Guerlain-Fall-2014-Kiss-Kiss-Lipstick-1

Guerlain cosmetics have been one of my biggest temptations this year. I love my two Guerlain foundations, Lingerie de Peau and Terracotta Joli Teint, as well as my very-special-treat-of-a-lipstick, Rouge G in Georgia… but I’ve managed to avoid the Guerlain counter since those purchases.

First, Guerlain is reissuing its KissKiss lipstick line with a new formulation and new shades. I love the shiny black cases.

I’ve read that the collection’s Japan launch is scheduled for August 1st. No news yet about the US release. Stay tuned…
