Wild Kiss (509)

Guerlain Wild Kiss (509) KissKiss Shine Bloom Lipstick BalmGuerlain Wild Kiss (509) KissKiss Shine Bloom Lipstick Balm ($39.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a medium-dark copper with moderate, warm undertones and a soft sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging.


The texture was lightweight, lightly emollient, but thin, which helped smooth out some of my lip lines. It wore well for four hours and felt lightly hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$39.00/0.11 oz. – $354.55 Per Ounce

The formula should offer “full coverage” with a “high-shine” finish that leaves lips looking smooth and hydrated. The coverage ranged from medium to primarily opaque, with a few shades closer to full coverage. As expected, the texture was soft, lightly emollient, and balm-like, which was comfortable to apply and wear.

Most of the shades applied evenly, softened the look of my lip lines, and were forgiving of imperfections, though some of the lighter shades were less forgiving. They lasted between three and five hours, with darker, more red-based shades staying longer and leaving subtle stains behind. At times, the formula had a strong, floral scent and subtle, soapy taste (though consistent with the brand’s lip products and fragrance).
