If I were wearing Guerlain’s KissKiss Lipstick in Rosy Silk ($37) and blew a kiss across a room to a handsome stranger (let’s call him Nick Jonas), that kiss would drift off my lips and float like a shimmery pink and gold apparition.
The featherweight formula is eminently forgettable…in that I forget sometimes when I’m wearing it because it’s so comfortable.
But the color is anything but forgettable. The slightly see-through pink with golden shimmer alights on my skin like sunshine filtering through the petals of a blooming cherry blossom tree, tender and romantic, ah…
I think one layer works best, which I apply directly from the tube, and then pat down with a finger. When I add more layers, they don’t help, and the formula starts to seek out flakes and settle into my lip lines.
Oh, I know where this shade wants to go…
It wants to go on a date! Picture it: a warm afternoon a few weeks from now, and you’re wearing a flowing floral print dress (ideally one with pockets, so you can take KissKiss along with you for touchups, which you’ll probably need to do every few hours) and strappy sandals. Nick Jonas is on my arm…
Wait — I meant your arm. This is supposed to be your fantasy. 🙂
If you’d like to wear Rosy Silk, don’t delay, because it’s a limited edition shade ($37), available now at Guerlain counters and online.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. How’s it going, my friend? I hope you’re having a good week so far.
