Burberry Lip & Cheek Bloom {Peony & Rose}

Back in the Spring Burberry released six shades of the Lip & Cheek Blooms ($28).  I was intrigued by them so I picked up two shades, Rose and Peony.  These are intended to be used either as a blush or a lip color.  They look kind of creamy in the pots but, when you touch them they have a bounce and are more gel like.  They kind of remind me of the Dior Cheek Creme's except, I like the Dior ones so much better.  I have tried using these Lip & Cheek Bloom's withe many different brushes and nothing seems to work for me.  I have tried using a duo fiber brush and a synthetic blush brush but, no matter what when I go to apply them to my cheeks my foundation disperses.  They just don't sit week on top of foundation.  And they look terrible on my lips.  I tend to usually have dry lips and these just cling to the dry patches.  I am very disappointed with these.  The colors are so pretty I just wish I could get them to work for me.  

If you have any ideas on how I can get them to work please let me know !!  

Also I guess I am kind of back.  I took like a three month hiatus but, I miss blogging.  I am trying to get back into the swing of things and I have so much to show you and tell you about !!

  1. The makeup artist at my local counter said they are meant to be patted on with your fingers, doing light layers. I think these show up better if you have very fair skin.
