Hello Givenchy Cushion Kiss! These are the new balm/gloss hybrids launching in April in colours Coral Kiss and Berry Kiss. They remind me of the raspberry sauce that you get on a Mr Whippy at the sea-side – they have that same texture; syrupy, slippy and loose but full of colour.
The cushion applicators are the real point of difference with Givenchy Cushion Kiss – personally I like them because they’re a break from the norm but in reality they don’t make so much difference to application. It’s suggested that you massage the cushion over the lip but in reality, I think you might do this once!
If you like a very sheer lip with juicy looking shine, the formula held quite well in testing when I had thought it would disappear in moments. They’re washes of colour – highly translucent and summery with a little bit of tackiness (not like the oil formulas we’re seeing currently) – and because they’re so fruity looking, I thought there would be a fragrance, but there is nothing particular that I can discern.
Givenchy Cushion Kiss is high shine gloss done a little differently.
