The beauty addict in me now has fewer miles to travel for it, or can even let it deliver at home.
Moreover, it is easy to get it wrong when going for a lip-pencil. One that is too soft will have the tendency to fade/get blotchy or dissapear into the (beginning) finer lines of the mouth...ouch. One too hard cannot position the colour right, or worse, the pulling around the mouth just creates new lines.

My habit of sizing up:
|Burberry Lip Definer vs Chanel Precision Lip Definer|
Because I have Chanel already included, I will show you swatches of them both. However, (you'll see), Chanel Naturel will come in handy later.

My lipstick in Rosewood:
The Rosewood lip-liner is also quite matte and a lot cooler-toned (mauve spectrum of the Rose). I do not mind this for matching the natural colour of the mouth, but it doesn't seem too consistent of Burberry to make the colours among the same name quite different in colour.
For the rest I believe Burberry lippencils are a close to perfect in quality. They are not too hard but neither too soft. Moreover, they hardly fade and if they do after quite some time (6-7 hours) it does not appear to go blotchy.
Overal, an semi-expensive working horse (€ 18) but quite worth it.
