Wearing Burberry Beauty Lip Glow Gloss in Nude Rose No. 14
If the punchy pink Lip Covers Burberry bestowed upon counters for spring/summer 2012 were a little too pigmented for ya, not to worry, Burberry beauty. The line’s added two new long-wearing Lip Glow glosses ($27 each) that sheer look neat.
Semi-sheer Hibiscus No. 13 and sheer rosy pink Nude Rose No. 14 are like tropical waterfalls, drenching lips in moisture and shine, and what they may lack in pigment (say, compared to the epic holiday Lip Glows), they make up for in casual elegance.
I like wearing them on top of the Lip Covers for added shine and to extend the staying power of both products, but I also like how uncomplicated and pretty they look on their own.

Swatches from the left: Sheer Eye Shadow in Pale Barely No. 22; Lip Cover Lipsticks in Tulip Pink No. 27, Devon Sunset No. 28 and Primrose Hill Pink No. 30; Lip Glow Natural Lip Gloss in wands in Nude Rose No. 14 and Hibiscus No. 13
These last on my lips from 3-5 hours, although they do this abracadabra thing around the 2-hour mark, slowly transforming into a clear gloss from that point on.
I dig their stylish packaging and yummy violet flavor and scent, but for $27 a pop, it would have been nice if these colors stayed truer longer. Still, they make a great first impression, and I think that counts for a lot.
PRICE: $27 each

Good morning and happy Thursday!
I’ve been meaning to share this new snack obsession for a while and figured I should do it before I get through the entire box.
Four words: Annie’s Organic Cheddar Bunnies.
They’re like less salty Goldfish crackers in cheesier little bunny costumes, awww! — cheesier, as in more cheddar, and they’re free of artificial preservatives, too.
How’s your morning coming along? Good, I hope.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
