Quick Reviews: Guerlain Brun Satin Kiss Kiss Strass

Guerlain Brun Satin (343) Kiss Kiss Strass ($31.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a semi-sheer rose-tinged brown with multi-colored shimmer-glitter. Kiss Kiss Strass comes in typical Guerlain packaging, except it comes in silver casing rather than the gold casing of Kiss Kiss Strass. The lipstick still has the traditional sweetened rosy scent of Guerlain lip products, and it’s not quite as subtle as the Rouge G line, though not as heavy as the Kiss Kiss range either. Kiss Kiss Strass has this really shimmery, glittering-water type of effect on lips and doesn’t feel chunky despite all that shimmer. It is smooth, soft, and doesn’t suck the moisture from your lips.

Welcome to Swatch-all-idays! To start 2011 off on the right foot (or post, as it may be!), Temptalia is going through a backlog of products we have photographed, swatched, and often tested but in a slightly different manner. Quick reviews may be partially incomplete, such as a blush may only be swatched on the arm rather than shown on the face. It is our hope that what we are able to provide is still helpful!
