I bought this lipstick not so long ago but it has already won my heart over and became one of the best nude ones in my makeup collection ever. Before this one, I used to buy lipsticks from the classic collection, which are housed in black cases. I was so curious to give a try to this KissKiss matte collection.
Full name - Guerlain KissKiss Moisturizing Velvet Matte Lipstick.
This 190th Anniversary Limited Edition KissKiss Matte, moisturising and plumping matte lipstick, as intense as traditional lip colour that offers the comfort of a lip balm, adopts a dazzling Ruby Red look!
The subtle chili pepper extract that has been slipped into the formula makes lips look fuller while the precious oil and hyaluronic acid help smooth and moisturise them.

The Guerlain packages are always attention magnets. And this KissKiss Matte Lipstick isn’t an exception. Beautiful, expensive and luxurious.
The stick of the product is droplet-designed and it has the KissKiss cut in.
Shade M306 is a complicated beige color. It’s light and makeup sensitive and shines either from a hint of beige or lilac to the warm peach hue.
The product in comparison with MAC Really me, Guerlain m306 Caliente beige, Givenchy 215 Neo nude.
These lipsticks might seem the same in the sticks but the swatches reveal all the truth.
As for the Make up for ever M103 shade it seems like it doesn’t have anything in common with the photo in the stick but in the swatches, I can see how similar these are.
I think that this color of the Guerlain lipstick is really universal and will flatter many of you. The aroma is pleasant and floral. I can feel it only when I apply the product on my lips.
Product characteristics: The texture of the lipstick is very thin. I almost don’t detect it on my lips. It can accentuate my lip relief but as minimal as possible for a matte lippie. The finish is soft and matte. My lips don’t look mixed. The formula isn’t skin-friendly. It doesn’t dry out or supple my lips.
The staying power is okay. I can see it for several hours on my lips, though it won’t live through a meal, which isn’t a drawback for me at all.
I can touch-up and I appreciate that I can apply it right from the stick over the already existing layer. It may accentuate flaking skin but not more than any other matte lipstick.
The photos of the product on my lips:
Guerlain KissKiss Matte Lipstick in the color M306 has become a great go-to nude option for me.
It’s very comfy on my lips, it offers a rather good staying power and its pleasant texture and shade make me think positively about it!
