Being a writer, I love to play word association games, and when the word “rain” or “mist” is mentioned, the fashionista side of my brain takes over and my immediate response is Burberry. Who doesn’t covet one of their fabulous plaid lined raincoats? Wearing one makes those rainy, misty day tolerable. Well, almost.

While Burberry’s raincoats are designed to keep moisture out, the new Lip Mist collection from Burberry Beauty will keep moisture in. This new sheer formula is created with wild rose which contains vitamin C and other emollient ingredients that stimulate collagen production and restores elasticity.

Perfect for summer when we want a sheer look on our lips, the nine color collection has a delicious range, from cinnamon, brown sugar and blueberry to pretty in pink shades of camellia, stormy and feather. They saved classic beige for the rainwear thankyouverymuch. The Lip Mists glide on easily and add a pop of slightly transparent color, unlike the Burberry Lip Covers which I adore for winter and cover completely. Touches of luxury and quality make this the tube you want to pull out of your purse and show off. The famous plaid is etched right into the actual lipstick as well as on the square metal tube which magnetically snaps into place so it’ll never open up while it’s floating around your handbag. Love that!

Burberry’s makeup artist Wendy Rowe says it’s a “wearable lipstick that every girl can use for conditioning the lips while giving a subtle sheer natural color.” Additionally she suggests either “wearing straight onto the lips from the stick, or dab onto lips with a finger for a dewy finish, to give a hint of color to the lips”. Either way, it’ll add some sunshine to your smile!
