Kiss My Face Shimmer in Garnet and Lip Balm in Ginger Mango

Kiss My Face is an eco-friendly brand that uses natural ingredients, something that is particularly good with lip products because quite a bit of them gets consumed! I tested out two, the Kiss My Face Shimmer in Garnet* and Lip Balm in Ginger Mango*.

Kiss My Face Shimmer in Garnet and Lip Balm in Ginger Mango 2The Kiss My Face Shimmer in Garnet provides a sheer wash of colour in a wine-red with the expected amount of shimmer in it, while the Kiss My Face Lip Balm in Ginger Mango is an entirely transparent traditional lip balm.

Kiss My Face Shimmer in Garnet and Lip Balm in Ginger Mango 4The Kiss My Face Lip Balm in Ginger Mango is certified organic and made with beeswax which gives it a moisturizing and comfortable feel on the lips with quite a bit of shine to it. The lasting powering is as expected for a lip balm, not great, but it is very easy to reapply. The scent is very unique, a bright mango with a hint of ginger, and it’s really delicious. Luckily, there is no flavour. I probably own enough lip balm to last me for several centuries, but this is a good one that I can feel good about using, so it is definitely a welcome addition to the stash. My only criticism is that I wish it had SPF in it.Kiss My Face Shimmer in Garnet and Lip Balm in Ginger MangoThe Kiss My Face Shimmer in Garnet reminds me quite a bit of a similar product I own several of from Burt’s Bee, a slightly tinted, shimmery, minty balm. The scent is vanilla mint, and while there’s no flavour there is a slight tingly feeling on the lips. The coverage is quite sheer and it just provides a bit of a tint that mainly looks a little shimmery from afar. It is comfortable to wear but not as moisturizing as the lip balm. It’s not my favourite because I’m not a huge fan of the minty-tingle feeling in lip products and I don’t think this shade is super-flattering on me.

Kiss My Face Shimmer in Garnet and Lip Balm in Ginger Mango 3Overall, I think both the Kiss My Face Shimmer in Garnet and Lip Balm in Ginger Mango are great eco-friendly lip options from a brand I am definitely interested in trying more of.
