Guerlain Giulette Rouge G de Guerlain Lipstick
Guerlain Giulette Rouge G Lipstick

Just a Taste of Summer with Giulette

Guerlain Giulette Rouge G Lipstick (#63) ($45.00) is pretty much my biggest reason for wishing summer was a little closer right now!  I originally expected to include this as part of the Spring Season, but obviously, it doesn’t fit that theme.  It’s such a beautiful shade of bright pink with just a hint of coral with a golden sheen.  It gives lips full-coverage, opaque color and a glossy sheen.  Rouge Gs are always moisturizing and tend to look and feel really good on lips.  (It is definitely one of the best formulas I’ve tried, though very pricey!)  This is just one of those shades that I fell in love with as soon as I applied it to my lips.  I was like, “OHH, PRETTY!”  I can’t think of any great dupes at the moment — everything is too pink and doesn’t have the same hint of coral or golden sheen as this does — but I’d love to hear from others if they know of dupes!

Guerlain Gentiane Rouge G Lipstick

Lip Luxury: Guerlain Gentiane Rouge G Lipstick

Guerlain Gentiane Rouge G de Guerlain Lipstick ($45.00) is a smooth, lightly shimmered rose. This is exactly what I picture when I think of a rose lipstick. It’s pigmented, goes on opaque in just one layer, and it feels amazing (as all Rouge Gs do). It’s soft color that looks feminine and very wearable for a variety of skin tones.

This is definitely one of my favorite shades from the Rouge G line that I’ve tried, because it’s a color that works on so many levels. You can wear it alone, for the everyday, with a smoky eye, or with a neutral eye. It’s versatile, and I can appreciate a lip color that I can work into my look wardrobe with no fuss.

Of course, the price is steep, so this isn’t a product for everyone!
