The Summer Season: Guerlain Ginger Rouge G Lipstick

Guerlain Ginger (43) Rouge G Lipstick ($46.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a one of the nicest ways to wear orange without going full-on orange.   It’s a medium orange-brown color base with soft orange and copper shimmer.  Color is nearly opaque in just one swipe, and it feels lightweight and moisturizing.  There’s a soft shimmer-sheen and natural glossiness–enough where you could skip gloss entirely and let the lipstick shine on its own (and I’m a lip combo fanatic).  Rouge G is the first formula that comes to mind when I think of my favorite lipstick formulas, and Ginger really shows why.

Is this the right orange for you? Would you wear it?
