There’s nothing I love more than to give kisses. Who doesn’t love a kiss? Kiss is such a fun word too: KISS! It sounds sweet, and happy, and a little naughty.
Even in different languages kiss sounds lovely! In Spanish, kiss is “beso”; in Italian, kiss is “baci” - and this leads us to today’s review!
Tocca, who is as well known for their delicious fragrances as they are known for their beautiful clothing, released a line of rollerball lip glosses a few months back called Aqua Baci. I know what you’re thinking: rollerball lip gloss, Joey!? Yeah, I know. It struck me as a bit unsophisticated for such an elegant line. However, after having tested all three flavors of gloss, I can only describe the Aqua Baci glosses as cheerful, fun, but grown-up. Looking past the little girl exterior, the scents, flavors, and general feel of these glosses is perfectly suited for us big girls!
The Aqua Baci glosses come in three flavors: Amalfi (apple lemon), Catania (sweet sugar vanilla), and Salina (raspberry peach). If you are at all familiar with Tocca’s absolutely dreamy scents, you could only imagine how terribly delicious these glosses taste and smell. It was hard for me to pick a favorite, but Catania’s sugary sweet and warm taste won my heart (my darling guy friend, who’s sitting on my bed as I type this, picked Amalfi as his favorite). All three glosses are clear, and not overly glossy. Wearing these won’t make you look like you drooled on yourself. They look lovely on a bare lip, and they shine (haha, I made a pun, sort of!) over lipsticks or lip liners.
What I find to be exceptional about these glosses besides their smell and taste is their moisturizing capability. These glosses are as moisturizing as my favorite lip balm (Labello, if you had to ask), and my lips feel plump and soft hours after the glossy shine wears off. I would go so far as to call these glosses a liquid balm, really. Truly, they are a treat for the lips! Mille baci to the Tocca people for thinking to create such lovely lip products.
The Aqua Baci come in 2.2mL rollerball tubes (which I find to be pretty large!) and retail for $14. They’re available on the Tocca website, and I really recommend picking one up, especially if you need a lovely pick-me-up; these are as much as an aromatherapy/taste treat as they are a lovely addition to your lip arsenal. Also, you'll be able to give delicious kisses!
