Product Review: Guerlain KissKiss Stick Gloss in Corail Des Mers

I have been meaning to post this since last Sunday but I was down with the flu (darn virus and still sick up to now) so I have a lot of catching up to do on my posts though that would have to wait because I'm experiencing vertigo every once in a while. Yeah, my world has been spinning literally. :P I have bought a few stuff so I have a lot of review coming up soon.

Anyway, I'm in a coral-pink kick lately and anything of that shade makes my heart skip a beat. Of course, I'm exaggerating on the heart skipping a beat part but yeah, that's how much I love the shade. I'm reviewing one of the products I got from The Big Outlet Sale/Lux Asia Sale last 15 April and that is the Guerlain KissKiss Stick Gloss in 902 Corail Des Mers.






What I like:
- Let me start again with the packaging. It is housed in a very luxurious and elegant looking metal (or tin?) tube. It looks divine!
- The scent isn't as strong as the KissKiss Baby Nourishing Lip Balm in Cherry Summer.
- Texture is glossy, somewhat like that of a tinted lip balm. It is definitely not waxy and it applies smoothly on the lips.s
- The shade, Corail des Mers, looks coral on the tube but on my lips, it turns to a very pretty coral-pink shade.
- Does not dry out my lips.
- Goes on sheer on the lips but intensity of the color is build-able in my opinion.
- I got this on sale for Php 500 instead of the usual mall price, which I am not interested to know.
- Lasts for about 2-3 hours without drinking or eating but leaves a nice sheer tint on the lips.


What I don't like:
- This shade is limited edition so I would have to keep myself from constantly using it so I won't easily run out of it.
- It's easy to run out of it. It takes 2-4 swipes just to get a nice pop of color on the lips (that is if you want it to show up a bit more pigmented)
- No SPF for SPF freaks.

Overall rating: 4.25/5

Will I buy again? When I get the chance to and if it is on sale.

    I hope you get back on your feet from the flu. Hay, our weather! (and our equally frustrating meteorologists--- what a tandem to make our heads ache nga naman!)

  9. Jade, me too. Not a huge fan of opaque/pigmented lipsticks. :)

    Debi, thank you. :P Yeah, that's why I'm making tipid since I might not find one like it again. :)

    Keesh, I only get updated through girltalk as there is a thread na "where's the makeup sale?". Weee! Shopping for you! :P

    Nika, not when the items are on sale. This one's just about the price, or even less than Revlon Colorburst lipstick for only 500 bucks. :P

    Michelle, me too! :P

    G, you gotta try it if you are a fan of sheer and glossy lippies. You'll like it if that's the case. Agree, this doesn't dry out my lips either. :P

    Hollie, true true! :P
