Smooth Smooch: Cara Delevingne has Lips like Velvet


For Fall, the Burberry face is framed by strong brows, nude lids, soft lashes and a rich, matte lip

Now you can get your puckers to match your Prorsum separates: Burberry Beauty has rolled out its latest autumnal covetables, the gorgeous Lip Velvet collection of matte lipsticks.

We've tried it out for ourselves and it's hard to describe in words the glimmering yet gloss-less nature of the beautifully packaged sticks. Just one swipe and our lips popped dramatically, without creasing and drying out our smackers like most other stick formulas.

Even supermodels apply their own make-up! For a less dramatic daytime look, rub the Velvet Lip shade of your choice between your fingertips, then smudge gently outwards from the middle of your lips

Proffered in twelve tints with very evocative, very British monikers like Bright Poppy (No. 311) and Hawthorn Berry (No. 312), the Lip Velvet sticks are imbued with wild rose extracts to keep your plumpers plump and hydrated, and the top-notch waterproof pigments mean this is a "use once" grooming accoutrement—a boon for busy women rushing from boardroom to ballroom. 

A contemporary take on the "old" lipstick, the faceted titanium-like metal casing is also embossed with a blown-up Burberry check motif, for something you'll be proud to brandish in the powder-room. Scroll through to see Burberry Beauty Cara Delevingne striding down the Fall runway and showing off her makeup skills, and get a stick of your own to stash away in your minaudière!

In a brilliant bit of marketing, the Lip Velvet range of hues complement the colorways used in Burberry Prorsum's Fall 2012 pret-a-porter
