When I first saw the Guerlain Midnight Butterfly collection in person, the one item from the collection that caught my eye was the Guerlain KissKiss lipgloss in Shimmering Pink #802.
I have always been a fan of the Guerlain KissKiss lip products especially the lipglosses and I used to own them in the longer Divinora collection, with the beaten gold cap. It was one of the first high end lipglosses I owned and I liked them for being non-sticky, non-goopy but yet imparting a high shine and gloss factor and colour. It also turns out I’d never reviewed them here hehe…
The Guerlain Midnight Butterfly lipgloss in Shimmering Pink #802 is not a pink to my untrained eye. It is more of a purplish hue, with an iridescence when you catch the light. It comes in a square tube with a brush applicator. I like the brush applicator because it gives better control when applying gloss.
The metallic cap is embossed with the Guerlain name, and there is a butterfly etched on it. Very pretty and girly but it was not quite the reason I bought it. The reason I dug deep into my pockets for it was because of the colour. One look at the colour swatched on my hand and I knew it was for me. And I’m right!
