Hi loves! How was your day? In today's post, I wanted to show you one of the newest additions to my lip balm collection: the Sephora Kiss Me balm. I got this one whilst I was shopping at Sephora in Lille a few weeks ago. I am all about cute and original packaging so this quickly ended up in my shopping basket, of course.
The egg-shaped packaging was the first thing that caught my eye. It reminds me a lot of the EOS lip balms , but a little bit more oval-shaped. It also looks like a christmas ornament if you ask me, maybe it's because of the colors. I think the packaging is fun and somewhat original, yet it can get a little messy if you're not careful when closing it.
Soda Pop is a deep wine color with a purple undertone (which is not really showing up on camera). The finish is very shiny, almost like a lipgloss but without the stickiness. The Kiss Me lip balms are all scented and Soda Pop smells like, well soda and coco-cola. The formula is very rich and moisturizing and feels amazing on the lips. The only thing I don't really like is the fact that the egg-shape doesn't make the application easy, and since Soda Pop is quite pigmented, especially for a lip balm, it can get a bit messy on the lips. I wouldn't be able to apply Soda Pop without a mirror, which is unusual for a tinted lip balm in my opinion. But nonetheless, I love the fact that it's super pigmented. My lips are hydrated for a couple of hours after applying this, but the color fades away pretty fast.
The Kiss Me lip balms are really fun and beautiful and they're hydrating and soft, which is just what I like. The only down-side at least for me is the shape. However, I think these are great ideas for little christmas presents (yes, I'm thinking ahead!) since they're only €6,95 (5,8g) and they're available at Sephora or online.
