Questions & Answers for Guerlain Kiss Kiss Liplift

Question
Does Kiss Kiss liplift change the color of the lips?
I have very pigmented lips, in case to wear lighter lipstick, I apply concealer or foundation under the lipstick. Can I have the same effect by wearing kiss kiss liplift under light color lipstick?

It will slightly neutralize the lip color.

answer 2
It will not change the color of your lips-only prepares the lips for
application of lipstick-it is a primer and plumper. Smashbox makes a lip primer (since your lips are heavily pigmented) you
could put that over your Kiss Kiss and then your lipstick and you will get the color you want instead of using foundation.

It does offer some coverage and probably would work fine for that. However, I needed something that stops lipstick from feathering, so I sent it back, but I did LOVE the hydrating effect and feel of this primer. Just wish it worked for my problem, but it may work well for you....

It is a lip primer and I think it would cover pigmentation.

Seeing that this product is a light color, it will neutralize the color of your lips so that the lipstick color applied will appear closer to the color in the tube and not darken on the lips.

I have waited to apply lipstick and applied it immediately afterward, it didn't seem to make a difference. As for smudging I just rub my lips together and then apply the lipstick. I have not run into any problems yet.

No waiting time necessary-just apply to lips making sure
you get the outline (very important) filled in and the lips-
then apply lipstick. Smooth as silk.

I don't think you "need" to but I do wait a minute before applying my lipstick just to let it set a little. It seems to work best that way but I do not think it is necassary.

After exfoliating your lips, apply lipliner, smudge a bit, then apply Kiss Kiss Liplift and pad around your lips with fingertip for a more even coverage.

I wondered that too, so I just make it the first thing I put on when I start doing my makeup so by the time I get to lipstick it's had about 10 minutes to moisturize and set.

I apply and smooth the product, but don't spend much time doing it. I focus application at the edge and beyond the lip line since my main objective is to eliminate feathering. In the morning, it is one of the first cosmetics I apply so if it needs to set - which I have not found to be the case - it can, by the time I apply my lipstick. During the day, if I need to reapply lipstick, I apply the Liplift, smooth it briefly and apply lipstick immediately.

Guerlain Kiss Kiss Liplift can be used as a balm or a conditioner. Although the description says that the balm does not change your natural lip color, the balm does leave a "whitish" tint.

Oh, forgot to mention in my review "Kiss Kiss My Lips!" that the metal case is very chic!

I don't think it matters-lipstick or gloss - it's a personal choice-
it does the job of smoothing and plumping. I love it.

I've found that it doesn't work as well with glosses, since it has a very creamy finish. Glosses tend to blend with it and wind up looking milky and the color changes. Hope that helps!

It is a good primer. The best I have used... and it is also a "plumper" in the way that it smoothes out lip wrinkles and your lips fill out and look fuller, better.

You know it is either my imagination or my lips plump up a bit. I did notice this and when I bought it I did not know it was supposed to plump. I was just looking for a good primer and moisturizer. I cannot compare it to other plumpers because I have not used them.

Question
compare it to ModelCo Lip Wax?
I've been using the ModelCo lip wax kit for 2 years now, both the nude lip liner pencil and the wax. I really like it, but it's $30 for the kit and I think it's expensive. Has anyone tried both ModelCo's product and this Kiss Kiss Liplift? If so, did you find one better than the other? I know this is $31 but would it be worth switching?

Since I haven't used the product you reference, just the Liplift, I don't know the effect you are looking for. I can recommend the Liplift for it's smoothing effect and giving my lipstick a good base to hold onto. While I don't have an issue with feathering, I'm sure this would help that as well. I don't notice a plumping effect but I don't need that, I have plumpy lips to begin with.
