Julie Blush (215)

Gucci Beauty Julie Blush (215) Brilliant Glow Care Lipstick ($42.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium coral with moderate, warm undertones–not too pink, not too orange–paired with a glossy finish. It had sheer to semi-sheer pigmentation that applied comfortably across my lips in a fluid motion as the texture was lightweight, smooth, and gel-like, so it had good glide but not too much slip. It stayed on nicely for three hours and felt hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$42.00/0.06 oz. - $700.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to live between "sheer and satin lipstick[s]" with "long-lasting" hydration with "shine" that wears for "four hours." They had a more gel-like consistency to me; denser and firm in the tube, but they glided on readily and had a glossy, wet-looking shine that was almost balm-like without being as slippery as a true balm consistency.

The pigmentation was sheer, as marketed, and most shades were somewhat buildable to more semi-sheer to medium coverage so those with more pigmented natural lip color may still find they show up enough. The colors applied evenly and smoothly across my lips with only a few shades settling into my lip lines noticeably.

They were comfortable to wear over the two to four hours they lasted for, and the formula felt hydrating over time. It is a heavily-scented floral formula that had a perfume-like taste to me when I wore them.

My Cousin Rachel (216)

Gucci Beauty My Cousin Rachel (216) Brilliant Glow Care Lipstick ($42.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a light-medium orange-leaning coral with warm undertones and a glossy finish. It had sheer to semi-sheer color coverage in one layer, which was somewhat buildable (if desired).

The lipstick had a smooth, more gel-like consistency that was lightweight, emollient but not too creamy or slippery, and was comfortable to wear. This shade settled slightly into my lip lines but not enough to be visible in person. It lasted well for three hours and felt moisturizing over time.
