Matt lipstick addiction aside, I love me a good lipgloss that makes your lips all shiny and kissable. They’re not the most practical things to use – don’t get even get me started how everytime when I wear a lipgloss and leave home half of my hair somehow ends up glued to my lips – the struggle is real you guys! But the wonderful gloss effect makes it all worth it in the end. Some time ago I decided to splurge and buy three lipglosses – Guerlain Gloss D’Enfer after reading really good reviews. Read on to find out what I think about them.
First off, the package – it’s simple, it’s elegant and perfect to just throw in your purse. Nothing leaks (and that happened to me with one of the lipglosses I own from Catrice – the packaging was faulty and one third of the gloss leaked in my purse! It was a disaster!). The container is transparent so you see the color you’re grabbing – also a big plus.
The gloss itself is really nice on the lips – the formula is ideal – it’s not runny but also not as thick as for instance glosses from Clarins. It’s also not sticky at all which is wonderful! Each gloss has lovely shimmering particles that look very pretty on the lips making them look super kissable. Another huge plus is all the glosses really do hydrate the lips and leave them all nice and soft!
I have the glosses in three shades :
- 463 La Petite Robe Noir
- 464 Guimauve Vlop
- 467 Cherry Swing
All three colors are really pretty and delicately accentuate the lips. They last pretty long if you’re not drinking or eating too much – as with every other gloss the like to transfer. When they come off the lips the shimmer does linger on but I don’t mind it, it looks very subtle. The gloss stays put and does not slide. They all are semi-sheer. La Petite Robe Noir is a pink mauve with shimmer, Guimave Vlop is a light pink with shimmer (the lightest of the bunch) and finally Cherry Swing is an intense shimmery cherry-pink that is most visible on the lips.
Overall, I really love Guerlain Gloss D’Enfer, every color looks wonderfully on the lips, they make your lips appear bigger and shiny. They hydrate the lips really well. The formula is not too sticky and the product stays on the lips for a long time. The only downside in the high price range. However I’m in love with them, they’re my new favorite lipglosses and I definitely do recommend you give them a try!
