Guerlain Rose Grenat (864) Rouge G Lipstick

This summer, Guerlain introduces new shades of Rouge G. Five shades are being added to the permanent range, and there are two limited edition shades–both featured in detail below–that come in specially-colored lacquered cases. They’ll be available at the retailers Guerlain is sold, and right now, only Saks seems to have the new shades available online. Rouge G is a long-time favorite for me, because of the long-wear, rich color payoff, and hydrating, comfortable formula.

Guerlain Rose Grenat (864) Rouge G Lipstick ($54.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “velvety red-pink.” It’s a vibrant, medium-dark fuchsia-pink with subtle cool undertones. At times, it almost looks warm-toned, but it is strongly pink-based, so it is definitely cooler overall. It had rich, intense color coverage, and the color wore well for six and a half hours and left behind a stain. YSL Rose Asarine (34) (P, $34.00) is warmer. Revlon Vivacious (120) (P, $8.99) is lighter. MAC Pleasure Bomb (LE, $16.00) is matte. Guerlain Provocative (863) (LE, $49.50) is warmer, redder. Urban Decay Catfight (P, $22.00) is warmer. MAC Impassioned (P, $16.00) is lighter, matte. Guerlain Gigi (P, $49.50) is very similar. Guerlain Champs-Elysees (P, $35.00) is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Guerlain Rose Glace (866) Rouge G Lipstick ($54.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “nude, barely there pink.” It’s a light, milky pink with white and pale pink shimmer. It had semi-sheer color coverage that seemed to lighten the natural lip color and added quite a bit of shimmer. I think the formula of this shade felt more like the Rouge G Brilliant, between the glossiness, shimmer, and shine, but as the classic Rouge G, I think it misses on what makes Rouge G special–the long-wear, color coverage, and smooth texture. There was slight, noticeable texture from the shimmer, which I wasn’t in love with. The color wore well for three hours, which is longer than average when it comes to a shade as light as this (with this level of coverage). Guerlain Rose Innocent (LE, $49.50) has a stronger pink color. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
