The Spring Season: Guerlain Gardenia Rouge G Lipstick

Guerlain Gardenia Rouge G Lipstick ($45.00) is a softened pinky-beige with a light, glossy finish and nearly no distinguishable shimmer. At first, I thought Gardenia was similar to Cle de Peau #103 Extra Silky Lipstick, but this is significantly warmer and brighter. I think maybe it was just that very creamy, solid color with a glossy sheen that made me connect the two. Of course, at $45, it wouldn’t have been the more affordable option! 😉 Rouge Gs are always outstanding in their color pigmentation–very near full coverage in most instances, and the feel of these is amazing. It’s a comfortable lipstick that goes on smooth, creamy, and keeps lips moisturized while its worn. I get four to six hours with these, depending on the shade (lighter ones tend to fade faster).

Is this the right peachy nude lipstick for you? Would you wear it?

Temptalia Asks You


If you had to throw away one item from your beauty stash, what would it be?C’mon, only one!

Temptalia's Answer.

Oh, that’s easy for me, LOL. I’d toss a foundation that I didn’t wear any more. I know I’ve got at least a few hanging around.

Thanks to Samantha for this question!
