Best Bet: Burberry’s Lip Cover


Though not everyone can shell out for a Burberry trench, the Brit brand's foray into beauty is accessible to the masses. With nail polish and eye shadow trending toward the bold and glitzy this season, this collection is refreshingly natural, offering high-quality basics in ageless shades. The lip cover is a standout: creamy, richly pigmented, and packed with moisture — no Burt's Bees or gloss required. Try Nutmeg, a spiced-up rose, for everyday, or the wine-red Burgundy for after-hours. And though you can't judge a product by its packaging, these Haymarket-checked gunmetal cases are particularly lovely. They snap shut with magnetic closures, so your makeup won't wreak havoc on the lining of your handbag.
