Burberry Lip Mist in Pink Heather No.210

Pink Heather No.210 ($30; burberry.com) is a sheer, pinky nude, one of many neutral shades of Lip Mists by Burberry. Pink Heather is a very light pink, with just a hint of beige and a very nice neutral to pair with a stronger/smokey eye.

Burberry Pink Heather No.210 Lip Mist



Burberry's Lip Mists are supposed to be a sheer washes of color with a glossy sheen. Pink Heather is sheer, but much less glossy than a few other lip mists I've tried. The color is beautiful though - its a great neutral to have if overly cool toned, pink based neutrals tend to wash you out. Pink Heather doesn't wash me out so much when worn with a good, flawless looking base. Otherwise, it does look a touch pale on my pigmented lips, but definitely not bad enough on its own. Its a great color that pairs with a ton of neutral and sheer pink glosses and I prefer it that way than wearing it alone.The formula wears comfortably for about 3-4 hours - its not drying, but at the same time, does not provide any extra dose of moisture. My only qualm though, like with all other lipsticks from Burberry, is the scent. That apart, Pink Heather is definitely worth looking into if nude pinks and neutral lip colors in general are something you'd wear often.

Beige Adage, is just the sort of color I would gravitate towards, if I had to choose one. Its a sheer, rosy pink with a hint of beige. The color turns up just as it looks in the tube, with just a teeny tiny hint of shimmer. There's a very mild fragrance - I'm quite sensitive to scents in my lip products and this one doesn't bother me at all. Beige Adage has very nice color payoff - there's enough color to even out my natural (uneven) lip pigmentation while providing a lovely with a wash of pink, in just one swipe. The intensity is perfectly buildable and the formula feels super comfortable even on my very dry lips. Although Lip Lover has a very smooth, creamy texture, it is just a tad thicker than your average lip gloss, but the color evens itself out very well and the applicator does a fantastic job at even application, smoothing out dry patches, if any. There's a beautiful hint of shine that fades after an hour or so, while the color lasts about 3-4 hours on me. Overall, I love it - the formula is fantastic, not too sticky, effortless to wear and perfect for the warmer months ahead.

NUDE Skincare Miracle Mask

NUDE Skincare's Miracle Mask ($48; sephora.com) is an exfoliating mask that helps brighten, polish and revive dull, tired skin. Formulated without any Parabens, Artificial Dyes, Synthetic Fragrances, it exfoliates with the help of glycolic acid and rice beads, leaving skin feeling super smooth and glowing. *Press Sample




The mask itself has teeny tiny exfoliating granules in a clear base. I just apply a light layer on my face, leave it on for a few minutes ( NUDE suggests massaging it for one minute and leaving it on for five) and wash off. If my skin is feeling particularly congested, I use a washcloth to remove. I do have pretty sensitive skin and I found this to be gentle enough not to irritate or cause any redness. Neither did it dry me out. The results were pretty fabulous - my skin looked smoother, more polished and the mask added a nice glow. It is very similar to REN's Glycol Lactic mask, another one of my favorite exfoliating masks. The glycolic acid content tends to leave skin a bit sensitive, making it a little more susceptible to sunburn, so be sure to slather on a good sunscreen, if you plan to step out soon after. I usually prefer doing exfoliating masks like these in the night. Overall, I love it - its a really nice mask that exfoliates without too much effort and leaves your skin feeling nice and smooth.
