Cooking with K-Dawg and T-Money!


Hi, everyone, and welcome to Cooking With K-Dawg and T-Money, the number one cooking show on TTCTV (Tabs the Cat TV), where we teach you absolutely nothing about food.


That’s right! — not a damned thing. 🙂

Hungry for homemade pasta? Salivating over sushi? Craving killer creppes? GURL, you won’t hear about any of that stuff here.

That’s because we dish about makeup, and today we’re cooking up delicious looks for lips with some new products from Guerlain.

Shoo’, I couldn’t cook my way out of a paper bag, and my cat co-host Tabs lacks opposable thumbs, so he’s no cordon bleu chef, either.

My bad…

Oh! — I’ve just been corrected by my producer. Apparently, I should have referred to my kitty co-host as, “Internationally renowned plus-size kitty supermodel, hip-hop mogul and founding member of Kitty Mensa Tabs the Cat.”

My bad.

Let’s get started. Step one: prepping our ingredients. 🙂

It’s important to use the freshest ingredients, so today we’ll be working with a new crop of Rouge G Lipsticks ($51 each).

Aren’t they to-die-for!? In obscure metaphorical terms, if a lipstick were like eating an entire cheesecake all by yourself in one sitting, that lipstick would be a Rouge G. With a wide range of colors and coverages from sheer to full, plus a creamy, mega moisturizing formula, they’re pure indulgence (but calorie-free, WOOT!).

Next month Guerlain adds five new shades to their already extensive permanent line…

  • 15 Galiane, a nude beige
  • 16 Gaetane, a deep brown
  • 77 Geraldine, a luminous pink
  • 78 Gladys, a vibrant fuchsia
  • 48 Geneva, an orange

And two new limited-edition lippies in special lacquered packaging…

  • 864 Rose Grenat, a velvety reddish pink
  • 866 Rose Glace, a nude pink

On with the cooking! And don’t you worry about a thing, babe. Even if you can’t make toast or boil water, you can handle this.

All we’re gonna do is pick a handful of our favorite shades from the new batch. I’m going with pink 77 Geraldine, orange 48 Geneva, reddish pink 864 Rose Grenat and nude pink 866 Rose Glace.

Now, place them in front of you on your countertop. Notice how they rest on their sides? They were designed that way by French jeweler Lorenz Baumer, who’s also worked with Cartier, Gucci and Hermes. Lorenz got the idea for the shape from gold bars. Then he rounded the edges to make them more feminine.

Considering that these are $51 each and quite heavy, it was almost foretelling that the packaging was inspired by gold bars.

But I like that they have some heft to ’em. I think it makes them feel extra fancy and hello! — useful during the eventual zombie apocalypse. When your significant other makes a fuss about you bringing them on the road, you can tell him or her to “Step back, yo! I’m going to use them as a weapon,” and then place them inside a pillowcase and swing them around like a mace!

Oops, my producer is telling me to change the subject, so…where were we?

Oh, yes! Guerlain…

Now, let’s open one of them and admire ourselves in the mirror hidden inside the cap.

Mirror, mirror…

Apply one layer to your lips.

Just one! That’s all you’ll need, as the Rouge G’s are smoother than smooth, and you shouldn’t have any issues with patchiness or uneven color.

You could leave it on for a while if you’d like. It should last from 2-5 hours and fade slowly, depending on the intensity of the color.

And that just about does it for this week’s episode of Cooking With K-Dawg and T-Money! Don’t forget to set your Tivo for next week’s show. See you then. 🙂

    The packaging is definitely something, but I feel like it’s possible to get close-to similar results with other lipsticks. Definitely gorgeous though!

    TTCTV! Best. Channel. Evah.

    I am digging Geneva and Geraldine!

    • Karen says:

      Geraldine would be a beautiful everyday color, don’t ya think? P.S. Tabs wants me to tell you that he has a sea otter pose!

      • musical says:

        Yup-a sweet everyday color! Rose Grenat looks so “yummy”, really!

        Tabs is so cool ;). Tabby in sea-otter pose = purrfect moment to kiss that fluffy belleh!

    Rose Grenat is beautiful (love the LE colorful packaging!) and I’ve been looking for a reddish pink lately. How would you compare it to Nars Luxembourg (that I’ve been eyeing and is the kind of shade I’m looking for)?

    I’m loving that hot pink lacquered case soooooo much! And the colour is even better than I’d thought it would be, win win! All the shades are really lovely, I could easily buy all of them. I’m not that much into the palest sheer colour but it looks fun for layering. Great new colours!

  12. Sunny says:

    Whoaaa Rose Grenat instantly goes on my wish list! So glad they’re adding more shades to the line-up! Rouge G is one of my favorite formulas around! It’s funny to see so many new formulas from different companies, but this not-so-new baby still beats many of them hands down!

    Those look so moisturizing!! Beautiful.

  14. Fran says:

    These look beautiful, and Geraldine might be my perfect medium pink… or might be just a shade too light. Rose Grenat is just gorgeous and my kind of shade. They all look lovely on you, Karen! The price point keeps me away, though 🙁

  15. Lena says:

    what, they’re $51 each now? i don’t think i’ll be buying anymore, even the four i have was from a sale. i wonder why guerlain didn’t follow through with making refills for these??

    • Majick says:

      Guerlain never had any intention of making refills for these. They told me when I called to ask about refills that, “Guerlain was a LUXURY brand.” She even stressed the word luxury. Really? and oh so very green for our planet – but this mentallity explains a lot.

      I have one (from a gift card/F&F sale long ago) that is engraved with the word Glamorous and contains the color Geisha. So yeah, when it’s done, I’ll just toss it into a landfill somewhere…ugh.

      I do not think they are worth a $51 price tag. They are not airport friendly (just a note). But the main problem I have with these is they expect you to throw them out when finished and metal doesn’t decomp all that well… KWIM?

      Sorry but I’m feeling a bit “Barfy Von Schnauzer” today and everything is ticking me off.

      If you can afford these, enjoy them. Too bad they cannot be recycled. Luxury is killing the planet. (snark-a-doo, again I apologize but I’m not deleting this. for once)

  16. CKG says:

    Geneva and Geraldine look lovely!
    I don’t care for the packaging though. I like the Automatiques more, somehow. And $51. is so pricey… maybe for Christmas!

  17. Fancie says:

    Omg these are beautiful!! I’ve yet to try a Guerlain lipstick but Rose Grenat may be my first. It’s pricey but I must have it!

  18. Sylirael says:

    Rose Grenat is STUNNING 😀 I love it, and the special packaging! Rose Glace is also really pretty, but maybe not worth the Guerlain price tag 😉

    Jeez, that LE packaging is way too enticing…

    Where did you get that apron? It’s super cute!

  20. Majick says:

    I really enjoyed this post. ANYthing with Tabs LOL. These are all very pretty colors but I cannot get behing the lack of refills. JUST NOT GREEN ENOUGH FOR THE PLANET!

    • Majick says:

      Oh dear, now I have to qualify because not too many of my lippies are refillable (GO HOURGLASS!)

      I realize that I still produce garbage but I really thought when I paid so much for an engraved lippie that I would at least be able to enjoy it for a long time.

  21. Rose grenat is fab.. though I thought Orange wud be best but its a little sheer..
    Anyways I love ur idea of Makeup cooking. which made this lipstick post more fun.. 😀 😀
