ZOMG! You could probably buy several baguettes, a couple of glasses of fancy red wine and maybe even a wheel of high-quality stinky cheese for the price of one tube of Guerlainâ€™s new Rouge G in GarÃ§onne ($47), but DAYUM!, itâ€™s a helluva red.
One layer of this vibrant, pigmented true red, one of three new Rouge G shades for fall, brightens my mood as it brightens my lips.
Reds can be notoriously difficult to apply, but GarÃ§onne’s unusually easy to handle, even straight from the tube without a lip brush or liner. I think it might be due to its creamy finish and super soft texture.
The Guerlain Rouge G’s are my current favorite long-wearing luxury lipsticks, with all-day color that even lasts through meals and drinks. Their hydrating formula also keeps my lips soft and smooth.
GarÃ§onne is quite rude to wallets, but it’s an instant, timeless classic I suspect we’ll be seeing for years to come.
AVAILABILITY: Coming this August to Guerlain counters
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: A (a classic, despite the price)
If I were single and looking for love on the Internetâ€¦
…I’d totally be this woman.
I also love cats, AND I love to run!
I’m so not kidding.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. I hope you had a great afternoon. I’m just chillin’ at home tonight. No big fireworks for me. Right now I’m getting ready to have a mango bar (or two) and watch a movie from the couch. Weekend starts in three, two, one…
