velvet last a bit longer (not that it needed any help) and kept it crisp all day long. To be honest, the Liquid Lip Velvets are so good they don’t necessarily need lip liners. However, I’ve been pairing the Lip Definer with my pink glosses lately and let’s just say this little beauty hasn’t left my makeup bag since.
For some reason, Influenster and Burberry saw fit to include the Fresh Glow Highlighting Luminous Pen too but I’m certainly not complaining. The Fresh Glow Highlighting Luminous Pen is one of the most stunning cream highlighters ever! It appears that it only comes in one shade, Nude Radiance, a shimmering soft yellow gold with very fine golden shimmer. The Fresh Glow Highlighting Luminous Pen has a thin, silky texture that’s quite easy to apply using your fingers, a brush or a sponge. It seems to absorb into the skin without much effort at all so you don’t have to blend much and it always looks natural. This nifty little beauty has been my bff these days because it makes a great base for strobing, a wonderful eye brightener and subtle everyday highlighter. If there were other shades, I’d totally be ordering one right now!
