Want a lip product that hugs the lips with a sumptuous coat of colour? Burberry has a new lip pen that does it all

Women are pretty much spoilt for choice when it comes to lip products. From pencils, felt pens, glosses, stains to liquid lipsticks, there's a finish, effect and texture for every preference. Adding on their Burberry Kisses collection, Burberry Beauty introduces Burberry Full Kisses — fourteen shades of lip pens that deliver hydration and colour to the lips, while enhancing their shape in one stroke. Not only do the lips look perfectly shaped and plumped up, they have a lumnous colour finish.

Shaped like a chubby pencil, Burberry Make-Up Artist Consultant Wendy Rowe says, "Full Kisses is such a great multi-tasking lipstick. It delivers full colour that lasts and sculpts the lips, making them look fuller and more defined — all in just one stroke. It's perfect for on-the-go application, you don't even need to use a mirror." How so? The unique felt top tip follows each curve of the lip for precision application, yes even for those who have angular or unusual lip shapes. The high impact colour — popular shades include the classic Military Red and the full-bodied Oxblood — will definitely catch the eye. Best of all, these babies don't have a heavy feeling on the lips and last for up to eight hours.


Here the face of the campaign, British model Suki Waterhouse, shares some of her makeup tips as well as her must-have lippie and lipgloss shades.

How would you describe your style when it comes to makeup?
I love getting made up and I'm really lucky that I get to have amazing artists do my makeup but for daily life, I like to let my skin breathe or just pop on a little bit of Fresh Glow B.B Cream. If I'm going out in the day, I'll take a Burberry Kisses lipstick and use it as both a lipstick and a blush.
