Guerlain Kiss To Say (521) KissKiss Shine Bloom Lipstick BalmGuerlain Kiss To Say (521) KissKiss Shine Bloom Lipstick Balm ($39.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddened plum with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had medium pigmentation in a single layer, though the color didn't apply as evenly and seemed more prone to settling into my lip lines compared to most shades in the range.
The consistency felt balm-like--thin, emollient but not too slippery--and was comfortable to apply. It lasted for four hours and felt lightly hydrating over time.
