Of all categories of makeup, lip gloss is probably my least favorite thing to buy. I'm just not much into it lately. Then why did I buy the new Burberry First Kiss Glossy Lip Balm? Hello, have you seen the packaging? Yep! Totally got sucked into it because of the beautiful packaging! But we all know Burberry; they don't just make pretty-looking products, they perfect the formula, too. And this gloss has made me want to sport shiny lips more often again.

Burberry released 5 colors of their First Kiss Glossy Lip Balm this season. Each color comes with its own corresponding colored tube. At first glance I wanted to collect them all but seeing how sheer they are, they would probably look all the same on my pigmented lips. I went with No. 03 Rose Blush which is the more pigmented shade. It is a fresh and fun rose pink color that I think everyone can wear beautifully.

The big selling point of these glosses is possibly the ceramic applicator tip. It offers a really nice cooling effect when you apply it directly on your lips. It helps the formula glide on much more smoothly than your typical doe-foot sponge applicator. Plus, it's more hygienic and easier to clean. Just a quick wipe with a tissue and it looks brand new again.

First Kiss Glossy Lip Balm is fragrance and lanolin-free. The formula is supposedly a hybrid between a lip gloss and a lip balm but in my experience, it has a “lip oil” feel to it as well. The consistency is thin and lightweight with a very sheer color payoff. It is somewhat buildable but only slightly. If you have super pigmented lips, the color might not even show up at all.

The finish is ultra glossy comparable to that of a true lip gloss! The shine lasts for a while, too, somewhere between 1-2 hours before setting to a more subtle shine. The wear time overall is approximately 3-4 hours which is quite long for a non-sticky gloss.

I love how it leaves my lips soft and drenched in healthy hydration while providing a smoothing and slight plumping effect as seen below! Rose Blush applies nicely and evenly onto lips without highlighting lip imperfections. It doesn't settle into vertical lip lines even when you over apply! Just a hint of rose pink and a lot of shine. :)

As with any glosses, First Kiss Glossy Lip Balm can be worn alone to instantly add moisture, color, and shine, or over a lipstick for an extra glossy and plumping effect! This is a lip gloss I would recommend to those preferring non-sticky, tinted sheer gloss with deeply nourishing formula and high shine (and who wouldn't mind reapplying after a few hours!).

  • Nice color, but I am just not into these sheer glosses…

  • Erin says:

    Sounds good to me, I hate sticky gloss. As I’ve aged, I find I prefer lipstick more just because pet hair or my hair doesn’t get stuck in it!

    How is the hair sticky factor here?

    This reminds me of a more elegant and nourishing Juicy Tube!

  • Agata says:

    I don’t like lipglosses all that much either, especially sheerer ones but this one looks really nice. The packaging is pretty too!

    • Jaa says:

      I like this one for layering, Agata! It’s perfect for that. By itself, it doesn’t do much on my pigmented lips. :)

  • Xuvious says:

    It looks great and I’m glad you approve! I heard these are similar to Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfectors, which come with the spongy thing that gets really gross. I want to check out some other colours though! :)

    • Jaa says:

      I still have yet to try those Clarins ones! So not right of me as a blogger when everyone else is raving about them! ;D I think I’ll do just fine with the sponge applicator because I will just dab it on the back of my hand first and pick up with my finger or disposable lip brush. I’m a freak when it comes to keeping my makeup applicator clean. ^_^”

  • Fiona says:

    This one looks good.

  • Jen says:

    Ooh, this looks and sounds lovely! I spotted these in-store recently and was definitely curious! Will have to give them another peek :)

    • Jaa says:

      Yeah please do! I think they are worth checking out. I myself want to own every single shade but they would all probably look the same on me. :)

  • Jen says:
