Guerlain Gloss d'Enfer Maxi Shine Lipgloss ♡ #901 L'Oiseau de Feu Review & Swatches

Guerlain Gloss d'Enfer Maxi Shine Lipgloss: #901 L'Oiseau de Feu

Guerlain Gloss d'Enfer Maxi Shine Lipgloss in shade #901 L'Oiseau de Feu was a limited edition product from the A Night At The Opera 2014 Holiday Collection. I also have the Petrouchka Eye & Blush Palette from this collection and I absolutely adore the blushes from that palette.

There are two colours of the Maxi Shine Lipgloss available from the A Night At The Opera collection, one is a very opaque red and another is a gold glitter top coat that I have and will be reviewing today. 

When I saw this lipgloss at the Guerlain stand in Smith & Caughey's, my first thought was it looks so luxury and I have never seen any clear lipgloss as pretty as this. I am a sucker for gold things and a crazy addict for limited edition beauty products, although I already own a bunch of amazing clear glosses, this was a must have and nothing could change my mind!

Guerlain Gloss d'Enfer Maxi Shine Lipgloss is a permanent product from the brand, there are over twenty shades available from this range and the lipgloss is described as a lip product with intense colour, high shine and a plumping effect. 

#901 L'Oiseau de Feu is a limited edition shade and it is described as a sheer top coat with golden pearls. In the tube it looks like a clear gloss packed with loads of gold sparkles and on the lips, the sparkles are almost invisible, unless if look closely. It is one of those products that if you're wanting more gold sparkles to show on the lips, you have to fish out the product; this reminds me of those clear nail polish with the heart and stars shapes of glitters, a lot of the times when using those nail polish, I always have to apply a few more coats to get that heart shape glitter I wanted.

Guerlain Gloss d'Enfer Maxi Shine Lipgloss has a very strong, flora-ish, soap-y scent. Other Guerlain products I have tried also have an unique smell, but non is as strong as this. The smell lingered around after application and it disappeared after a few minutes.

Guerlain #901 L'Oiseau de Feu wears beautifully as a clear gloss on its own, it also looks pretty when worn on top of other lip products. I don't find that it has a juicy, plumping effect as Guerlain claimed when worn on its own, I feel like it's just like any other clear gloss; but when worn over a lip pencil, the lipgloss instantly gives you that plump lips look.

Here is one of my favourite lips look combination: MAC Lip Pencil in Soar and Guerlain Maxi Shine Lipgloss in #901 L'Oiseau de Feu.

It takes a couple of swipes to get the perfect full-lips application and the lipgloss wears for approximately five hours. It is comfortable during wear and the texture is non-sticky. Guerlain Maxi Shine Lipgloss feels so lightweight, as if you're not wearing anything and at the same time it feels moisturizing.

Since this shade is a limited edition product, it is no longer available on the market. I feel so bad every time I review a limited edition beauty product that is not available to purchase. *please forgive me* ~

Overall, I am a huge fan of Guerlain's products, the brand is expensive and it is a truly luxury high-end brand. From the few products that I have tried so far, I love every single one of them and I would recommend its products to anyone that is looking to splurge on a high-end brand that is actually worthy and offers a high quality product.

I am currently on a shopping-ban from now until June this year, *boo-hoo* *I can do it!* as soon as I am off the shopping-ban, I want to try another Guerlain lipgloss, this time with more pigmentation. Please do recommend a few shades of Guerlain Maxi Shine Lipgloss that you have tried and love.

  1. Oh! The shimmers are very subtle once on the lips! It's pretty :) Honestly wouldn't spend so much on a lipgloss but to each their own.
