Fall Lipstick: Guerlain’s Gwen
Guerlain Gwen (69) Rouge G Lipstick ($46.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deepened ruby red with a glossy sheen and nearly imperceptible micro-shimmer. It’s opaque, and like many Rouge Gs, wears incredibly well–my lips still looked scarlet after drinking a full Starbucks, and the color continued on like a champ for about six hours before gradually fading. It’s moisturizing without being heavy or slippery; it’s creamy but not slick. It applies like a dream–even color, smooth texture–and feels lightweight.
I think you’ve probably seen me profess my love for Rouge G Lipsticks often enough on the blog. It has and continues to be one of my favorite lipstick formulas, even if it comes at a price. All Rouge Gs are scented with a rather perfume-y mix, but I’ve never noticed it linger and only detect it when I smell the tube itself.
