GUERLAIN Kiss Kiss Essence de Gloss #460 Ambre Review and Swatch
June 10, 2011 1 Comment
Last September, I posted a brief review and swatched all the shades in the range. After some consideration, I have decided to get the shade #460 Ambre.
Guerlain Kiss Kiss Essence de Gloss comes in a narrow gold coloured case with a doe-foot applicator. 6ml of lipgloss retail for $28 (or 31 euros).
The shade Ambre is a mixture of nude beige and pink (though I’d say it is more on the beige side) with tiny microshimmer. It looks as if you have mixed Kiss Kiss Essence de Gloss #440 Myrrhe and #461 Baie de Rose. The shade is decently pigmented. I have naturally red lips and this shade neutralizes them pretty well. The shimmer is very fine, multicoloured , it is not obvious and all in all makes the lips glossier and shinier.
As for the staying power, the lipgloss stays for at least 3-4 hours, which is pretty impressive in my book. The gloss is almost non-sticky.
Another benefit is that it is very moisturizing, so you don’t have to worry it will dry your lips out.
