The Kiss Kiss formula is supposed to be hydrating with a “fine, even, and rich creamy texture” with “impeccable hold.” For me, they are in-between the Rouge and Shine Automatiques in terms of feel and color coverage. They tend to have a bit of translucency to them, so they’re not as pigmented as the Rouge Automatiques, but they’re more pigmented and less glossy compared to the Shine Automatiques. Rouge Gs are creamier and more hydrating, and they’re typically a little more opaque. Peach Satin is mostly opaque with some translucency where the natural lip color will come through. It was creamy with noticeable slip and glided on easily, but it was a formula that would show “lines” if you press your lips together and could have applied more evenly. It wore well for four hours on me and was hydrating, but it’s not particularly long-wearing. The formula has a violet scent but no discernible taste.
