I recently got a card sampler of some Guerlain Rouge G Lipsticks – here are the swatches:
I had to go and buy a full sized one to try out after this success!
The lipstick is expensive (I can’t remember how much, I think it was £25). It comes in heavy duty, luxurious packaging which has sexy curves, and pops open to reveal a mirror inside.
I chose a nude shade because I know I had to pick something I could wear regularly. I went for 01 Guerlinade after much umming and ahhing. It looked like a nude beige with a hint of orange.
As mentioned before, the texture of this lipstick is divine – it’s just stunning, it’s less in your face that YSL Rouge Volupte but it’s still creamy goodness.
The packaging – I could live without. Quite frankly, it’s heavy and cumbersome. Yes, it clicks open to reveal a mirror – very space age, but I don’t really need it – I’d prefer something smaller and slicker to be honest.
My mum would like this. She still whips out her lipstick to apply at the dinner table! But me personally, it’s not my style.
On the lips:
I don’t like this as much as Galia (which the SA told me I shouldn’t buy because it would make me look like ‘death’). Gah.
Anyway, do you have this lipstick? Would you splash out on a special lipstick?
