Guerlain Rouge Broderie Kiss Kiss Strass Lipstick

Guerlain Kiss Kiss Strass:  Rouge Broderie

Guerlain Rouge Broderie (#321) Kiss Kiss Strass Lip Color ($31.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a nearly opaque raspberry red with fuchsia and red shimmer. It has a very glittery, shimmery look with a particularly glossy finish. It’s a lipstick that doesn’t need a gloss to give it that wet look (though you could still certainly layer if you wanted to). Rouge Broderie may be the most standout shade of the ten shades released in the Kiss Kiss Strass formula, just because it’s vibrant and bold without being overwhelming.

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. The pricing is typical to Guerlain lip products, which doesn’t make them the most affordable brand if you’re on the hunt for a lipstick! However, Guerlain does exceptional lip color, both from the shades to the quality and feel of their formulas.
