Guerlain Rose Ensoleille Rouge G Lipstick ($48.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a soft tangerine orange with hints of pink around the edges. It is a really frustrating color to describe, because there’s a translucency to the color that makes this look just a little different depending on your natural lip color, no matter whether you have very pigmented lips or not. It ended up translating to this warm pink-coral once applied. Bobbi Brown Nude Rose reminded me of this in color, but it’s a bit darker and opaque. MAC Flamingo is lighter, less pink. Chanel Flirt is very similar. MAC Blossom Culture is pinker.
Debuting in January, Guerlain Rose Innocent Rouge G Lipstick ($48.00 for 0.12 oz.) is pale pink with subtle yellow undertones. This shade is limited edition from Guerlain’s spring collection, and it is one of four Rouge Gs–I’ll have reviews on the other three as soon as I can buy them. It’s almost a neutral pink, but the color itself is very light–it’s just a pink-tinted version of my natural lip color. Very my-lips-but-better kind of shade, so it may be rather superfluous on someone with more pigmented lips or else serve as a way to lighten them a shade or two. OCC Femme is an opaque version of this shade. MAC Dress It Up is a cooler-toned pink. MAC Royal Azalea is similar in lightness but is a touch cooler toned. MAC Behave Yourself is a bit darker and bluer.
