Guerlain Girly (71) Rouge G Lipstick

Guerlain Girly Rouge G Lipstick ($47.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “pink.” There is more fancy marketing-speak than color description in the press release. It’s pink–oh, yeah–it’s a vibrant, nearly glowing, pink-red.  It has more of a cream finish with opaque color coverage and a glossy shine. It is redder than Guerlain Champs-Elysees but darker than OCC Queen. It’s a touch darker compared to Estee Lauder Wild Violet, which also has shimmer.

This is one of my favorite lipstick formulas, and I’m excited whenever they release new shades (my wallet less so!), so I had to pick this one up as soon as they launched online. The shades they’ve been putting out recently have had really lush finishes to them–they make lips look so smooth. Girly was everything Gigolo is/was, so I’m repeating what I wrote in that review here: 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 am able to get six hours of great wear with Girly and about 80% of color remains after eight hours plus a meal), and moisturizing. 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.

  1. Oh man that’s gorgeous! I really want it but $47 is hard to swallow for a bright color I won’t wear often :X. If it was a Rouge Automatique I would have it already though haha.

  2. Taylor

    I loooooooveeee it! I could actually see myself shelling out the $$ for that color.

  3. Sexy Sadie


  4. Erica

    Gourgeous, but isn’t it similat to “Gigi” Rouge G?

  5. Such a beautiful color! I normally don’t tend to splurge, but I might have to pick this up!

  6. Becca

    This is gorgeous – just the kind of pink I love…beautiful on you.

  7. Oh my God! That’s a ‘hot’ shade and you look fab! :)

  8. Ashley

    Christine- I think you accidentally posted your review for Gigolo in place of the one for Girly :) Gorgeous color though!

    • This is the right review :) It’s for Girly – which is a pink-red, as described above, along with the possible dupes for Girly (totally different from Gigolo!). The formula is the same Gigolo, as they’re both Rouge Gs, and they’re both excellent, so I did not rewrite the exact same descriptions when it came to packaging, formula, etc.

  9. Rebecca

    How does the color compare to Guerlain’s Rouge Automatique in Shalimar (you reviewed that a month or so ago)?

  10. Mia

    Oh, love the colour! Looks great on you.
    I just wish they would have a less bulky and heavy packaging.

  11. OMG I definitely want it. It is just my kind of pink-

  12. Ashley Sarah

    The color is absolutely gorgeous. If I could afford it I would definitely be buying it.

  13. What a beautiful color! It looks so good on you, too!

  14. Michelle

    Awe, it’s just soo pretty. That’s my second favorite color of all time, and one of my favorite makeup colors; it’s too bad there aren’t any legitimate drugstore dupes- oh well.

  15. Constanze

    Awesome colour ♥ !

  16. Evelyn

    At first I thought I was going to be able to pass these up, but darn it! Gigolo and this one look so pretty!

  17. Hend

    Very beautiful !,I can see myself wearing in holidays season .. It looks very elegant on you !

  18. This formula looks to die for. It makes your lips look incredible, Christine! It is somehow super-pigmented but not dry or thick.

  19. It is gorgeous! The Rouge G formula is my favorite lipstick formula ever, so sad it’s so stupidly expensive!! But I feel like I could let myself be tempted and might just try it next time I’m at the mall :)

  20. Lena Vaz

    Pricey, but pretty!

  21. Nicola

    Stunning shade and it looks gorgeous on you, Christine. It definitely makes your lips look great and it seems like the finishes of the recent shades are remarkably good. I compared this with gigi in your swatch gallery (was the most similar shade that came to mind) and while Gigi looks great, this just looks so much better!

    Also wholeheartedly agree with what you said about sometimes it being better to have a well edited collection of products you love and will use than many less satisfying shades. At least that’s what I’m telling myself as I love the Rouge G formula, but my god they’re expensive! :p

  22. Tricia

    …and that was the sound of my tears falling as I saw the photos.

    :'( This is gorgeous!!!

  23. Noir

    This color is to die for!

  24. Maya

    The perfect bright pink!

  25. Russel

    WOOW! this color is so amazing! Guerlain seems to make lipsticks in colors I really gravitate towards, too bad the price is way to high for me. Looks absolutely gorgeous on you Christine

  26. Jenny

    Is this similar to MAC Impassioned?

  27. K

    Ah! Such an aptly named shade. It’s SO rich and vibrant. Beautiful on you, Christine.

  28. M

    GORGEOUS! But you know something, Christine? In my very humble opinion, nothing and absolutely NOTHING compares to Giulette. 😀

  29. I don’t usually like pinks, but this is pretty! I’d probably get Queen instead if I really wanted it.

  30. Josiane

    If I had to pick one, it would be this one!

  31. Stephanie

    This is super pretty, but I don’t think I could ever blow $47 on a single lipstick!

  32. Lerina

    This looks beautiful on you!

  33. Nora

    Hi Christine, this shade looks fab on you! PLease can you advise, how do you manage to make lip colour last through a meal? I’ve tried all sorts of formulas, but not even MUFE Aqua Lip does that for me! thxs!

  34. Veronica

    I get the feeling that when I get the urge to do a serious makeup splurge, I’m going to grab one of these. I love lipstick, but it takes a lot of trial and error for me to find shades I really love because my skin dries easily, especially my lips. Sometimes good quality is just worth the price tag. :)

    Thanks for covering such a wide range of products! It makes the shopping so much easier.

  35. artemis

    wooooow, love it <3


    Looks great on you!

  37. Oh that is GORGEOUS!!

  38. Abby

    I just picked up this color! I love it SO MUCH!!! However, I was wondering if you know of a lip pencil/liner that would match this color?

  39. mmgirl

    That color is so pretty!

  40. Italia

    One of my all-time faves that you’ve ever modeled! You look GORGEOUS! Possibly my fave of your looks… and yes… I love this lipstick!

  41. Irene

    Oh wow this looks so amazing!!! I’m thinking about ordering it online ( I can’t buy Guerlain in any shops in the town I live, such a shame) but I already own Chanel l’exuberante (rouge allure velvet 37).
    Besides from the obvious difference in finish ( l’exuberante has a matte finish) are the colors very similar?
    I’m a bit torn about wether to buy it if it is too similar color wise, because then I guess I can achieve the same result by layering a gloss. I hope their not too similar because Girly Rouge looks absolutely beautiful on you!

  42. Nicole

    This was my first Rouge G purchase and definitely won’t be the last. I never would have learned about this fantastic line of lipstick with you! Garconne and Gigolo are next on the list :)
