No. 01 Nude Beige is a sheer light beige with a cream finish. This shade is beautiful but it can wash me out if I'm not wearing intense eye makeup. It's still more wearable than your typical light beige though because it's sheer so it doesn't look like you just applied concealer on your lips.
No. 61 Devon Sunset is a sheer coral peach with a cream finish. Compared to MAC Cut a Caper, the undertones are a lot less pink, more orangey. This is such a pretty color for summer!!
These two shades are sheer but buildable, although they aren't completely opaque even if I apply many coats. Both colors have a tendency to settle in the fine lines so it's best to apply a thin layer if you have deep lines on the surface of your lips.
Texture-wise, it's a thin formula that doesn't feel heavy or sticky on the lips, yet it's not oily either! The finish is creamy and slightly glossy, without any visible shimmer. This product didn't feel very moisturizing on my lips, but it didn't dry them out either!

Burberry Kisses Hydrating Lip Colour in No. 61 Devon Sunset :
They have good staying power considering the fact that I rarely get more than 3 hours of wear with light shades anyway. They lasted 2.5 hours on me. Darker shades usually last longer but I didn't try any so I don't know for this formula.
These lipsticks are worth a try if you can't stand perfumey lip products, or if you prefer a lightweight feel on the lips!
The Burberry Kisses lipsticks retail for $36 CAD for 3.3g.
