Kiss Kiss is a creamy mango butter-based lipstick that hydrates lips and dresses them in medium coverage, satin effect colour. After use, lips look full, soft and absolutely alluring. Whether impeccable nude or a delicate pinky red, the two subtle autumnal shades Fall in Nude and Fall in Red are easily adaptable to any skin tone or occasion.
Fall in Nude is an impeccable nude shade. Fall in Red is a delicate pinky red which is also part of the Guerlain Autumn Collection.
Packaging – Starting my review by talking about the packaging- Guerlain did an excellent job in making the lipstick look luxurious, sleek black lacquer case with the perfect “click” and “KissKiss” imprint on the bullet. Lipstick tube is itself a work of art, elegance and beauty. The 3 cubes have elegant black curves for a classic look that matches every trend. This is one lipstick you’ll love pulling out of your handbag! More than a lipstick, It’s a symbol of femininity. Guerlain lipstick has a slight vanilla flavour to it.
Formula – Guerlain KissKiss Lipstick is enriched with hydrating mango butter which moisturises and plump lips.
Longevity – The formula didn’t dry out the lips, but it did settle into the lip creases slightly. I managed a total wear time of about 4 hours before noticing significant fading.
Fall in Red is a deep rose shade with satin+ shiny texture that works on every skin tones.
Fall in Nude is a pink nude shade. It’s a shade that not works for everyone. Both lipstick shades have amazing Kiss Kiss – nourishing formula that doesn’t dry out the lips. Staying power is bout 3-4 hours without any meals.
Take a look at the swatches
Guerlain introduces 5 Couleurs, an indispensable palette that features a harmony of five shades selected for a flawless result. One base shade smoothes out and illuminates your eyes, and two nude shades and two smoky shades give you a smoldering look. Each can be applied alone or layered to create a perfect harmony. The finishes range from matte to satin or metallic and are enriched with light pigments, which reflect light to make the eyes seem more open and brighter.
For Fall 2016, Guerlain has released 6 new stay in line eyeshadow palettes, with each comprised of 5 unique shades to help you create both natural and/or more dramatic looks.
Packaging – Packed in Guerlain’s signature black compact case with a snap closure with Guerlain symbol detailing. The shades are embossed with Guerlain pattern and Guerlain name imprinted on the darkest shade. Every palette also has a sponge-tipped applicator and a dual-ended brush.
All of the shades in this collection are below :
01 Rose Barbare (shades of eggplant)
02 Tonka Impériale (warm neutral shades)
03 Coque d’Or (bronze and pale gold shades)
04 L’Heure de Nuit (shades of black)
05 Après l’Ondée (shades of blue)
06 Bois des Indes (shades of taupe)
Each Guerlain 5 Couleurs Eye Palette features 5 shades – one is a very light eyeshadow color that can be used as a base/brow bone highlight, two basic nude shades that can be applied as an over all lid color and two smoky shades. The last smoky color with the name ‘Guerlain’ imprinted is the darkest in each palette and can be used for creating smokey eye look and also to darken/intensify the outer corners of the eye lid or to smudge your lower lash line.
All of the shades are wearable and suits every skin type. The shades I received are Rose Barebare & L’Heure de Nuit. Rose Barebare is my favorite palette. In the makeup look I created at the end of this post. I have used shades from Rose Barebare Palette. Totally, loving it.
L’Heure de Nuit – Without a primer, I tried it. I had to apply multiple layers to get the desired pigmentation. Color payoff is better if a primer is used prior to applying the shades. You can apply the shades both wet and dry.
I like shade ‘ Rose Barebare’ more. It was more pigmented than the other shade. In multiple swipes, I got the desired color intensity. Shades from both palettes were easy to blend and I noticed no fallouts.

This is one of the jet black liners in the same category that I’ve ever tried. it’s lasting power is excellent. Without cracks or fading, It stays on and it dries pretty quickly too.
-For a subtle look, create a thin line along the lash line.
-For a graphic look, reshape your eyes with a thicker and more dramatic line, adjusting it according to your wishes.
Now, here is a makeup look I created using the wonderful products from Guerlain. Please excuse my brow. Recent eye brow threading was a disaster. My brows are coming back to its real shape. Filling of the brows is not done perfectly. Time to use ABH brow pomade. hahah… 🙂
