Guerlain Provocative (863) Rouge G de Guerlain Lip Color
Guerlain Provocative (863) Rouge G de Guerlain Lip Color

Guerlain Provocative (863) Rouge G de Guerlain Lip Color ($49.50 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “deep and vibrant pink.” It’s a rich, brightened, medium-dark pink-red with cool, blue undertones and a soft, satiny finish. There wasn’t really any shimmer or pearl, but it wasn’t completely matte. MAC All Fired Up is matte. Urban Decay Catfight is very similar. Chanel Suspense is more muted. Revlon Sorbet is pinker, sheerer. Guerlain Girly is slightly pinker. NARS Jardin des Plantes is shimmery. MAC Impassioned is pinker. Guerlain Gigi is a touch pinker/brighter. Guerlain Gourmandise is a touch lighter and less fuchsia. See comparison swatches.

The color payoff was rich and fully opaque in nearly a single stroke. It has a soft, lightly creamy consistency that allows the color to glide on evenly and smoothly. It wore well for six and a half hours, and it was nicely hydrating the entire time I wore it. Everything about the formula and color is gorgeous–there’s no flaw to be found–but it is a dupable color, and not just dupable in general, but two past Rouge Gs (Gigi and Girly) are very, very similar. Both of those were limited edition, so if you’ve been looking for either of those, then you’re in luck.

  1. Looks gorgeous but a bit too bright for me and that plus the price make this one I’ll pass on, although I do love it. It’s funny that both Givenchy and Chanel see “affordable” compared to this ($49.50 vs $34!)

  2. I love this! How do you manage to make every lipstick shade look good on you, Christine? :)

  3. Absolutely love the look of this shade. Works really well with your skin tone Christine xo

  4. Whoaaa what a beauty! I do think I already own a couple of very similar shades though, so I might be able to resist ;)

  5. Omg. This lipstick is too beautiful!

  6. Love this on you! Completely reminds me of UD catfight which I picked up a number of months ago. Lots of dupes so no need to spring for this.

    First I was surprised- – a flawless lipstick!! Then I see…for that price it’d better be. It’s probably marked up to the sky over here :(

  8. Rachel

    Gorgeous! I’ve never tried this brand before and I know I should because you love it! On another subject, I need a bright pink/fuschia lipliner, any recommendations? What is your favorite lipliner in general? (Drugstore or high end) Thanks!

    Not to be inappropriate, but does this packaging remind anyone else of a sex toy?

    Beautiful lipstick though.

    Out of the six rouge g’s I’ve got, girly and Gigi are two, I still want this!

  11. The packaging totally stole the show for me.. and the shade is like cherry on the cake…
    DO you think it is somewhere close to Revlon Love That Pink??

  12. Oh, that is absolutely gorgeous.

  13. I knew you’d rock this color, I just knew it! :-)

  14. Dominique

    The Rouge G is very heavy, is this LE one heavy too Christine ? I love the regular packaging but this one looks cheap…. :(

  15. beck

    Christine how does it compare to MAC Love Goddess
    from Marilyn’s collec? Thank you :)

  16. Judith

    Hi Christine! The color looks great on you. I love it! Where can we purchase it? Does Sephora have it yet?

  17. Avatar of Mirian Vermeulen mirian

    Both Gigi and Girly are permanent colors, not limited edition!

  18. This is sooo pretty. Sadly, I have too many reds/corals/pinks :(
    Will have to finish up at least 4 to treat me self with this. :P Hate limited editions!!!

  19. Absolutely DELICIOUS on you … if this sounds new :D coz am tired ( honestly , I am not tired but you may be :D :D ) of repeating “stunning ” , “gorgeous” , ” beautiful ” , “outstanding” …. how perfect every lipstick looks on you so unbelievable yaa

    i am going to pick this no matter what but i want to ask you one thing dear
    I have GIRLY and i might pick GIGI too … mostly you rate A + for rouge g’s but GIGI is B ….

    you think i should skip GIGI if i want to buy this in any case ? i mean the pleasure of owning LE … ( gigi and girly are permanent here in INDIA and are also avlb. on SEPHORA

    i dont know and want to save some bucks :( :(

    you know what , in INDIA we pay more or less around $ 33 ( example – galia , gypsy , greta , grenade ) to $ 48 ( example – girly , garconne , gigolo , genna ) for all shades …. and $ 56 for recently launched LE shades … (madame collection )
    and I calculated with conversion of 60/- INR for 1 $

    pls dont hate me for sharing this here :( :( :(

    • Thank you as always, Rashmi!! :)

      How come India has different pricing for LE vs. permanent? That’s kind of awesome, lol!

      • Yeah quite weird but its plus sometimes …
        I paid more or less dollar 40 for turondot palette … isnt it great :) and m not including taxes… in usa u have plus tax n in india the prices i shared are final :)

        M quite happy with pricing at this point of time …. dollar is in all its glory you know :)

        cant take my eyes off …. the color looks pretty every time

        • That’s awesome! I begrudge nobody for paying less in their country – especially when too often brands are way more expensive in other countries than here!

          Yes, I looked at the exchange rate for $ to Euro and pounds, and I almost had a heart attack!

  20. Ughh. I’m going to need to stop following you! So many pretty (and expensive D:) things that I want! Haha. Juuust kidding, I can’t not read your blog. I’ll just have a super long Christmas list this year!

  21. I absolutely love this shade and the packaging is so unique. I think this is a must buy for me!

  22. Avatar of Celine Celine

    I found this lipstick on another blog, and thought its such a unique pink. I’m all about pink everything, so I knew I had to get this but the price on this one is quite steep. I’ve been wanting to dip into the new Urban Decay lipsticks, so I came on here to find a dupe for it. Thanks so much!

    I’ve been looking for a good dupe for Madame Batifole (which unfortunately sold out before I could get my hands on it) and a woman at the Guerlain counter told me that this would be extremely similar. What do you think? :)
