Lip Swatch Saturday – Guerlain ‘Spicy Burgundy’

In my last post, I talked about Dave Lackie’s #GuerlainLover VIP follower dinner.

They kindly sent us home with some products to try out, so why not share them on the blog, starting with the KISS KISS Matte Lipstick in ‘Spicy Burgundy’?

A the dinner I got the chance to pick the brain of Guerlain’s International Makeup Artist, Maxime Poulin.  I’m a sucker for good packaging, so I asked him what inspired the packaging for the KISS KISS Lipsticks.

He said that in the 1920’s makeup packaging was meant to be discreet, because at the time women wanted to be demure, especially in regards to their vanity.  As women became more liberated, they became more willing to be more adventurous with their look, as they were inspired by flapper girls.  It was then that women started getting their lipstick cases encrusted in diamonds to show off their wealth and status.

The packaging for the KISS KISS lipsticks was designed by jewelry designer Hervé van der Straeten, who designed the lipstick tube to show off elegant curves in a sleek, stacked cube design.
