Guerlain Grenade (65) Rouge G Lipstick

Guerlain Grenade Rouge G Lipstick

The first dupe I could think of was Dior Raspberry Serum de Rouge, which is more muted and less pink, but I think it may be close enough for those wanting a more palatable price tag.  Chanel Rouge Orage Rouge Coco is also similar but pulls almost coral in comparison.

Rouge Gs are pricey, mostly due to the fancy packaging, which includes a heavy metal case, with a top that slides off and flips open to reveal a mirror. Though I’ve heard about refills “coming soon,” I’ve yet to see them come through (it would be nice!). The lipstick formula is one of my favorites–so soft and smooth, rich in color, moisturizing on its own, and lasts four to six hours (lighter shades closer to four, darker shades closer to six). They do have a fruit-floral scent (but no taste), which is a bit heavy-handed, so for those who are more sensitive to scents, you may want to see if it is one you like first.

Make Up For Ever #44 Rouge Artist Intense Lipstick

Make Up For Ever #44 Rouge Artist Intense Lipstick

The Rouge Artist Intense formula is typically opaque, and while it’s not a moisturizing lipstick, it’s not a drying one either, though it does not feel creamy against the lips (it may take a little more pressure to apply than your average lipstick). With lighter shades, I see four hours of wear, but with richer or darker shades like #44, I get as much as six.

If you want to know more about how products are evaluated, read out Rating System FAQ! :)

RECOMMENDATION: For cooler and warmer skin tone, this is a nice shade of red that’s bright without being traffic-stopping.
