Birchbox Review - Mirenesse Glossy Kiss in 14 Perfect Kiss



It seems I'm going liptastic on my blog at the moment. I'm back to share with you another lipstick product that I've been trying out recently. This one came in my April Birchbox this month. I've never heard of Mirenesse before but I was excited to try a lipstick in pencil form as I have never tried one before. My shade is 14 Perfect Kiss which so happens to be a pinky/deep-natural colour with a hint of gold shimmer.



They look very similar to the Soap and Glory Motherpucker Lip Gloss Sticks but these are a lot less tacky. This product is literally the softest thing I have come across - even more so than the Revlon Lip Butters. It glides on with high pigmentation and perfect shine. All you need to do is sharpen the pencil when the lipstick gets blunt to reveal more product.



I think it looks a lot more flattering in this picture than it did on me. It looks a lot more pink here too. When I initially applied it, my reaction was that it was quite a deep, natural pink shade with a strong gold shimmer to it. It was extremely soft on the lips which meant that it felt extremely moisturising too. But softness isn't always a good thing as I swiftly realised. Soon the lipstick had worn off and I needed to apply more. It was easy to do this but it felt like somewhat of a hassle as I had only just put it on.

I do really like the idea of the product and the swatch makes it look quite lovely. However I can't say that I feel terribly struck on it. I would be happy to wear it again if I wasn't planning to eat or do something that would rub it off, but it isn't my favourite lip colour out of all the ones I own. I think I am possibly a little to fair to pull it off - bright lips and almost translucent skin isn't a good look.

Did you get a Mirenesse Glossy Kiss in your Birchbox or have you tried one before? Let me know in the comments below :)

    1. Exactly. If it could just wear that little bit longer it would be perfect and I'd be really interested in checking out some other shades xxo

    1. I know. Maybe if I tried a lipstick lock product over the top it might be better xxo

  5. Not sure that understand how it is full size. Once it goes dull there simply isn't a way to sharpen all the color left in the pencil. how to you ever get to it???
