Have you tried Guerlain KissKiss Roselip? You could win them! One of the biggest beauty trends to emerge in 2015 is the new generation of lip balm. Once a drugstore staple, luxe lip balms blended with high quality essential oils, hyaluronic acid oil-based polymers started arriving on department store counters in early spring. But these aren’t any ordinary formulas. These balms offer the tint of a great lip gloss, a super lightweight texture and nourishing ingredients – all lightly scented. They work particularly well in cold, dry climates such as Canada and the Northern United States and Europe.
This month sees one of my favourite lip balms debut. Guerlain is introducing KissKiss Roselip, a hydrating and plumping tinted lip balm that boasts the most luminous shades I’ve seen. It’s a perfect mix of care and rich colour. The formula works to hydrate and repair lips through a rose extract complex developed in the LVMH laboratories. Rose oil extract is known to help repair, soothe and strengthen the skin barrier of the lips. Hyaluronic acid plumps thanks to its ability to bind with water molecules. This enhances the natural curves of lips. And an active oil-based polymer smoothes the surface of lips creating an even canvas on which to reflect light for beautiful shine.
There are six shades in the collection – each inspired by the colour of a bouquet of roses. There is even a “no-colour” shade for those who prefer a completely nude lip look.
R329 Crazy Bouquet
R371 Morning Rose
R372 Chic Pink

R374 Wonder Violette
R346 Peach Party
I gave away a collection of all six Guerlain KissKiss Roselip shades. I asked readers to tell me in a blog comment below their favourite shade. I drew the name Courteney S at random. Congrats Courteney!
