Guerlain Rouge G de Brilliant Lipstick Review, Swatches, Photos: Betsy, Bianca, Blondie

Rouge G de Brilliant ($46.00 each) launched earlier this spring with ten shades (all permanent). Like the original Rouge G line-up, there is a theme–all of the names begin with a B. Brilliants different from the traditional Rouge G formula, because they are sheerer with more shimmer and a glossier finish. These are touted as a more natural lipstick. It feels lighter than Rouge Gs, but it looks considerably lighter on lips as well. These have a kind of “wet” look to them, so you may not need a gloss to give you that glossy sheen.

Guerlain Rouge Broderie (#321) Kiss Kiss Strass Lip Color

Kiss Kiss Strass comes in typical Guerlain packaging, except it comes in silver casing rather than the gold casing of Kiss Kiss Strass. The lipstick still has the traditional sweetened rosy scent of Guerlain lip products, and it’s not quite as subtle as the Rouge G line, though not as heavy as the Kiss Kiss range either. The pricing is typical to Guerlain lip products, which doesn’t make them the most affordable brand if you’re on the hunt for a lipstick! However, Guerlain does exceptional lip color, both from the shades to the quality and feel of their formulas.
