Burberry Lip Cover in Tulip Pink and Devon Sunset Review and Swatches

March 26, 2012

My lipstick collection is growing a little out of control lately, and my wallet is severely damaged after a little stroll around the department stores as I have noticed all the major brands have released either a new range of lipsticks or new shades.  Meet my Burberry Lip Cover in Tulip Pink and Devon Sunset from the Burberry Spring 2012 Collection. These are my first taste into the Burberry lippies and I am completely head over heels.


I wasn’t that into Burberry until Christopher Bailey became the creative director, as I love his modern and grunge take on the classic Burberry design. He once again did an excellent job for their makeup line, as the packaging of Burberry Lipsticks are the most luxurious and classic you could ever get. I instantly added one to my makeup purse just for “a touch of Burberry” 🙂


The texture of Burberry Lip Cover is on the semi opaque side – it has enough pigment to completely cover the natural color of your lips, and it’s non-drying and neither does it look or feel too heavy on the lips. It applies silky smooth with a satiny sheen.

Tulip Pink is a nudish pink color on me. To me it’s a fuss free all year round shade that would look lovely with any makeup.



Devon Sunset is a beautiful salmon coral pink on my lips. Compared to Tulip Pink, this is more of a spring summer color that instantly makes your complexion look more fresh and youthful.



As a beauty blogger, I always feel compelled to show you the makeup swatch on my arms. But I have to say in this case, the swatch of them on my skin is completely different to the color showing on my lips.

Bottom Line: Have absolutely no regret for my poor wallet! Love love these shades. If you are still hesitant about making a foray into the Burberry makeup line, I urge you not to wait!

Beautiful shades, I think both of them look lovely on you. One is a soft nude lip and the other is more of a pop of colour while still being very wearable and flattering.

Wow, I am so intrigued!

Another lemming! Have u tried skii makeup line? Looks very impressive too


Reika March 28, 2012 at 12:28 pm

No..I know SKII has released a new blush line recently, but I don’t think they are available in Australia yet. I always like to sample the testers first before I make a purchase 🙂

Ahh Looking at your swatches makes me wanna get Pink Tulips 🙂

I’ve been thinking about getting Devon Sunset so am really glad you did this post! I’ll take it as a sign that I should buy it :p
I’ve also emptied my wallet at Burberry DJs last week… Their eyeshadow range is absolutely gorgeous – perfect for creating that natural yet polished look. Did you pick up anything else besides these lippies and Pale Barley? Would love to know your thoughts on the rest of the range.


Reika March 28, 2012 at 12:27 pm

Yeh I picked up a few more e/s shades and blush, but haven’t had the chance to try them out yet.
I wish they will release an e/s palette one day!

Ahhhhhhhh i loooooove Burberry Beauty!! Both colours look great on you. You have to try other items from the line too! Midnight Brown eyeshadow goes beautifully with Pale Barley (one of my fave combos for day / work). The blushes are sooo pretty and smooth too! I also have to recommend the Lip Mists – they are so comfortable to wear and have good pigmentation, I just love them. I have Feather Pink and Copper (which looks gross in the tube, but pretty on! It’s funny how the bullet colour looks so different once applied to the skin!) Ok so I’m rambling now, but it’s my current favourite beauty line! I have yet to try the Lip Covers, I have to pick one up! Maybe a nude? . . . .

Everyone’s been telling me to get my hands on the midnight brown, the problem is it was limited edition and it’s no longer available 🙁
Thank you for the recs, I definitely need to further dig into this brand 🙂 It’s my current fav makeup line as well.


Elizabeth March 28, 2012 at 7:57 pm

WHAT?! NOOO! It’s my FAVOURITE shadow! I thought it was added to the permanent line? I have to go found out from my counter in Toronto, if it’s discontinued and they have any left, I have to buy a back-up.

I know Devon Sunset would not work for me, but it’s very pretty on you! 🙂


Jacqueline March 27, 2012 at 2:00 pm

I love Burberry lipsticks especially the Lip Cover range. Your colour choices are so pretty.


Claire March 28, 2012 at 12:26 pm

devon sunset is so beautiful! this colour brightens my face and makes me look so happy and fresh, lol. both colours look so pretty on you <3


Shannon March 30, 2012 at 1:40 am

These both look great on you and are such beautiful shades for spring! I’m putting these on my shopping list 🙂


Lisa March 30, 2012 at 5:17 am

I love the Devon Sunset! But, this brand and selection is hard to come by/limited where I am. Do you know of any other brands out there w/ similar color? Also, your eyes are lovely, may I ask what eye makeup you are wearing in those photos? Thank you!


Marilyn March 31, 2012 at 1:28 am

Wow both lip colours look lovely on you!
By the way, I like your eye make up shown in the above photos very much too! It seems to suit our everyday lives as it accentuate the eyes with just enough simplicity and prettiness. How did you do it? Could you please make a tutorial on this sometime too? Thanks!

Yesterday I ordered Devon Sunset from Nordstrom after seeing the difference between it and Pink Tulip– I wasn’t sure which would suit my very warm skin until I looked at your swatches. Thanks! I’m glad their lipstick prices aren’t sky-high just for the fun of it like some other design houses.
