It’s definitely a bit difficult getting back into the blogging mindset, but I’ve been home since 3 AM on Friday and as much as I loved my guest posters, it’s time for some new content from me. I’m actually pretty excited about the Burberry First Kiss Glossy Lip Balm in Soft Plum* I’m sharing in this post, because it’s a product I reached for almost daily during my 3+ weeks away. Really, the only days I didn’t use it was because I left it in another purse.
The Burberry First Kiss Glossy Lip Balm is a lightly tinted lip treatment with a ceramic applicator in a colour-coordinated tube. There are 5 shades available and I have the darkest one, Soft Plum, but it’s still very sheer. I’m usually not a fan of a squeeze-tube for a lip product, but I love this cooling ceramic applicator. It feels really nice to apply, and then the product itself feels great too. Perfect for those winter-worn lips!
Honestly, photographing lip swatches of the Burberry First Kiss Glossy Lip Balm in Soft Plum was probably not the best use of my time, because it’s so sheer, but I’ll share them anyway. I’m always concerned with products like this that they will pool in fine lines, but there’s absolutely no issues at all. It’s a very light hint of pink on the lips, so you probably don’t need all the shades, but you definitely do need one because they are so lovely to wear!
In terms of the formula, the Burberry First Kiss Glossy Lip Balm in Soft Plum has a very glossy finish but it feels moisturizing on the lips like a balm. It’s almost like a melted lip treatment. It’s very forgiving to wear on dry lips, and I definitely feel like it helps improve them. It’s not at all sticky, and as expected the wear is only an hour or two without eating or drinking. However it is really convenient (and comfortable!) to reapply.
I know some people have the mindset to save the splurges for more pigmented products, but I have to say that this is definitely one of the nicest glosses I have ever used and I have already gotten a ton of winter use out of it in comparison to a red lipstick. If you are looking for a very comfortable but sheer lip treatment definitely consider the Burberry First Kiss Glossy Lip Balm in Soft Plum! What do you think?
