Since the recent release of Guerlain’s new formula Kiss Kiss lipsticks for Autumn 2014, i have been dying to try them out.
I am a huge fan of lipstick and it is a necessary part of any makeup routine, unless you have amazing lips like Angelina Jolie of course and no i don’t sadly!
The new formula is now enriched with hyaluronic acid spheres to aid with lip plumping and retaining moisture; commiphora myrrha oil and mango butter to keep lips smooth and hydrated.
It comes in 25 shades and my counter held 9 of them of which; Baby Rose was one.
Gone is the gold packaging to be replaced with a more dramatic, modern black packaging instead.
I tried out the lipstick in store on the back of my hand. It came out as a nudish pink with golden shimmer. I was smitten instantly. It is quite sheer on the lips and feels very moisturising. I don’t mind this type of lipstick for everyday wear and especially when i’m in work. Reason being is that they don’t dry my lips out. I do prefer a more intense opaque lipstick for evening wear though.
This sheer style of lipstick will not last all day; however, because it leaves lips feeling moisturized it’s going to be great in the winter when my lips become dry and flaky.
I also noticed that the golden shimmer is a tad gritty on my lips too. Not a bad thing for me because i don’t have sensitive lips; however, if you do, avoid this shade or any with shimmer in. The fragrance on this lipstick is a very mild floral scent, you have to get very close up to notice it.
This shade is by no means unique and could probably be duped quite easily. I have compared it with some other pink lipsticks above no flash, below with flash. Chanel Seduisante from the Rouge Allure Intense range came up the closest match along with the disc. Chanel Rouge Allure Enivrée.
A very nice moisturizing lipstick along the lines of Chanel Rouge Coco Shine and Dior Addict lipsticks. It gives a fair amount of colour which is ideal for a nude look, smokey eye or day time wear at work. This one did come up the most sheer out of the 9 shades on offer and the other shades were much stronger in shade and opaqueness; however, i was looking more for a nudish pink that i can wear with stronger eye makeup and for work. I absolutely love the black packaging too.
Have you tried out these lipsticks yet? Take care and i will see you all soon. 😉
