Pucker Up: Glossy Raspberry Red

Today’s lip look is simple and yet elegant–a play on the timeless red lip.

Starting with the epitome of luxe lips, begin by layering Guerlain Giovanna Rouge G Lipstick on lips with a stiff lip brush to ensure well-defined, clean color. Finish by adding a glossy sheen using Borghese Chianti B Gloss. The Chianti gloss plays down the copper shimmer and frost finish of Giovanna lipstick by adding a more raspberry color, but it doesn’t add so much darkness that it nullifies the red color of Giovanna.

    Hi, Christine! I SO love your lips!! Just one question: I went on Guerlain Rouge G mini-website and couldn’t find the color “Giovanna”. Are you sure that’s the name of the lipstick you used? Is it “Gina” instead, maybe? Thanks!

    Gorgeous!! You make me want to go upstairs and try on different lip products instead of eating breakfast ^^

    (“Breakfast?! Who needs that??”)

    Thats so gorgeous! Sometimes I’ll do a “lip look”, but I’m so dissappointed when is wears off! I’m definately more of an eye person!

    Aw I love that, the gloss really brings out the best bits of the lipstick.

    LOVE it!! I even love the lipstick with no gloss so pretty, what a great color for u!!! I need a great berry or red but i’m pale tone with red under tone so I have a hard time pickin out reds for me

    I love this cherry pinkish red concoction! I am always about layer different kinds of lip products, because traditionally I am I “lip girl,” and would go for nude eye and bold lips Only recently the last year or so I am trying more bold eye and nude lip looks. I look forward to this series every Tuesday.

    Love these posts. Just one question/suggestion…could you maybe swatch the products separately(side by side)so we can see the gloss without the lipstick as well?
    Thanks so much for this Tuesday treat. Now I have a reason to look forward to Tuesday, just gotta find one for Thursday & I’ll be set!

    That is such a gorgeous combination! I love that gloss! I’m on the hunt for a good red gloss. When I went to mac they had no glittery purdy red glosses. Next time i’m at Sephora hopefully I’ll find one.
