Guerlain Rouge G de Guerlain Customizable Lipstick Review
Product Description
The Guerlain Rouge G de Guerlain Lipstick is one of the brand’s most iconic, and certainly its most luxurious lipstick. Set in a customizable case (that even includes its own built-in mirror), this product screams luxury. But the actual lipstick formula of this product is nothing to diminish either. Part of what makes this product so beloved is that its formula is every bit as luxurious (and effective) as the product casing. We’ve yet to find another luxury lipstick that just seems this… perfect.

Guerlain has brought back its iconic Rouge G de Guerlain in a huge way by reinventing the packaging, and granting it a level of customizability (and luxury) we don’t see in lipsticks very often. Yes, it’s absolutely gorgeous, but in our opinion, the actual formula of this lipstick isn’t anything to scoff at either.

This lipstick definitely ticked off plenty of the boxes that we look at when picking up this kind of lipstick. First of all, one of the high points of this lipstick is the casing. It feels luxurious (without being particularly heavy), you have the option to pick and choose an outer case design that matches your personality, and it even has a mirror for you to use when applying on the go. In terms of color, this product has a fantastic, well-balanced shade range that carries plenty of shades, even bolder ones, that you can use. And these shades also manage to translate into bright, vivid colors once you apply the product to your lips. The finish is to die for, giving a semi-glossy look to the lips that also makes them feel slightly plumper and more cushiony. And the best part? For a lipstick that feels so hydrating on the lips, it still manages to stay on really well, and “stains” your lips just a little bit before it fades out, so you still have color on your lips even when the product has faded.

Despite our enthusiasm about this product, if we absolutely had to nitpick, there are a few things we’d probably change about this product. It’s not a dealbreaker, but the fragrance can be a little bit strong. It’s not bad or chemical-like, but we’re not the hugest fans of strongly scented cosmetics. Also, for this particular product, we wouldn’t recommend coating your lips with too many layers, as we’re wont to do with more hydrating lipsticks. Too thick an application can make it feel (and even look) globby on the lips, and nobody likes that.

This lipstick is pretty close to perfect for this kind of formula, in our opinion. In addition to being hydrating, it’s strongly pigmented, long-wearing, and generally very comfortable to wear, which makes it a win in our book, for sure.

SUITABLE FOR: All skin types.
