The Sultry Season: Guerlain Gracieuse Rouge G Lipstick

Guerlain Gracieuse (05) Rouge G Lipstick ($46.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a softly gold-shimmered shade of darkened beige-brown.  It has full-color coverage, and it applies smoothly, richly, and beautifully in a single layer.  This is a great shade to wear instead of the traditional nude lip–it’s darker and more complex, but it’s still wearable with ease.  Rouge G lipsticks are creamy, lightweight, and wear an average of four hours on me.

The Sultry Season is a series of posts featuring deep, rich shades of brown, berry, plum, and wine lipsticks and lipglosses — just right for autumn — that runs through October 2010.
