I was hoping to discover the Burberry makeup range in a positive way although my discovery was quite late in the game anyway. Unfortunately, Burberry Lip Glow Oxblood has left the same impression as this posh brand itself has on me. I am just not very enthused.
Is it nice? Yes. Do you like it? Yes. Do you want more of it? No.
Burberry Lip Glow No. 23 Oxblood
As I said, it is a nice well-made lip gloss. The tube is chic and sturdy adorned with gunmetal with the signature prints, and it is the right size as well - not too tall nor too short. I personally dislike long slender lip gloss tubes with stiff wands.
The applicator may look typical but it is a nice one, too.
The doe foot applicator is bouncy and has the perfect amount of flexibility.
It was almost a year ago when Burberry promoted the "Oxblood" shade in different formulations. There are Lip Glow, Lip Mist, Lip Cover, and nail polish in the range. They all seem to vary in tone and color depths, however. From what I've seen, the Lip Glow looks coolest in the tone, and of course is is sheerest being a lip gloss.
It is a sheer red with cool brown undertones.
The color is sheer but has a presence on the lips.
This rather quickly becomes a blushed MLBB kind of shade, though.
Here is Burberry Lip Glow Oxblood in context.
(I have been sporting this look a lot lately - soft glittered smoky eyes + enlarged irises (by contacts; I am wearing Neo Vision Ruby Queen Brown here) + muted sheer red lips.)

Burberry Lip Glow Oxblood
I am not in love with it, but I still reach for it at least a few times a week. For one thing, it is very conditioning and feels wonderful on the lips without being tacky. It fades evenly, too. I wish it didn't have the outdated perfumy scent although it is faint.
