Burberry First Kiss Glossy Lip Balms ($26; sephora.com), are a new launch and a hydrating lip treatment with a beautiful wash of color, that come in five sheer shades.
The glossy balm comes in a squeeze tube with a ceramic applicator tip. I picked up Rose Blush, a shiny, rose pink with no shimmer or glitter and a very gorgeous sheer wash of pink that can be worn alone or topped off over any lipstick. The packaging is very convenient and the ceramic tip is quite nice to apply the gloss with. It can get a tad patchy, but it is also easy to even things out. While I do like the packaging, I would have preferred a sponge tip applicator, but on the plus side, this one is far more hygienic and easy to clean. The gloss balm itself is non-sticky, very glossy, quite hydrating and wears about 2-3 hours before fading completely. The formula is fragrance and lanolin free and I’m glad Burberry got rid of the cloying super strong scent. Overall, I’m really liking the new Burberry First Kiss Glossy Lip Balm and if quite sheer, glossy lip products are something you’d reach out to a lot, these are definitely nice to have.
