The Spring Season: Guerlain Gabrielle Rouge G Lipstick

Guerlain Gabrielle (#60) Rouge G Lipstick ($45.00) is a pink nude with champage shimmer and a glossy sheen. It’s a creamy, moisturizing formula that clings to lips and lasts four to six hours on me. Gabrielle is probably on of the sheerest shades of Rouge G in the line-up, but it still gives good coverage (you can barely see the freckle on my bottom lip) while giving you that lightweight/sheerer look.

Is this the right nude lipstick for you? Would you wear it?

The Spring Season is a series of posts featuring my favorite soft beige, coral, and pink lipsticks and lipglosses — all perfect for the first blossom of spring — that runs through March 2010.

See photos and swatches…

    Do you know what drugstore foundation looks good in pictures taken in daylight that is long lasting and is for combination/oily skin? is that unheard of? LOL as well as a highend alternative pls thanks

    I love this color! It is exactly what I am looking for — a gorgeous golden pink color. So bummed it s $45. Hmmm, are there any less expensive dupes you can recommend (I have a hard time paying more than $24 for a lipstick). Would love any other suggestions like this color!

  3. wow I really like this one. Nice and light for spring. I may have to snag one of these us as soon as there is a good friends and family sale somewhere

    It’s a pretty color. I *should* get it since it’s my daughter’s name :-)

    Another beautiful shade from Guerlain! too bad this formula is not moisturizing enough for my lips. I love Guerlain, but for 45.00 I shouldn’t have to use lip balm before applying the color. When I was finally able to get my hands on Gems, I was sooo excited because the shade is perfect for my taste. Sadly, I won’t be repurchasing or trying anymore colors. Thank you Christine! The color looks very pretty on you and I’m happy you love the Rouge G’s!

    Christine, this is so random but I am dying to know what makeup they use on American idol! I love Kara dio guardi’s lip gloss!

  9. That looks really nice on you! But a little on the pricey side for me :( and also considering I’m gonna drop some major cash for MAC GMLOL.

    I love these Guerlain lippies..they’re sooo pretty but they are sooo pricey =(

    I don’t know if I would splurge on this one just b/c it seems like it’d swatch streakily or not opaque enough for my pigmented lips. Then again I should probably swatch before I assume. I’m still loving the Spring Season series :)

    Wow. Heavy price tag…. Will rather buy a cheaper one that looks similar, since this is not a colour that I would wear often. I won’t get my money’s worth.

  13. This one is really pretty. It’s so pricey. I have a few similar to it. I’m thinking Mac Festivity?

  14. It’s looks pretty on you, very natural color in your case ^^
