I stopped by LUSH’s Upper West Side boutique on Saturday to pick up a new bottle of Eau Roma rose-lavender facial spray (essential in dry winter weather!) and I was distracted by the new Valentine’s Day products, including The Kiss Lip Gloss. Can you blame me?
The Kiss is being billed as LUSH’s first lip gloss, but as you can see from my photo, it has a whipped, frosting-like consistency. I’d describe it as a glossy balm, rather than typical lip gloss. It has a light cherry-almond scent and a pearlescent, pale-pink sheen. It doesn’t show much pigment once it’s applied to the lips, but it feels wonderfully moisturizing. It works well alone, as a gleamy balm to enhance your natural lips, or over lipstick to amp up the color and add shine.
The Kiss includes shea butter, almond oil, and castor oil, as well as more exotic natural ingredients like cupuaçu butter, agave syrup, and guarana seed powder. It’s vegan, preservative-free (good for a year), and free of animal testing.
And then, of course, there’s that label design, like a Valentine from a hundred years ago.
What’s not to love?
The Kiss Lip Gloss ($8.95) is available at the LUSH website and LUSH shops.
