KIKO Kiss Balm | Benefit Lollibalm Dupe

Monday, 17 November 2014

Hello Beauties! Back in September I went down to London for the day to get my hair done and catch up with a few of my friends from when I used to live there, and while I was there I didn't want to miss the opportunity to pop into the Kiko store on Regent Street. When I used to live there, I wasn't too fussed with Kiko, I hadn't heard much about the brand and I was more interested in the higher end brands which I suddenly had access to, but since I can no longer just pop into a Kiko store, I now want everything...always the way, isn't it?

Anyway, after fighting through the crowds on the top floor of the store (always go downstairs, not many people know about it and its much quieter!) I spotted some lipsticks which looked very similar to the new releases from Benefit so I had to stop and have a look. Kiko have 7 shades available, 4 of which look very similar to the Benefit Benebalms, and since I wanted Lollibalm so bad, I thought I would try out the Passion Fruit (104) Kiss Balm as it looked identical...right down to the packaging. 

The Kiko Kiss Balms offer your lips a sheer tint of colour and are packed with shea butter and vitamins to moisturise dry lips, providing instant relief. I personally love tinted lip balms, my lips always get quite dry around this time of year and I see no reason for having to go for a boring plain lip balm when you can get one which acts as a lipstick. Passion Fruit is an orchid pink colour which is exactly the same as the Lollitint colour from Benefit and the product is pretty much exactly the same as the Benefit balms for a fraction of the price. 

The Kiss Balms are currently on sale for £4.10 on the Kiko website, which is an absolute steal. I adore these lip balms as they give me enough colour to complete a look and I find them really moisturising. I also love the sleek shiny packaging, they're just perfect for popping in your bag if you're going to be out all day. I'd really recommend these to anyone who wants to try the Benefit lip balms but are put off my the price as these are an excellent dupe!

Lots of Love,

  3. I have a few of these and absolutely love them :) I just wish Kiko was easier to get hold of, it would be amazing to see the products in person rather than order online! x


  4. I thought of Lolli Tint before reading the title! This is definitely a great alternative as the Benebalms are super expensive for what they are.

  5. Love the look and sound of this!!

  6. These are a perfect alternative option to the Benefit lip balms. Can't wait to try them out xx

  7. This sounds like such a perfect product. Since I go to school 8+ hours a day I always want something with a little tint of color, moisture and that is easy to apply and these sound like something I would love!

  8. Amazing dupe find! I have been wanting to try Lollibalm for a while, but the price is a bit steep so will definitely try this first x

  9. That's crazy how identical they look! I really love Kiko and will look out for these next time I'm in store!

  10. Ah these are so cute! I'd never be able to justify paying for Benebalm, as it's so expensive for the sheerness, but I definitely would pay for these. There's a Kiko in Leeds too :)

  11. This was exactly what I thought when I saw this range :) seems a much more reasonable price for what's basically a tinted lip balm xx

  15. I know this is an older post of yours but just wanted to say thanks for suggesting this! I've been thinking of buying Lollibalm today but wasn't sure if it was worth the money considering they aren't too pigmented - much prefer the look of this one! I reckon i'll be making a purchase :) xx
