Cameo Pink was my idea of a neutral pick, something with enough color to pop against my mauve-toned lips yet not be so bold that I could not wear it daily. The other lighter pinks [usually the kind I am interested in first] offered in the Lip Glow range are pretty sheer, and have been reviewed by Sabrina of The Beauty Look Book, so I avoided those because I knew from her review that they would only appear as clear gloss on my medium-pigmented lips. I was surprised, however, to see that Cameo Pink was so bright and red, like the flesh of a ripe watermelon, in the tube. On the lips, Cameo Pink is significantly more subdued.
I adore how lightweight the formula feels. It is a longer lasting version of the Dior Addict glosses, which are beautifully fluid but only last for an hour on my lips because the water content is so high. The Burberry Lip Glow has more of a gel feel, more dense [more binders] yet very comfortable, which I'm assuming allows the gloss to last longer. One caveat.. Cameo Pink has a very frosty finish, much frostier than I am usually comfortable with, but I must admit it makes my lips look exceptionally more plump. You'll see if you play the video below, the swatches don't show how frosty the color is against my skin!
When built up with two layers, the color appears more pink [top swatch]. With one even coat, however, Cameo Pink actually reads more toward a pink-peach [bottom swatch]! Either way, it's a beautiful everyday look. Cameo Pink is pretty moisturizing as well, not quite hydrating.. but no peeling to be seen from these sensitive lips, hooray!

Bottom Line: I've been loving Armani's Gloss D'Armani lipglosses these days, but I want more Burberry Lip Glow lipglosses! The pigment isn't quite as sheer, and the price point is just right. I think I'll try the tangerine shade, No. 8 next. Thanks for pushing me over the edge, Kristie :)
