While they are adored for their sophisticated finish and unique result, matte lipsticks tend to dry out lips. Enter Maison Guerlain and their new matte lipsticks with a gentler side. KISSKISS TENDER MATTE is a new collection of 15-shades, that Olivier Echaudemaison, Guerlain Creative Director of Makeup, has been inspired to create with an array of delicate colours.

With three active ingredients — hyaluronic acid, shea butter, and rose petal extract — this range covers lips in luscious shades while feeling very light. Well known for its soothing and nourishing properties, shea butter is paired with rose petal extract and serves up an extra dose of tenderness for 16-hours of lasting comfort. Add to that hyaluronic acid and lips are left smooth and plumped. The secret behind its luminous matte finish? Mattifying powder encapsulated in shea butter that glides on to the mouth with sensuality for a tender, blurry matte look like no other.

Each shade has been assigned a lucky number which holds special significance according to Chinese numerology. From nude to rosewood, pink to coral and red, each pigment used in this new palette of 15-shades rivals the others for the most delicateness, finesse and tenderness. Revealed through the prism of a luminous matte finish, the colours form a complete harmony that is neither too bright nor too dull. Just simply elegant. Perfect for accentuating any makeup look.

Created by the French designer Hervé Van Der Straeten in 2005, the KISSKISS curved design has not aged a day. Timeless character and in glossy blackness, this tube is sensual and wonderful to hold in the palm of your hand.

In downtown Vancouver, visit the Guerlain counters at Hudson’s Bay or Holt Renfrew Canada for the latest selection from Maison Guerlain and Guerlain Paris.
