Guerlain Gourmandise Rouge G L’Extrait

Guerlain Gourmandise Rouge G L’Extrait ($48.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is described as “raspberry for gluttony.” It’s a vibrant pink-coral with strong red undertones. Super bright–oh-so-intense. MAC Force of Love is pinker. MAC Watch Me Simmer is lighter, less red. MAC Fusion Pink is a bit darker and has pink iridescent shimmer. Wet ‘n’ Wild Hot Paris Pink is a bit lighter, less opaque. Make Up For Ever #37 is similar but slightly more coral. Chanel Phoenix is lighter. MAC Impassioned is pinker. MAC Party Parrot is a smidgen pinker. MAC Gesina is redder.

My goodness, this is a neon lip color!  If you are all about the bright lip this summer, you’ll definitely want to take a peek at this new shade once it rolls out on counters this August.  It might be part of a fall launch, but this just screams summer fun.  It’s opaque in one swipe of the product, and you really only need one pull of gloss to get full color coverage.  It has a mostly matte finish but there is a natural sheen to it so it doesn’t look dry or flat.

I had less color transfer with Gourmandise than I did with Luxure, though there was still some.  This shade wore eight hours on me and lasted well through both a meal and coffee.  It wears and wears and wears, and my lips still felt hydrated after I removed it.  Despite the creamier consistency and richness in color, I didn’t experience any feathering or bleeding while wearing Gourmandise.

The formula of the Rouge G L’Extrait has more of a matte finish and a creamier consistency compared to Chanel’s Rouge Allure Laque formula, while Chanel’s feels a bit slick on, though Guerlain’s seems marginally thicker.  Korres’ Liquid Lipsticks are glossier (more gloss-like than lipstick-like), and NYX’s Soft Matte Lip Creams are thicker and heavier.  Bare Minerals’ Pretty Amazing Lipcolors have a more water-like consistency.
