Guerlain Gloss d'Enfer Maxi Shine FOTD

Gloss girls, take heed! Any day now, the 20 new Guerlain Gloss d’Enfer Maxi Shines will pop up on the shelf to tempt you with their comfortable, non-sticky gel texture, high glossy shine, and a reasonable amount of pigment (availability in Belgium: May 1st.

Guerlain Gloss d'Enfer Maxi Shine review

Guerlain Gloss d'Enfer Maxi Shine packaging hand scale

This is the packaging Guerlain Gloss d’Enfer Maxi Shine comes in. It is not hefty, but the cap still gives it a certain air of prestige. It contains 7,5 ml (0.25 oz) of product, which is a generous amount in comparison with most other glosses.

Guerlain Gloss d'Enfer Maxi Shine applicator

Guerlain Gloss d’Enfer Maxi Shine comes with a somehow flexible doe-foot applicator. I like how I can get just enough product out with this, so there is no messy excess or re-dipping involved! Like all Guerlain lipsticks, Guerlain Gloss d’Enfer Maxi Shine has a floral/perfume-y smell.

The formula of Guerlain Gloss d’Enfer Maxi Shine is pretty impressive! If you like glosses that are gel and cushiony instead of thick and sticky, you’re in luck because these are buttery smooth to the max! All three colors I have here go on easily and evenly, doesn’t look milky or sit in lip lines, and they last around three hours! The formula is hydrating as well, so you can easily wear it all day.

Here you see Gold Tchlack (400). The base is basically clear, but it is infused with flakey gold shimmer! The shimmer doesn’t feel rough on the lips, which is a nice bonus. When worn alone, my natural lip color shines through, but there is a pretty golden sheen! I think it will layer well on top of any lipstick when you want some extra bling.

I layered it in the swatch to show you the density of shimmer.

Next we have Candy Strip (which is allegedly selected by the face of the campaign, Natalia Vodianova. I think this is the shade she’s holding in her hand in the promo image). Candy Strip is a coral pink with quite a bit of tiny shimmer, but once on the lips the shimmer is not so obvious. For a gloss it packs a decent amount of pigment, and that’s what I love it for!

Left: one pass. Right: built up

I did all the face shots with the amount of gloss I pulled out from the wand, so you can see Candy Strip is definitely pigmented enough to be worn alone!

Last but not least, we have Prune Zip. When I saw the shade in the tube I was imagining something a bit vampier, but it turned out to be a rather bright fuchsia on me! I wouldn’t say it’s less pigmented than Candy Strip, but it has a jelly finish so the color seems less opaque. However, it definitely hangs in there even after the glossy sheen is mostly gone!

I think both Candy Strip and Prune Zip are versatile because they are moderately-pigmented. You can wear them alone as well as layering them!

Bottom line: Guerlain is a brand that knows how to do lipsticks, and it’s great to discover they are just as good at making glosses! Guerlain Gloss d’Enfer Maxi Shine is pleasant to wear, has some really gorgeous shades (I still can’t forget about Coral Wizz), and I like how many in the line-up seem to be moderately-pigmented (because you can wear them alone as well as layered)! Well done, Guerlain!

Did you see anything you like? Will you be checking these out? What are the important criteria for you when it comes to picking a gloss formula (do you avoid sticky ones at all costs? How much pigment is enough for you? Do you want it to be sparkling all the way?)?

    SO PRETTY on you Sunny! 3 hours, hey? Most glosses last maybe an hour on me so this sounds way better. Might have to try one out!

    • Sunny

      Thanks Tracy! Yup these last about 3 hours. I think the shine wears off in about 1.5, but the color hangs around for some more time!

  • http://www.unprofessionalbeautyblog.com Angela @ The Unprofessional Beauty Blog

    Candy Strip looks lovely. Non-sticky glosses are definitely my thing, so I may have to go check these out.

    • Sunny

      Yaay you should, Angela! There’s absolutely nothing sticky or weird about the texture!

  • http://redhotjillypeppers.com Redhotjillypeppers

    The colours look really nice. I don’t like to use sticky lipgloss (my hair keeps getting stuck in it) so I tend to use lipstick of a lip balm :)

    • Sunny

      True. Sticky glosses and hair should’t mix! I think that’s part of the reason why I prefer lipsticks as well. It gets seriously windy here sometimes!

  • http://www.beautyloves.be BeautyLoves

    They’re so pretty! I love them, and have one of them sitting in my purse. It is such an easy way to get some colour on your lips. I like both sheer and pigmented lipgloss, it just depends on my mood :)

    • Sunny

      I agree! As a general rule I prefer moderately pigmented glosses, because I’m usually too lazy to do any layering!

  • http://beautiesatwork.wordpress.com/ beauties

    I like ALL lipglosses! Sticky, not sticky, sheer, very pigmented….I’ll be checking the gloss d’enfers out for sure :D

    • Sunny

      Haha you’re not too picky when it comes to glosses! You should definitely check these out. I honestly can’t pick out too many shades in the line-up that I wouldn’t want to try!

  • http://www.valleydollbeautyblog.blogspot.com ValleyDoll

    Prune zip is totally my thing ! Gorgeous colours !

    • Sunny

      It’s so happy and brightening! Do check the line-up out when it’s available! I can’t wait!

  • http://mykingdomforadress.wordpress.com/ Alina

    Guerlain never fails to impress me! You look good in everything, don’t you? x

    • Sunny

      Aww Alina you’re too kind! I agree that Guerlain never fails to impress!

  • http://memoiselle.com/ Meryl @ Memoiselle

    My goodness! Look at those shades when it’s built up! So pigmented and rich :) You look great in that coral & pink! Looks so spring appropriate :)

    • Sunny

      Aww thanks Meryl! There are some deeper shades in the range and I’d totally love to check those out! I bet they’ll be just as versatile!

  • http://thesmalllittlethingsinlife.blogspot.ca/ Annick

    Prune Zip is absolutely perfect on you! I’ll have to give these a swatch when they arrive in Canada. I’ve been looking for a good, high end lip gloss. Dior might win this round though hahaha.

    • Sunny

      Hey Annick, do give these a chance too! I haven’t seen the rest of the Dior line-up. I’d say the texture of these is fairly similar to the Dior one, so it goes down to which color(s) you prefer!

  • Anne

    Gold Tchlack… *giggles* I know you can’t judge a product by its name, but still, I hardly see my self asking for it at the counter!
    On the other hand, Prune Zip and especially Candy Strip look lovely!

    • Sunny

      Haha yeah that’s a bit of a funny name for sure ;) I have a hard time deciding whether I like Candy Strip or Prune Zip more. I think fuchsia is amazingly brightening for my skin tone, but at the same time I’m a coral girl through and through!

  • http://miaka-mylife.blogspot.com Ruby

    These glosses look great on you, Sunny!

    • Sunny

      Thanks Ruby! They’re really easy to wear so do check them out!

  • http://www.peggytimmermans.be/blog peggy timmermans

    I love the texture, it’s just so smooth on the lips! Great colours you have there!

    • Sunny

      Thanks Peggy! I can occasionally tolerate stickiness if a gloss is very opaque and long-lasting (like some MAC ones), but other than that non-sticky is definitely the way to go!

  • http://www.pinklavenders.com Rainy Days & Lattes

    These seem to be perfect layering glosses! I actually really like the first one. I think it looks very unique and looks almost angelic :)

    • Sunny

      Hey Jen, I have this Dior gloss called Golden Sunrise from last year’s Summer Mix collection. It’s fairly similar to Gold Tchlack, but I think the shimmer in Gold Tchlack seems almost “flakey” and that’s what makes it lovely!

  • Eileen

    Guerlain’s Kiss Kiss Gloss has long been one of my favorites so I’m really looking forward to the arrival of these new beauties. I don’t think I’m going to have any trouble finding a few to go home with me. In fact, the trouble will probably be in limiting myself :-)

    • Sunny

      Haha yeah that’s the problem. I was looking at the promo image and it’s hard to pick out even 5 of these that I do NOT want!

  • http://eyeheartit.blogspot.com Larie

    I like my glosses to be non-sticky, and MOISTURIZING. That’s the number one thing for me!

    • Sunny

      Oh great! In that case Guerlain Gloss d’Enfer Maxi Shine IS your thing!

  • http://buyingcrueltyfree.com Catherine (@bcrueltyfree)

    I love a pigmented gloss and these sound pretty nice. I do have plenty of glosses at this point, so I won’t be rushing out to purchase, BUT they do look lovely

    • Sunny

      Hey Catherine, this line is permanent so don’t worry. You can wait till you’ve seen more swatches to decide which one(s) to try!

  • http://www.nymphette.be Marijke

    Love this glosses! Pretty colors, nice texture,..

    • Sunny

      I agree! It’s hard to nitpick!

  • http://kissandmakeupsbeautyblog.wordpress.com/ Kiss & Make-up

    All three look nice, but Candy Strip is definitely my favorite!

    • Sunny

      I’m personally very partial to that one because it’s a pinky coral LOL

  • http://mylucitedreams.com Taylor

    Candy Strip is gorgeous! Really nice shine and pigment, all very lovely on you :-)

    • Sunny

      Aww thanks Taylor! Candy strip seems more opaque because it has less of a jelly finish. It has to be my favorite out of the three as well, though Prune Zip doesn’t look half bad either ;)

  • http://mybeautysample.com/ Becca @ The Beauty Sample

    Of course I have zeroed in on Candy Strip :P It is much different swatched though–but still every bit as gorgeous! WANT! :D

    • Sunny

      Aww thanks Becca! Yeah it swatches more orange for some reason! I think it’s the undertone on my inner arm though!

  • http://www.cuteandmundane.com Dovey

    Hi Sunny, like many above, I love Candy Strip! The pigmentation looks great… and bright pinks are always pretty in my book :)

    • Sunny

      Hey Dovey, I think we’ve got a winner here! It looks more opaque on because it has a less jelly finish. Definitely very pretty on its own already!

  • http://aucupariabrumalis.wordpress.com Claire

    they look so beautiful, can’t wait to get my hands on them, love guerlain! the deeper colours look especially nice :)

    • Sunny

      Oh you’ll probably love these!!! Can’t wait to see what shades you’ll pick up!

  • http://mybeautyhoard.blogspot.com/ Jacqueline

    They all look so gorgeous on you Sunny. Candy strip looks divine on you.

    • Sunny

      Aww thanks Jacqueline! Make sure you check them out when they’re available!

  • http://lifeandlensofbeauty.blogspot.hk Jenni @ lifeandlensofbeauty

    love the Gold tchlack! it’ll be very wearable with any colored lip as a base…it’ll look good with a vampy red underneath!

    • Sunny

      Yup that’s what I think as well! Some extra bling for a red lipstick!

  • http://www.chloeash.com Lily (@ChloeAsh)

    I’m so not a gloss girl, but you make it sound so tempting! I was hoping Prune Zip is more vampy though…

    • Sunny

      Thanks Lily! Well they do have other vampier-looking shades, and I’d love to swatch them when they’re out!

  • http://www.nailsandcupcakes.com Isabelle

    Love that Prune Zip on you! Very different than what I though it would be :)

    • Sunny

      Thanks! I was expecting something darker and less brightening, but on me it’s a nice fuchsia!

  • http://wade-ashore.blogspot.com Caise

    the last one is gorgeous! it looks beautiful on you:)

    • Sunny

      Thanks Caise! I don’t know why I’m not more obsessed with fuchsia (yet). It’s actually very brightening!

  • http://procrastinatingpretty.blogspot.com Procrastinator

    Every single time I try to cull my list of glosses that I want to try (trying to keep it within brands that really do gloss well, like Chantecaille, Burberry or Clarins) you go and swatch another one in all its lovely glory! These are gorgeous, I love the shimmer in Gold Tchlack!

    • Sunny

      Haha sorry, girl! I’m not really a gloss girl, but I’ve definitely discovered textures that I like. Golden Tchlack will layer SO well on top of a vampier lipstick!

  • http://www.glambunctious.com Kristen @ Glambunctious

    Candy Strip looks fabulous on you, darling!

    PS: You had me at “non-sticky”!

    • Sunny

      Thanks for being so sweet, Kristen! These are really seriously non-sticky. If you’ve tried Dior Addict (or Dior Addict Ultra), the textures are fairly similar!

      • http://www.glambunctious.com Kristen @ Glambunctious

        I’ve never tried *any* Dior glosses – in fact the only Dior product I’ve ever tried was DiorShow mascara many years ago! One of these glosses might have to be my first! :)

        • Sunny

          If you like non-sticky glosses you need to take a look at these! The texture is absolutely smooth and buttery!

  • http://drivelaboutfrivol.blogspot.com Kate

    Aaaah I’ve been waiting and waiting for this post (well….since your March preview, lol) Guerlain makes my favourite glosses (kisskiss extrait) and I’m thrilled to try out some of the newJELLIES :D Love both Candy Strip and Prune Zip on you — you look even sunnier than usual ;)

    • Sunny

      Aww thanks Kate! My first impression on these is GREAT, but I had to sit on them for a bit because it was way too early! These are very very easy to wear, and I like the moderate amount of pigment. I almost never wear sheer glosses on their own, but I am too lazy to layer in most cases ;)

    I have a hard time paying a lot for glosses since there are so many great ones at all price range. But these look gorgeous and my favourite of the three is Candy Strip. It’s surprisingly pigmented on your lips versus how it looks in the tube!

    • Sunny

      Hey Liz, so what are your favorite budget-friendly glosses?

      Candy Strip is very pigmented once it’s on! I was really surprised as well! There’s no layering involved either.
