The texture is creamy, light weight and moisturizing. My lips are extra dry so lip balm is always a must. Without the lip balm, Devon Sunset peels a bit after 3 hours. The lip balm extends the moisturizing of Devon Sunset all day (about 8 hours). Devon Sunset wears well for 6 hours, although color changes (but which lipsticks don't) as it sinks into your lips. After hour 6, it's up to you to touch up or not. I prefer not because I love the transformed color.
Devon Sunset is housed in a metal square case that I think really gorgeous and elegant. Burberry check is on the case and the lipstick itself. It's kind of special. Usually you see a brand name or a brand logo or cute design (like Paul and Joe) on the lipstick. I think the check brings something different to the look but if you're a fan of the brand, I guess it won't be a surprise (like it's to me :D).

On my lips after one-hour wear. You can see now it's a peachy pink and still moisturizing. I did use a lip balm underneath. But my lips can chap even so with other lipsticks.
Makeup breakdown listed hereI think almost every prestigious cosmetic brand execute their lipsticks extremely well. It's easy (for me) to find a good moisturizing long wearing lipstick on the market. Is Burberry lip cover really special compared to other luxury brands like Chanel, Guerlain, Dior or Lancome, Bobbi Brown, Nars? I don't think so, except for the Burberry signature check mark embroidered on the lipstick. I love Devon Sunset simple for the color and its unique turn-out on my lips. And I will repurchase it for that reason. Everything else, the texture, wearing, moisturizing, packaging and price range, lands at the same level as other high-end brands.
Is it a must-have? For me yes. As I mentioned earlier, I don't have any lip color like this and know no dupe for it. Is it really a must-have for everyone? Quality-wise, no. It's an excellent lipstick but you can find the same quality from other luxury brands too. However, if you love lipsticks or love Burberry or love to try out the brand, Devon Sunset and lip cover in generally should secure a spot in your stash.
Have you try Burberry Lip Cover? What other good color would you recommend? I also have Rosewood but I'm not as excited about it.
