REVIEW x SWATCH: Guerlain Kisskiss Lipgloss Rose Florida

Guerlain Kiss Kiss Rose Florida is currently my favorite lipgloss and the reason why I decided to blog about makeup. When I first applied, it was so beautiful in its own way I just felt like I had to share it.

Sephora describes the Kiss Kiss Gloss as:

A super shiny stay-put lip gloss.

Lips get drenched in sheer, pearly or sparkly color with the new Kiss Kiss revolutionary non-sticky formula that keeps lips moisturized while water-resistant and magnifying esters ensure long-lasting effects with a boost of volume. Its flat, smooth brush provides accurate application. Available in three different formulas: Petal Effect gives sheer coverage, Pearl Effect gets a boost of pearly essence, and Gloss Effect provides a subtle sparkling finish.

Rose Florida is a neutral pink with miniscule pearly shimmer and iridescent purple effect. The color stays true to what you see in the bottle. The shimmer is very subtle giving a muted pearly finish. The texture is rich and moisturizing without being overly sticky. It stays in place and lasts a good 3-4 hours even when I eat snacks.

What I like most about it is the natural looking but glossy finish it gives. At a normal distance, it merely gives you that natural flush in your lips without being overly glossy nor the shimmer being to obvious. The iridescent finish prevents the gloss from looking too shiny or sticky. It also leaves your lips feeling moisturized even after the color has gone.  
It applies sheer at first but can be thickened to to have a more even finish. I also like using it over my matte lipsticks to add some shine to it or make the color a little bit more interesting. It works well over dark or light colored lipstick because of the iridescent finish without completely changing the color.
