This is my first Burberry lipstick. I didn't care for the formula. It's very slippery and dried out my lips (they felt like they were starting to shrivel up 10 min after application). The Nude Rose color is a mixture of a light brown and light peach, with a splash of rose. It was not super flattering on me (NW15-20). Guessing it would be more "nude", and prettier, on someone darker. The packaging has a magnet that you have to fit on just right, so I normally sit there trying all the angles before it clicks together, also not super impressive. I won't be trying another Burberry lipstick. For reference, my faves are the Guerlain Rouge G and the Chanel Rouge Allure formulas.

As the name implies, this lipstick is a "nude rose," meaning it is a mix of beige/brown and, well, rose/pink. I believe it came out with the Fall 2011 collection and is featured in the campaign.
This lipstick does have a bit more beige-gray undertones, so it would work well if you have brighter lips that you want to tone down, while still maintaining a bit of polish and color, if that makes sense. It would also work well with smoky eyes, but if you're looking for a YLBB look, you may want to try something a little brighter, like the Antique Rose color.
Like the other Burberry lippies, this comes in the gunmetal rectangular case with the signature check imprint, and the sides of the lipstick bullet are also embossed with the check pattern. It has a rose-powder scent, and the texture is very smooth and buttery. The finish is satin - not glossy, and not matte.
Overall, I do like this lipstick and think I would repurchase if I ran out. It retails for $30USD at Saks Fifth Ave.
For reference, I am NC20-25 with dark hair and eyes, and fairly pink-toned lips.

I was sold on the name, I was sold on the look and I was sold that Allure picked this as the best nude lipcolour for fair complexions. I avoid purchasing makeup without testing it but Burberry is in limited distribution so I went for it on the Nordstrum's site. Just craving to look like one of those models in the Buberry ads. Well this one wasn't it. Nude Rose looks more rosy than it applies having a bit too much yellowy beige, managing to wash you out. I pulled out my Bobbi Brown Blondie Pink and Brownie Pink and they replicate the look in the ads much better than the actual product. I bet I can do the whole look with the pile of stuff I already own.
