Guerlain Voilette de Madame Gloss d’Enfer Maxi Shines ($30.00 for 0.20 fl. oz. each) includes three limited edition shades. This gloss formula is lightweight, shimmery, non-sticky, and wears an average of three to four hours. According to Guerlain, it comes in “varying degrees of coverage and pigment intensity.” All three shades were semi-sheer with slight settling into lip lines, and because they are on the sheerer side, they tended to look more alike applied than not. They have a thin, almost gel-like consistency that has some slip but doesn’t slide around. It has a medium shine, and the formula (and all three of these in particular) is nicely hydrating. The formula has a floral scent but no discernible taste and comes in a flat, clear tube with a slanted doe-foot applicator.

Madame Batifole (860) is described as an “electric sparkling fuchsia.” It’s a slightly cool-toned fuchsia with violet shimmer. In the tube, it has more of a berry coloring, but on lips, it’s pinker and against my skin tone, almost looks warm sometimes. The coverage is mostly even with very, very slight settling into (some) lip lines–completely unnoticeable from a normal viewing distance. It lasted three and a half hours on me. Revlon Sugar Violet is lighter. Revlon Berry Allure is similar. MAC Dress Kimono is cooler-toned. L’Oreal Dazzle Me is more fuchsia. Chanel Pink Pulsion is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches.

Madame Flirte (861) is described as a “gourmand sparkling red.” It’s a muted, pink-red with lightly warm undertones and pink and gold shimmer. Applied, it seemed to look even pinker (which can be heavily influenced by your natural lip color). It had semi-sheer color coverage, and it did have some light settling into lip lines (noticeable in the close-up but less so from afar). It is more similar than not compared to Madame Batifole. It lasted three and a half hours on me. Revlon Berry Allure is similar, less shimmery. Burberry Hibiscus is less shimmery. Bobbi Brown Electric Violet is lighter, sheerer. See comparison swatches.

Madame Fascine (863) is described as a “sparkling deep purple.” In the tube, it looks like a smoldering, purpled burgundy with violet, fuchsia, and copper shimmer; swatched, it’s a brownish-plum with multi-colored shimmer. Applied, it’s similar to how it appears swatched–a brownish-plum, some shimmer, glossy shine. This seemed even glossier than other shades in the range. It lasted four hours when I tried it. MAC Spice is more opaque, creamier. MAC Get Rich Quick is more sparkly. MAC Looks Like Sin is less shimmery. Bobbi Brown Aubergine is purpler. See comparison swatches.

Even though these shades really do not differ that much from each other and they are more gloss than pigment, I still think you rock every single one of them… they light your face up. I love these gloss shades which is unusual for me. I tend to gravitate to the more opaque.

For $30 they should have way more pigment than this. I will pass! BTW Christine, will you be reviewing Burberry’s new summer collection? It seems odd that they just released a summer collection when everyone else is on to Fall.

These look so beautiful in the tube, so it’s disappointing to see how sheer they wear on! I feel like one or two of them should have been more opaque.

Oh, no! I wanted all three shades, but these are way too sheer for my liking. 🙁 I’ll have to make do with two Rouge Gs from this collection and move on.

OMG, I am shocked at the lack of pigmentation! I was looking forward to Flirt or Reve lip shine to augment the translucence of the lipstick.

Controversy Rouge Allure extrait de gloss from the Chanel Rouge Allure Moire collection looks very similar in color and is more opaque from the swatches I have seen 🙂 .

So disappointed with the lack of pigmentation, oh well. I will be passing on these. For me such sheer lipgloss is not worth the price tag.

I was looking forward to Madame Fascine because I expected this to be similar to the other Gloss d’Enfer shades that came out this summer, that is very pigmented, so I’m pretty disappointed.

I guess “Maxi Shine” should have been my hint?

I’m totally in love with your earrings that you’re wearing in this pictures. Can you let me know where you got them from or the brand name? Thanks so much!
