Guerlain Gigi Rouge G Lipstick
Guerlain Gigi Rouge G Lipstick

Guerlain Gigi (68) Rouge G Lipstick ($46.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a new-for-fall shade of neon fuchsia pink with a slightly glossy sheen but nearly imperceptible shimmer. This is MEGA-WATT bright, I swear! Despite its brightness, it’s actually a little less opaque than the majority of Rouge G lipsticks, which is odd. It does remind me of MAC Full Fuchsia Lipstick, which is a PRO shade, but it’s a lot frostier (and thus more reflective). Gigi seems to have less blue in its base, too, and this would make it a touch more flattering on warmer skin tones than Full Fuchsia. I am definitely surprised to see such a bright shade launched by Guerlain, and even more since it’s part of their fall launch!

  2. Camila

    Summer feelings *-*

    But I would like to see something of the Givenchy Blooming Collection, like the Le Vernis Blooming Pink and the lipsticks (blooming peach and blooming abricot)

    I swatched this and I really liked it! My lips are more pigmented so colours always look darker on me than you. Like you said not sure I would spent so much on a lipstick I wouldn’t get that much wear out of.

  4. Rosamaria

    Beautiful Color… Christine, do you have a favorite Rouge G color?

  5. Bree

    I Love It…it looks great on. The price is insane….Lol…are your pictures taken with flash? Christine will you be reviewing or have reviewed Make Up For Ever Artist Intense Lipsticks? Thanks.

  6. Ashley

    Reminds me so much more of a spring color because of the actual hue. Sorry.

  7. WOW, such an electric look! You should`ve worn it out just to see the looks you`d yet =D. It`s a beautiful color but not for me! I was also wondering Christine, do you have the Rouge G in #10 Gaia? Thanks so much!

  8. my retinas are still ringing, gee this is a BRIGHT shade ! But I love it. I’m all about pinks, especially this kind of pink. Plus I love the Guerlain Rouge G, such a nice texture and a lovely packaging. I might just go to town and see if I can get it !!

  9. I really like this and have been meaning to get it, but I’m still waiting for it to appear on eBay (you know me!). :)

  10. o0oCarinao0o

    It looks so beautiful. I love colors like that so bright and pretty. <3

    But I have no idea how to wear them…How would you wear a color so bright?

  11. roberta

    What are you wearing on your eyes? It’s gorgeous!

  14. Super pretty, but not $46 bucks worth of pretty. Ha ha

  15. DawnC

    I bought this as soon as it was released. When I wore it the first time, I thought “Now this is an HG hot pink!” Love it! Now I have to get Gwen too.

  16. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Heather Heather

    I want this so bad, but $46 is a bit steep for me to justify for a lipstick…but it sure looks gorgeous.

  17. Vanessa Sales

    I really love the color but it is definitely not something i’d spend that much money on becuase it is not something i could wear often.

  18. this is a must own for me lol

  19. Leila

    Oh…this color makes you very fresh and sexy! I wish I can have it…

  20. Bernice

    Lovely lovely colour and great review :D

  21. Diana

    What eyeliner are you wearing on your lower lash-line? Its gorgeous!

  22. Love this color but I just can’t stomach the price!

  23. Cameron

    You look gorgeous with this color Christine! :)

  24. Ashley D.

    Oh wow, it looks beautiful I must have this.

  25. Eileen

    These deep pinks look stunning on you! I like it!

  26. Mia

    Hot pink…I think I’m loving it…looks really like fun 8D

    And it seems quite warm for a neon shade.

  27. margo

    just beautiful on you-

  28. Miss Silver

    It looks gooooorgeous with your skin tone!! I don’t think I can wear that bright pink, I’m olive, and for some reason, anything bright just looks odd on me.

  29. Janet

    Gorgeous! But not really for me…
    And what’s with all these bright colors (especially pink) for fall? I’m not complaining, just wondering…

  30. Jenn

    I love this color I just bought it :-) Guerlain Rouge G is the BEST!!

  31. This is a great color! I love to wear shockingly bright lipsticks with just foundation, powder, and mascara.

  32. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Cathy Cathy

    Not something I would wear but it looks amazing on you,like everything else…you’d be a great makeup model,I swear!!

  33. Jessica

    your lashes look amazing in that picture!

  34. How different is it from Giulette 63?

  35. Alison

    The texture and finish is gorgeous, but I’d never wear the shade…

  36. Tori

    The colour does differ according to skin tone. I am Chinese and pretty fair with naturally pigmented lips and this shade actually looks red on me when I first apply. If I use Gigi by itself, it fades to fuschia in under an hour but if paired with a red lip gloss, it’s actually the best blue red I’ve found. It’s a very pretty red that brightens my face and doesn’t make me look like a clown. It’s apparently been quite popular in Asia as my local makeup counter has sold out of it.

    I’ve found that while this blog is a good platform for me to find new colours on, Christine’s darker skin tone means that colours that generally look beautiful on her look vampish on me. Case in point: Scarlett Empress. I was soooo in love with that colour after seeing how it looked on her but after googling the colour, I realised that it was that awful too-dark red I’d immediately put out of my mind when the Shanghai Express collection came out.

    So, the point of this post is that you should go down to your makeup counter and try this colour on before leaving it. I do apologise if this post was long and rambling but I really do adore this shade and just had to endorse it.

    This is my latest Guerlain purchase and the color is gorgeous! On my lips the shade sort of reminds me of Chanel Rouge Coco in Cambon, but a tad lighter and softer.

    I hate to tell u but this is the most wonderful and flattering color I’ve seen u in yet. It may be bright but it’s killer on you.
    Wear it and don’t be intimidated.
