Housed in the signature gunmetal magnetic lipstick case, the only difference between the Lip Glow Balm and their lipstick is the shade of the product. It looks more flat and less angular as compared to normal lipstick. However, you definitely cannot miss out the Burberry signature checkered design.
Orange Poppy, as the name indicate is a bright orange shade but swatches so sheer due to it's balmy texture. You don't feel like you are wearing a lipstick at all. It gives a 'almost your lips but better lips' with the glossy sheen but pigmentation is definitely on the downside considering it is a balm than lipstick. I can't help but compare Burberry Lip Glow Balm to Chanel Rouge Coco Shine and YSL Rouge Volupte Shine.

I would say Burberry Lip Glow Balm is more suitable for that 'barely make up day' so if you are someone who prefers stronger lip colour, it will be good news for your wallet.
I purchased the Burberry Lip Glow balm over Nordstrom at USD28. You will be glad to know they are available over our Singapore counters, so do check out in person and decide for yourself if you should grab them. :)
