Extremely Hydrating Lip Color by Guerlain Rouge G

Monday, July 28, 2014


Taking a quick break from my current Happy Skin lippies obsession, I bring you a Guerlain Rouge G Exceptional Complete Lip Colour instead – another gift from one of my favorite luxury brands, Guerlain. Today we're going to talk about a lovely shade called #70 Gigolo. It’s another gorgeous shade to add to my ever growing lipstick collection. Just when you thought you have seen every color there is in the rainbow in lipstick palettes, Guerlain brings you this Gigolo shade.

From the Guerlain website:
"Lipstick is reinvented in an exceptional jewel with Rouge G, a subtle balance of intense colour and the comforting pleasure of a creamy lip balm. Behind this magical creation is an astounding formula: the unique combination of ruby powder for spectacular radiance, hyaluronic acid spheres for perfectly smoothed lips and wild mango butter for lasting hydration. 
Lips are intensely coloured, perfectly smoothed, moisturised and plumped up. For excessively perfect lips! A truly exceptional palette, lip glamour comes in 20 colourful shades as luxurious as they are radiant. Rouge G also comes in four Rouge G Le Brillant shades to dress lips in a luxurious scintillating effect."
I have written raves on packaging with other lipstick brands so you know how packaging is a very important factor for me. So imagine my excitement when I was reviewing this lipstick! It's such a gorgeous, functional packaging of this iconic lipstick, it’s the most easily recognisable design too among other brands. This white-gold reflective lipstick tube was designed for Guerlain by Lorenz Bäumer, a young talented jeweler in Place Vendôme.
This is most definitely the heaviest (and the bulkiest!) lipstick -apart form it being one of the most expensive in the market as well. Photos of this product doesn't do justice to the actual product, you have to hold this lippie in your hand to feel its full impact of the design and the weight.
The lipstick compact consists of two mirrors and the lipstick bullet holds the folded mirror together with a magnetic closure too so you don't have to worry about the lipstick tube coming off the capsule messing up your creamy lipstick.
The shade is described on their website is that it's “burgundy wine.” It actually is described perfectly well in color – it really is a burgundy wine with just a tiny tiny hint of a purple/blue undertone which makes it look a little bit plum. It’s deep, dark, and incredibly sexy – not a shade all would feel really comfortable in wearing so it takes a little bit of guts! It's more of a night shade. There is no shine, gloss or shimmer, but there is vibrancy in the color. It's very very bold.
The texture is very heavy but  it's extremely creamy! The lipstick is a little difficult to apply on the lips because of the very creamy consistency but it's very smooth and hydrating on the lips. Despite the high pigment, it does not crack on the lips or does is make your lips flake which is always very important.
It is very pigmented, and I can't stress that enough. When you apply it on your lips, a single swipe will deposit about 95-100% of product on the lips. The photo above shows the pigment of a single swipe! I used a lip brush to define the edges because this lipstick stains really well and it would be hard to remove if you make a mistake.
