About this brand
Kosas quite simply takes our breath away. It’s a gold standard for luxe, hydrating, better-for-you ingredients combined with a sense of color and beauty that only an artist could dream up.

She uses a color-mixing technique favored by master artists to create what she describes as “elevated color cosmetics.” Her painting background guides what pigments to use and how to match skin tones to the right products.

I had been checking out this lip balm for a while before I decided to purchase it. I also decided to use it for a while before writing my review. Long story short—I love it! Hands down one of the best balms I have used to date. I originally bought the Baseline but grabbed up the new Warm Beige shade as soon as it dropped. I love using Baseline just for everyday wear, and the Warm Beige is a pretty perfect shade for me. It gives my lips just enough pigment by itself but also goes well underneath my lipglosses. This moisturizes my lips for a long time throughout the day without having to reapply nearly as often as I do with other brands. Even when the initial feel of the balm "wears off" my lips still feel very soft and moisturized. My only caveat with this balm is that I find it kind of hard to get the top off sometimes lol but it's definitely not enough to take away a star. Give this a try, you'll love it too!
I recently bought this on a whim tbh, and wasn't expecting much, but I have been reaching for it all the time. I just feel like it looks so natural but gives a mild tint that just flatters my light neutral-olive undertone so well! I am not sure if this effect will be the same on darker skin, since I'm a pretty light shade (Rare Beauty 170W), and the pigment is pretty light.I feel like the moisturizing aspect is perfect for summer and sports (as the name suggests) and will work all day with around 3 reapplications, which is pretty reasonable. The color lasts as does the moisture, and it is so easy to carry and use. You don't need a mirror to reapply, and it kinda looks cute when it goes a bit over the lip line, giving an overlined-lip look.It isn't too occlusive too, just enough. In a California summer, having pretty dry lips, this works really well.
Color Flow is perfection! Perfect nude. Good amount of product for money and light to carry. Fits nicely in pocket.
Love EVERYTHING about this Lip Balm! I’ve tried quite a few..lol. This is nourishing, long lasting, with just the perfect “Pop” of Buildable Color! Have all the shades & they are all great. Pulse being my favorite, & I just ordered the new Beige Color called Flow. Some Lip Balms & Lip Masks, literally make my lips peel. Not this stuff! Love the container as well. Makes it easy to apply, and fits in pockets & purses great! Please don’t change anything about the formula Kosas, & just continue to make more colors!! I will have them all!! Seriously I’m Love....Thank you for making an Absolutely Amazing Product Kosas!! ♥️💋♥️
