Guerlain - KissKiss Gloss Review for Secret Beige, Rose Florida, Fraise a Croquer

I recently tried out three Guerlain KissKiss glosses ($26.00) in Secret Beige, Rose Florida, and Fraise a Croquer. KissKiss glosses are delicately scented with something akin to a raspberry-sweetness. It is light enough that I find I don’t notice it very much after I’ve applied it to my lips. I did find that these particular shades gave me moderate color pay off, as far as glosses go, with no stickiness or goopiness. They applied easily, precisely, and really didn’t require much effort before my lips looked delightfully shiny and glossy. What I really liked about Guerlain’s KissKiss glosses was that they are incredibly moisturizing; as a compulsive lip balm user, the hardest thing about getting into lipgloss and lipstick was knowing I wouldn’t be able to repeatedly apply lip balm throughout the day. Having a gloss that is moisturizing and longlasting is thus imperative for me.

Verdict? At this price point, I can say that personally, my budget nor my conscience, would permit indulgences such as these very often, but if a certain shade comes around, I may splurge.

Check out lip swatches and reviews of the individual shades…

Secret Beige is a golden beige shimmery gloss that tints lips to a neutral color, with whatever the natural lip color is, becoming only an undertone. Mine are a purply-pink-corpse color, so you can see that the gloss gives me a beige-pink lip.

Rose Florida is a glossy, medium pink with subtle pale pink shimmer that gives my lips the look of indulgent softness. I liked that the pink actually melted into my lips, leaving them a touch colored and not just glossy.

Fraise a Croquer is a lovely shade of strawberry-pink with gold shimmer. This particular shade was my favorite of the three, because the color was absolutely flattering to my skintone, with its pink and coral tones. The gold shimmer gave it just enough pop to make a great gloss-only lip.
