The Kisses Lipstick formula is somewhat between the Burberry Lip Covers (which now seem to have been discontinued) and the Lip Mists. It is not too sheer, or very glossy as the fabulous Lip Mist, but the texture is buildable and starts off with medium color payoff. I tried out Coral Pink, which is a bright orange-coral with a hint of pink and Rose Blush, a gorgeous dusty rose with a hint of plum. Coral Pink goes on quite sheer, but the color can be built up to a good intensity to look like it does in the tube. Rose Blush is a little more pigmented and one swipe is all I needed to cover any uneven pigmentation on my lips and add a natural rosy wash of color.
Both colors I tried were fragrance-free, which to me is the best part, since Burberry lipsticks had the strongest fragrance that used to linger on forever. The formula wore a good 3-4 hours on me and left behind a natural looking stain. I do wish they were both a little more glossy in finish though - they aren’t matte by any means, but they can look a little flat after a couple of hours once the shine wears off. I did find the formula to be quite hydrating and not heavy or cakey - it doesn’t add in any extra moisture, but doesn’t dry out lips either. The packaging is like everything else from Burberry - weighty, beautiful and closes with a magnetic snap. Overall, the Kisses Lipsticks are a good one to try out if you don’t like very full coverage, heavy lip colors, especially this time of the year. The formula is buildable in a nice way and the colors are all very wearable, just like everything else from Burberry is.
