I have two, and I love them (although I need to figure out how to get Gigi to stay longer on my lips, sometimes I think it’s almost too moisturizing haha. But it fades into a lovely stain, so it isn’t so bad), they’re like the higher end sisters of the Revlon Lip Butters, I think. And they’re so heavy they could double as weapons lol. 
I just got the Chanel Rouge Allure Laquer in Phoenix and the gloss version in Exuberance and I love them too, so I recommend them as well (tho they probably fall under the wider category of lip products, not just being lip sticks). Which are better, the Chanel laquers or the YSL Glossy Stains?

the most comfortable formula i have ever tried is suqqu.
it is a bit sheer, not long lasting and very boring colour selection. I bought lots of lipstics from fancy brands and in fancy colours but i actually use the “boring” but comfortable ones the most.
hourglass lip colour:very comfortable and it kind of fill up the lines on my lips and make my lips looking fuller.It is not long lasting either but this is never an issue for me, i like to apply my lipsticks all the time. and i really want to finish at least one lipstick one day.
then, I agree Rouge G and Rouge D’Armani are both good. I also like YSL volupte.

i tried garconne a couple of times, wasn’t thrilled w/ it. i will not be spending money on guerlain lipsticks, which is good for my wallet.  i would recommend urbandecay revolution to some1, or too bad chanel dragon is not available anymore,
i m thinking of buying burberry ruby, even though i think it’s practically identical to russian red.  

Probably Chanel, YSL or maybe Tom Ford (I’ve never tried his lipstick – I leave so much product all over my coffee cups that it would break my heart!)

Rouge G (i simply adore all Guerlain lipstick formulas but i am just mentioning the Rouge G because only these have high enough price point to be considered luxury lipsticks) , Tom Ford, Suqqu, Serge Lutens and if liquid lipsticks count, Ellis Faas Creamy Lips. LOVE all these formulas

Definitely would recommend Guerlain Rouge Gs too! I don’t actually own any because they’re so fabulous that I think If I had one, I’d have to get another (since they do have lovely shades!) and I don’t think my bank account would appreciate that!

My personal favorite is Cle de Peau Extra Silky Lipstick ($52). They are lightweight and creamy with a glossy finish and don’t dry out my lips like most other lipsticks do. They are also scent free, which I love (I easily get headaches from over perfumed makeup).

For me, lipstick is one of the items I look to drugstore brands for, so I can’t see myself recommending any luxury brand as a splurge. I have yet to find any HE lipstick to wear any better on me than drugstore brands; in fact, my favorites ATM are Rimmel & L’Oreal. The only time I shell out for higher end is if it’s a “wow” color, but that is very rare (or the brand has a fabulous GWP, then the price is worth it).

Guerlain lipsticks and Smashbox Legendary formula lipsticks ( I looooove Petal, such a brilliant pink).

Tom Ford.  I love how creamy and smoothly they apply.  I wear a lot of MAC lipsticks because they are always so fashion forward with their colours, but Tom Ford lipsticks beat them by a mile.
