Guerlain Gloss d’Enfer Maxi Shine Review & Swatches

Guerlain Gloss d'Enfer Maxi Shine

Guerlain Gloss d’Enfer Maxi Shine ($30) is due out on counters in April but I’m bringing you an early review and swatches for your viewing pleasure.

Available in 20 shades Gloss d’Enfer is brand new lipgloss that will remain a part of the permanent collection. The new gloss formula promises intense color and shine with a weightless texture.

Take a look!

Guerlain Gloss d'Enfer

Guerlain Gloss d’Enfer Maxi Shine’s formula contains a moisturizing formula that ensures lips remain soft and hydrated through the wear. These have a smooth non-sticky texture that glides onto lips easily without any patchiness. They have a texture that makes you virtually forget you’re wearing lipgloss at all yet still manage to keep lips hydrated throughout that wear. Not heavy, not sticky, nor tacky and virtually weightless makes for a beautiful lipgloss experience.

They offer a gorgeous shiny finish that’s radiant and in some cases brilliant thanks to the heavy dose of sparkle in some of the shades. There’s a wide range of colors to choose from featuring beiges, reds, oranges and pinks with pigmentation that varies from sheer to full color pay off depending on the colors you go for.

Several of the shades I tried provided an excellent tint to my lips with a highly glossy finish. I can never understand a lipgloss that doesn’t provide some shine, seriously how can you call it a gloss without shine? These provide gorgeous color and shine thus earning their “Maxi Shine” title.

The looser consistency and lack of tack doesn’t prevent the gloss from having a decent three hour wear time prior to needing a touch up. Three hours may seem like a shorter wear but for a gloss this thin it’s actually fairly decent. Color doesn’t migrate, feather, nor does it loose its intensity throughout that wear.

I think as Spring approaches and we head into Summer you’ll want something as gorgeously weightless as this on your mouth. Guerlain Gloss d’Enfer Maxi Shine provides juicy color, a high glossy finish, and a feather light formula that’s comfortable to wear.

If you love Guerlain lipgloss I guarantee you’ll adore these Maxi Shines!

They’ll be available shortly at all Guerlain counters as well as at select of Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus, and Bergdorf Goodman locations.

    Tangerine Vlam looks yummy on you! Won’t be getting any of these (poor college student and all) but they do look lovely!


    • 3/28/13 14:05 the Muse:

      aw aditi been there girl! Know how you feel! seems a long time ago. study first, beauty later ;-D <3! Get some of the Rimmel Glossy Glosses, those are cheap and have a fairly nice formula chica if you’re in for a little cheap thrill ;-D good pigment too!


  • 3/28/13 13:58 Swarnali B:

    Rouge shebam, tangerine vlam and cherry swing look so tempting! 😀 Very nice review, Muse! :)


    • 3/28/13 14:05 the Muse:

      tangerine vlam so worth picking up Swarnali ;-D gorg color! Thanks Miss <3!


  • 3/28/13 14:01 Nadia:

    Pretty! I particularly like Rouge Shebam on you. Muse, what is your favorite lipgloss formula?


    • 3/28/13 14:04 the Muse:

      thanks Nadia. I dunno, it’s kinda always changing…I’m not a huge lipgloss, person, I tend to migrate to palettes/eyeshadows so I don’t pay a ton of attention to gloss. I know I ADORE Too Faced’s old Mirror Mirror Gloss. No color but DAMN the shine was amazing on that gloss ;-D how about you?


      • 3/28/13 14:38 Nadia:

        I am not familiar with those Too Faced glosses. I LOVE the Dior addict glosses but don’t own too many because of the price tag lol


        • 3/28/13 14:42 the Muse:

          they are a squeeze tube, really basic, no color, but SO much shine. I think they are only in the clearance bin now when TOo Faced has a sale but try them, swear they are the glossiest gloss you’ll ever wear 😀 I like Dior Addict too! good stuff, must say Maxi Shine tops that formula though, it’s far lighter a texture and offers better color pay off ;-D some of the Addict glosses are so sheer!


  • 3/28/13 14:59 KristyQ:

    Browny Clap???? OMGOMGOMOGMGOM. 😉 These look like amazing juicy goodness!


    • 3/28/13 15:25 the Muse:

      it’s a GORG nude kristy, very wearable 😀 my lip swatches do NOT do it justice because I stink at photo taking 😀


      • 3/28/13 16:06 KristyQ:

        No, you don’t! It does look gorgeous – I was totally laughing at the name. IT’s THE CLAP. I don’t know……hahaha. Happy Easter! :)


      • 3/28/13 16:47 Janelle:

        I am in love with this color but I DO NOT see myself ever saying the name. I will ask for it at the counter and tell others what it is by number if they ask. Sorry to be graphic but it sounds like a disease….

    Hi. Came across your site while searching for information about Guerlain KissKiss Lip gloss. I know they are made with three different formulas. How do you know which color is made with which color? I’m looking for a color that is made with Petal Effect formula. If you can respond or guide me in the right direction, I would appreciate it. Thank you for your time!


  • 4/20/13 18:20 Ange:

    I meant to ask which KissKiss lip gloss is made with which FORMULA. Thank you.
