Kiehl's Lip Gloss - Pink Rider

I've spoken before about my grá for all things Kiehl's and at length about my obsession with lipgloss. But what happens when you combine the two?

My personal gloss Nirvana. That's what.

Kiehl's Lip Gloss is light, non sticky and because its made with grape seed extract, rose extract and apricot kernel oil it smells and tastes delicious. (Yep, I know I'm not meant to be eating it).

Ingredients that make the deliciousness
My choice, the unfortunately named Pink Rider, is a creamy, dusky pink that wears as a sheer hint of blush pink. The vitamin E has done wonders for my poor winter lips (when I don't lick it straight off).

A lot of hesitation to buy Kiehl's comes from the fact that this stuff ain't cheap. Even with their recent lowering of prices in Ireland their products are still on the steep side. At €16 a tube for one of 10 colours, these glosses certainly aren't throwaways but I've said it before & I will again, I've always found with this brand you're getting the quality you pay for. I'm obviously not alone in that mindset as these glosses have been intermittently sold out online for weeks now but are restocked continuously. 

Sheer pink with subtle micro glitter for shine

The only downside I can find with this gloss is the need to reapply a little bit more than I'm happy with, if I could stop licking the shaggin' thing that might be rectified.

If you're in the market for some TLC for your kisser or looking for a little Valentines self gift I'll heartily (geddit) recommend a Kiehl's Lip Gloss. You could either keep an eye on the online store or pop into one of their gorgeous shops in Wicklow St or now in Dundrum Town Centre. The staff are always super helpful and even very generous with the samples. What's not to love?

Have you tried this gloss before? Or do you have a HG gloss that you'd recommend?
