Guerlain Kiss Kiss Lipsticks, Swatches of all the Shades

This week was the launch of Guerlain's Kiss Kiss lipsticks in Germany and I made sure to quit work a little earlier than usual to drop by the counter to swatch them. As I did by some other collections recently, I found it helpful of me and everyone else, especially for those of you who can't make it to the counter to swatch and document all the shades. I also found myself checking out my own swatches to buy more shades recently with Dior's Fluid Sticks ;-)


Packaging, Guerlain Kiss Kiss Lipsticks



The package of these are breath taking. I love love love black and gold. Does anyone else remember of this song when they see the packaging? The packaging of Guerlain is anyone of the best in the market. Think about the famous design of Rouge Ga without any edges and the creative mechanism of Rouge Automatics. Kiss Kiss Lipsticks offer a more classical touch and a very luxurious feel. I will rave about these in the next post though when I got to show you the ones I have.... 

A little disclaimer: The below descriptions are first impressions and mostly are based on swatching rather than wearing (I would need a day and more lips to try all of them on my lips) so please take them with a grain of salt and let me know if you have any corrections.

A lovely SA helped me to remove the part with the lipsticks and gave me a nice table to sit, swatch and take my photos freely, I am very grateful for that. Let me start introducing the shades before I write longer ;-) There are 25 Shades being released. The lipstick feels light weight and moisturizing, the finishes range from frosty to glossy and satin, some are even shimmery with glitter particles.

#300 Golden Girl: light golden beige with satin finish

#303 Beige Booster: mid-toned natural satin pink

#304 Air Kiss: Frosty plummy shade, which I lost no time in trying out on my lips. Unfortunately the finish was too frosty for my liking, or maybe it was the lights\, I will check that one again once more.

#305 Forever Brown: Deep reddish brown with frosty finish.

#320 Red Insolence: A lovely warm mid-toned rosa with satin finish.

#321 Red Passions: The most opaque of all the shades, applies like a dream, I am sure you will love it if you are into bright lippies.

#322 Red On Fire: Such a lovely name, it is a wearable shimmery red.

#323 Spicy Girl: If you are into warmer red, this might be for you, the finish is satin to frosty.

Now ready for more red.... I can see red lovers all over this collection!

#324 Red Love: A blue based mid-toned red with a tad of transparency for an easy every-day wear. It has satin finish. If I would pick one red from the collection, this would be the one I get.

#325 Rouge Kiss: This is the shade which was used on the model on promo photos. It is a natural, universally flattering red, a little warmer than Red Love but not too warm, it also has similar finish to Red Love, satin and slightly transparent. 

#326 Love Kiss: A darker and warmer sister of Rouge Kiss, finish is satin to frost.

#327 Red Strass: Similar to Love Kiss in finish and opacity, but cooler, more blue based.

#328 Red Hot: A dark berry red with some fine shimmer

#340 Miss Kiss: Fun name again... It is a cooler coral with glossy and somehow frosty finish

#341 Peach Fizz: A warm coral with a similar finish to Miss Kiss

#343 Sugar Kiss: A warm pink or a cool coral, name it... Finish is similar to Miss Kiss and Peach Fizz, it is the coolest of these three.

#344 Sexy Coral: This is an ultimate shade for coral lovers out there, it applies smoothly and not too frosty (which is great!) it should be very flat erring on warm skin tones

#360 Very Pink: An opaque mid-toned fuchsia with satin finish (again not frosty)

#361 Excessive Rose: Gorgeous shade for bright lip lovers. Mid-toned blue based pink with satin finish. 

#362 Cherry Pink: Deep blue based red with satin finish, which is slightly more shimmery than other three of the bunch.

#364 Pink Groove: A mid-toned plummy pink with similar finish to Cherry Pink. This one is just gorgeous, I tried it on, and liked it but #369 stole my heart a tad more but I might revisit it ;-)

The last set is a little more transparent and slightly transparent shades, they are not frosty but they have a shimmery/glossy base. 

#363 Fabulous Rose: A deep plummy rosy shade with finish as explained above.

#366 Fall In Rose: A gorgeous corally nude, oh so pretty... I am definitely going back tomorrow to check this one out and try it on!

#368 Baby Rose: A cool mid-toned rose with some glitter particles, which may be desirable or not depending on your taste.

#369 Rosy Boop: Hilarious name and my pick from the collection, it is slightly darker than Baby Rose and doesn't have the glitters, so applies more smoothly. I will review it together with Pinky Groove and Golden Girl soon. Maybe I fall for Fall in Rose too (!).


Also check out this post for more swatches and especially for other shades, obviously depending on the region, there are differences. I was wondering why we have #300 and #303 but not #301 and #302.

  1. Gorgeous and SO HELPFUL!!!! :) thank you so much, Sara! I already picked up Red Love a while ago and enjoying the beautiful formula. Truly, Guerlain makes some of the nicest lipstick formulas! <3
    I will refer to this post again when I am shopping for my next shades.

    1. Thanks for stopping by Belly. I am glad it is helpful to you too, I use my own post to shop too lol. At the counter I am like "just a minute, let me check" ;-) I think it is because the plastic part at the display has usually another color than the lipstick, maybe they should consider hanging swatches on the counters ;-))

  2. Thanks for swatching all of these. I love the color and name of Excessive Rose! Surprised to see so many frosty finishes here, though. I suppose the '90s really are back...

    1. Excessive Rose is such a pretty bright shade, I hope you are enjoying it. It is since last spring, Chanel's Moire collection and Dior's frosty lippies, then MAC's frosts this summer with Alluring Aquatics, it seems frosts are back in a more sophisticated way.

  3. Forever Brown, Fabulous Rose & Spicy Girl but frost never looks good on my darker lips... sigh!

    1. Hi Lily,
      I think frosts might look nice on you too if you pick the right color. Fabulous Rose is so pretty. Spicy girl, oh yeah that too :-) Do you have a counter close by to try it out before purchase?

  4. Thank you for searching them all. I see a lot of reds and corals and neutrals too here. The packaging as you said is super classy and chic. I would definitely try sugar kiss and very pink. xx

  5. Thank you Sara for the review. I caved in and got Air Kiss. Yes, it has some shimmer but only noticeable under certain lights. I think it looks gorgeous though, and wears beautifully, while the shimmer is not as predominant. But then, it doesnt bother me at all, really. I love it.

    1. Oh thanks to let me know. Air Kiss was the first one which caught my attention when I was swatching. Then I didn't like it on me because it was too shimmery under the store lighting but maybe outside it would look much better... I need to go back and try it out again :-)

  7. Hi Sara! Thanks so much for taking the time to swatch and post all of these. Too many of these are calling my name (a few of the reds, the corals, even the beigey shade) -- I will have to hurry and check these out! I'm so with you on Rosy Boop, that name made me laugh :D.

    1. Make sure you have a few hours free before going to the counter lol. There are so many options and they are all very pretty. Rosy Boop is my favorite actually, apart from the name lol.

  8. Hey Sara, thanks so much for the swatches! I'm eyeing so many of them that I don't even know where to start! Can't wait to see these in real life. Talking about songs, these remind me of Prince's Kiss lol

    1. Yes you will love them, they are soo pretty. You mean the Prince's version of Tom Jones song? lol now I start singing it and I can't stop!

  9. Can't wait to meet these in person! Thank you so much for the swatches, because they definitely point to some early favourites. I'm already eyeing Red Strass, Cherry Pink and Rosy Boop.

    1. Hi Kate,
      Yesterday I wore again Rosy Boop, I am in love with this one. I wish I could wear reds as good as you do, then I would have to leave my CC at the Guerlain counter ;-)

  10. OMG thanks so much for the swatch-fest!! I picked up Rouge Kiss and Excessive Rose some weeks ago, and really feel all grown up wearing a "proper" old school lipstick (in a good way) that you feel and experience. I'm hoping to add Red Passions, Love Kiss and maybe Forever Brown to my collection some time. What shades are you most wanting (or purchased)?

    1. I am loving Rosy Boop, that one is my favorite from the collection. I went back again and tried Peach Fizz and Fall in Rose, although they are both pretty, I was not convinced how they looked on me. I have Golden Girl too, I tried it on and liked it. I also have Pink Groove, which is a bit bolder than the other too and plummy so another love.

  11. Ooo will you look at all the pretties!!! Several have caught my eyes! Thank you so much for all the swatches! We've recieved them here but I didn't stop since I took advantage of another brand's 25% off but I'll go back! Loved the song and didn't know it, I guess it didn't cross the Atlantic. Me it reminds me of James Bond who was nicknamed Mr Kiss Kiss Bang Bang at one point (kind of goes with the video doesn't it?). :)

    1. Oh Helene, you will love the lippies, let me know what caught your eye after you tried them out. Those classic chic packaging would certainly also fit in a James Bond movie :-))

    wow!!! this is better than going to my local counter and trying to swatch these myself! yes, i looked at each and everyone of your swatches. thankyou so much! i tend to gravitate to the lighter colors. so 1 of each please in those "categories"! i have to have at least 1 of these. those pinky/corally colors are practically calling out my name! xo.

    1. LOL, thanks so much. I am using my swatches also to preselect some shades that I would like to test at the counter. If I go there and start swatching everything, I get confused with the enormous shade selection ;-) I like lighter shades too and this range has lots of lovely ones.

  14. Wow, thanks for all of the helpful swatches! Looks like a gorgeous range of lipsticks and the packaging is lovely. I'm eyeing up 360 and 361 especially! xo

  16. wow congratulations on swatching all of them! i'm really too lazy to do so, and i find lipsticks really need to be tried on in person.... anyway they're ALL gorgeous, the formula is incredibly comfortable, so one cant go too wrong! Which ones did you end up bagging, Sara???

  17. Thank you for that swatches. Unfortunately in UK only few shades is available. I own 368, which is my personal favourite, but I'm thinking about buying more shades, maybe 364 and 366, too.
