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 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.
