Guerlain KissKiss Gloss is ready to hit the rack this spring. The Guerlain KissKiss lovers need to be prepared to have four shades of pink this season. Flush Pink, Cherry Pink, Frosted Rose, and Rose in Bloom are this season's four colors from Guerlain KissKiss. Each color has its own uniqueness, but overall they have a nice shade and very creamy on women's soft lips. It lasts longer than most lip-gloss and has special scent which is unfortunately does not stay long on our lips.
Guerlain KissKiss Gloss Brings Beauty to Lips
The texture and color of this lip-gloss bring rave Guerlain KissKiss Gloss review. The four shades of pink colors also give each different vibes. The Rose in Bloom, for example, has light color yet still gives visible tea color beauty. Cherry Pink, the darkest of the four, has the same luscious color as cherry. Frosted Rose will easily give opalescent color above the lipstick we wear. Flush Pink makes women's face looks more alive and lights up, which is gorgeous.
The brush applicator that this gloss has easily applies the color to our lips softly and precisely. While some other lip-gloss applicators make the applying work as a mess, the applicator of this lip-gloss simply helps out women's job. Even the first time lip-gloss wearer can easily apply Guerlain KissKiss Gloss without making it a wreck.
I was very lucky to win one of these Guerlain lip glosses in a competition recently, I say lucky because it transpires this range is very pricey (it is not one I would ever dream of buying make up from due to the cost) but winning it gave me a chance to try it and try and fathom if it is indeed of some superior quality which vindicates the £20 standard price tag.
Overall I think this one is a mixed bag and although the colour and the quality are great I believe there are other glosses on the market (L'ancome Juicy Tubes come to mind immediately) which rival this product on those aspects but at a much more pocket friendly price.
I do not wear a lot of make up and for that reason I tend to go through a lot of lip gloss as I much prefer it to lipstick, I always have at least one gloss in every bag for work and home so I can reapply on the go (and preferably without a mirror!).
The gloss which I won is in a pretty shade called Cherry Pink which is a little darker than a baby pink (which puzzles me as to my mind a cherry is generally more of a red/cerise colour than a baby pink?) and because the bottle is see through you get a very good indication of the shade from the outside. The lid is squared off and the bottle is a square shape too which makes it easy to identify from other glosses when fishing in your bag!
The wand is fairly flat and I have to say very good at ensuring accuracy of application, in terms of the gloss quality I was pretty pleased too, it does not bleed much at all and the hint of colour is just enough to be distinct without being overwhelming, I liked the subtlety of it. It is quite a sticky, thick gloss but feels very nice on your lips and as long as you can resist the urge to lick it during the first few minutes it sets very well and does not budge.
Don't get me wrong, this is a lovely item and one I will enjoy using until it runs out - but at the price tag of around £20 I just could not justify the spend.
My sister had the Guerlain KissKiss Gloss first - and I tried it and loved it and so I went out and bought my own. The Guerlain KissKiss Gloss comes in a variety of shades, namely poppy star, brown sugar and rose sunset, pink pearl, rose tentation, fraise a croquer, fique plasir, and peaches charnel. They range through from a bright red through to a orangey peach colour - and so there is a good selection to choose from. I opted for the rose tentation which is a deep mauve - pink and best suits my colouring. The Guerlain KissKiss Gloss doesn't come particularly cheap, but the Guerlain range in general is pretty expensive and so that's not really any big surprise! The Guerlain KissKiss Gloss cost me £21.00 from the House of Fraser make-up department, but I am generally willing to spend a little more on good quality make-up.
The Guerlain KissKiss Gloss comes in a nice glass tube with a nice gold cap. The tube is transparent and so it's possible to see the actual shade of the gloss, as well as how much more you have left in the tube once you've been using it for a while. It does look quite a professional and high-end product - and so you won't be embarrassed to get this out in public. Like many lip glosses, the applicator is attached to the underside of the lid and so you carry that compact with the tube and so application is not problematic. The applicator is really nice because it is a high quality brush applicator made up of short and soft bristles which make application easy and neat. There is no need to clean the applicator since it just sits in the gloss between uses.
The gloss is a gorgeous rich colour - and the colour you get on your lips is a true reflection of the colour that ends up on your lips. After applying the Guerlain KissKiss Gloss, it felt really light on my lips and didn't actually feel heavily covered like it can sometimes with you apply lip gloss. The gloss is initially a bit sticky, but once it has a few minutes to dry, it is no longer wet and sticky, and yet is still looks glossy and shiny on my lips. My lips just feel wonderfully moisturised, and so while I principally got this gloss because I liked the look, in actually fact the moisturising factor is one of the things I love the most about it. The other thing that I really love and think this is superior to most other products of this type, is the fact that the stay-ability is brilliant. One application will last about 8 hours - and then it will gradually fade and require touching up, but 8 hours for a lip gloss is just fantastic. A
Overall, I think the Guerlain KissKiss Gloss is just a premium product and if you want quality then THIS IS IT!
Guerlain for me as a 20 something is an expensive, "high end" and somewhat old fashioned brand. I am much more of a MAC kind of girl. Regardless, I was encouraged to try this out by the lady who did my makeup for my wedding.
The cost is around £20 which, for a lipgloss is very expensive in my opinion (given that lipglosses don't stay on like lipsticks do). The need to re-apply makes them run out much more quickly, but that is true of any brand, not just Guerlain.
The one thing going good for this lipgloss is it doesn't bleed as much around the lips as others I have tried. The rest though for me is negative comments. It is very sticky, although smooth in consistency, it isn't like Vaseline-sticky, it's like "go out on a windy day and your hair will stick to your lips" sticky. I can't bear lip glosses like this, there are a few out there (AVON for example) which aren't as sticky as normal but this isn't one of them.
Despite me thinking the brand is old fashioned, the packaging is nice and looks up to date - the body of the gloss is see through plastic so you can see the colour and a nice metallic wand-end.
Overall I don't rate the product highly or any better than a low-end cheap 99p lipgloss other than the bright colours bleed slightly less than a cheaper brand would. I wouldn't buy it again as it is nothing special and very expensive.
Guerlain is a very well known name in my profession and I am so pleased that I get many free samples of their product dew to my wonderful friend and fellow beautician from Paris. Guerlain is a quality French range of beauty products in both makeup and skin care.
Kiss kiss is a fabulous range of high shine lip glosses. There are no dried out cracked and faded shades when it comes to this range. When I apply kiss kiss to my lips it looks like a high gloss nail varnish, it catches the light and in turn catches the eye. My lips look dewy and wet. The shine is incredible like that of a highly polished car. Unlike most shiny lip glosses this isn't sticky like a candy apple even though it may resemble one. There are a variety of shades available from the more creamy caramel based luscious colours, stand out reds to softer pinks, they all have two things in common, fabulous shine and deep high quality colour.
Kiss kiss can vary in price depending on where you buy it but £21 is the average price. Each bottle of kiss kiss comes in it's stylish packaging just like it is pictured above. The shade will be visible through the bottle and it is a good representation of how it will look on your lips. The all important wand is attached to the lid of the bottle and is a comfortable, generous sized, padded wand head that glides over my lips like a pillow. The wand stick is long, thin, and strong, and doesn't warp if you apply some pressure.
Each 6ml Serving of kiss kiss will last you quite some time. The fact that this doesn't need constant reapplying means that you get more use out of each application. It is hard however to get out of the habit of constantly reapplying every time you go to the lady's or check yourself in a mirror or your compact.
There are dramatic shades and more subtle natural tones available from the kiss kiss range but which ever one you choose I don't think you will be disappointed. A lot of lady's do find that their lipsticks and lip glosses can bleed into those fine lines around their lips especially their upper lip. Going on the feed back from any of my more mature clients this doesn't happen with kiss kiss. Because of it's composition it sits exactly where you apply it and doesn't travel at all. When used on the napkin test a very fine out line will be left behind so it may not pass the color test either.
If you have luscious pillow lips, kiss kiss will look amazing on them.
If you have balanced lips the high gloss will emphasise them.
And if you thin lips I would recommend a more subtle shade as a dark shade will only make your lips look even thinner.
I will leave you with a simple tip :
No matter how large, full or thin your lips are always apply one coat of your lipgloss then apply one extra coat to your bottom lip for that full, heavy lipped, irresistibly kissable look.
Stay beautiful xxx
I have used a few Guerlain products over the years and almost always found them to be of good quality. I like to try as many different beauty products as I can and makeup if probably where I invest most of money. I actually don't often use lip gloss because I find cheap brands are sticky and irritate me when I am wearing it. I thought I would test out a more expensive brand and see if the results were any better as I do enjoy adding lip colour to an ensemble.
The gloss comes in a very attractive looking clear tube with a silver metal lid and brush applicator. I think the overall look of the gloss is very nice and expensive looking. The gloss is only 5ml so it is a nice size to slip into your handbag or to travel with. In terms of packaging I was very impressed, and the fact that it isn't over designed gave me hope that the time had been spent perfecting an excellent product.
I chose Peche Charnel as my shade because I wanted something relatively nude in colour with a little added interest. This shade is perfect because it is a peachy colour which complements my pale skin and has a natural look to it that isn't too overpowering. There are 8 shades in the collection though so there should be one for everyone. I think the only thing they are missing is a clear gloss and a more nude shade than the one I picked. If you are looking for a pop of colour though these should be perfect for you.
The brush applicator makes the process of applying the gloss very smooth and easy to perfect. I prefer this to a sponge applicator as I think they can often becomes clogged with gloss and aren't as sensitive to your lips as a brush applicator can be. It also makes it easier to control the amount of gloss you are applying which is great for me as I hate overloaded and sticky lips. The gloss goes on smoothly and with little fuss. The colour looks very nice when on, I think the orangey tone in the peach lip gloss brings out the blue colour of my eyes and complements my skin tone very well. Although I have pale skin I can imagine it looking good with a tan too or naturally darker skin tones. I would probably prefer a more nude colour as I like to use lip tints and apply a gloss or salve over the top. With the colour of this gloss, and probably most of the others in the collection you couldn't do this without altering the colour of the tint somewhat which isn't great if you are going for red or purple. That said, as a stand alone product it is very nice.
The texture of the gloss is smooth, although still a little sticky for me. It gives your lips a glossy sheen which looks very nice. It has glittery particles in the gloss which give an added shine to your lips, reducing the appearance of thin lips also. I do find that it absorbs fully after 30 minutes or so you would have to apply constantly for a continuously glossy look throughout the day. I tend to use it as a little boost to my makeup and might apply it a couple of times during the night. I find if I apply it to regularly it makes my lips feel claustrophobic almost - I just hate that sticky feeling to get from a gloss and although it is reduced in this product it doesn't go away completely.
This gloss retails between £20-£25 depending on where you purchase it. There are considerably cheaper glosses on the market. But cheaper can often mean far poorer quality and design. I think in terms of the look and design of this product that is true, this one certainly does satisfy in appearance. However, I don't find the gloss to be significantly better than cheaper glosses on the market. This is massively disappointing for me and means I could not see myself repurchasing it. For those of you who do like to wear lip glosses regularly though this is probably one of the better ones on the market and maybe a good investment for you.
So, overall? Not for me.
Guerlain is one of those high-end beauty brands that I like to test and hardly end up buying because they are so expensive. So I was very happy when I received the Guerlain KissKiss lip gloss as one of my birthday presents. I love wearing lip sticks/glosses, not just for aesthetic reasons but also because they keep my lips moisturised. Especially during winter, my lips tend to crack and bleed so I have to always make sure that I've got lip balms or gloss on to protect them.
The lip gloss tube has a simple yet very pleasing design. The body of the tube is transparent and you can see different shades depending on the colour of the lip gloss itself. The cap is white gold and the overall design has a classy look to it. It's very easy to apply the lip gloss. The application stick has a brush tip to cover all those hard-to-reach edges of the lips. From my experience, I have no problems using the application stick. The cap itself is easy to open and as long as you make sure that the application stick doesn't smudge the edges.
The shade I was given is 808 Ambre Precious, which is a light pink blossom colour. I personally think it is a great shade for me. I usually go for darker pink but I tend to use a lip stick underneath, which is slight darker shade of pink, and therefore the two colours blend wonderfully to give a natural-looking pink shade. Looking at various website, I found that there are variety of shades available for different tastes.
As for the quality of the lip gloss itself, it is very satisfactory. However, like any other lip glosses, the consistency is quite thick and can be a bit sticky if you put too much on your lips. On the side note, since I have medium/long hair, my hair tend to get stuck to my lips during windy days. So I tend to use this lip gloss on the days I can stay indoors and don't have to walk long distances. The strength and duration of the lip gloss is pretty good as well, the shade stays on my lips for about 3 hours even if I drink water occasionally during that period. However, despite the product's slogan of 'long-lasting', it does need to be reapplied after 4-5 hours.
Since I was given this product as a present, I have no complaints about the price in my case. This product is retailed for £20.00 on average; and you maybe able to get it cheaper online or if they're on offer. However, I would have to think more than twice whether or not I would buy this product again. In my opinion, it is a very good quality lip gloss and does the job brilliantly. However, I also know that there are other lip glosses available, in similar shades, and they will costs less than half the price of Guerlain KissKiss gloss. Nevertheless, this is a product I would love to receive as a present.
Thank you for reading. :) x
I think perhaps my family were making hints this Christmas because I got lots of lovely beauty products in my stocking. This Guerlain KissKiss Gloss was just one of them, I got number 864 Rose colour, which is (as you would imagine) a light pink, rose colour. I think this is a nice natural looking colour, and seems to suit my complexion, which is fair. It also doesn't look like I've got a really dark colour on, which I dislike.
The packaging is pretty standard for a lipgloss, a square tube with a gold lid, which is embossed with the Guerlain logo. The applicator, inside the head has a flat end, which makes putting the lipgloss on very easy and accurate.
In terms of applying the gloss, it's a nice smooth consistency, that isn't sticky, so putting it on is very straightforward. I found the colour to have a nice pearly sheen, rather than a massive high gloss impact. However, I have found that some high gloss lipglosses tend to make you look like you have been dribbling, so tend to avoid them. The colour didn't bleed and it stayed on my lips without reapplying for a good couple of hours, except when I had a drink, in which case I needed to reapply. I didn't notice a fragrance with this product and it didn't irritate my sensitive skin.
Now I got this as gift, so it wasn't until I came on here to write this review that I noticed how expensive it was. You'll pay between £18 and £21 depending on where you buy it from. The cheapest prices seem to be online, so I would recommend trying them in your local department store and then searching for the colour you like online.
All in all a gorgeous luxury lipgloss, that is well worth the spend....go on treat yourself!
I'm an absolute sucker for all lotions, potions, perfumes and make-up, and as such have a absolutely vast amount of all of the above. My husband thinks I'm a bit crazy, but hey he's not a girl!
I think that I've got maybe 50 or so lipglosses alone.......... This is a truly vast number, but I do wear lip gloss every day, so they do get used, albeit slowly as I'm always buying new ones!
So on to the Guerlain KissKiss lipgloss. I loved the name initially, it reminded me of the Shirley Bassey James Bond song Mr Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. I know that this probably isn't the way most people end up buying a new lip gloss, but that's how I ended up buying this one!
I chose Moka shake 850, which is a lovely deep brownish gloss, this looks lovely on - quite natural, but with enough colour to stand out. It was £21.00 from John Lewis.
The lip gloss comes in a substantial, classy looking square tube, the tube itself is clear so that you can see the colour of the lip gloss. The gold square lid has the Guerlain logo engraved on it.
I find that I can wear this lipgloss with anything, and for any occasion. It feels really moisturising and sodt when it is on my lips, it has a lovely texture - I don't find this to be a 'sticky' lipgloss at all, and it lasts and stays on my lips for ages. It is quite a shiny lipgloss, but a pearly shine rather than a high gloss shine.
The lip gloss has a flat, soft, smooth lip brush for easy and accurate application, even without a mirror to guide you.
All in all I find this to be a really good quality lip gloss, yes it is expensive, but it is definately worth it. I will definately buy it again.
I have a so much make which I have collected up over time, I love trying out different products, one item which I seem to have quite a lot of is lip sticks and lip glosses. One item which helps to make up my collection is Guerlain Kiss Kiss Gloss. I have had this product a little while now, its one I tend to use on a night out rather than for everyday use, its probably a bit more expensive than what I would normally go for but it caught my attention when out shopping one day so I decided to give it a go.
The Guerlain Kiss Kiss Gloss comes in the traditional lip gloss tube, the tube is a square shape and mainly clear allowing you to see the colour of the lip gloss inside. At the very top of the tube just beneath the lid is a small silver border. The lid is also square to match the shape of the tube and this too is shiny silver, at the bottom of the lid is the make of the lip gloss "Guerlain" engraved within the lid itself. The packaging is quite plain and simple but I do like this about it as it looks quite classy and also it is the product inside that counts. The lid simply unscrews from the main tube to reveal the application brush, the handle part of the brush is quite long which means that you can get right down to the bottom of the tube. Most of my lip glosses have the traditional foam/ spongy applicator, however the applicator Guerlain Kiss Kiss Gloss has a brush style applicator, this is quite small and short, personally I think this is just the right size as it means you can apply the lip gloss neatly and evenly, a large brush style applicator may mean that the lip gloss goes everywhere when applying it.
The Lip Gloss
Personally I quite like wearing lip gloss however some can be quite sticky to wear and often end up wearing off quite quickly, I was hoping that as Guerlain Kiss Kiss Gloss would be a better quality compared to some I have This lip gloss is described as being pigment enriched and extremely shiny but without that stickiness. It is also supposed to be providing intense moisture whilst at the same time giving your lips a smooth appearance, again another important factor for me, if your lips are a bit on the dry side there's nothing worse than a lip gloss that either makes this worse or highlights the dry patches on your lips, for me it is important that my lip gloss does not dry out the skin on my lips and that it does not highlight it when my lips are a bit on the dry side, so in theory the Guerlain Kiss Kiss Gloss sounded perfect for me.
The first time I applied my Kiss Kiss lip gloss I particularly liked the brush style applicator, the short bristles allowed me to apply the gloss neatly and evenly, I had wondered how I would get on with the brush but I actually think I prefer it to the sponge applicator and the brush allows you to get right to the edges without going over onto your the skin of your face, found with this style applicator I got a really neat line. After I had applied the gloss I first noticed how light it felt on my lips and there was no stickiness at all, whilst I could obviously feel that I had something on my lips there was not that horrible gooey feeling which makes you feel like you have to peel your lips apart just to speak or eat. After wearing the lip gloss for a little while I was also pleased to discover that it was not gradually drying out the skin on my lips, they actually felt quite nourished and moisturised as promised, when I first tried this product my lips were not dry at all so there was no fear of the gloss becoming patchy and showing any dry skin, however I have since worn the Guerlain Kiss Kiss lip gloss when I have been suffering a bit with dry lips and was pleased to see that the same smooth appearance remained, I have even tried applying the gloss over lip balm for added moisturiser, you probably do not actually need to do this as the gloss is quite moisturising, however it still looked just as good with the lip balm base and lasted just as well. I was generally pleased with the lip gloss and how it made my lips look, I was also impressed with how well it lasted. I have found that lip glosses really do not last that long and are not always the best option for a night out when you do not really want to have to keep reapplying. However the first time I tried my Guerlain Kiss Kiss Gloss I was please to discover that it actually lasted for quite some time even after having a drink, I wouldn't say it lasted as long as lip stick, I am yet to find a lip gloss that does but this is definitely a close second. When I have worn this product I rarely have had to reapply, it doesn't last forever but is so much better than other lip glosses I have tried.
Guerlain Kiss Kiss Gloss comes in a large range of colours to choose from, there really is something for everyone, including
There are a lot more shades than this, I think there are around 20 in totally, some of which have a slight sparkle to them so there really is something to suit most occasions. I have the Rose Florida shade which is a pink, it is not what I would call a bright pink, yet on the other hand it is not too pale, I find that this shade goes with pretty much any other make up I am wearing, it has a lovely glossy sheen to it which remains the whole time I am wearing it. Some of the colours in the range are a bit bright for me especially some of the reds, however there are plenty of others which I would like to try at some point.
Price & Availability
I purchased my Guerlain Kiss Kiss Gloss from Debenhams and it cost me about £21.00, personally I think this is rather expensive for a lip gloss and I wouldn't normally spend this much on one, however I had heard a lot of good reviews about this product so decided to give it a go. Whilst I would say that the quality of the product is excellent, which I would expect with such a large price tag, I'm not sure any lip gloss is worth over £20.00. However as this was quite expensive I am trying to make it last as long as possible, I do not wear this every day for work and tend to save it for when I am going out, this is making it very long lasting, also the fact that it does not need to keep being reapplied also adds to the amount of time a tube lasts. I have since had a look online to see if this product is sold cheaper anywhere else, I have found it being sold for just under £20.00 on a few websites but I really cannot find it a massive amount cheaper at all, this seems to be the average price for it.
Overall I would recommend Guerlain Kiss Kiss Gloss, it is of a very high quality, it gives your lips a lovely shiny glossy finish without the nasty sticky after feeling, another bonus for me was that it didn't have any taste to it, there was a slight fragrance however this was quite nice, there's nothing worse than a lip gloss that leaves a nasty taste in your mouth and this certainly wasn't the case with this product. I loved the way it lasted for such a long time without having to reapply which allowed me to wear it on a night out. The large range of colours means that there's something for everyone no matter what your preference. For me the only down side is the price, it is a bit expensive for a lip gloss, however as I keep mine for special occasions it is proving to be long lasting. This is one I would recommend for the high quality not the price.
I paid £20 for my 6ml bottle of Guerlain Kiss Kiss lip gloss and although it is on the pricey side that is the only thing I can fault this lip gloss on.
The shade of lip gloss I own is the 865 Rose Tentation which is a relatively light pink colour that in my opinion is mostly suited for a day time look for someone who like myself has a pale to medium complexion.
The lip gloss itself comes in a glass bottle with a silver lid which the wand is attached to with the word Guerlain written on it. The lid unscrews to reveal the wand inside with a small brush applicator at the end to apply the lip gloss.
I find I do much prefer the brush applicator to a sponge one which a lot of other brands use. I find that whilst using the brush it is much easier to apply exactly how much gloss I would like in a much more accurate way.
The gloss itself has a very shiny finish which I like (If I didn't want shine I would wear a lip stick not a lip gloss). The texture of the gloss is good and not too sticky or heavy so long as you don't try and clog the lips up with too much of the gloss.
I find the gloss doesn't last a very long time maybe a couple of hours max but I find that problem with most lip glosses and it isn't difficult to re-apply and a little does go a long way.
I bought Guerlain Kiss Kiss Gloss after a friend recommended it to me. I bought it in House of Fraser for £20 for 6ml. I prefer lighter shades and so I bought the Pink Pearl shade, which I found adds a nice subtle hint of colour to my lips.
The gloss is creamy and goes on easily, I prefer to use the gloss on its own although it can be layered over your lipstick. I also like the brush applicator as it means the gloss goes on smoothly without smudging.
The gloss itself lasts a long time and feels quite moisturising. My friend is not a fan of the smell but I quite like it, though I think that you get used to it over time.
The gloss gives your lip a nice shimmer without being over the top and is available in a wide range of shades.
I think that some glosses tend to be quite sticky but I think that the Guerlain gloss is quite smooth and doesn't feel heavy.
The gloss is quite pricey but I think that it is worth it.
WHAT IS IT?
A lip gloss from Guerlain with a subtle hint of colour.
IS IT ANY GOOD?
The Cherry Fizz shade that I own is nice, giving me a shimmer of colour and deep glossy shine. This is a subtle cherry red colour that is not overpowering, more of a deep pink once applied it is a shade that would suit most women.
The gloss effect is dramatic at first but this dies off very quickly and unfortunately after less than an hour it has lost most of its shine, quicker than this if you eat anything or drink hot drinks. It has quite a greasy feel when first applied and is one of those glosses that attracts your hair to stick to it so if you have long hair like me you might want to either tie it up or think twice about whether this gloss is for you. The applicator is a basic sponge wand which is easy to use and not only gives good coverage but the tapering of the applicator makes it simple to apply the gloss in a natural lip shape as nothing looks worse than sloppy lip gloss.
There are a few different shades in the range but even though I do like this gloss I won't be purchasing another one. The KissKiss gloss costs £20 and I just don't think its worth the money because the glossy effect doesn't last long enough for my needs, and although I like the colour it's more sheer than I thought it would be judging by how the shade appears in the tube.
Guerlain is a French fashion house offering skincare and make up products.
KissKiss is a range of lipglosses from Guerlain. Each gloss is designed to offer extreme shine to your lips. Guerlain claim this gloss doesn't leave your lips feeling sticky and will simply leave them looking kissable and coloured.
Depending on where you purchase the gloss, there are over 10 shades to choose from. Most of the shades are noted in French. The shade choice is varied with subtle, creamy shades including Peche Caramel, pink shades including Rose Temptation, red shades including Rose Sunset and a few purple shades including Figue Plaisir.
The gloss is presented in a rectangular tube which is clear allowing the gloss to shine through. The wand is attatched within a white gold lid with the Guerlain logo on it. The brush has been specifically designed to allow for easy application. It is a flat, sponge brush for precise application.
The tube holds 6ml. Regardless of where you purchase KissKiss, you will pay around £20.00. Current stockists include Harrods, www.escentual.com and Amazon. You may come across some of the rarer or discontinued shades.
I own lots of lipglosses from brands as cheap as Collection 2000 to high priced brands as expensive as Chanel! I received my Guerlain Gloss as a gift last Christmas. I have shade 849 Frizzy Mango. I find the shade choice to be quite extensive and there is a shade to suit most skin tones. I prefer a subtle shade for my lips as I prefer to emphasise my eyes more.
The packaging is of a high quality being pretty and well made. 6ml doesn't seem like much but this gloss lasts for ages! Within the tube, Frizzy Mango is a pink/orange sort of shade and appears quite shimmery. The gloss itself is a decent consistency. It isn't too thick that it appears gloopy nor is it too thin that it doesn't make an impact.
The wand is a decent length and the soft brush picks up sufficient gloss to give my lips a coating of colour. The gloss spreads evenly and smoothly across my lips and feels quite moisturising which is an added benefit as my lips are prone to dryness. Frizzy Mango is the ideal shade for my lips and I would say it suits paler skintones as it isn't too vibrant. It gives my lips a fresh, bright appearance and feels light on my lips. The actual shade settles with a peachy colouring with hints of pink. It is very pretty and understated.
Frizzy Mango offers an element of shimmer but it isn't as intense when compared to the more vibrant shades available. This is more of a day time, shopping or work shade as it isn't strong enough for a night on the town in my opinion. I would say the gloss is more shiny that it is shimmery. The shine is quite strong and doesn't look cheap or tacky. When I wear this, my fiance comments how nice and shiny my lips look when the sun or other light catches them. It is quite natural and I like it!
I wouldn't say the lipgloss is completely sticky free! My lips don't feel sticky if I rub them together though if my hair blew across them, it does stick slightly. Frizzy Mango lasts fairly well on my lips despite a small amount rubbing off onto a glass if I have a drink. It lasts longer than cheaper glosses but does need a few top ups during the day. It wears off naturally and doesn't settle into the lines on my lips. My lips never dry out when wearing this gloss.
I do like this range of lipglosses as they of a decent quality. I wouldn't say they are worth £20.00 but you are really paying for the packaging and the brand name. The stronger shades would be ideal for those who like to emphasise their lips and make them stand out as they are vibrant and offer a gorgeous shimmer but for me, I prefer the subtlety of Frizzy Mango. The gloss lasts extremely well and with regular use I still have plenty left.
All in all, a decent lipgloss.

Everytime I wear my #800 Crystal Pearl Kiss Kiss gloss, I get people staring at my lips, man or woman! The colours are kissable and alluring, but I find this one is an iridescent pearl colour and goes quite well over my main lip stain colour to give it an alluring sheen.
The design of the tube is perfectly shaped, square yet a bevelled circular lid so its quite easy to find in your make up bag when you are rummaging through.
The gloss has a convenient small brush instead of a sponge type affair which other companies use. I find the brush gives much better and accurate coverage.
This Kiss Kiss is quite a sparkly affair but the product does stay on for quite a while and does not feel sticky! Hurrah! It does have quite a strong perfumed scent but I feel that adds to the luxury brand image that Guerlain has.
You should get this gloss if you like luxury cosmetics, thick NON sticky formula (I think we all like the idea of this) and a lip gloss that moisturises the lips instead of making them worse and sparkly glosses.
