[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] I understand the irony of products designed to make you feel more kissy at this time when, unless you have an at-home kissee, it’s nigh on impossible, so I’m going to spin this towards down-time daily wear because as much as these are tints, they’re also nicely softening and conditioning balms. And, I love a bit of embellishment so it’s a thumbs up for the hearts.

These are also a great starting place for anyone who is lipstick shy – particularly red – because they give you colour in such a diluted way that you forget that you are crimson-lipped. As a red-shy myself (other than Gucci Rene Pink), I know it’s helpful to approach this colour (or any colour you’re nervous of) in stages of intensity.

The shades are existing – it’s just the cheery casings that are new, and of course, they’re limited edition. I can wear all of these shades because they’re so translucent but do remember that they show more strongly with lip pigment behind them than a pale arm swatch. In the line-up here from left to right: Bare Punch, Bare Blackberry and Bare Raspberry. Looking on the site, perhaps Bare Raspberry is new – it’s not listed in the regular line-up. Also Bare Raspberry implies pink but to my eye, it’s red.

In the swatch from bottom to top is Punch, Blackberry and Raspberry. These are only available (£27) at John Lewis for now (who have muddled the colour selection so take extra care if ordering) HERE, non-affiliate HERE.
