I've waited until Day 30 of the Burberry month to bring you that catch-up post I've been promising because the final item isn't a color product.
Burberry Lip Cover 01 Nude Beige isn't a color that I would normally select (it's a very pale beige), but I received it as a GWP.
Burberry's Lip Covers are mainly opaque and quite creamy. Out of the three lipstick lines, I like the texture of these the best. This photo captures just how light Nude Beige really is:
This color is lovely, but very tricky for me to pull off. I'm going to do my best to show a handful of swatches.

It's a lovely nude shade. I just wish that I could pull it off. The nice thing about GWPs is that I can experiment with shades I normally wouldn't without the $30 hit.
Here is Nude Beige on my very pigmented lips. Once again (like with Rosewood), the photograph looks a lot nicer than it did in person.
In person, it gives me concealer lips, even well-blended. I decided to try a few other things to make this shade work. A natural progression is to add a gloss. Since I don't own Nude Beige gloss, I substituted Nude Gold.
It simply added a layer of sheen. Again, the photos look far better than it did in person. I'm not sure why Burberry products tend to hide imperfections in photographs.
Overall, this is a lovely nude for people with less-than-pigmented lips.
