Guerlain’s New Rouge G de Guerlain Lipstick in Madame Batifole, and Fun With the Letter “G”

Published in: Guerlain, Lips, Makeup, Product Reviews

Guerlain Madame Batifole Rouge G

That’s Guerlain’s new Rouge G de Guerlain Lipstick in Madame Batifole ($49.50) on my lips, one of three new limited edition Rouge G’s available now in the fall 2013 Voilette de Madame collection

“G” is for…

Giggle, as in “with delight,” which is what you’ll probably do the first time you see Guerlain’s new Rouge G de Guerlain Lipstick in vibrant fuchsia Batifole on your lips.

Gasp! — which you’re also liable to do when you hold the limited edition packaging in yo’ paws (and realize that it costs $49.50, holy crap!).

Generous, which is what Guerlain was with the amount of pigment they squeezed into this tube. One swipe of the super smooth formula covers my lips completely — like crazy opaque.

Glamorous, which is how you’ll feel whenever you take a peek at your reflection in Rouge G’s mirrored cap, or when you catch a whiff of its classic rosy lipstick scent (has the same flavor, too).

Glistening, which describes Batifole’s luminous finish when it catches the light. It fades to a chic, semi-matte, berry-colored stain after a meal. Very cool and modern.

Gazing, which is what you’ll find yourself doing whenever you pass a mirror. This shade’s a show-stopper, for sure.

Celebrate good times, c’mon! Today was International Cat Day!

Oooh, cat ladies (and feline enthusiasts), did you do your kitty boss’s bidding today? Wish him or her a happy International Cat Day for me.

International Cat Day, also known as World Cat Day, was founded in 2002 by the International Fund for Animal Welfare and other animal rights groups.

Every day is Cat Day here at the offices of Tabs the Cat Industries, LLC, and we love any and all reasons to celebrate our feline friends. πŸ™‚

Man, I get more cat lady every single day…


It’s only a matter of time before I’m wandering the aisles at Sephora, walking around in fur-covered pajama pants and an oversized t-shirt that says, “Tabby, or not tabby… That is the question.”

Only a matter of time…

Onward to Friday, my love! Are you ready for this?

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    I’m pretty sure I need this! I’m hesitating a little between Madame Batifole and Madame Flirte, but in any case at least one of them will come home with me. I’m such a fan of Rouge G’s!

    Did Tabs get gravy for International Cat Day? We cracked open a can or two here!

    It looks like the perfect lipstick, especially because the packaging is so original! I would wear it with an all-white ensemble with my handbag and shoes on that shade of reddish pink!

    The packaging is insane.. I’m such a sucker for beautiful packaging.

    The color reminds me of Revlon “Cherries in the Snow” but with a bit more berry.

  13. Kim says:

  16. Sujaan says:

    Stunning! You look absolutely stunning! I want the lippie and the blouse. Please oh please tell me where you got that blouse?!?!?!

  17. Look at that packaging! I know some people find this particular packaging from Guerlain rather bulky and inconvenient but I get a little thrill of pleasure every time I touch it!

    • Karen says:

      OH that is awesome! I wonder if they have that in a baseball tee style… NEED IT IN MY LIFE!

      I just gave Tabs a snuggle for you. He’s very upset because he thinks there should be an International Cat Week, not just a day.

      How are you doing?

      • Tiffany says:

        So cute right?! Abbie needs it too, if only they had kids sizes lol! She loves cats. Tabs is totally right about needing a full week!! Doing ok, just trying to survive the last month of pregnancy πŸ™‚

  18. Teri says:

    Gah, I actually love all three of the Rouge G’s in this collection. Madame Batifole looks like an amazing shade on you, Karen!

    I totally forgot about international cat day, eeeek!

    This color reminds me of UD’s catfight (which I’m wearing today!). I need to eventually get my hands on a Rouge G though. The packaging is to die for!

  23. Elle says:

    I love that picture so much with Tabs, beautiful.

    I also have been looking at swatches of that lovely lipstick and your post put me over the edge it is mine tomorrow. Thanks for all you are and all you share!!
