Guerlain Crazy Bouquet KissKiss Roselip

Guerlain KissKiss Roselip ($37.00 for 0.09 oz.) is new for fall, and it is designed to be a tinted lip balm that is supposed to hydrate, comfort, and protect the skin with a “subt[le] tint.” It’s available in six shades, and I have three of the six. While Morning Rose is said to be colorless, there is some color, but it was certainly the sheerest of the three I tried. The other two had more noticeable color–translucent, semi-sheer coverage. The formula is comfortable to wear with a very light tackiness and is moderately hydrating. It had a perfume-y scent but no discernible taste.

Guerlain Crazy Bouquet KissKiss Roselip ($37.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “delicious red.” It’s a brightened, candy apple red with warm undertones and a natural sheen. Swatched, it appears much more muted, but I think that is due to how the formula softens against the heat of the lips while the consistency adheres more to the lips than my skin. It had semi-sheer color payoff with a noticeable layer of translucency where the natural lip came through. The color lasted for four hours, and it was moderately hydrating–less than the best lip balm but more than your typical lipstick. Givenchy Rouge Atelier (302) (P, $36.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). Too Faced Red Stiletto (P, $22.00) is brighter, glossier (90% similar). MAC Flaming Lips (LE, $20.00) is brighter (90% similar). MAC Cherry Glaze (LE, $20.00) is brighter, more pigmented (90% similar). MAC 5 Alarm (LE, $18.50) is warmer (90% similar). Estee Lauder Envious (P, $32.00) is brighter, more pigmented (85% similar). Revlon Provocateur (135) (P, $8.99) is brighter, more pigmented (85% similar). Urban Decay Sheer Slowburn (DC, $22.00) is brighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Guerlain Morning Rose KissKiss Roselip ($37.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “colorless balm.” It’s a light, pinky-peach with warm undertones and a soft sheen. It is quite sheer, but it doesn’t seem totally colorless to me; on, it adds warmth and “darkens” my natural lips a bit. It lasted for three hours before it seemed to be mostly gone. The formula felt moderately moisturizing when worn. MAC I'm In (LE, $20.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Koi Coral (P, $18.50) is more shimmery, darker, more pigmented (90% similar). Too Faced Just Kissed (P, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Soft Talkin' (LE, $20.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Glimmer (LE, $55.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). MAC Touche (LE, $20.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Nippon (P, $18.50) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Too Faced Peachykeen (P, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Universel (LE, $55.00) is less shimmery, less pigmented, cooler (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Rougir (LE, $55.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Aurora (LE, $55.00) is less shimmery, cooler (80% similar).

Guerlain Pink Me Up KissKiss Roselip ($37.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “very fresh pink.” It’s a soft, medium rosy pink with warm undertones and light shine. It had sheer color coverage–I think this one represented the idea of a subtle tint best of the three–that goes on evenly and smoothly without tugging on the lips. The consistency is lightweight, comfortable to wear, and moderately hydrating. It lasted for three and a half hours on me. Surratt Beauty Perfectionniste (P, $34.00) is warmer (90% similar). Chanel Roussy (426) (P, $37.00) is brighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Aurora (LE, $55.00) is less shimmery, less pigmented (85% similar). Urban Decay Sheer Streak (DC, $22.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC Love Beam (LE, $20.00) is brighter, more pigmented (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Universel (LE, $55.00) is less shimmery, less pigmented (85% similar). MAC Out for Passion (LE, $20.00) is warmer (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Rougir (LE, $55.00) is less shimmery, less pigmented (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Glimmer (LE, $55.00) is less shimmery, less pigmented (85% similar).

Wow, I can’t believe how sheer Crazy Bouquet looks in the swatch but much more pigmented on your lips. It looks nice on your lips, but I’m skipping these line. My lips are too pale, and for $ 37, I need more pigment than a tinted chapstick.

Although they do seem nice, wear time is way too short for that price point! Sorry, Guerlain, I’ll stick to the NYX Butter Balm, thank you very much!

Crazy Bouquet might have to come home with me!

I broke my foot over the weekend (UGHHH), and the limited mobility is just the excuse I need for a nice treat, right? Besides, something sheer and versatile I can throw in my purse will get a lot of use the next several weeks.

So happy that these got some decent reviews because I’ve really been considering them. Usually not a fan of sheerer formulas but Crazy Bouquet is very pretty!

Morning Rose is pretty. But, I really can barely see the others. I find the regular Kiss Kiss formula pretty hydrating. think I would rather spend the $ on those than these. But, I guess to each their own. Obviously, there is a market for HE tinted balms. Seems like a lot are coming out.

I can see grabbing one if you’re a big fan of the Guerlain formula/range/scent, but there are a lot of lip balms on the market for sure. I tend to prefer true lip balm for hydration, and then I’ll go for a less-hydrating but longer-wearing/more pigmented lipstick.

I picked up the Violet one on a whim and I’m actually quite pleased with it. I love the way it feels, and it isn’t as “heavy” as the Fresh Sugar balms are. Ultimately, they’re still much too expensive for a tinted balm but they are nice!

I’d say it’s lighter than my Fresh Plum, but is still noticably purple on my lips and buildable. But compared to these three, I think it is more sheer.

Not exactly on-topic, but I’m not understanding “subt[le] tint.” Was there a mistake in the ad copy?

Even more off-topic, in your last site layout there was a way to go into my profile, to Activities, and find links to comments I had made. I found this very useful to go back and see if anyone had responded to my comment or asked a question. I can’t seem to find a way to do that anymore. Am I being completely dense? (A distinct possibility!)

Guerlain’s description: “Lips are left soft, smooth, and subtly tinted.”

We are working on activity, but it’s basically a complete timesink of epic proportions so we are working on clearing out errors and a few other things on the list before we dive into it.

No pressure! I was actually assuming that the function is there but that I was being an idiot. Not a big deal — I’m sure you have a lot of other more important things on your plate!

I’m loving Pink Me Up! Paired with the deeper in colour Too Faced Perfect Lips Lip Pencil in Perfect Pink it makes for a nice daytime look. I just apply lip pencil round the edges and blend in, then apply the lip colour. I like definition to my cupids bow at least, hence the lip pencil. 🙂

I love me a high end lippie with pretty packaging, but I just can’t bring myself to purchase these when there are so many less expensive, highly pigmented, and more moisturizing tinted balms out there. Tarte Lipsurgence, Sephora Kiss Me Balm, BM Pop of Passion Lip Oil-Balm, and Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment all come to mind…. Do you have any less expensive favorites?

That’s pretty much true with almost anything on the market — you can always find something cheaper that is as good 🙂 These have such a different feel from something like Tarte’s (which are much thinner), though. Fresh’s go so fast as they melt, I actually find them one of the lesser-valued lip balms, lol, because I can run through one in a couple of weeks and feel like I hardly use it!
