Guerlain recently revamped their beloved Kisskiss Shaping Cream Lip Colors. Now housed in a shiny lacquer black tube, the KissKiss Lipsticks ($42 CAD) provide long-lasting hydration with its mango butter and hyaluronic acid spheres formulation. Today I have a few shades swatched and reviewed for y'all, so to see some pictures, click.......
The KissKiss lipsticks come in shiny black tubes with a design that looks like three cubes stacked on top of each other. The inner tube and the top of the cap are shiny and gold and the Guerlain logos can be found on the outside of the lipstick. The overall feel of the packaging is super luxurious, as one might expect from a high-end brand like Guerlain. The only downside is that the packaging easily picks up fingerprints and thus loses it's luster very quickly unless you constantly wipe it down with some cloth.
The lipsticks have a semi-opaque formulation so it's very buildable. The mango butter and hyaluronic acid spheres in the formulation give the colors a very hydrating feel and the lipsticks have a satin-y finish. The wear varied between the three shades I swatched with Baby Rose wearing off after only three hours and Rouge Kiss staining the lips for most of the day.
358 Baby Rose:
This is a sheer warm baby pink loaded with golden shimmers. The formulation is surprisingly not at all gritty as one might expect.
344 Sexy Coral:
A vibrant reddish orange, this juicy shade is perfect for the summer time.
325 Rouge Kiss:
This is a very bold bright red with a luscious sheen.

What I love about this line is how incredibly plumped and hydrated they make the lips look. If you are someone who constantly struggles with lipsticks clinging to the fine lines on your lips, definitely check out these KissKiss Lipsticks!
