Guerlain Orgueil Rouge G L'Extrait
Guerlain Orgueil Rouge G L’Extrait

A Stunning Berry That Wears All Day

Guerlain Orgueil Rouge G L’Extrait ($48.00 for 0.20 oz.) is described as a “plum.” What a pedestrian description! This shade is so much more complex. It’s a rich, deepened scarlet red with ruby red micro-shimmer. There’s just a hint of berry in the overall color, especially from afar. While it is not a dupe, it’s a cooler-toned, more berry-hued version of Chanel Dragon. MAC Good to Be Bad is browner and has no shimmer. MAC What a Joy! is more berry-hued. Guerlain Gigolo is deeper, darker, but it is rather close.

The way Rouge G L’Extrait feels on the lips is hard to describe; it’s not quite a full-on second-skin feel, which I always think of as a lip color that clings, almost like cling wrap. This has more movement in a way; you can press your lips together and you don’t feel them sticking together. Orgueil wore for eight hours and was still wearable for another hour or so. It can be reapplied, because it doesn’t flake off or wear away unevenly like some other long-wearing formulas can. This formula has more transfer than those, so there are trade-offs. I can wear it for eight hours, and my lips aren’t dry at all. The color is very pigmented, and a little goes a long way.

Intensely pigmented, ultra long-wearing, and there's no flaking of color despite it having a long-wearing, almost-second-skin texture, this is a great lip color formula for someone who wants their lip color to be on all day long.

    Merry Christmas to meeeee! this is heavenly…and it will be mine.

    I’m glad you also thought it was similar to Guerlain Gigolo. I actually like that fact because it gives the consumer a liquid or stick option to achieve approximately the same look. I do find that it looks slightly vampier in real life versus studio lighting though.

  3. Kathrina

    *thud* What a breathtaking shade! I must have it. Must. Now. Immediately. I’m off, thank you very much! ;)

  4. What a gorgeous product!! This is not really my color, but I’ll take a look at the other shades :)

  5. Carrie

    Wow. That is a stunning color and looks absolutely amazing on you!

  6. My favourite Fall 2012 product! Worth the hype!

    This is a nice shade. I bought a bright orange/coral shade awhile ago, but it’s not for me. I found the formula really drying on my lips. I kept it, though and I plan to wear it only when I don’t need to have it on for a long time.

  8. Kym

    It gawwwwwgeoouuuuuuusssss!

    So pretty on you!

    Dammit, it looks amazing. I am SO glad it is not limited edition, because I won’t have to cave in right now, but this is so going to be mine at one point or an another in the future.

    This colour is GORGEOUS! Holy cow is that ever pretty. So complex too. No way I can afford it though. *sigh*

    You look stunning in it, Christine. And your full-face makeup is amazing too!

  11. Avatar of Kimberly Kimberly

    OH MY GOODNESS! (oops! I was on caps lock! My bad!) This is gorgeous! Christine! You already tempted me to buy another shade (Gourmandise) this stuff is gonna break my poor college freshman wallet! But there’s just so much awesome I can’t stay away!

  12. Amazing! I love the micro-shimmer in it. The colour looks stunning and I think this packaging is the most luxurious I’ve ever seen.

  13. Avatar of rebecca blueraccoon

    I just can’t decide on this one. I think with my coloring I could pull it off, but I’m not sure I have the confidence to wear it out! But it is gorgeous…

  14. Oh my god, what a gorgeous (not-quite-)red. The formula & colour of this one sound absolutely perfect for fall/winter!

  15. Amanda

    Looks amazing on you, doubt it would look half as good on me!

  16. AliceWray

    Oh my god! I want this so much, even if I’d never have the courage to wear it. Small mouth + big face + dark lipstick = weird 18th century opera face.

  17. OMG!! This is sooo amazing! Too bad we don’t have that brand here! :(

  18. This color is STUNNING! If only I could justify spending $48 USD on LIPGLOSS :(

  19. Tigress

    That is perfection.

  20. Nicole Danielle

    This is probably going to be my first Guerlain purchase. Wow, that’s gorgeous.

  21. Avatar of Veronica Veronica

    This is so stunning. <3 Oh, this is definitely going on the to-buy list.

  22. Vivian

    :O LOOOOVE!

  23. Cynthia

    This is so pretty, but I absolutely hate lip products that I have to dip back in like this and lip gloss. I can’t get past the germ factor.

  24. Lauren

    I think my heart just stopped – that is ridiculously gorgeous!

  25. Avatar of Terri Terri

    Pedestrian description is right; what an amazingly gorgeous color!!!

  26. Avatar of Angela Angela

    This looks gorgeous on you!I never thought I would want to spend so much on a lip product,but this sounds fantastic!

  27. This is gorgeous on you! You should wear it on your wedding day!!

  28. Maebee

    I can’t believe how stunning this is on you. Perfect fall/winter colour.

  29. Avatar of Cat Cat G

    That’s like… perfection.

  30. Avatar of Audrey Audrey

    Will you be reviewing any more of these? I’d love to see some more swatches and pics of them on your lips. The photos of this product absolutely have blown me away, but I know this isn’t a shade for me. I would LOVE to see more reviews!

  31. AJ

    Which do you prefer in terms of formula this or Chanel rouge allure laque?

  32. I have this shade and I must tell I love, love, love it!!!! It just looks wonderful.

    I’m considering getting another one, but I’d love a lighter shade… either Paresse or Avarice, but I can’t decide which one :s

  33. Shivani

    What is your favourite/what are your favourites (out of the Rouge G L’Extrait collection)?

  34. D

    Bought both Orgeuil and Avarice! My ├╝ber-dry lips are loving the L’extrait formula :)

    Gorgeous!
