Guerlain introduces KissKiss Gold and Diamonds, the first-ever $62,000
lipstick custom designed in France, adorned with 110g of solid 18-carat
yellow gold and paved with a rain of 199 diamonds of 2.2 carats. Presented
at a scheduled consultation by Guerlain's Artistic Director, Olivier
Echaudemaison, KissKiss Gold and Diamonds is for those who indulge in
lavishness and appreciate exceptional design.
KissKiss Gold and Diamonds is a unique replica of the original
top-selling KissKiss lipstick created in 2005 by Olivier Echaudemaison and
acclaimed designer Herve Van Der Straeten.
"Lipstick is simple, yet mysterious. One never really knows what she
may uncover when the top is removed. This element of surprise creates
curiosity and longing, which is what I hope each woman experiences when she
clutches KissKiss Gold and Diamonds in the heart of her hand. It is
powerful and unimaginable, unique and desired, obtainable and unobtainable
at the same time," says Herve Van Der Straeten.
Housed in a black lacquered wooden case, KissKiss Gold and Diamonds is
refillable and accompanied by its own lip brush and protective black suede
pouch. The gold encasing can be customized with a name or message engraving
and the lipstick is available in 15 customizable shades hand selected by

About KissKiss Lipstick
Guerlain's KissKiss lipstick has become a favorite in the Guerlain
assortment of high-end colour cosmetics and has further established
Guerlain as an innovator in creating best-selling lipsticks (Guerlain
created the first automatic lipstick and the first solid lipstick "Forget
Me Not " in the 1920's). Enhanced with Precious Reflect pigments, KissKiss
Lipstick reproduces the effect of precious stones. True reflection boosters
(mica, titanium and silica), they play with light to offer lips dazzling
reflections in three tailor-made effects: metallic pearl, glamorous sparkle
or pure cream. The CreamSoft Complex (Vitamin A palmitate, alpha-bisabolol
and waxes), combined with oils chosen for their softness, provides instant
and long- lasting moisture. It offers lips suppleness and elasticity.
Vitamin E smoothes and protects. Subtly perfumed with violet and red
fruits. Easy to apply, KissKiss provides pure comfort and an exquisite
sensual texture for hours.
