A glimpse at the lips: Burberry's Lip Glow in Pink Sweet Pea No. 20

 Pink Sweet Pea

Pink Sweet Pea

In middle school Bath and Body Works was all the rage. If I close my eyes I can still smell the girls locker room -- it wreaked of Sun-Ripened Raspberry, Freesia and Sweet Pea. I often would choke from the popular girls' chosen scents; let's face it, I wasn't ready to be a girl-y girl at 13.

Seventeen years later bright lippies and perfume bottles now clutter my bathroom shelves.

Burberry's Lip Glow in Pink Sweet Pea is a bright fuchsia pink with shimmery blue undertones. The perfume scent is ever-present, yet is something I look past due to its far more appealing qualities..

  • opaque coverage
  • lasts for hours
  • silky smooth and non-sticky

And it looks wicked awesome.

It's the lip gloss you never knew you always wanted. I'm looking at you, Diana.

Pink Sweet Pea has been my go-to lippie companion. If I don't have it on me I suddenly feel like Linus sans blanket.
