The gloss comes in a very cute and small egg-shaped container. The top half of the egg is a pink coloured see through plastic, while the bottom half is pink coloured and opaque. The name of the product and the brand are written in a shiny silver font, in the shape of slim strip on the bottom of the upper half. To open it, you need to unscrew the upper half of the egg, revealing a cone shaped roll-on, from which the gloss is dispensed. Very travel friendly, you can take it anywhere!
The Kiss Me gloss exists in 5 different shades. We tested and tried the 06 Soda Addiction shade. Other shades include: 01 Dreaming of dessert; 02 Peach obsession; 03 Candy desire and 05 Strawberry passion.
The Kiss Me gloss smells and tastes a little like soda flavoured candy, which is nice and reminds us of our teen years. The smell and taste vary from one shade to the next.
Inspired by Korean beauty trends, this gloss is very efficient color wise; there is a real time effect to it. At the very beginning, after application, the natural shade of your lips is enhanced. The more the product stays in contact with the skin, the more the lips become pigmented and the color lasts. As a gloss, it’s also comfortable in the sense that it doesn’t stick and doesn’t drip. You might keep feeling it on your lips for a few minutes, but that’s it!
Our only hesitation is about precision. The roll-on is quite nice and a very smart improvement on usual glosses but with very thin lips, it’s better to be in front of a mirror when you’re applying or you run a very real risk of having lipstick marks around your lips.
The Sephora Kiss Me gloss is 8ml and sold at about 6-8$ in Sephora stores and online.
