I was planning to get this post up for Easter but obviously that didn’t happen. I was trying to tie this product in with an Easter theme because it’s egg shaped:
Weak, I know! 😛
I received the Super Kisses set for Christmas in my stocking. The set itself is no longer available, but 2 of the 3 shades are still available individually.
The Sephora Kiss Me Balms aren’t a new product, I first learned about them in late 2014 through a video from Emily Noel – besides being like eos balms, she mentioned the smell and the tint – I was intrigued! So I put this on my Christmas wish list for the in-laws. My MIL always requests a wish list from me and she chooses items off there to buy for me. It’s a win-win situation! 😉
The set comes with 3 flavours / colours (L to R):
• Cotton Candy – cool pink (permanent)
• Soda Pop – deep plum (permanent)
• Fruit Rouge – rosey red
You’d think these would be really sheer, right? Bam:
They pack a punch! But it’s the scent of these that get me! The Soda Pop is just like cherry cola!!! I love anything cherry cola scented! 😀 The colour is also a fabulous plummy hue. The Fruit Rouge smell reminds me of Tahitian Treat (which is now banned in Canada due to the red dye!) – there’s a slight sweet taste to all of them. My least favourite is Cotton Candy because it has shimmer in it, and the shade is a touch too milky cool toned for my liking. Formula-wise, they’re quite hydrating and wear off nicely and do leave a trace of a stain behind.
There’s quite a bit of product in these spheres, at 5.8g each, but it’s still slightly less than eos’ lip balms which contain 7g. And just like the EOS lip balms, they’re bulky – but at least they’re easy to find in the purse.
I highly recommend the Soda Pop flavour out of these 3 from the set. At $8 a pop, they’re an inexpensive treat! 🙂
These are made in China and sold exclusively at Sephora stores and online.
