Guerlain Gigolo (70) Rouge G Lipstick

Guerlain Gigolo Rouge G Lipstick ($47.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “pigment rich plum with a terrybly couture style.” It’s more of a berry-red on me than a plum with plum and ruby micro-shimmer. NYX Violet Ray and Make Up For Evere #13 are similar in color but has a frostier finish. YSL Forbidden Burgundy is less red. MAC Rebel is has a lot less red and more of a berry look.

The color coverage is nearly opaque with a really glossy finish. I bought this last week (along with Girly, which will be reviewed soon), and it’s a shade I keep wanting to re-wear. It’s rich and dark–perfect for fall–but the red brightens the color (and makes my teeth appear whiter because it is a cooler-toned color).

Guerlain’s Rouge G formula is one of my favorites, because of the excellent color payoff but even better texture and feel. They are comfortable to wear, long-wearing (I get six hours of great wear with Gigolo and then about 80% of color remains after eight hours plus a meal), and moisturizing. My lips sing a little when I glide on a Rouge G after swatching five other lipsticks. They are violet-scented (but not too heavily–less so than some of their powders) and come in heavy, silver metal cases with a flip out mirror.

I do feel you pay a chunk of change for the packaging, which while decadent, does hold fingerprints, doesn’t store as easily, and the small text of the shade on the back is hard to read. I really hope they sell refills someday.
