Guerlain KissKiss Hydrating Matte Lipstick Review

Guerlain KissKiss Hydrating Matte Lipstick Review
Product Description
Guerlain’s KissKiss Matte Lipstick is pretty great at what it does. The luxurious packaging of the product calls out to you, as if promising a great experience which it delivers. In this lipstick, you get gorgeous, vivid color, as well as great wear time. Our only real gripe about the formula is that it’s particularly drying, especially compared to other matte lipsticks in bullet form, so you’ve got to watch out for that. And the $37.00 price tag leaves you with a pretty big choice to make. But we appreciate this lipstick and didn't regret investing in it.

The KissKiss Matte Lipstick is a relatively new offering from Guerlain’s cosmetics arm. While this product isn’t one of Guerlain’s more iconic products, its surging popularity definitely makes it an interesting subject.

The blocky gold encasement of the lipstick immediately catches the eye, and captures the imagination—about what kind of product rests inside, and how good it actually is. To that end, it’s pretty good, the pigmentation present in the lipstick formula is strong, needing less effort to get some strong, vivid color out of it. It’s also capable of staying on the lips for a decent amount of time, especially for a bullet lipstick formula.

Formula-wise, perhaps the biggest downside to this product is how harshly it mattifies the lips. For a bullet-type lipstick, this lipstick is surprisingly drying—definitely not on the level of a matte liquid lipstick, but definitely more drying than your average matte bullet lipstick. In some ways, this is also a benefit, but we do have to leave it in the negative column because of how uncomfortable the matte finish of the product is. Of course, the price is also a downside. $37.00 is a lot to be paying for lipstick, so you’re really gonna have to weigh your choices with this product.

Generally, the KissKiss Matte Lipstick is a pretty formidable product with an impressive formula that only slightly goes sideways.

SUITABLE FOR: All skin types.
