Guerlain Cherry Swing (467) Gloss d'Enfer Maxi Shine
Guerlain Cherry Swing (467) Gloss d’Enfer Maxi Shine

Guerlain Cherry Swing (467) Gloss d’Enfer Maxi Shine ($30.00 for 0.25 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark pink with subtle cool undertones and plenty of gold and pink shimmer and sparkle. MAC Astral is redder and less shimmery. Korres #54 is similar but less shimmery.

On my lips, it noticeably darkens and turns my lips almost a coral-red-pink with gold and pink shimmer/sparkle. Cherry Swing has semi-sheer to semi-opaque color coverage; I would describe the underlying base color as semi-sheer but the amount of shimmer and sparkle takes it up to semi-opaque.  The new gloss formula is supposed to be hydrating, have “varying degrees of coverage and pigment intensity,” and gives “lips a shimmering, radiant and plumping finish.” Cherry Swing has a thin, featherweight consistency that’s gel-like and never sticky. For a thin gloss that doesn’t have any tack, it does wear rather well. It’s hydrating, comfortable to wear, and the shimmer and sparkle don’t travel. It has a high-shine finish that gives lips a fuller appearance.

This is really a product you have to try on to appreciate, because it sparkles and shimmers like glistening, shimmering water. If you’re a fan of shimmery lipglosses (think Chanel Glossimers, Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lipglosses, and so on), this shade is right up your alley.  It’s packaged in a long, widened tube with a black cap and a contoured doe-foot applicator. The scent is like Guerlain’s lipsticks–floral. It actually contains more than the average lipgloss (0.20 fl. oz.); and it is 25% more than Guerlain’s Kiss Kiss Gloss (0.20 fl. oz.) (and somehow, it costs $2 less). Just to put it all in perspective, one of the popular sparkling lipglosses is MAC’s Dazzleglass, is one of the worst in terms of value ($333/oz.; this Guerlain gloss is $120/oz.).

    I love it, I love it, I love it! :D

    Oh so beautiful!!! I love Guerlain……sigh.

  5. The packaging of these glosses is so beautiful and this looks lovely. I just do not get on with glosses!

  6. Looks lovely. It stands out but is not too much. I hope I don’t run into this in the store because I’ll probably buy it if I do, lol :-)

  7. I love love love love this gloss. Everything about it is absolutely gorgoues!

  8. It’s so pretty! I love the gold and warm tone it gives along with the pink.

  9. Avatar of Angie Angie

    Why couldn’t they have used the brush applicators like with the Kiss Kiss glosses? I hate doe foot applicators. :(

  10. Lucia

    this shade looks fantastic on you

  11. Miss Priss

    It is pretty but boring. I would pass on it.

  12. I like this one because it packs a lot of sparkle but at the same time a certain level of pigment! The non-sticky gel texture is another big plus!

  13. It’s beyoootiful~ But.. $30 lipgloss is not part of my vocabulary. I’ll buy all sorts of other premium products, but just not this. However, it is very pretty!

  14. I’m not convinced by this shade, but I’m looking forward to reviews of the others!

  15. Katie

    I love everything Guerlain! Gorgeous color.

  16. Avatar of Alison Alison

    It seems like only yesterday, everyone was making fun of the names… but after a Temptalia A or two, they’ll be irresistible!

  17. Avatar of Alison Alison

    OOoooh, Christine! Any reds, burgundies or berries in the lineup? :D

  18. This looks so gorgeous on you, I can’t wait for these to hit stores. Also your skin glows and looks flawless!

  19. Avatar of Amy ames

    love it! maybe when my amour glossimer runs out, i’ll give this a try next.

  20. Avatar of Precious Precious

    Definitely right up my alley! My Guerlain list keeps on getting longer. :D

  21. Avatar of rebecca blueraccoon

    Oh, this is totally up my alley, and $30 for a gloss isn’t horrid (I’ll pay $35 for a lipstick without blinking; why not $30 for a gloss?) so I may have to get one or two of these. I wish I’d looked at them when I was at the Guerlain counter yesterday!

  22. Liz

    That’s looks wonderful on you.

  23. Stacey

    Mac “appears” to cost less than most HE brands, but can cost more…because there is less product for that item….this can be deceiving. The lipsticks are a good example.

  24. This is a really pretty lip gloss!

  25. Avatar of Maggie Maggie

    That’s gorgeous–especially on you!

  26. Malina

    Loved how this looks on your lips. Is there others shades more pigmented than this one?

  27. VickyM

    This is very pretty, but not pigmented enough for my liking. Also when it comes to gloss I seem to be in love with the glossimers :P .

  28. Avatar of Laura Laura

    It’s like Giulette in gloss form!

  29. I really love the abundance of beautiful colors and the depth produced by this color! I would absolutely buy this, though, I still cringe a little about spending this much on a lip gloss, though I think this one is unique enough to merit the cost. It’s sort of how I feel about Le Metier’s lip cremes. But, when I found my version of the “my lip color but better” shade, it made it instantly worth it. The amount of time it would take for me to find another similar shade justifies the expense, plus I just love those cremes =)
