Guerlain Gigi Rouge G Lipstick
Guerlain Gigi Rouge G Lipstick

Caution: Sunglasses Needed

Guerlain Gigi (68) Rouge G Lipstick ($46.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a new-for-fall shade of neon fuchsia pink with a slightly glossy sheen but nearly imperceptible shimmer. This is MEGA-WATT bright, I swear! Despite its brightness, it’s actually a little less opaque than the majority of Rouge G lipsticks, which is odd. It does remind me of MAC Full Fuchsia Lipstick, which is a PRO shade, but it’s a lot frostier (and thus more reflective). Gigi seems to have less blue in its base, too, and this would make it a touch more flattering on warmer skin tones than Full Fuchsia. I am definitely surprised to see such a bright shade launched by Guerlain, and even more since it’s part of their fall launch!

  • Product: 27/30
  • Value: 7/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 4/5

RECOMMENDATION: This is probably not a must-have shade in everyone’s color wardrobe. It has the same lovely texture and feel as the rest of the Rouge G line, but you may not want to sink $46 into a shade unless it’s one you’ll love and wear often.
