first two from the Guerlain Boutique in Las Vegas, I ordered three more, carefully comparing notes with Rhonda Heathcoat to make sure I would love them when they arrived - and I do.
The 20 shades of Gloss d’Enfer guarantee our lips a shimmering, radiant,
and plumping finish. Maxi Shine’s oil composition creates a
moisturizing barrier to ensure an intense softness. The ergonomic
applicator allows for easy lip definition, more effectively evoking the
hint of a smile. Additionally, each shade presents varying degrees of
coverage and pigment intensity. The perfect partner for a desirable,
appealing smile, Maxi Shine offers tailor-made effects for beautifully
I took swatch photos in full, afternoon sun. I applied the glosses to my arm with their own doe-foot applicators.
The oh-so-lovely Coral Wizz is a pink-peach blend that is as perfect as it gets for spring and summer. How could you resist sheer, shiny, lusciously colorful?
As advertised, these lip glosses offer a smooth and non-sticky texture and glide onto the lips like a
second skin. Guerlain says we'll forget it's even on. I can understand that, now that I'm wearing them. Composed of
mineral and vegetal oils, the texture forms a protective barrier on the
lips that prevents moisture from evaporating and keeps the lips soft and
hydrated. It's love.
Two of these are going in my handbag. I don't want to leave home without them. Now, I'm wondering if I can resist buying all of the rest of the shades - when I win the lottery.
By this point, Guerlain's Gloss d'Enfer Maxi Shines should be at all Guerlain counters. Or you could call Rhonda at the Guerlain Boutique at (702) 732-7008. She would be glad to help you.
