The Kiss Lip Gloss has yet again made a return as a part of Lush’s Valentine’s Day range. Sharing its scent with my favourite of the Lush lip scrubs, The Kiss I can never help but pick one up.
When I very first ordered this lip gloss I wasn’t at all aware that it was a lip gloss, I thought it was either a lip balm or a lip tint. It wasn’t until I had it in front of me that I realised what it was. Stupid I know, after all it’s not like it is labelled as ‘The Kiss Lip Gloss’ in an inconspicuous way.
I’m not a huge fan of lip gloss purely because it’s a nightmare to have on when you have long hair. The wind just has to blow a little bit for your hair to get stuck to your mouth, it’s easy enough to unstick, lip gloss is however not very flattering in your hair. There’s only so much it can take before people start to think you missed a bit of gunk the last time you washed it.With this in mind I was pretty positive that I wouldn’t get on with the, The Kiss lip gloss I am however pleased to let you know that I actually quite like it.
First of all it smells exactly the same as the Lip Scrub, secondly it isn’t as glossy as I had feared. I would describe it as more of a lip butter, Although it is not quite as moisturising as a lip butter, just very similar in consistency. It’s packed with natural ingredients that are all very good for lips. Shea butter and coconut oil are great at moisturising the lips while a mix of mandarin oil and almond oil softens and brightens them.
The Kiss glides onto your lips very easily and you can layer it up to add to its subtle, light pink colour. If you’re like me and don’t like too much product, you can just dab on the one coat to add a light shine to your lips.
This lip gloss is not my favourite from the Valentine’s range however when it is paired with the lip scrub it’s brilliant. The only thing I’m not sure about is the taste of it. I know you’re not supposed to eat it but it does go on your lips so naturally I’d prefer it to taste a little bit better than it does.
