Review : Guerlain Kiss Kiss Strass Lipstick in Rouge Imperiale


Reviewing today the Guerlain Kiss Kiss Strass Lipstick in Rouge Imperial. Who could resist this beautiful color that not only look sumptuous but also imparts an irresistible shine on the lips and you may not need a gloss with it too.

So lets see how fabulous this lipstick looks.....




PACKAGING

Encased in a golden casing is this fabulous lipstick. I love the GOLD and it looks so luxurious. In fact with the flash it looks like a product that could be used by Egyptian Pharaohs, hiding some magical mystical color that makes them look beautiful aka lipstick in the modern world. Unfortunately its prone to finger prints but who cares if its Guerlain.



FORMULA

This formula is soft glossy and fully packed with glitter. It is moisturizing and keeps the lips supple even after 3-4 hrs of application. The golden glitter is a bit gritty and you can feel it on the lips when rubbed to each other. This dark and intense looking lipstick goes so sheer and beautiful and can be layered for a flattering finish. This is ultra glittery and shouts party party when applied for those bedazzling evenings. The effect is not very long lasting though so you would need to carry it for those extra touch ups.



COLOR

The color is a luscious bright ruby scarlet red with micro glitters and sparkling gold glitter. On the swatch, the formula looks almost like a liquid or a jelly. The sheen is superb but this lipstick is low on pigmentation and its meant to be that way. This lipstick suffices as a gloss and one may not need a balm, a lipstick and a gloss when you have a color like this. I had to swatch the lipstick almost 3 times to achieve this intensity.

APPLICATION

  • Lip brush would be good to create a sheer wash of color but I would not use it to spend any expensive bit of the lipstick on the brush.
  • It can be directly applied from the bullet and for hygienic reasons, not shared with others. This lipstick is not a part of my bridal vanity case and is purely meant for blogging purposes with a on and off usage on my mother if she has to attend any specific occasion.
  • Under a lip liner this color can look really intense and amazingly flattering. I used the Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in place lip liner and the color came out very vibrant and bedazzling and magical.
PRICE

INR 1750 Rs.

This is a fantastic lipstick to amplify an evening and looks absolutely magical and mesmerizing. I really loved this lipstick and I have nothing more to say about it.

Hope you liked this small review. Do let me know in the comments.

Till then,

Ciao
