Burberry Oxblood Lip Mist, Lip Cover and Lip Glow

December 23, 2013

Burberry has released four beauty variations of Oxblood colored makeup. The Nail Polish was previously featured here. In addition to the nail color, Burberry also has Oxblood in a Lip Mist No. 214 ($30), a Lip Cover No. 33 ($30) and a Lip Glow No. 23 ($27). Each lip product is slightly different in finish and color so you can select one according to your preference for a burgandy pinkish red lip.

Oxblood No. 214 Lip Mist is the most red of the three. It’s a semi-glossy semi-tacky lipstick. It’s a dark wine color in the tube but applies cool-toned and red, almost pinkish. The slightly sticky texture helps the color adhere well to the lips and prevents it from sliding off. The benefit of the slight transparent finish is that it will fade nicely on the lips without appearing obvious.

Oxblood No. 33 Lip Cover is the most pigmented color. It’s also a deep wine red with a slightly glossy finish, but it’s rich in color like a regular lipstick. This one required careful application to prevent bleeding or smudging. Lasting power was quite good and it left a slight stain on the lips after a few hours of wear. It’s quite dramatic in a beautiful way.
Oxblood No. 23 Lip Glow is a semi-dark wine pink in the tube. It applied quite a bit lighter and pinker on the lips. This one is my favorite of the three, mainly because it is the softest but still has quite a bit of color. It has a transparent finish with a high shine. If you want more color or pigment, you may want to opt for MAC’s Desire Lipglass (a staple of mine). Or simply layer this one over a darker lip liner or either of the Oxblood lipsticks.

With all three shades, you need to apply carefully and accurately. I recommend blending or smoothing the edges
with a lip brush for even application. There is a sharp contrast for me
between my natural lip color and these Oxblood lip items. The lip
swatches below were applied straight from the tubes, you can see that
it’s slightly uneven in the pictures so you can see a bit of the edges
of the lip. Do note that most wine-colored items tend to pull fuschia or blue on me. Your mileage may vary depending on your skin and lip tones.

Comparisons swatched: Burberry Blueberry Lip Mist is more brownish, MAC Desire Lipglass is the perfect match to the Oxblood Lip Cover, Tom Ford’s Black Orchid is more blueish, Chanel Fiction applies more red.
For other swatches, I recommend checking out the swatches on Cafรฉ Makeup, Gummy Vision and Vanity Fashionista
I’m particularly smitten with all three colors. They are quite bold for
me (I normally wear neutral or peachy lips). I find them perfect for the
holiday season or special occasion. They are dramatic for me without
being too bright or too dark.
I purchased mine all at Nordstrom: Lip Mist here, Lip Cover here, Lip Glow here and Nail Polish here (back in stock).

  • Hey Sabrina, thanks so much for the post! I might need to pick up the Lip Mist! I'm big on pigmented lipsticks, but the Lip Mist version of Oxblood looks like something I can wear every day ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Oooh, I never even realised that there were several versions of Oxblood! I'm actually loving each version, it's great that Burberry gives you several options ^^.

  • Kristina

    Beautiful photos and review! I think I like the lip glow best for me as I almost never wear a color like this. But, these look fab on you. Still lemming the Oxblood nail lacquer …:)

  • Ugh, how gorgeous are all these colors???

  • Pretty shades

  • I would usually go for lip cover, but I find lip mist would be way more usable for every day wear, so I guess I'll get that one… I haven't got any Burberry in a while.

  • The Oxblood Lip Mist is being delivered today!

  • Gosh, so stunning! What a lovely shade range for this time of year. The Lip Cover looks especially rich and pretty! xo

  • I will take them all please, thank you! x

    ลฝiva from Nothin' Fancy. Really.

  • These are gorgeous, the cover and the glow are my fave.

  • Meredith

    Surprisingly, I like the Lip Cover on you very much. I know this is a shade you usually don't wear but for evening, I think it's gorgeous on you! It shows off your beautiful skin. If you feel it's a bit strong, or for daytime use, try blotting and perhaps using a touch of Cle de Peau's lip balm under or over it, if blotting makes your lips too dry.

  • Oh so pretty! Thanks for the great comparisons! I ended up getting and loving both the lip mist and lip cover – they are so gorgeous and really so different in effect! I skipped the lip glow because its very similar to Hibiscus, which I already have, and I didn't think the difference would show up on my pigmented lips.

  • I don't usually wear lip colors that bold either, but all three versions look particularly lovely on you. Really beautiful.

  • I was thinking how beautiful the Lip Mist was on you and then I scrolled on down to the Lip Cover–Wow! That shade is equal parts stunning and sophisticated. You look so sexy gorgeous. But, in truth, Sabrina, your lips are so beautifully shaped, you could smear them with ketchup and we'd all want to know where to buy it! LOL

    Happy Holidays to you and all those you hold near and dear–including your little furry friends ๐Ÿ™‚

  • OOoooh. These look amazing on you! i may have to take a closer look – i was sort of ignoring them as I don't love the scent of their lip products all the time but maybe it would be worth it for one of the oxblood shades!

  • Thank you so much for the shout out ๐Ÿ™‚ I only bought the Lip Cover but after seeing your post, I'm thinking I need the Oxblood Lip Mist as well…they all look gorgeous on you!! Beautiful pictures and review, as always! xoxo ๐Ÿ™‚
