Guerlain Beatrix Rouge G de Brilliant Lipstick

Guerlain Beatrix Rouge G Brilliant Lipstick

The Rouge G Brilliant formula is like a lipstick and lip gloss hybrid in the way it looks and feels; it holds on and wears like a lipstick (three to five hours) but has the shininess of a lip gloss. It’s also moisturizing and doesn’t emphasize lip lines. Like the Rouge G lineup, though, these have a rosy-fruity scent to them.

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

RECOMMENDATION: It’s a nice shade that’s very flattering across both cool and warm skin tones.  It’s not necessarily the most unique color available, but Beatrix is one you could wear everyday.

Givenchy Spring 2011 Collection: Naivement Couture

Givenchy Spring 2011 Collection: Naivement Couture

If the world’s first woman were to be born today in the primeval garden, she would no doubt have a different vision of paradise. Nature would be tamed, its energy restrained, creating an ambiance in which she would more likely cut down the Tree of Knowledge than water it. But springtime always manages to awaken desires and dispel gloomy ideas. The impulse to seek gratification is driven by a sixth sense, making us eager for any and all sorts of sensations. A breath of pure air to be discovered or devised. The Must-Have, Blush Gelée, is a rich elixir of youth, illuminating a self-assured candour with fresh energy. NAÏVEMENT COUTURE (“naively couture”) is an autosuggestion of happiness.

Introducing: Makeup Recommendations


Introducing: Makeup Recommendations

We have all found at least a few items we absolutely love and reach for often because they just suit us, whether flattering on our skin tone, with our hair color/eye color, or based on our skin type. This list is designed to help compile our tried and true recommendations to help others find their favorites (and hopefully, you’ll find some new favorites, too!).

We are all our own experts and the power of collaboration allows us to come together and harness all of that expertise in a way that can benefit the entire beauty community. Some of the most popular questions we’ve asked have been related to everyone’s favorite pink blush or red lipstick! Together, we can create a more comprehensive list of our personal favorites, based on our skin tone, skin type, hair color, and eye color.

Share your favorites!

Use our easy recommendation form to add your favorite products and holy grail shades to our list.  (Please allow a few minutes for the list itself to update.)

MULTIPLE LISTINGS ARE OKAY! They’re good, even!  If 10 people with similar coloring all recommend the same product, isn’t it a sign that it really must be amazing?

Foundation recommendations can be added to the Foundation Matrix.

Head over HERE to check out recommendations as recommended by your fellow enthusiasts.

P.S. — I put in all the product types/colors I thought were appropriate, but if I missed one (I am sure I did!), just let me know in the comments, and I’ll add it ASAP.
