Guerlain Cherry Pink (870) Kiss Kiss Gloss
Guerlain Cherry Pink (870) Kiss Kiss Gloss

A Subtly, Sparkled Pink

Guerlain Cherry Pink (870) Kiss Kiss Gloss ($32.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a medium pink with subtle, cool undertones and silver sparkle. Urban Decay Flushed has no sparkle and is a touch more plum. Bobbi Brown Pink Tulle is similar, perhaps a touch lighter. MAC Fabulous Fun is more fuchsia. Benefit Back to the Fuchsia has fuchsia sparkle.

Between this and Frizzy Mango, the latter is more interesting. It is sparser on the sparkle (I’m thinking it is the “gloss effect” finish, which yields a “subtle sparkling finish”), so you get lots and lots of shine that naturally helps give an illusion of fuller, plumper lips–juicy almost. The color coverage is somewhere between semi-sheer and semi-opaque; my lip freckle is muted noticeably, but there’s translucency to the overall color is the natural lip color will still show through. When I tried it on, Cherry Kiss lasted four hours, and it was incredibly hydrating both during and after wear (no desire to race for the balm).

As advertised, Kiss Kiss Gloss is non-sticky, moisturizing, and has a thicker, cushion/gel-like consistency that doesn’t feel or look heavy on the lips, but it’s not a thin gloss. It comes with a brush-type applicator, and all of the glosses have a sweet, fruity scent. If you’re familiar with Dior’s Ultra Gloss or Hourglass’ Extreme Sheen, both have a similar texture to Guerlain’s Kiss Kiss. Depending on your preference for sheer/opaque gloss and subtle/sparkle-tastic gloss, this may or may not be interesting. Myself, I tend to prefer a really sparkling finish in my gloss, but for every sparkle fiend there is a creamy fiend right around the corner :)

  1. It looks good on you, but I really, really hate this particular shade of pink. It looks SO cheap.

  2. Another pretty Guerlain gloss :D I like the other one better (as I am always partial to warmer and/or more coraly/peachy shades :P)
