Guerlain "Kiss Kiss" Lip Swatches

I recently had the privilege of trying some samples of Guerlain KissKiss lip products...normally, the Guerlain counter isn't my first pit stop when I go beauty shopping but I have to say that I really enjoyed the texture and colors of the KissKiss products - and I love the name!

Here are four of the products I tried:

KissKiss Stick Gloss 940 Vanilla Beige - This actually felt like more of a lipstick than a gloss so I would dub it a "cream" gloss which comes in a tube. The color pay off was quite good and it was super moisturizing.

KissKiss Maxi Shine Lipstick 621 Cherry Shine - You can't tell from the photo, but in real life, Cherry Shine looks like the same exact color as the ruby red slippers in the Wizard of Oz. It is a really beautiful color that would look great on all skin tones.

Guerlain KissKiss Gloss 865 Rose Tentation - A pretty pink gloss but with pigmented lips, I think this was too light for me. The texture was great though.

Guerlain KissKiss Lipstick in 523 Exces de Rouge - And finally, this product was without a doubt, the most fire engine red lip color I have ever worn! Sephora describes it as a "berry red" but on me, it was definitely a fire engine red. This product would take some serious confidence - it was fun to wear at home but I don't know if I could pull it off outside the confines of my home! The texture was superb though and I can't wait to try the other colors.


  1. I love posts like these! Please do more lip swatches!It is so helpful wen u see a swatch actually on the lip!:)Thanks

  2. ooh i have a couple of guerlain lippies too! they are so nice and moisturizing, i dunno why theyre niot more popular!

  3. Hi Anshu - Thanks for the encouragement, I will definitely step up the lip swatches!

    Hi BabyJanny - You're right. For some reason, Guerlain (and even Givenchy) are brands that aren't as popular as their other French counterparts like Lancome or Dior. I'm not sure why either. Most of time when I go into a dept store, Guerlain is always wayyy in the back and I'm way too lazy to walk all the way over there!

  4. I just got Vanilla Beige, and I'm in love with the texture of this lipstick and it's a perfect everyday light lippie!
    Really want to try Cherry Shine now because I love how pretty the color is on you.
